Good" frontal-offset crash score; "marginal" for side impacts
IIHS

The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado has some of the most impressive safety ratings in the class, but lacks some important features.

The four-door Chevrolet Colorado gets five-star crash scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), while other versions get four stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ranks the Colorado as “good” for all front impacts, and "marginal" for side impacts.

All versions of the 2008 Chevrolet Colorado offer standard anti-lock brakes, but side curtain airbags are optional and stability control is not offered. Cars.com adds, "side-impact airbags for the front seats are not available."

The reviewers at Edmunds find the inclusion of "OnStar emergency communications" that are now standard on all models a welcome addition to the 2008 Chevrolet Colorado.

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado gets good crash-test scores; side airbags and stability control aren’t available at all, though.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
