Here is short overview of 2015 Chevrolet Colorado vs 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. US pickup truck market is richest in the World, there’s no doubt, with Chevrolet as one of its leaders. This manufacturer gives it two quality and very much different choices in Colorado and Silverado. They belong to different classes but both can do their job equally efficient.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado will come in 2WD (rear) and 4WD with two choices when it comes to engines. 2.5L I4 Direct Injection with 193 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque and 3.6L Direct Injection V6 engine with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque will be the heart of this compact pickup truck.
It’ll have a very modern look and will come with three different trim levels and as many cab configurations. Colorado’s interior will also look pretty sharp with solid amount of space and with latest technological features, both in safety and in gadgets.
It will be able to travel a solid 20 mpg in a city and 25 mpg on a highway and will cost less than $20,000 for lower tiers and up to around $25,000 for upper trim.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado comes in seven trims and five body styles. They are all 2WD (rear) and come with three different engine types including: 4.3L V6 with 285 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque, 5.3L V8 that develops 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and 6.2 V8 developing 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
It combines sharp and powerful looking exterior with elegant and spacious interior. On the outside, it boasts with its mighty chrome grille with hexagonal grid and dual power-dome hood that, together with an integrated spoiler, maximizes its aerodynamics. Interior of a new Silverado is more than spacious and no less luxurious. Many features could be found in this full-size pickup and some of the most important are: two touch-screens, MyLink system, StabiliTrak and trailer sway control safety feature.
Depending on engine, Silverado could go up to a maximum of 18 mpg in a city and 24 mpg on a highway. Price range is between some $25,000 and $50,000, depending, off course on a trim level and luxury package.
These two pickups are different in many ways, most importantly in size since Colorado is a compact pickup and Silverado is a full-size pickup. Silverado is better equipped and feels more luxurious even though Colorado doesn’t lack some of it as well. Bigger truck also spends more gas and can cost as much as double as Colorado (comparing the upper tiers). The decision rests solely on purpose. If you need power and abundance of space, you’ll go with Silverado, and if you, on the other hand need a solid compact truck, it is better to opt for Colorado.
