With the 2020 model year, Chevy Colorado continues its second generation of production. The midsize pickup truck has a few touches; there’s a newly available remote-locking tailgate, and there have been changes to the standard and optional features. Ultimately, Chevy Colorado remains a smooth-riding truck with outstanding towing ability.
2020 Chevy Colorado is Impressive No Matter Which Trim Level You Choose
There are five trim levels of the 2020 Chevy Colorado, which are Base, WT, LT, Z71, and ZR2. The Base is only available as an Extended Cab Long Box configuration with rear-wheel drive, and the Z71 also sticks with the one-drivetrain one-body style layout (i.e., rear-wheel drive with Crew Cab Short Box). The WT and LT are a lot more versatile: with the choice between rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, as well as between three body style combinations (i.e., Extended Cab Long Box, Crew Cab Short Box, and Crew Cab Long Box).
The Z71 can be a rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive pickup, with the choice between Extended Cab Long Box and Crew Cab Short Box. The Extended Cab seats the driver and a passenger. Step up above the Base trim, and Chevrolet adds dual-folding rear seats to increase the maximum capacity to four. If you go with the Crew Cab, you can accommodate up to five people.
Standard comfort and convenience features on the 2020 Colorado include 4-way power on the driver seat, a 3.5-inch monochromatic driver information screen, Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a six-speaker stereo system, two USB ports and an audio jack for hooking up mobile devices, and Chevrolet Infotainment 3 integration with a 7-inch color touchscreen.
The LT trim level is upgraded with features such as cruise control, 6-way power on the driver’s seat, 4.2-inch color driver information center, remote keyless entry, the OnStar communications system, an 8-inch HD color touchscreen, voice recognition, and HD Radio technology.
The top-level Z71 welcomes functions and amenities such as heated driver and front passenger seats with power adjustability and lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, a trial subscription to SiriusXM radio, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, wireless charging ability, auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and two USB charging-only ports.
How Well does the 2020 Colorado Perform?
On the Base, WT, and LT trims, Chevrolet installs a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which produces 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque and is tied to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Z71 and ZR2 get a larger, 3.6-liter V6 engine instead: with an output of 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission for a smoother drive, in addition to faster acceleration. Available on the ZR2 is a 2.8-liter turbodiesel I4 for increased fuel efficiency. This engine outputs 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, and it achieves the truck’s best-in-class tow rating of 7,700 lbs.
Chevy Colorado Safety In the Forefront
A six-airbag system, daytime running lights, a rearview camera, electronic vehicle stability and traction control, an anti-lock braking system, Teen Driver mode, and an electrical theft-deterrent system are some of the standard safety features on the 2020 Colorado. Upper-level trims are more likely to also have rear park assist, hill descent control, and HD video produced from the rearview camera.
