2008 Chevrolet Colorado Regular Cab 2WD
There are 3 user reviews for the LT1 trim shown below
- Good fuel economy, lots of power.
- no complaints
I have a 2008 regular cab LT1 with the 3.9L engine. I've added a cat back dual exhaust system and a performance air intake with a K&N filter. The changes have added about 20hp...up to about 260hp and added a couple mpg to the mileage. No problem towing my boat. I recently took a trip to california and got 26-27mpg on the highway. I traded in a Dodge 1500 Quad Cab 4X4 with the Hemi...the Colorado is faster 0-60 than the Hemi by one tenth of a second and gets 11-12 mpg better than the Dodge. The only change I would make is...I would get the extended cab...more room for stuff inside....read morehide

- Fuel economy is excellent for a truck. 28mpg on the hwy. 20 - 24 in the city.
- Creaks in the bed, Radio has no front panel aux conector.
I purchased this truck as my retirement vehicle. I made the right choice! The people I know who have the Rangers, Tacomas, and Frontiers all have had trouble and many complaints about their trucks. They all love mine!!! I dont know what people are talking about when they say cheap interior. Maybe Im just old, but it looks good to me. If you didnt like the looks of the interior, why did you buy the truck? The final thing that made me buy the Colorado was that I couldnt get the other dealers to price anything out. All they wanted to do was sell what what was rotting on their lots. I have had the truck for 3 years now and am completely satisfied. Dont complaing about the U.S economy if you drive a foreign nameplate!!...read morehide

- 4Cyl. engine has just as much torque and HP as the sierra V6, power is not a problem
- Only problem I have with it, is that i can't find any good snow tires for 15inch rims
Compared to the 4cyl. that came with the S10's, your head will wrap around the seat with this 4cyl. Power is not a problem, I tow a 1100lb jetski and it rides nice on the road. I can't imagine what the 5cyl. does. With a tonneau cover i get around 2-3 more miles to the gallon on the highway. Definatly get the power convenience package, and the rear tinted window. I also went with the power sunroof and glad i did, its only 400 dollars more and makes the interior look awesome, and also the girls love it! No regrets whatsoever. Will buy another one when this one dies(If it ever does)...read morehide
