If mid-size is what you're looking for, there's no need to put full-sized demands on your wallet. The 2012 Chevy Colorado works hard and with your budget, and reflects the standard of excellence found in every Chevy Truck.
It offers the right amount of storage capacity for your needs with its three available cab configurations — Regular, Extended and Crew. Customize your truck even more with three engine choices ranging from an economical four-cylinder to a powerful V8, all of which we back with our 5-year/100,000-mile warranty. It's easy to see how Colorado is the perfect truck to take you on the adventure of your choice.
Rugged and assertive, Colorado delivers traditional Chevy Truck good looks regardless of body style or trim level. Start by choosing between two or four doors and standard or short cargo box versions to meet your exact storage capacity needs. And speaking of cargo, isn't it nice to know every 2012 Colorado comes with a standard drop-in bed liner to help protect your truck bed from scratches and dents while carrying cargo?
The Regular Cab offers seating for up to three and a six-foot cargo box. Available in Work Truck and Z85 trim levels, and comes with a host of standard features including a bed liner.
The Extended Cab offers seating for up to five and a six-foot cargo box. Available in four trim levels, including Work Truck and Sport, to suit a wide variety of driver needs.
Colorado Crew Cab offers more front and rear-seat legroom than Toyota Tacoma Double Cab, letting you seat up to six with the convenience of four doors.
A comfortable driving environment comes standard, but Colorado offers so much more. Available heated leather-appointed driver and passenger seating — 60/40 split bench or supportive buckets — complement an array of standard convenience features like cruise control, an adjustable, leather-wrapped steering wheel and auto-dimming rearview mirror, standard on LT.
Available on WT and standard on all other Colorado trims, an AM/FM stereo with CD/MP3 player helps you pass the miles with your favorite tunes. Want more?

Standard on all models except WT.
Standard on every Colorado, the Driver Information Center provides detailed information on a variety of vehicle functions, including oil life and the Tire Pressure Monitor System. TPMS monitors the inflation level of each of the four road tires, alerting the driver to a potentially dangerous underinflation situation.
Opt for the ultimate off-road Chevy Colorado with the legendary Z71 Off-Road package. It's the package for drivers ready to get out there — way out there, standard on Z71 2WD and 4x4.
