Bang for your buck
Despite its low price, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado has a lot to offer discerning drivers. It offers a 3.6-liter V6 engine which pumps out 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft. If you’d like a balance of power and efficiency, go with the 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine. With the turbo-diesel under the hood, the Colorado earns up to 30 mpg on the highway and can tow up to 7,700 pounds.
The Colorado has more than just muscle. It boasts 49.9 cubic feet of cargo space, an available remote-locking tailgate, and a wide variety of performance-enhancing options that are perfect for going off road. These include an Autotrac® two-speed transfer case, recovery hooks, skid plates, a cat-back performance exhaust system, and an automatic locking rear differential.
While the Colorado’s standard interior amenities are practical and minimalist, it offers a number of available luxuries. You can opt for leather-appointed seat trim, heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and wireless charging capabilities.

How long will the Colorado hold this honor?
Only time will tell if the Chevy Colorado will keep its title of the most affordable truck on the market. For the 2021 model year, it’s slated to receive some updates, including a major reworking of its trim levels, aggressive exterior design changes, and a wealth of new appearance packages. Due to its new-and-improved equipment and trim level lineup, the 2021 Colorado will retail for about $4,000 more than its current price. Even with that in mind, the Colorado will still be a great value.
