The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are the best of the mid-size pickups, at least as of this writing. Completely redesigned from the ground up and launched for 2015, the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon went up against an aging and diminished group of mid-size trucks that included the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma (though an all-new Tacoma is being launched for the 2016 model year).

New for the 2016 Colorado is the late availability of a diesel engine: a 2.8-liter turbocharged Duramax four-cylinder. 2016 Chevrolet Colorado models benefit from updated integration with Apple iPhones, using Apple CarPlay capability, more apps supported, and an enhanced driver information display. Otherwise the 2016 Colorado models carry over unchanged from the 2015 model year.

The Chevrolet Colorado is an excellent alternative to a car for someone who wants or needs a pickup bed. Colorado’s payload capacity is 1540 pounds, more than that of a half-ton truck.

The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that’s also used in the Impala. It makes 200-hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, using a manual transmission or automatic 6-speed. Colorado is rated to tow 3500 pounds.

The upgrade engine is an impressive 3.6-liter V6 making 305-hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, the same engine used in the Cadillac ATS. It sacrifices only a mile or two in fuel mileage. It’s rated to tow 7000 pounds, more than the Frontier and Tacoma, as well as some versions of Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram, and Ford F-150. A Ram 1500 V6 is rated to tow 4190 pounds.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon use a boxed frame, coil springs in front, leaf springs in rear, electric power steering, and disc brakes with long-life rotors. Two-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive is an option. Colorado uses a more traditional four-wheel-drive system that includes a low range than the more sophisticated system used for the Canyon.

Different body styles work for buyers with different needs. There’s a four-door crew cab for carrying people, with a either a five- or six-foot pickup bed. There’s an extended cab with a six-foot bed.

The Colorado drives well and offers excellent packaging and interior space, bed features, fuel mileage, driving position, and connectivity.


The base Colorado is called the WT, for good ol’ work truck. The Colorado LT is nicely equipped, the one many will buy. The Z71 is the offroad model, with its own headlamps, 17-inch wheels, dark grille trim, and hill descent control.

Standard equipment on all Canyon models includes rearview camera, six airbags, stability control with trailer-sway control, and hill start assist. Connectivity-wise, there’s a USB port and touchscreen audio. Bluetooth and navigation are options, as is Chevy’s OnStar.

New for 2016, the Colorado’s MyLink interface now incorporates Apple CarPlay, which uses the truck’s touchscreen as a mirror display for some iPhone functions like messaging, streaming audio, and mapping.


The Colorado stretches and pulls the truck shape into a good-looking vehicle. With its smaller slimmer grille and soft rising shoulder line, the Colorado is not as in-your-face as are full-size trucks like the Silverado. The fenders are boxy enough to still say truck. It’s a global design, and that makes things tricky. The shape has to appeal to buyers from San Diego to San Salvador to Sumatra.


Inside, the Colorado is more like the Silverado, roomy and rugged, with better finish than 2015 Tacoma and Frontier. It feels like a GM sedan in the seat bolstering and aluminum-look door and dash trim. The beefy steering wheel has lots of control buttons, the center console with a shifter is wide.

It’s not roomy in the back seat of the crew cab. Okay for child seats but cramped for adults, in upright seatbacks with not much knee room. At least it will be quiet. Indeed, the Colorado is far and away the quietest pickup in its class. It seems quieter than a lot of cars and SUVs as well.

There’s a step on the bumper to get up into the bed, a tailgate that’s easy to lower and raise, and no less than 17 tie-down spots. Bed creations are numerous, from either a sprayed bedliner or a drop-in one; with cargo dividers, the GearOn racks and carriers, cargo nets, tonneau covers and toolboxes.

Driving Impressions

GM’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder is smooth but runs out of steam over 75 mph. It’s fine everywhere else. It comes with a manual transmission, while the V6 doesn’t, so if your truck must have a manual transmission, you take the smaller engine with it. The 6-speed automatic gets the most out of that engine, working with the 191 foot-pounds of torque. It has acceptable acceleration with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg Combined, same as Tacoma and Frontier.

The 3.6-liter V6 brings strong acceleration, while being more refined than some of the other sixes in the segment. Being a Cadillac engine, it’s smooth, although it makes more noise than the four-cylinder. Its Tow/Haul mode and automatic grade braking make towing bass boats and other light trailers a breeze.

The Colorado’s four-wheel-drive system is simpler than the automatic system used by the GMC Canyon. It’s an electrically switched part-time system with low-range.

The Colorado’s ride and handling are by far superior to the Tacoma and Frontier. The electric power steering is weighted well, has no dead zones, mostly tracks true, and adds effort quickly so you’re aware of cornering forces. The Colorado changes directions well for a truck. The body is stiff and doesn’t roll much. We thought 2WD four-cylinder models offered the best handling.

The suspension deftly deals with bumps, using its coil-over front shocks and a live rear axle and leaf springs. An empty bed might kick over railroad tracks, but remember it’s not a crossover, with unibody construction; it’s a body on a boxed frame. The ride might be less comfortable than a crossover, but it’s not like riding in a Wrangler. We found the Z71’s suspension setup gave the best comfort/handling compromise.


The versatile Colorado does a full-size job, especially with its Cadillac V6 engine. It offers ruggedness with a touch of sedan inside. Good six-speed automatic, real good ride and handling.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
