2017 Chevy Colorado Offers Pickup Capabilities and SUV Comforts
When deciding on the perfect family vehicle, it can be tough to make the call between the multi-seater appeal of a CUV/SUV or the utilitarian practicality of a pickup truck. Now, Chevrolet has made it even easier for families to make that choice. With the re-invention of the midsize pickup segment, Chevrolet has created vehicles that combine the best of worlds.
The all-new 2017 Chevy Colorado offers families a practical, efficient and fun option within the midsize pickup range without sacrificing style, comfort or power.
The Colorado comes with a newly redesigned V-6 engine mated to an eight-speed transmission which creates over 300 horsepower. It’s got all the power you need for towing and weekend adventures, but also features cylinder deactivation to conserve power and fuel while you’re cruising around town running errands. The Colorado averages 20 mpg, which is comparable to many midsize crossovers currently on the market. The vehicle has an EPA estimate of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
For those who don’t need quite as much power, the 2017 Colorado is also available with a 2.5-liter I-4 LCV engine or a 2.8-liter I-4 LWN Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
But the Colorado isn’t just about power and raw capability–it stands out as a true family vehicle due to its best-in-class technology and creature comforts. Drivers can utilize the vehicle’s dashboard 7-inch MyLink color touchscreen to access turn-by-turn navigation, connect their devices via Bluetooth for hands-free texting and phone call abilities, or to play your favorite music. Kids will love the Colorado’s Wi-Fi access and Apple Car Play/Android Auto connectivity, while parents will love the vehicle’s ample cargo and storage space.
Other upgrades to the vehicle’s interior include heated front cloth seats, LPO-level protective rear seat covers, and even a Teen Driver Mode for families with young adults who are just starting to learn how to drive.
The new Chevy Colorado also features upgrades to its exterior, including 18-inch Dark Agent Metallic cast aluminum wheels, a front fog lamp kit, and power-adjustable body-color manual-folding mirrors. The 2017 Colorado is also available in a range of new colors, including Graphite Metallic, Cajun Red Tintcoat, Laser Blue, and Orange Burst Metallic.
The 2017 Chevy Colorado mid-size pickup is the perfect vehicle for families who don’t want to sacrifice the utilitarian capabilities of a truck for the people-moving abilities of an SUV. The Colorado combines the best of both worlds. Starting at $30,820, the 2017 Colorado is one of the most cost-efficient, practical and fun vehicles available at your favorite local Antioch Chevy dealer.
