All 2010 Chevrolet Colorado models receive StabiliTrak electronic stability control, as well as a new braking system, first introduced last year, which features better braking feel and improved stopping power.
The reviewers at Edmunds are pleased with the inclusion of “OnStar emergency communications” as a standard feature. Other standard items include anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control, and side curtain airbags.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests show that the four-door 2010 Chevrolet Colorado gets five-star frontal crash scores, along with four-star ratings in side impacts and in 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.
