The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado: The Benchmark in Midsize Pickup Trucks


If a full-size Chevrolet Silverado reaches well beyond your needs, Chevrolet has your solution! The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado is designed for everyday life, whether you live in the Colorado backcountry, or right here in Ellsworth, Maine. It's perfect as a go-getter, a hauler, a commuter, and a family vehicle - virtually anything you might need. 

What's New for 2017
The Colorado has been around for years, and now it's more diversified than ever before. Performance has been upgraded for 2017 with a 3.6-liter V6 that has continuously variable valve timing, direct fuel injection, and Active Fuel Management.  Paired with the 3.6-liter engine, an 8-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission provides smooth sailing and great economy.  A factory-equipped trailer brake controller is available in the trailering package.

Technology has taken a step forward in the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. 
  • Chevrolet's Teen Driver feature is standard equipment on all trims to encourage safe driving practices for less experienced drivers. 
  • MyLink radio is available with a 7-inch color touchscreen.
  • Heated seats are an available option on front cloth seats. 
If you're looking for upgraded styling, you'll be interested in the Custom Special Edition which features body-color door handles, rear bumper, front grille, and 18-inch Dark Argent wheels. 

The Right Size for the Job
Aside from its good looks and technology features, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado can manage any task you throw at it. Despite a smaller footprint than its big brother, the Silverado, the Chevrolet Colorado sacrifices very little in the way of cargo capacity and performance. The extended cab Colorado has a 6'2" bed that allows for 8-foot-long items to fit with the tailgate down. The crew cab offers a choice of 5'2" or 6'2" bed, giving you the right capacity for your needs. 

Using the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado's loading space is simpler than before, with an available EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate for one-handed operation, and a standard locking tailgate. Instead of opening the tailgate, use the CornerStep rear bumper steps to give easy access to the bed. No matter what you're hauling, with 13 standard tie-down spots in the bed, you can secure any size load simply and safely. 

The hauling capacity is also topped off with outstanding trailering capacity. The available diesel engine maxes out the Colorado's towing at 7,700 pounds, leading the segment handily. 


Convenience and Safety
Your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado comes loaded with all the latest tech and safety features you might want.
  • A total of 4 USB ports come standard on the LT and ZL1 trims. 
  • A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is standard equipment (with subscription).
  • An optional MyLink upgrade - a 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation - is also available.
To keep you safe in any driving condition, StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard equipment, as is a rear vision camera. Make your drive even more secure with the Safety Package, which includes Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, available on LT models.

Your Choice in Performance
The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado lets you pick your power.  
  • Choose the 2.5-liter inline-four with 200 horsepower for efficient everyday performance.
  • The upgraded 3.6-liter V6 with VVT amps it up to 308 horsepower. 
  • The 2.8-liter diesel engine gives you 181 horsepower and a massive 369 lb.-ft. of torque for the heavy hauling you might need to do. 
No matter which engine option you select, you can pair it with your choice of 2WD and 4WD drivetrain, and still count on exceptional fuel efficiency while you enjoy its performance.
