Round Rock TX - 2019 Chevrolet Colorado

Exterior – 2019 Chevrolet Colorado

It is not an overstatement to say the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado and 2019 Toyota Tacoma are both great-looking trucks. Words like sleek and modern come to mind. The Colorado arguably has the cleaner and seamless appearance, but it comes down to taste. With the Colorado, you get your choice of the extended cab with the regular bad or the crew cab body style with the shorter bed. Toyota offers similar options with the Tacoma but refers to them as the access cab and double cab, respectively.

Mechanical – Chevrolet Colorado specs in/near Round Rock

The base engine that comes with the Base and WT is a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine that gives you 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. You also have two engine options, and the higher-grade gas engine becomes standard beyond the WT. The gas engine is a 3.6L V6 that gives you 308 hp and 275 lb.-ft. It is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Diesel engines are generally reserved for full-sized pickups, but Chevrolet has decided to give consumers that exciting option with the Colorado. It is a 2.8L turbocharged four-cylinder that is paired with a six-speed and gives you 181 hp and 369 lb.-ft. The base engine that comes with the Tacoma is a 2.7L four-cylinder that musters 159 hp and 180 lb.-ft. You get this engine by default on the SR5 as well. You have to select the option or move up to the TRD Sport or beyond to get a 3.5L V6. Toyota pairs this engine with either a six-speed automatic or a performance manual transmission, and it gives you 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft.

Trim Levels – Chevrolet Colorado specs in/near Round Rock TX

Chevrolet offers a work truck edition of the Colorado, which is actually called the Work Truck or WT. The brand also offers a base model below the WT, which is not usual but gives consumers near Round Rock Texas a blank canvas upon which to create their own Colorado. Most consumers, however, will opt for the LT because of how much it packs in at a great price point: OnStar, satellite radio, cruise control, remote entry, EZ-Lift tailgate, 17-inch wheels, 8-inch touchscreen and numerous driver aids. There are also the Z71 and ZR2 upscale trims. The Z71 is street-oriented while the ZR2 is set up for the off-road. Toyota offers the Tacoma across six trims. The base model is the SR, which is decently equipped for the level but arguably not as well-equipped as the Colorado WT, and it doesn’t have the range of options either. Most consumers who opt for the Tacoma will likely gravitate toward the SR5, which is arguably a better deal than the SR and reasonably comparable with the Colorado LT. Notable additions include satellite radio and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The TRD Sport boasts an engine upgrade. The TRD Off-Road is off-road oriented. The Limited is upscale, and the TRD Pro blends luxury and ruggedness.

Safety – 2019 Chevrolet Colorado dealer

Both trucks scored well in the safety department and compare favorably to one another. Critics really like the teen driver mode that Chevrolet includes. Other highlights of the Colorado include systems for detecting lane departures and forward collisions. Toyota does well when it comes to standard drive aids too, and these include automatic high beams and automated braking for emergencies.

Chevrolet really sets the Colorado apart by offering a diesel engine, which is just unheard of with this particular class of truck up to now. But even if you want a gas engine, the Colorado just offers better – as Consumer Reports puts it – “day-to-day livability,” and the Colorado manages it with “trucky-ness” to spare.
