2007 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab 4WD
There are 5 user reviews for the LT3 trim shown below
- Great fuel eonomy for a 3.5L, plenty of room for 4 large adults
- Cheap plastic trim
First off I should mention I basicly only drive my Colorado in Winter which in Wisconsin can start in August and end in June. It is my "winter-beater" or when I'm unable to ride my motorcycle. It handles multiple ski trips to Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, hauling up to 4 large adults comfortably with gear and provisions. It moves nimbly through the snow and ice even in areas where the roads are just ice pack over gravel.
I bought mine brand new with 27 miles on it. It replaced a 2001 Chevy Cavalier 4dr which no longer suited my hauling needs. The dealership was interested in getting an economy car and gave me trade value more than what I paid for it 3 years prior. They also had 0% financing. I waffled between the Colorado and its GMC Canyon sibling, over minor trim differences, which allowed me to play off 2 local dealers as well.
In general I like the looks of it except the plastic fender flares (ie GMC Canyon's color matched flares). Which I removed, had the small scratches buffed out, and added standard mudflaps. I also added an ARE Toneau cover. The interior is a bit spartan but suits my needs, and is easy to clean. Interior space seems about the same as the cavalier I gave up but the trunk is HUGE! My gas milage is near the top end, even with the 4wd occasionally engaged I average around 26 mpg. I only surrender about 4 or 5 mpg to what I was making in the cavalier. (I do treat it to mid grade gas when prices are lower or at the beginning of motorcycling season)
Over 10,000 miles on it still runs like a champ, with just standard matenence....read morehide

- great gas mileage for a truck and has some horsepower
This is the best truck for its size. This truck has great towing and some giddy up and go.

- Looks nice drives like big truck
- lots of problems
Looks beautiful but lots of problems due to poor design and workmanship. Rear window wouldn't work 2 days after I picked it up. A piece of weather striping came loose, by the way it was raining when this happened. Next it wouldn't start and I was stuck 40 miles from home. Ignition switch problem. Now I have to have the engine head replace and service manager said this wasn't the only truck that had to have this done. This happened while I was in for a vehicle recall and had the check engine light on. The dealer was nice enough to offer an extended warranty to the tune of $2000. Hope it lasts one more year because I don't trust it. Next time wooh, wooh, wooh, what a feeling Toyota....read morehide

- push button 4WD, 4 doors, decent on gas
- front ground effect(on 4wd Z71), no standard bedliner.
I have a 2006 Colorado with the 3.5L. I am happy with it overall. We just had our first snowfall here in Chicago with close to 12 inches and this truck did marvelous. I traded in a 2004 Nissan 350z for this truck so I can get a little more usability out of my vehicle (not to mention being able to drive it in the snow). There are a few reasons I chose this vehicle. The first reason was the new look. I wasn't fond of the S10 look and I think Chevy did well with the change to the Colorado. The second reason was the offer at the time. I was able to buy this truck with 0% financing (which saves a ton of money over the life of the loan). The third reason was the 4 doors option. This is the first pickup I have owned. I would say the best thing is the 4wd and the 4 doors option. You can fit 4 full size adults in the truck comfortably and still haul or tow something if you needed to. My truck is the crew cab model with the z71 package. I think that it was a little on the high priced side of things but with 0% financing I was able to get, it evened out. I drove this and the Nissan Frontier and I liked the overall ride of the Colorado better.
As far as the quality goes, there is a little front spoiler on the truck which is plastic that has now broken off half way since I decided to do some off-roading in the snow. I think it looks just as fine without it anyways. It acted more like a plow than anything else. Everything else has been fine so far (after 6 months of ownership)....read morehide

- Stylish, not bad gas mileage, performance
- only complaint is Seating,if your 6'4" or taller, it takes some getting used to
Some people say the Colorado I5 3.7l 5 cyl is not powerfull. I say YOUR SNIFFING GLUE! 242Hp!! and only 3.7L! thats 1 HP per C.I. It is true the Motor doesnt have a huge amount of Torque, But give the motor a few RPM's and she's goin the moon!. The ride is very firm, and GM is the best for Quiet rides. 4x4 is excellent! perfect drivetrain.
Spend an extra 200 for an cold air intake kit, and 30 bucks for a performance muffler, and you just gained over 30-40hp and 2-4 mpg increase(conservative estimate)! I love my Colly! :)...read morehide
