    On paper, a midsize truck with a diesel powertrain and bad-ass off-road gear sounds like a recipe for fun. And based on our first drive of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, it is - provided you actually get an opportunity to leave the pavement behind. On road, however, in an urban environment...

    Say you're the proud owner of a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado who saw the updated Colorado's debossed tailgate (fun fact I learned today: debossing is when letters are pressed into the material and embossing is when the letters are raised) and thought it looked nice. Turns out you can still get in on...

    Once upon a time, crew cab pickups were for logging crews in the Pacific Northwest, not families. That's obviously changed. Whereas the typical pickup configuration was a regular cab, long-bed setup (efficient!), times change, and with it the take rates of various truck configurations. In the...

    The 2021 Colorado is getting a mild update to bring its look more in line with the design set by the Silverado. The new face not only apes the Silverado's centurion-helmet front end, but adds to the aerodynamic efficiency, too. A two-piece design incorporates a front air dam that helps it cut...

    Public lands between Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef national parks in Utah are set to be auctioned off this September. The lands are within view of the town of Moab and the national parks that have, for so long, been the heart of off-roading in America. The 110,000 acres are being...

    With General Motors aiming for a May 18th restart of North American vehicle production, powertrain components, in some cases, need a head start. That's why May 11th will be the first day back to work for many employees of GM's St. Catharines Propulsion Plant, home to much-used V6 and V8 engines...

    Chevrolet (and GMC, by extension) will not use any of the engines currently available on the Colorado/Canyon. In their place will be the 2.7-liter turbo-four, according to a report form Muscle Cars & Trucks. The report, which does not cite any sources, says that Chevy will get rid of the...

    Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has the power to make everything alright. By everything we mean the Chevrolet Colorado. And by power we mean 534 hp to the wheels and 526 lb-ft of torque thanks to a blown V8 with a pulley kit in this compact beast of a pickup. "Want to see something cool?!"...

    Chevrolet will drop the Colorado Base Extended Cab for 2021, reports Cars Direct. Being the lowest available trim on the truck, that means that the base price is set to rise. Starting at a little over $22,000, the Base Extended Cab was the cheapest way to get into a Colorado. The new cheapest...

    Appearing midway through 2014 as a 2015 model, the Chevrolet Colorado and its GMC twin, the Canyon, are growing long in the tooth, which isn't too big a concern in a segment that hosts the Nissan Frontier. However, consumers like alterations that show their truck is newer than other trucks. As...

    Lingenfelter Performance Engineering wants to give the Colorado ZR2 (and indeed any car fitted with the LGX 3.6-liter V6) a big bump in power. According to the company, it will increase the trucklet's power by "at least 35%." A little light math suggests that the power will, therefore, increase...

    Apparently, in an effort to raise cash and help fund electrification, GM was planning to build a midsize body-on-frame SUV for North America. But a new report says that those plans are over. And have been for some time. The report, from Musclecarsandtrucks.com, says that GM was planning a...

    I sheepishly handed the keys over with an apology. Life conspired to keep me from the car wash before the truck was due to go back, and as you'll see in the photos below, I was not bashful about making this truck properly dirty. "Not a problem. Trucks are supposed to get dirty," the friendly...

    There's one more manual gearbox going away for 2019. Though this third pedal, thrown away on the pile of progress and changing buyer preferences, might not be as missed as some. This time Carbuzz reports that the bell tolls for the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon's long-throw box. If you...

    Midsize truck sales are booming, and pre-accessorized trucks sell faster and with more margin than their regular counterparts. Chevrolet knows this, which is why you can now get its ZR2 off-road truck upgraded with parts from American Expedition Vehicles. Called the Bison, the hopped-up ZR2...

    Chevrolet is going all out for the Colorado ZR2 and will now sell you 15 factory race components developed for off-road racing for your trucklet. The parts were co-developed by Chevrolet Performance engineering, Multimatic, and Hall Racing. Better yet, the components went through a trial by...

    As we told you earlier, midsize pickups are enjoying a healthy upswing in sales this year - a trend that's sure to continue in 2019 after the release of the Ford Ranger. It's generally agreed that this segment is not an afterthought, and might be something worth investing in for automakers...

    When Canada's Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, infamously tweeted her country's congratulations to Syria's despotic leadership for its commitment to fighting climate change (a tweet reviewed and approved by 31 civil servants), it became clear that, for some, the...

    Chevrolet has announced a new Colorado ZR2 Bison, a collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) that makes the truck much more suited for overlanding and extreme off-roading. Overlanding is having a moment and is increasingly trendy right now, and this turn-key solution should be...

    Until an automaker comes along with something better, your cheapest bet for highway fuel economy in a pickup is the Duramax diesel-powered Chevrolet Colorado and its GMC Canyon twin. The full-size Ford F-150 with 3.0-liter diesel V6 matches it in economy, but not price. Boasting a 30 mpg EPA...
