How Reliable is the 2019 Colorado from Chevrolet

Whether you are looking for a perfect companion to tow and carry your cargo, or you need a reliable ride that goes with your personality that seeks fun and adventure, the 2019 Colorado mid-size pickup truck from Chevrolets line up at Team Chevrolet of Goldsboro is what you seek. The Colorado packs a mean punch when it comes to power with availability of three engine choices and comes with reigning best in class towing capability and maximum horsepower. Chevrolet confidently promotes the Colorado as America’s most fuel-efficient mid-size pickup. Specially configured off-roaders such as the ZR2 Colorado are known to be highly reliable on the beaten track, but we observed that it’s no different with any of the other trims as well. We go through this in detail to assimilate how reliable is the 2019 Colorado from Chevrolet.

Extremely Rugged Exterior Profile

The Colorado displays an extremely rugged exterior profile that seems to throw an open challenge to take on any task or terrain with ease. Bold and tough looking from any angle, it features some very purposeful features all around the frame such as the corner step rear bumpers, an easy lift and lower tailgate which uses the same key as your ignition. The pickup portion is made from roll-formed high-strength steel for extra reliability. A variety of accessories are available for the Colorado to belt and secure your cargo in the way you want. The cargo box can be lighted up using the cab-mounted cargo-area lamps. Projector beam headlamps are standard on the Z71. Trim levels you get on the 2019 Colorado vary on the 2WD and 4WD drive trains. The 2WD drive train gives you a choice of Base, WT, LT and Z71 trims with choice of Long-Box Extended Cab or Crew Cabs with Short or Long box. On the 4WD train you get an additional ZR2 trim that comes only with the Extended Cab and the legendary off-roader, the Crew Cab Short Box.

Uncompromising Capabilities

You have three remarkable engine choices, each demonstrating some best-in-class features that would make you proud to own the Colorado starting with the 2.5L 4-Cylinder engine that delves a respectable 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque and a 3500-lbs towing capacity while stretching the mileage to 26 mpg on highways on the 6-speed automatic transmission. If more power is required, you have the 3.6L V6 with DOHC that delivers a class best 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This gives you enough traction to pull a mighty 7000-lbs tow with the right equipment. A Duramax 2.8L Turbo engine that’s a GM-exclusive is available for adding some heavy towing and trailering capability of up to 7700-lbs with available 181 hp and again a class best 369 lb-ft of torque. This also gives you a best-in-class EPA estimated mileage of up to 30 mpg on highways.

Supreme Tech and Safety

Just as we were wondering if the Colorado is only about ruggedness and capability, Team Chevrolet of Goldsboro pointed out the amazing set of technologies and connectivity options that equips the users. Some amazing safety and handling tech such as Hill Descent Control, Rear Vision Camera and StabiliTrak Stability Control to name a few.
