Chevrolet Colorado Gas Mileage

The mid-sized Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2004 as a replacement for the Chevy S-10 to compete with the Dodge Dakota. Gas mileage ratings for the Colorado are solid for a mid-size pickup, with the standard engine delivering 24 miles per gallon (MPG) on the highway. The Colorado is twin of the GMC Canyon and a close cousin of the Isuzu i-Series; all three trucks are built in the same plant in Shreveport, LA.

The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado is fitted with a 185 horsepower (HP) 2.9 liter inline four cylinder as standard equipment. The Colorado’s optional 3.7 liter inline five cylinder engine produces a healthy 242 HP. While a diesel engine is not currently available in the Colorado, a fuel-efficient 16-valve DOHC intercooled 3.0 liter turbo diesel inline four cylinder engine is available in the Isuzu D-Max pickup truck overseas. It would not be unreasonable to expect to see this engine appear under the hood of the Colorado and its corporate cousins in the near future, as highway gas mileage could easily eclipse 30 MPG. Would America buy a diesel Colorado? In a heartbeat …

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

I am trying to decide between a 2005 Chevy Colorado Z71 or a 2005 Chevy Silverado Z71. Both are same price and have their own advantages/disadvantages. My concern is gas mileage and towing capacity…I plan on pulling a horse trailer with whichever truck I buy. Would I be sacrificing towing capacity for better MPG if I bought the Colorado? And similarly, would it be a waste of my precious gas money to go with the Silverado just to be able to tow something better?

Shelby – Diesels are the best to tow with, and deliver the best mileage … But it doesn’t sound like that’s in the cards. How often will you need to tow your horse trailer? How do the Colorado’s towing specs hold up to the Silverado?

#3 Shelby on 07.11.11 at 4:30 pm

I will be towing once a week during the summer, but only minimally the rest of the year. From my research, the tow rating for the two is not that different: 4000 lbs for the Colorado and 4800 for the Silverado. I think that for the amount of towing I will be doing, the Colorado should suffice, especially since I only plan on pulling a little 2-horse bumper pull, but I just wanted a second opinion.
