2022 Chevrolet Colorado extended cab

Pros: Refined road manners for a pickup truck; multiple engine options, including a diesel; good selection of modern comfort, safety, and technology features

Cons: Rear seat space is tight, especially in extended-cab models; prices rise quickly as options are added; Colorado (except for ZR2) doesn’t offer the more-sophisticated full-time 4-wheel drive system available on the GMC Canyon

CG Says: For 2022, the Chevrolet Colorado gains a dealer-installed Trail Boss package for LT and Z71 trims; included are off-road-oriented features such as a 1-inch suspension-leveling kit, underbody skid plates, and black 17-inch ZR2-style wheels. Both the Chevrolet Colorado and its upscale cousin, the GMC Canyon, are more midsize than compact, but they are easier to manage in tight quarters than a full-size pickup. Gasoline 4-cylinder and V6 engines, and a diesel engine are available, as are extended-cab and crew-cab body styles. A standard cab is not offered. The ZR2 and ZR2 with the Bison package offer greater off-road capabilities and are the only 4×4 Colorados with full-time 4-wheel drive. Available features include forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, locking rear differential, and hill-descent control. The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are strong entries in the compact-pickup segment. They offer up-to-date technology features and all-around refinement. Though pricing on top-line Colorados reaches into the realm of some lesser-equipped full-size pickups, the smaller, more-tractable dimensions should make Colorado a practical alternative for many big-truck intenders.
