Chevrolet's 2017 Colorado pickup truck offers powertrain options, a host of technologies, and other important features detailed here.

The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado is stable and well-equipped, in the mid-size truck class. It cleverly bridges the gap between full-size pickup capacity and cross-border practicality. The towing power of its alternative diesel engine can reach 7,700 pounds, which is first-class. It is not the best choice for off-road or optimal comfort, but it is easy to drive and tow.

In the second iteration, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado is equipped with a new 3.6-liter V6 based on GM's dual overhead camshaft engine concept. Thanks to the improved variable valve timing and direct injection system, the new V6 produces 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, up to 3 horsepower and 6 pound-feet than the previous V-6. There is also a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque.

For example, the Colorado as a version of a large drilling rig provides a strong argument for itself. Colorado is a medium-sized truck with three engine options and a variety of cab and bed combinations to handle various tasks.

It comes standard with a 200-horsepower 2.5-liter V6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. However, an improved V6 engine equipped with a new eight-speed automatic transmission can be purchased at a reasonable price.

The Duramax turbodiesel engine produces 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission to provide sufficient towing capacity, excellent fuel efficiency and fast pedal feel.

It is equipped with the Hydra-Matic 8L45 internally developed by GM and uses aluminum and magnesium components to keep the size and weight close to the previous six-speed gearbox.

The new gearbox contains two gear ratios, allowing a numerically higher gear, thereby improving stop acceleration, especially when towing or towing heavy weights. The dispersion of the overall transmission ratio has also increased, from 6.0 to 7.0.

Although Colorado is not a sporty vehicle, its V6 engine makes it very fast and handles better than some of its heavier competitors. Colorado's balanced driving quality runs well on highways and can handle rugged roads well.

The towing capacity is among the best in its class, and the steering and handling of the truck make it easy to maneuver in towns. The brake pedal was so soft that it stopped at 123 feet at 60 mph. In the hands of the driver, the large steering wheel feels good. However, the steering response of the vehicle is a bit slow.

The interior of the vehicle is attractive, well-made, and the materials are better than those of some competitors. Overall, it has a lovely, well-organized and well-organized cabin. There is enough space for four people, and over time, the price of the building is also very good.

The front seats have a lot of room, even for tall drivers, there is plenty of head and leg room. Although it is complicated to install more than two people on the rear seat of the cab, the comfortable front seats and optimal driving position of the vehicle make it a pleasant traveler.

Although Colorado cannot hold as much carry-on luggage as Honda Ridgeline does, it can hold more in one of two large cargo boxes. It also has leather upholstery, electrically heated front seats and automatic climate control. Internal storage options include a spacious compartment under the rear seats of the cab and a large center console dustbin.
