Expert Quotes:

OnStar emergency communications
Edmunds

Good" frontal-offset crash score
IIHS

Four stars, front impact, regular and extended cab; five stars, four-door
NHTSA

Upgraded brakes and the addition of StabiliTrack electronic stability control should help the 2009 Chevrolet Colorado improve a bit on its middle-of-the-pack safety.

The four-door Chevrolet Colorado gets five-star frontal crash scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), along with four-star ratings in side impacts and nearly all other distinctions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ranks the Colorado as “good” for all front impacts but "marginal" in its seat-based rear-impact test and "poor" in its side-impact test—that’s for models without the optional side-curtain bags. TheCarConnection.com’s editors note that thorax-protecting side airbags remain unavailable on the Colorado.

The reviewers at Edmunds welcome the inclusion of "OnStar emergency communications," now standard on all 2009 Chevrolet Colorado models.

Conclusion

With electronic stability control and improved braking now standard, the 2009 Chevrolet Colorado likely has reduced chances of getting in an accident, though it’s still not at the head of the pack in protection.

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.
