“The Colorado is fitted with a standard bedliner”
Motor Trend

The 2010 Chevrolet Colorado offers most of the basics for a compact pickup truck, but the options are rather limited.

Standard equipment is decent with air conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, and folding exterior mirrors all included. Options include traction control, XM Satellite Radio, fog lamps, leather seats, a sunroof, a six-CD changer, and a sliding rear window. OnStar is offered but without a navigation feature—which would enhance the desirability of this work truck.

Car and Driver moans over the lack of “some truck-specific options” on the 2010 Chevrolet Colorado, such as "no protective coating or tie-down rails in the bed."

Cars.com points out the Colorado’s optional "heated leather seating and XM Satellite Radio," as well as the optional "locking differential." Edmunds is a fan of 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.

Edmunds claims that the interior of the base Colorado is "pretty Spartan aside from air-conditioning and an AM/FM stereo.” However, it should be noted that the base Colorado also includes features like air conditioning, tilt steering, an AM/FM stereo, cruise control, and two 12-volt power outlets. Moving up to the LT adds reclining seats, more stereo speakers, and aluminum wheels, which Edmunds believes “is a better choice for most folks.”

A new ZQ8 sport suspension package for the Extended and Crew Cab models features revised suspension tuning that’s 30 percent stiffer and a ride height that’s one inch lower than previous years. Eighteen-inch, split six-spoke aluminum wheels and low-profile performance tires are also part of the package that pairs with the V-8 engine option.

Conclusion

The 2010 Chevrolet Colorado offers enough as a work truck, though those in need of all the nifty extras will be a little disappointed.

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.
