Used Chevy Colorado for Sale

The midsize design of the Chevy Colorado makes it the perfect option for drivers looking for something that is built for both work and play.

All About the Chevy Colorado

Chevy first released the Colorado for the 2004 model year, and at that time, it was a compact truck, making it much smaller than the full-size Silverado. For its first generation, numerous performance options were available, including both manual and automatic transmissions, and rear-wheel drive (4x2) and four-wheel drive (4x4) setups. Numerous cab sizes were also offered, creating plenty of options that made it easy for drivers to get whatever they were looking for. Although the Colorado received updates throughout its first generation, it ran through the 2012 model year without any major facelifts.

Following the 2012 model, Chevy gave the Colorado a couple of years off as they took a new approach to its design and engineering. The result of this was the release of the second-generation Colorado for the 2015 model year, featuring a complete redesign that increased its size to the midsize truck we know and love. Chevy offered a pair of standard gas engines for the Colorado with its second-generation launch, though a diesel engine was added starting with the 2016 model year, providing even more options for performance and overall capability. Numerous trim levels have been offered over the years, including the standard base or WT trim, an off-road focused Z71 trim, and more.

Starting with the 2017 model year, Chevy added an advanced ZR2 off-road trim to the Colorado lineup, which builds on the incredible trail performance of the Z71 and goes even further. This was followed by an update and facelift for the 2021 Chevy Colorado, including a revised front grille and a more streamlined selection of trim levels. A third generation for the Colorado kicked off with the 2023 model year, including a new Trail Boss trim level that adds a third off-road option for this legendary truck. Not only that, but the popular 2.7L Turbo engine from the Chevy Silverado became the new standard for third-generation Colorados. You cannot go wrong with any used Colorado you choose, but you can see that the model year you pick will have a significant impact on the kinds of features you will find.

What to Look for in a Used Chevy Colorado

At the end of the day, most of the features that you should look for in your next truck come down to what you need it to be able to do. That being said, there are some common considerations that you should have in mind when looking at different options. As we saw above, different configuration options and builds have been available over the years, including a variety of cab sizes, engines, and drive types. We tend to prefer 4x4 Colorado models, especially for going off-road or even hitting up our favorite campsites and ones with some good towing potential.

When it comes to trim level, the Colorado has had excellent options for hitting the trail ever since it was first introduced, so keep that in mind. You can typically find a Z71 option for any Colorado model year, though you will need to look at a 2017 model or later if you are interested in the advanced ZR2 for going off-road. The kinds of trails that you plan to hit up will significantly impact which of these is better for you, with the ZR2 giving you advanced capabilities that are perfect for the most challenging terrain. With newer models, look for advanced technology and safety features for an enjoyable ride that will get you home in one piece.
