      The problem with GM trucks is that GM can make them look awesome on the outside, give them some good features and make people want to drive them but then they put an absolutely terrible interior. I wanted to purchase a Colorado but I just can't live with that material quality and lack of good fit and finish.

      not trying to scare you away from the colorado.. but the 8 speed tranny in v6's is apparently having a lot of problems in these trucks. do some research before you pull the trigger on buying one.

      A nice review, seems to be objective and reasonably complete. But covering every feature in every available model would be a major task. For what it's worth, I have a few comments and recommendations on the vehicles. Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon is a very good medium-sized truck providing 95% of the capability of a Silverado/Sierra for a rough average of $14,000.00 lower cost. In my opinion they offer capabilities and features that cannot currently be found in mid-sized trucks from any other maker. We sell both the Colorado and Canyon, and I find the major difference between the two is trim. Mechanically, the vehicles are virtually the same within the respective models. Colorado's tend to be slightly lower in price, however many features that are options on the Colorado are included as standard in a comparable Canyon. Colorado's seem to be preferred for work and off-road use, Canyons are very much preferred when customers want more comfort and convenience. Most of our sales are equipped with the V6 engine, which underwent significant upgrades for the 2017 model year while retaining the same basic engine designations and slightly higher power/torque ratings. The base 2.5 4-cylinder is a good engine for light-duty use at a low price, and the 2.8 diesel is a very good small engine with high torque, but customers comment that it lacks power until the turbo kicks-in. Our most commonly-sold models are the mid-range LT/SLE models, with good levels of features, comfort, and power at prices in the low $31,000.00 range. Second is the lower trim levels for use as low-cost work vehicles, third are the higher trim level Z71/SLT models at prices of $37,000 and up. However, here is where Colorado and Canyon seem to diverge, whereas Colorado Z71 is used primarily for light off-road use and Canyon is used a more luxurious general purpose truck. We also sell more specialized models, like the Colorado ZR2 and Canyon Denali models, but they represent less than 8% of sales. By the way, for the 4-wheel drive models we sell, when surveyed after purchase most customers state that they simply put 4-wheel drive in "auto" and leave it there, and our service manager also reports that the vast majority of vehicles we service show little or no use of the 4-wheel drive transfer case, indicating that 4-wheel drive vehicles in urban or suburban environments never use the 4-wheel drive feature. One "feature" that we are receiving significant negative feedback on is a spray-in bed liner. The great majority of owners who purchased a vehicle with this feature complain about the rough texture, which can cause damage to paper, cardboard, and plastic containers. Options exist to cover the rough bed liner surface with carpet or rubber mats, and even though it's a very high profit option for us as a dealer, we now will only provide the spray-in liner at the specific request of a customer. Otherwise, our sales in our specific region indicate that our customers prefer the GMC Canyon over the Colorado at almost all trim levels, but in other regions customer preferences could be completely different. As a closing comment, transmission issues have been given a lot of press lately, so here are my inputs on that issue: Several GM procedures exist, such as Bulletin 18-NA-177 that address the issue and provide corrective measures. The bulletin can be viewed/downloaded at the following website: https://www.revbase.com/BBBMotor/TSb/DownloadPdf?id=205367. The bottom line of the issues seems to be a new-type torque converter and a slightly different fluid takes care of 95% of all problems. Also, at our dealership we have received manufacturer information that Colorado/Canyon vehicles manufactured on/after early December 2018 and equipped with a 6 or 8 speed transmission will be equipped with the updated components and fluids. In addition, we have been advised of a planned mid-term offering of a 10-speed transmission, which was jointly developed by GM and Ford.

      I got the same truck. It does have fog lights. It gives it a more complete look. It’s a crew cab. I had a camaro. I got a 4 year old son. A baby daughter coming. So I had to upgrade. The truck is smooth. It has that premium feel . I do feel some power for a v6. I was surprised. It has some height. I did installed some nerf bars. This was on my budget as of now. My goal is to get a zr2. Midsize has won me over a Silverado as of today.

      HiPlains1 sorry I didn’t know you commented. Yes . The lights are on the low but nothing that bugs me so far. I’m not a super fan of leds.. specially when drivers are facing me and I feel like I’m at a kizz concert . I did upgrade the wheels.

      Fog lights come with the convenience package which includes remote start, fog lights, easy lift tailgate, rear sliding window with defogger, and heated mirrors. I thought most LT's were ordered with this. This LT basically has zero packages on it. I just ordered a loaded LT but I'm hearing that the halogen projectors are not very bright. Do you find that the headlights are too dim? It's looking like my first mod will be replacing the projectors with LED's. Probably the foggers to LED's as well. Also on that Zr2 know that your MPG are going to be terrible with the V6. Think 15/16 average at best. The best way to order the Zr2 is with the 2.8 duramax. Then you get decent MPG's and offroad performace. But I also heard that one set of shocks cost 4K to replace (4 shocks per wheel). Its a very advanced system.

      +Shakerhood69 Your right. My above commit was before I realized the Colorado is still having issues with the 8 speed transmission with shuddering/torque convertor failures. I ended up getting a Frontier Pro 4X which definitely has a reliable motor/trans. It may be a bit outdated but I've got piece of mind. And its built like a tank. Plus the Pro 4X offers even more value then the Colorado. Considerably more.

      @HiPlains1, I couldn't help but think of a Pontiac Grand Am, they were trash from day 1 all the way till the final day, they could have had an eternity of time to work the bugs out and it wouldn't help, lol.

      +Jonathan Atkinson Well its been out for 5 years now. That's more then enough time IMO to work out the bugs. It was available overseas first. Probably to make sure they got all the bugs out. But they hadn't lol for the first couple of years. At this point this Truck is rock solid. And resale is pretty good as well. Not as good as Toyota but its right up there. These things fly off the lots for a reason.

      HiPlains1 Wow man. That was very informative. Me personally I do believe if you want a truck, you must go American but in the midsize truck segment, the Tacoma has been the King of midsize pickups and I just wanted to be sure that the GM twins were a solid choice because it’s a newer design.

      I have always liked the Colorado/Canyon, but giving up the capabilities of a full-size truck would be tough for me. I do agree with you on the placement of the shifter, I always prefer the column mounted shifter.

      It depends on your driving needs. I thought I was going to lose my company vehicle so I sold my 2015 sierra 2500 because I didnt want to fight parking garages and city driving. I cant tow my boat with the canyon but its far more pleasurable for daily driving the the hd sierra. Turns out i didn't lose my company truck so I wish I wouldn't have done it but oh well.

      For sure, if you already own a full-size truck I don’t know how you’d go from that to a mid-size!

      On-road it’s pretty good. The ride isn’t as soft as an SUV but that’s to be expected with a pickup truck. It’s comfortable and very solid. I didn’t go off-road with it but I would say it’s going to be like most other modern trucks—OK in very light off-roading. If you want something built for off-road from the factory you will want to check out the Colorado ZR2 (or the F-150 Raptor but that is a full-size truck and a lot more expensive).
