Chevy Colorado

Postby hellbent » July 27th, 2015, 5:30 pm

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to get some opinions and maybe experiences with this pickup.
I am very interested in it but don't want to get "cat in bag"
Do any of you have it? Know anyone who does?
Is the model LSM offering the 2014 model or the 2015 model? I see in the USA the "2016" model is the one that they will offer with the 2.8L Duramax, which is what this one locally has.

Thanks in advanced.

Christopher

Colorado is best pick up in Trinidad presently for performance and quality. I test drove all as I am too in the market for a pick up. The ONLY thing stopping me from buying the Ltz right now is I am unsure of the resale value. Sure ppl will ignorantly say buy Toyota or Nissan or ford because they haven't had first hand experience with another vehicle only heard the "negatives" of the others.

I bought one of the 2017 LTZ Colorado's and I am thoroughly enjoying it! LSM has some cash back offers on the Colorado, making it by far the best priced fully loaded 4x4 on the market. The 2.8L duramax engine is a torque monster! (More than the Ranger, for you fan boys out there). Trust me the LTZ come very well equipped. Anything that comes remotely close to what the Colorado LTZ has to offer is priced over $300K (waaay over $300K).

I also really like the MyLink infotainment system, it works seamlessly with Apple Car Play. Overall its a really solid vehicle with a lot of muscle. On the whole I think GM has up-ed their game tremendously!

I went in lifestyle on friday , the guy told me flat out it will cost me more than Japanese vehicle to maintain and there is no guarantee on parts availability. Its considered a Euro vehicle and thus come with those challenges.

Now i having second thoughts on this.

^^I think the guy should have mention that, a diesel pick up cost more to maintain and needs lot of love. If you were to order parts for the Chevy, I would hope to think you can get it from then US. Yuh know close than the UK, or Thailand. Plus a lil cheaper and reaches faster.
just my 2 cents....

^^I am comparing Japanese diesel pickups ( Navara and Hilux) with the Colorado. I currently own a ranger so i know about high maintenance...and i dont need to get another with the same issues.

The chevy colorado offered in Trinidad are from Mexico - and yes you can get parts from the US which is a huge plus.
So this means that if i don't want to pay for the exorbitant prices for stuff at lifestyle i need to order regularly into my skybox? Hopefully ROC can start supplying parts for these cause they have are selling fast.

Honestly i like it alot - features etc you wont get, closest would be the 3.2L Wildtrack ranger which is about 100K more than this van. But you need to weigh the pros and cons.

Everyone would be different in what they look for in a pickup - mines is more reliability and function. These days cost is a major concern and i cant make a large investment and expect to make large maintenance cost afterwards. This van i think will more appeal with the tech person that like flashy stuff and doesn't have plans to run up high mileage.

Thats why i decided to stick with my Japanese pickups

The only thing that bad about it is dat if you need to get sum rite away you will have to face life style.. but on the other hand like me,my maintenance dont cost much. And if i have to get anything parts i rather order amd get my stuff in a week time
