...for a work truck. I had a 2001 Ram V6 that was very weak. The Colorado is lower to the ground and does have a bit of a drone from the 3.5l I-5 on hard acceleration, but it is a much more civilized feeling truck. I'm quite impressed actually. It's a good basic little truck. I thought I'd never buy a Chevy truck but this things got me thinking 'bout a nice Colorado crew cab.
