Find a Used Chevrolet Colorado For Sale in Dayton, OH

The quest for adventure seems to be part of what it means to be human. It's for those moments that the Chevrolet Colorado exists. The Colorado is a midsize pickup truck that provides the power and cargo room you need for whatever moves you, from a camping trip or whitewater rafting to a family reunion or an important job through your business. 

The Colorado supports all those particular outings, and looks good, too, no matter which trim or year you select. Over the years, the Colorado, which was introduced in 2003, has also proven its value as a reliable used vehicle. Our experienced sales team would like to help you find a used Chevrolet Colorado for sale in Dayton, Ohio.

Chevrolet Colorado Key Highlights

The Colorado was introduced as a compact pickup truck to provide an alternative to the full-size pickup. Some drivers needed the power of a pickup but did not have the same requirements for cargo space. Later models expanded into the midsize category.

Trims

Across model years, Chevrolet Colorado has generally offered between three and five trims in your choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Since the 2017 model year, the trims have been known as the Colorado Work Truck, Colorado LT, Colorado Z71, and Colorado ZR2, in addition to the entry-level base model.

Earlier model years typically only offered the LT, Z71, and WT. Depending on the inventory, you may find those trims with either the standard or the extended cabin. As you shop, you will want to understand the configuration you are interested in; because you are not buying new, your choices will be limited to what's on hand.

The Colorado has become progressively more powerful over the years. The 2016 configuration, for instance, produced 181 horsepower. By 2021, the Chevrolet Colorado LT in front-wheel-drive produced 308 horsepower. Over the history of the Colorado, engines typically have ranged between 2.5-liter to 3.7-liter. The larger trucks with the bigger cabs provide seating for five passengers, while the standard cabin fits only three.

Interior Features

You will get exactly what you need inside the Chevrolet Colorado, which offers comfort, safety, and reliability. The 2020 Colorado LT in four-wheel drive, for instance, comes with front bucket seats, a manual seat adjuster that allows the passenger to recline, remote keyless entry, steering wheel controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel, floor coverings in the front and rear, and two USB ports for connecting mobile phones to the onboard infotainment system. 

The 2015 Colorado LT in front-wheel drive has similar interior attributes, including a leather-covered steering wheel, manually adjusting passenger seat, four-way power-adjustable driver seat, power windows, and carpeted floors.

Safety Features

Chevrolet has incorporated progressively more technology into the Colorado over the years to add peace of mind to the driving experience. Some of the standard features in the 2020 Colorado LT four-wheel drive include automated tire-fill alert, electronic traction control, daytime running lamps, accessibility to Chevrolet OnStar and other Chevrolet Connected Services, front and side air bags, as well as other key features. 

Standard safety features in the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado LT include electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring, rear camera, daytime running lamps, and front- and side-impact air bags, with optional add-ons also available.

Technology

As with most current vehicles, the Chevrolet Colorado's cabin is outfitted to provide access to both entertainment and information. One optional feature that might interest you is microphones to enable driver and passenger to communicate over interior and/or exterior noise. The 2020 Silverado LT in four-wheel drive comes with an 8-inch diagonal display screen to get information about the vehicle and access services from your cellphone. The truck comes with a six-speaker audio system; an optional add-on is HD Radio. The 2020 model also is SiriusXM-compatible.

Fuel Economy

By comparison, the 2015 front-wheel-drive Chevrolet Colorado LT earned a combined EPA rating of 22 mpg - consisting of 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.

What To Look For in a Used Vehicle

Buying a used vehicle can sometimes feel like a risk, but you can protect yourself by following a few basic steps during the preliminary inspection, experts say. When looking at the outside, consider the body for any dings, scratches, or dents; check the tires to see if they are in good condition and have a regular wear pattern. Inside the vehicle, look for signs of wear, such as rips or stains. Make sure you always test drive the vehicle and, where possible, check the vehicle history reports. Many dealers now include them in the sale process.

One way to make this process easier is to consider buying a certified pre-owned vehicle like those we offer at White Allen Chevrolet of Dayton, Ohio. Certified pre-owned vehicles undergo extensive presale inspections both inside and out and usually come with an extended warranty.
