FEATURES | 8 out of 10
The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado has a good set of standard features, and options include some useful add-ons.
Though Edmunds calls the base Colorado "pretty spartan aside from air-conditioning and an AM/FM stereo," it also includes features like tilt steering, cruise control, and two 12-volt power outlets. Moving up to the LT adds reclining seats, more stereo speakers, and aluminum wheels, which Edmunds says “is a better choice for most folks.”
Options are bundled or offered as stand-alone items, and they include bucket seats, power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, and a self-dimming rearview mirror. Cars.com notes the Colorado’s optional "heated leather seating and XM Satellite Radio," as well as the optional "locking differential." Edmunds reviewers like the Chevrolet Colorado's "grille guards, bed extender and 18-inch wheels [that] are also available." Bluetooth and navigation are two options conspicuously missing from the list.
There are some truck-specific options not available on the 2008 Chevrolet Colorado that give Car and Driver pause, including "no protective coating or tie-down rails in the bed."
It’s easy to configure a Colorado for any duty—work hauling to off-roading—though some sought-after features are not offered.
