    Used Chevrolet Colorado For Sale in Flint, MI

    The pickup truck is the workhorse of the highway, taking on the big jobs in landscaping, highway maintenance, construction, or even the family by flexing its reliability, large carrying capacities, and ruggedness. Yet pickups are not one-size-fits-all. Some applications call for pickups that offer the best of both worlds — rugged and strong, but with just enough cargo space to get the job done — and all of those features must come in a compact package.

    The Chevrolet Colorado offers exactly that, plus the latest technology, design, and safety features. If you’re interested in a used Chevrolet Colorado, the experienced sales team at Applegate Chevrolet of Flint, Michigan, is ready to help. Call for an appointment today to discuss your options.

    Chevrolet Colorado Key Highlights

    Since its introduction in 2004, the Chevrolet Colorado — named for the state — has been exceeding the expectations of drivers who need a “light-duty” truck. The industry has taken notice: Motor Trend magazine has twice named the Chevrolet Colorado as its Truck of the Year. Here’s an overview of the features and benefits to help you decide if this is the right pickup truck for you.


    The Chevrolet Colorado offers an impressive set of configuration choices across the line’s various model years. For 2021, as an example, drivers had their choice of 18 different styles, ranging from the Colorado LT, Work Truck, and Z71 in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, in addition to the all-wheel-drive Colorado ZR2.

    For the 2015 model year, the Chevrolet Colorado was available in 19 different styles, ranging from the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive Colorado LT, WT, and Z71. The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado also offered a front-wheel-drive base model. Across all trims and model years, you will have the chance to choose between the regular and extended cab to fit your exact needs.

    Towing and Payload

    You’ll also have choices when selecting a Colorado that meets your needs for towing. The truck’s capacity has grown gradually over the various model years. More recently, depending on the trim, the trailering capacity is between 3,500 pounds and 7,000 pounds. That spec applies roughly to vehicles in the 2018 to 2021 model years. Earlier model years offer a bit less, with trims ranging between 1,900 pounds and 6,000 pounds in towing capacity.

    As always, tread carefully when beginning a towing job. Make sure you closely read the trailering section of the owner’s manual. And remember that your capabilities will fluctuate depending on the number of passengers and the volume of cargo you are carrying.

    Another variable is the payload size. A vehicle’s payload is a measurement of how much weight you can carry in the pickup truck bed. The 2021 Colorado allows for a payload range of about 1,370 to 1,550 pounds. That range has held roughly steady over the various model years.

    Torque and horsepower ratings also fluctuate depending on the model year, but generally sit in a range of about 260 pound-feet of torque and about 300 horsepower.

    Fuel Efficiency

    The Chevrolet Colorado has made steady improvements in fuel efficiency since it was first introduced in 2004. Your actual results will depend on the model year and the type of Colorado you select.

    For example, the front-wheel-drive 2021 Colorado with a four-cylinder, 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine earned a rating of 19 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway; a similarly situated trim in 2004 generated EPA ratings of 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway. You will find Colorado models with lower fuel-efficiency ratings in certain earlier-year models. For example, a 2007 Colorado with a 3.7-liter, all-wheel-drive engine received EPA ratings of 14 mpg city/18 mpg highway.


    Chevrolet Colorado pickups were among the earliest cars to expand their technology packages to include various forms of connectivity. For example, the 2015 Colorado four-wheel-drive Z71 comes with an 8-inch diagonal touch screen with integrations to Pandora internet radio, voice-activated technology for radio and phone, optional expansion to include SiriusXM radio, and a six-speaker audio system.

    Colorado models grew along with the capabilities of technology. For instance, the 2020 model year includes 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities, a key-fob-operated tailgate lock, and a tire fill alert system. The 8-inch diagonal touch-screen entertainment system includes integrations with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy connection to smartphones. The Bluetooth application allows for simultaneous connection of two phones. You will also have options to add high-definition radio and microphones on the driver and passenger sides to communicate through noisy environments.

    Using the Teen Driver feature in the 2020 model year, drivers can custom-program certain vehicle settings through the key fob based on who is behind the wheel. The idea is to encourage safe driving habits. Teen Driver lets you control certain features, such as giving you the ability to prevent the car from shifting into drive if the driver is not buckled.
