The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.0
3.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado checks many of the mid-size pickup truck boxes, but leaves safety by the side of the road. A new V-6 gives buyers a reason to shop the 2020 Nissan Frontier this year, but waiting for next year’s redesign is a better idea.
