The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is a mid-size pickup truck with huge appeal that’s more than capable of fulfilling an equally wide variety of different roles. For those who see a full-size truck as perhaps a little too much truck for their needs but also want the flexibility and capability a truck offers over, and above what a sedan or SUV has to offer, a 2022 Chevy Colorado could well be the perfect fit. Whether you’re looking for a vehicle in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove, Beaumont, or Leduc for daily commuting, trips to the mall, the school run, weekend adventure trips, vacations in the wild with the family, or for work, the Chevy Colorado could easily be all the vehicle you ever need.
Like the 2022 Colorado, the 2022 model year lineup could also be described as relatively mid-sized. The number of available trim levels depends on whether it’s a rear-wheel-drive or a four-wheel-drive truck you’re in the market for. If a two-wheel-drive truck is your preferred option, you can choose between the entry-level WT, mid-range LT, and top-of-the-range Z71 versions of the 2022 Chevy Colorado. But if you want or need the extra capability of four-wheel drive, which is likely to be most people’s first choice, an additional trim level is available in the shape of the Colorado ZR2.
The powertrains that are available for the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado help drivers get the truck that’s exactly right for the application they have in mind. Three superb engines are available, which start with the standard 2.5-litre inline-four that develops 200 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. In its standard rear-wheel-drive form with this engine, the 2022 Colorado is capable of towing up to a maximum of 1,587 kg (3,500 pounds).
Most Colorado models you’ll find at dealers will have one of the other two available power units under their hoods, and the most popular of the pair will probably be a 3.6-litre V-6 that provides the Colorado with 308 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine sends its power to the wheels through a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, and this combination lifts the maximum trailer rating of the Colorado to 3,175 kg (7,000 pounds). If regular, more serious towing duties are what you have planned for your Colorado, the available 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel is the engine you probably need to go for. With its 181 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque, this unit helps the 2022 Colorado achieve a maximum tow rating of 3,493 kg (7,700 pounds).
It’s a bit of a cliché to say that the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado can be any truck you want it to be, but it’s only a cliché because it’s true. Low-spec models at the start of the range make affordable work vehicles for fleets and businesses, but this is a truck that’s as much about the way it looks and makes you feel as it is about outright capability.
A Z71 with four-wheel drive would be a great option for most potential owners as it delivers a highly desirable combination of style, capability, comfort, versatility, technology, and desirability. Standard features include the 3.6-litre V-6 engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel-drive, and an automatic locking rear differential. It also comes with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, climate control, Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus System with 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, HD rear vision camera, remote keyless entry, remote start, rear park assist, and plenty more besides.
The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado has been described by some as the Swiss Army knife of midsize trucks, and it’s not difficult to see why.
