Chevrolet is excited to announce an entirely redesigned truck for the new model year- the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado. With 26 different trims, there is sure to be a body, powertrain, and ride-height combination to suit any driver.
The exterior is modern, yet rugged looking. It has a tough, dual-slot Chevrolet grille and large fenders. This body-on-frame truck is available with regular, extended, and crew cabs. The extended cab measures in at just over 17 and half feet, though all models qualify in the midsize truck category. There are also two body widths and heights, as well as two or four wheel drive. Beyond the exterior modifications, it is available in three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ.
Inside, the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado has chrome accents and trendy, square gauges. Ice-blue LED backlighting give the whole dash an exciting feel. Vinyl, cloth, and leather seats are available depending on the trim level. Although Chevrolet has decreased interior space by two inches from previous models, it does not affect front legroom.
The 2013 Chevrolet Colorado has a choice in engines ranging between a powerful V8 engine to an economical four-cylinder. The 2.9-liter inline four-cylinder that pumps out 185 horsepower is standard. The next level is a 3.7-Liter inline five-cylinder, which has better gas mileage than a V6 but still 242 horsepower. For the best towing and hauling capability, there is an available 300-horsepower Vortec 5.3-liter V8.
Standard safety features on the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado include stability control, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and front airbags.
As Chevrolet says “If mid-size is what you’re looking for, there’s no need to put full-size demands on your wallet.” The 2013 Chevrolet Colorado is an economical, yet capable vehicle for any truck consumer’s needs.
