2015 Chevy Colorado: Still a proud part of the compact pickup’s second generation, the 2015 Chevy Colorado was honored with a full redesign for this particular model year, making it an appealing choice for buyers in the used truck market. Resembling less of the retired S-10, and more of the larger full-size Silverado, the 2015 Chevy Colorado is as sleek and aerodynamic as this segment can get. The modern exterior aesthetic appeal blends beautifully with the classic pickup truck capability and performance expectations that drivers in this segment so heavily rely on. Chevrolet focused on making this model year of the Colorado more appetizing to drivers who need to use their pickup for more everyday use, rather than solely for utility purposes. Despite this fact, the 2015 Chevy Colorado has no problem managing up to 7,000 pounds of towing capability, an impressively wild feat for a compact pickup truck.
