Under the Colorado's Hood
The 2016 Colorado is fuel-efficient because it can provide occupants with up to 27 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, according to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) estimate. You might be able to get up to 20 mpg city. You may get up to 305 horsepower and 269 ft-lb of torque in this pickup. This pickup will haul up to 7,000 pounds worth of equipment behind it, and has a top payload of 1,590 pounds. You can get a GearOn system with this truck to provide a flexible pickup bed. An example of what the GearOn system can do is make it so that you can haul 4 x 8-foot sheets of plywood above the truck's wheelhouses. You can also have a short pickup bed if you do not need a whole lot of space. There is an available G80 locking rear axle. You will be able to choose between a four-cylinder or V-6 engine for the Colorado. Your engine may have forged-steel crankshafts and dual-overhead camshafts. Extended-life components are available for the engine to reduce the cost of owning this truck, but also cut down on how often you may need repairs on the truck. There is variable valve timing, jet-spray piston cooling and direct injection. A 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine will begin to be available in Fall, 2015. You will have a six-speed automatic transmission to make for easier trailer transportation and hauling. The Z71 features all-terrain tires and automatic locking rear differential. The Colorado's turning diameter--41.3 feet--is so short to make it easy to turn around in tight spaces.
Design of Chevrolet Colorado
Let me tell you about the Colorado's interior and exterior features that make it the wonderful pickup truck that it is! The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado has a North American design. You will have triple-sealed doors in the body's sides to provide for a quiet ride in the cabin and the best aerodynamic performance possible. The pickup has Chevrolet MyLink with an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The new phone integration technology will show content from Apple iPhone 5 or later on the multicolor screen through Apple's CarPlay feature. When you use this feature, you can have third-party applications, messages, maps, and more show up on the multicolor screen. If you purchase the Z71, you will have 17-inch aluminum wheels, projector headlamps and gunmetal grille surround. To sum it up, the Colorado has a sporty appearance that other drivers will want for their own vehicles. If you are interested, you can add the cost of accessories into your monthly payments for the Colorado.
Is there a factory-installed spray-in bed liner?
