In the compact category of the list, the editors praised the 2019 Colorado for its engine choices, comfy cabin, advanced tech, and smooth performance. It earned a U.S. News Overall Score of 8.3 out of 10.

“The Chevy Colorado’s standard box measures 6 feet, 2 inches. That is one of the biggest options in the class and opens up a maximum cargo rating of 49.9 cubic feet, which ties for the highest in the class,” writes U.S. News & World Report writer Cherise Threewitt.

Apple Car Play, Android Auto, and Bluetooth audio streaming are standard on the 2019 Colorado, providing a well-connected, entertaining ride.

Standing out in the full size truck category is the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500, which Threewitt writes is the “best full size truck you can buy for your family.”
