Review

 

At the Chevrolet dealership in New Ulm, Minnesota, we house the new 2022 Chevrolet Colorado. This gleaming giant of a pickup appeases consumers who desire the flexibility of a conventional truck without the trade-off of a full-size pickup. 

 

The half-ton Chevy Silverado 1500 provides a commodious back seat as well as a higher towing capacity. However, the mid-size Colorado is more responsive in regard to maneuverability while still possessing a noteworthy maximal tow rating of about 7700 pounds. 

 

Additionally, the available 308-hp V-6 is both receptive and prompt, and the diesel alternative is economical and forceful, generating a considerable 369 pf. The 2022 Colorado offers a pleasant driving position and strapping infotainment system that add to the traditional pickup experience. 

What's Expected for 2022?

In 2022, the only modification to the lineup is the novel dealer-installed Trail Boss bundle. It may not be as aggressive as the confidguration on the ZR2, but it does improve the all-terrain capacities of the LT in addition to the Z71. Moreover, the bundle contributes a leveling kit; giving the suspension a raise of 1.0-inch and bolts skid plates to the front and the middle of its underbody. 

Cost And Which Trim to Purchase

We suggest the trim that makes the Chevy distinct among mid-size trucks. That's the bolstered, all-encompassing ZR2 model. Yes, it's the most costly model, but it offers a myriad of exclusive gear and equipment such as electronic locking differentials on the axles, exotic spool-valve shocks, as well as one of the most untamed front ends we've ever witnessed on a contemporary pickup. 

In regard to pricing, the Work Truck on the lower end goes for $26,930, while on the opposite end of the spectrum, the ZR2 tops out at $44,045, respectively. 

Engine, Performance, and Transmission

The Colorado provides a powertrain for almost everybody: a base four-cylinder coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, a prompt 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic, as well as a 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder that generates a masterful 369 pf of torque. We assessed the diesel as well as the gasoline V-6, and even though drastically different in temperament, both will offer great utility to its owner. 

Towing and Payload Capacity

Tapping into the Colorado's maximal towing capacities demands the Trailering Equipment bundle. The baseline Colorado with the four-cylinder can haul up to 3500 pounds, respectively. Trailer-sway control—which exerts the brakes of both the pickup as well as the trailer if the network detects the latter is oscillating excessively—comes as standard-equipment on each Colorado.

Interior, Cargo, and Comfort

Those intimate with front seats of full-size pickups will enjoy the Colorado, which offers a commodious cockpit. A center-console in addition to a large compartment underneath the crew cab's back seat offers a hefty storehouse of cabin space. Moreover, the Colorado's 41-c f short box as well as the 50-c f long box outshine the Ridgeline's maximal of 34 cubes.

Infotainment and Connectedness

With a Wi-Fi hotspot, two responsive touchscreens, in addition to the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium network, the Colorado confidently claims the peak of its division in regards infotainment attributes. Furthermore, the base pickup now provides a 7.0-inch touchscreen that includes Android Auto capability, Apple CarPlay, as well as Bluetooth audio streaming for two devices. All other trims boast an 8.0-inch monitor, feature appealing menus, as well as receptive touch functions.
