In terms of standard features, the 2009 Chevrolet Colorado offers what you’d expect from a compact truck, though options don’t include what you might desire when upgrading into something more than a base model vehicle.

Some truck-specific options not available on the 2009 Chevrolet Colorado, including "no protective coating or tie-down rails in the bed," give Car and Driver pause.

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." While most options are bundled or offered as stand-alone items, including bucket seats, power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, and a self-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth and navigation are two options conspicuously missing from the list.

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.”

Conclusion

As a work truck, the 2009 Chevrolet Colorado offers everything necessary, but as anything more, it lacks the standard features and options of its competitors.

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.
