2015 Colorado Overview

Be it in the category of luggage, pocket knives, personal computers or cars, the concept of an all-in-one, do-everything product is attractive to a lot of consumers. Why fuss around with stocking your pockets with toothpicks and tiny saws, asks Victorinox, when one well-packaged device can offer up all the functionality that a Swiss Army regular might ever need? The needs, wants and would-love-to-haves of drivers are no less complex than those of multi-tool wielders, and there are certainly a great many shoppers that require their perfect vehicle to do everything pretty well. A huge percentage of us really only need a couple of seats and the ability to get up to 70 miles per hour with a reasonable degree of safety on a daily basis. But that doesn't stop us from wanting a vehicle that can also take our entire family along for the ride, haul a 60-inch plasma back from Best Buy and throw the snowmobile trailer on, just in case the mood strikes to do some sledding. I pretty much never have to do all of that all at once. Be honest, neither do you. But the groundswell of popularity for SUVs and crossovers – to say nothing of our decades-long love affair with the pickup truck – can trace its roots to that utilitarian mindset. For many Americans, for a lot of years now, the perfect answer to the do-everything question has been a small or midsize pickup. Small trucks require compromises in interior space, and their fuel economy generally isn't leaps and bounds better than their fullsize counterparts. However, they offer just enough towing and hauling capability to go along with wieldy driving and parking manners, and, critically, a comparatively painless price point. Considering the longtime class-leader Toyota Tacoma is well past its prime, Chevrolet believes the time is right to reintroduce its midsize Colorado, now with more on offer than ever when it comes to livable, daily-drivable, multi-purpose behavior. Asking fewer compromises than ever before, does this Colorado stack up solidly against the fullsize-truck bargains, and the now-ubiquitous small crossovers? I thrashed on one in Southern California in an attempt to find out. The Colorado offers a controlled ride with good isolation of road harshness for the driver. Actually, my stint in the new Colorado (followed by seat time in its GMC Canyon twin... look for more on that soon) was already the second invitation I'd gotten to wheel The General's new pickup. Chevy officials asked me out to a super-secret early preview of the truck at the company's Milford Proving Grounds this summer, where I was to vet the ride, handling and powertrain performance in some not-production-ready prototypes on a piece of road course that incorporated sections of diverse surfaces (broken concrete, washboard ridges, etc.) as well as a section to go flat out and attempt hard cornering. What's more, the team even brought along a Toyota Tacoma and a Nissan Frontier for direct comparisons, as well as a Ford Escape to prove …
