Chevrolet has not shown that the details of the performance of the new Colorado. It is worth noting, however, that Chevrolet had said that type of driving the pickup will have – a 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine – with the understanding that the exit numbers are stored in the dark. So for a little ‘perspective on what was in Serbia for the current generation of Colorado has a couple of engine options including a 2.8-liter I-4 produces 185 hp and 190 kg / m of torque, a 3 , 7 – the liter-5-242 hp and 242 kg / m of torque, 5.3-liter V8 and a peak 300 hp and 320 kg / m of torque produced produce. Max vehicle reaches of the Colorado all the way up to 6,000 kg.
The interior of the Chevrolet Colorado has comes with an unmistakable Chevrolet design language. There’s a dual-cockpit instrument panel whose continuous lines create a wrap-around effect, giving the entire cabin a spacious feel. The overall space is accented by an ice-blue lighting and double-faced leather trimmed seats. The aforementioned instrument panel comes with motorcycle-inspired, three-dimensional gauges, providing the look of sportiness and rugged aggression.
The light-colored seats make a nice contrast to the dark wood trim and accented with chrome and low-gloss and soft-touch materials, giving the Colorado’s cabin a luxurious environment mixed with all-around utility in the form of storage compartments found throughout the interior, including a large, dual glovebox and a covered center bin that can be used for whatever knick-knacks the owner might have. Other features include a digital climate control system that comes with a state-of-the-art infotainment system, highlighted by a 7” LCD display in the center stack.
Like the performance specs, prices for the Colorado were not announced. Needless to say, the 2011 Colorado – the current-generation model – comes with a base price of $17,045 and going all the way up to around $29,000 for the top-of-the-line version. Just to be clear, though: these prices are not the prices for the 2012 Colorado, but of the current generation version that’s out on the market today.
Given that Chevrolet decided to keep mum on the performance details, it’s hard to measure just how the new Colorado stacks up against the competition. Having said that, there are a number of other mid-size pick-ups in the market that can be considered as worthy rivals, including the Dodge Dakota and the Ford Ranger.
The Dodge Dakota comes standard with a 3.7-liter Magnum V-6 engine producing 210 horsepower and 235 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine also comes with Electronic Throttle Control for positive throttle response, and exhaust gas recirculation to help lower emissions. Meanwhile, the new Ford Ranger is powered by a new 3.2-liter, Ford Duratorq TDCi I5 diesel engine that produces 198 horsepower and 346 lb/ft of torque. Keep this figures in mind when the performance details of the new Colorado are released. Something tells us that the folks over at Chevrolet are working hard to ensure that their new mid-size pick-up has superior numbers than its competitors.
