I just bought 2017 colo with v6 engine z71 pkg..

I had the fully loaded z71 2009 with i5 engine ..TERRIBLE truck at 47,000 miles garage kept ,oil changed at 4,000 miles etc etc....

..

I do like 2009 style over new style truck..If i had family I would not buy the extended cab version which i did.I put my hunting dog behind seat..
bigger trucks fully loaded I could get for $37,000.00 they are knocking $10,000.00 off big chevy silverados..Colorados are $36,000.00/38,000.00..

washing big trucks I do not like .parking in garage is hard with bigger trucks .

My only complaint is why big trucks have $10,000.00 dollar discount below what Colorados sell for ..Full size trucks come with raised letter tires etc etc..

Most said Jim why buy colorado when it was piece of junk on 2009...I like v-6 idea so far..
looked at nissans fully loaded and they were $31,000.00 7,000.00 cheaper than colorados but I am chevy man hard to just leave BUT many are leaving all my relatives went to nissans/toyotas guess what they do not change oil and beat hell out of them and they run,run..

Maybe I took to good of care of my i5 truck..

I wish there was way to keep v-6 in v-4 when driving local..I am getting 25.5mpg but it switchs in out a lot...This truck is higher off ground than my 2009...

engine is very quite..Ride is just great and steering is much better than 2009..

WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT BRAKES...My 2009 was terrible on brakes these 4 wheel disc are great and 8 speed trans slows you donw I very seldom have to hit brakes only at lights etc..

2009 was terrible on gas mileage with i5 and used oil ....

SO FAR I like this 2017 ...

Firs thing, all vehicles are expensive now. I had a 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS and it priced for just at $40K brand new. I just put together the exact car for the new 6th gen, 2016 model, and it is now a $52K car.snaptube vidmate
