2017 Chevrolet Colorado

In its first two years of production, the Colorado was named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year, and the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado is even better. For Tampa and Sarasota drivers searching for the perfect balance of power, performance, and amenities, there are few that even come close to the Cox Chevrolet’s favorite midsized truck.

2017 Chevrolet Colorado Reviews

Critics adore the award-winning Chevrolet Colorado, and they aren’t afraid to say so:

  • The Car Connection: “With its roomy interior and nice finishings, the Colorado is an excellent mid-size truck.”
  • Forbes: “With three inches of additional legroom versus the competition, along with flexible seating that allows for flip-up and fold-flat rear seats, the crew cab models offer realistic and comfortable space for four adults.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “The transmission shifts smoothly and quickly, and we’ve already been impressed with the Colorado’s smooth and controlled ride and around-town maneuverability.”
  • Car and Driver: “The quiet, clever, and capable Colorado offers nearly as much utility as full-size pickups—minus the lane-hogging size.”
