2011 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab 2WD User Reviews
- $13,867 - $18,796
- Excellent performance, handling, economy for a V-8.
- Interior is lesser quality than rhe rest of the truck.
Purchased As New
I bought one of these only because of the 5.3 V-8 option. I was not disappointed. I have put 15K miles on it without any issues. I have the Z-71 package with 2 wheel drive. It was on the lot, but was what I wanted. Mileage is 16-18 in town and 21 on the road. Very responsive, quick, and handles perfectly.
Ride is exceptionallty crisp but not abusive, no rattles or leaks and I didn't want the 4 wheel drive with the added weight and maintenance so even better for my taste. Adds to performance and economy with the less weight and I don't need the 4 wheel drive.
This is the best small GM truck I have ever bought. Only drawback is the interior feels and looks a llttle cheap, but is comfortable on trips . I would not buy one of these without the V-8. This makes the package and it's economic.
I hope GM hears me because I hear they may drop this model in 2012. I may buy another one and just store it. It will be a classic some day....read morehide

There are two Colorado's. The work truck and 1LT has coil spring on strut with small tires (rough ride bad handling). Then there is the 2LT (Z71 off road package) that has front torsion bar suspension with 17" wheels. This makes all the world difference in ride and handeling. I have the 2WD version which is the same as the 4WD minus the front diff. The engine is responsive and handles very well. I haven"t had it long enough to tell how well the fuel econmy is yet but it gets better than my 96 S-10 that I had prevously. The 2LT had all the options I wanted except the trailer package which I added for $270 more. If there was anything I would change it would be to add more padding in door arm rest, have a shielf or compartment in center of dash near aux outlets. The radio has a MP3 player but no plug for an ipod. This truck has improved over the years and could be even better with improved interior, 6 speed auto (like in the Silverado) and an updated grill. I can't beleve GM is not going to make a small pickup after 2011. I am very happy with my 2011 Colorado....read morehide
