2008 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab 4WD
There are 2 user reviews for the LS trim shown below
- Looks good. Lots of pulling power. It's a tough little guy.
- Poor acceleration. Poor turning radius.
Purchased As New
This is my second LS extended cab 4wd and both have had the 5-cyl. eng. and are automatic. Fuel economy is descent at around 18-19 mpg, but the acceleration is definately not there. This is a truck that was geared for pulling. Weight is not on its side so the transmission is its saving grace. Descent ride. Tires make all the difference. Turning radius was not a first thought with the designers either....read morehide

- decent gas mileage and power for a small truck. I like the looks of it.
- seats could be a bit better. the grill and headlight assemblies are pretty weak.
I get 18-19 mpg just drivin around the backroads. Have gotten 22 on the interstate. I kinda wonder how much better that would have been if i hadnt been going 75-80 mph. My truck is an 04 and has 58000 miles on it. I havent had any of the trouble I have read about on this model so far. My biggest complaint about this truck is the wind noise im getting from the passenger door. It rides and handles like a 4x4 should. It feels stiff and solid on the road. I have pulled a full size diesel pickup on a trailer with it and towed a 8000 pound tractor minus the trailer. Hills hurt but it did pretty well otherwise. Overall I cant complain about my little truck. It does all I need to do and then some. As I said I have read alot of horror stories about this model although I have been lucky enough not to experience any. I would buy another one when the time comes. It would be nice to see a diesel engine in these that got 30 mpg....read morehide
