The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado boasts impressive fuel efficiency and best-in-class towing and hp. With available high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi® and available advanced safety features that include Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, the Colorado is a prime candidate for your fleet.
GETTING YOU THERE
Colorado offers several engine options so you can be sure to get the power you need. The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine provides 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. Also available is the 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine, which offeres 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6-liter DOHC V6 engine offers an impressive 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. Whether you’re making the rounds or hauling equipment, the Colorado has you covered.
Plus, Chevrolet’s trailering guide can help you find the maximum amount of weight your Colorado can confidently trailer. Colorado is designed to perform seamlessly from urban to rural terrain.
YOU’LL LOVE DRIVING
There’s nothing worse than feeling every bump and hiccup when driving down the road. Don’t worry about that. With Colorado’s fully boxed frame and shear-style mounts, you can expect a smooth ride on almost any surface. “Four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife™ brake rotors help reduce wheel shudder, and Electric Power Steering provides a confident feel,” according to Chevrolet.
Driver comfort is a key consideration for driver retention, and Chevrolet knows that. That’s why the Colorado features inlaid triple-sealed doors, thick windshield and side glass, and liquid-applied sound deadener to help keep outside noise out. You’d be hard-pressed to find a quieter midsize truck on the road today.
The Colorado is packed with tech. In addition to the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi—which, by the way, can connect to seven different devices—there’s also the available Chevrolet MyLink with an eight-inch diagonal color touch-screen display. Using Apple CarPlayTM, connect your iPhone® to the Chevrolet MyLink display to get directions and make calls. Not an Apple user? That’s okay. Connect your compatible Android smartphone to the Chevrolet MyLink display to access select apps, send and receive hands-free text messages, and more.
DON’T FEAR THE ROAD
With Colorado’s active safety technologies, drivers can feel more secure on the road. Accidents may happen, but Chevrolet has made sure to implement extensive safety precautions to mitigate damage and reduce the likelihood of human-error accidents with its Prevent, Protect, Respond method.
Prevent: Chevrolet offers proactive automotive safety technologies, including the Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System that’s standard on all Chevrolet vehicles; Lane Keep Assist, an available camera-based system that warns the driver when s/he is unintentionally drifting from the lane; Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which uses radar sensors to detect other vehicles approaching from either direction; available Forward Collision Alert systems, which use camera technology and/or available radar to alert the driver to detected slowing vehicles; and available Forward Automatic Braking system, which detects when a front-end collision situation is imminent while following a detected vehicle.
Protect: In the event an accident can’t be prevented, the Colorado has six standard air bags to cushion the blow. Plus, its high-strength steel safety cage is designed for maximum impact safety.
Respond: You won’t have to worry about drivers being stranded after an accident. Your new Colorado comes with OnStar® Guidance Plan with OnStar Automatic Crash Response system standard for three months.
