“With the advantages of diesel capability and fuel economy in something smaller than a full size pickup, the Colorado offers a combination not available with any rival except the nearly identical GMC Canyon,’ writes U.S. News & World Report writer Jim Travers.

The available Duramax 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine is rated at 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, it can tow a maximum of 7,700 pounds. The 2020 Chevy Colorado also boasts an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 30 mpg on the highway, a best-in-class accomplishment.

“The Colorado also serves up a nice interior with plenty of standard and available features including easy-to-use infotainment. Unlike a lot of other diesel trucks, it may even fit in your garage,” Travers writes.

Available wireless charging, smartphone integration via available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot offers seamless connectivity while on the road. Everything entertainment-related is easily accessible and changed through the latest generation of the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System.
