2005 Chevy Colorado - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Colorado.

LS Colorado models are the top trim level with the sporty midsize pickup truck. They add extra features and more standard power to a model that is already taking the segment by storm.

The main addition this year is a new Xtreme package for 2WD models. A unique body-color front fascia with foglamps, rear fascia and rocker extension moldings, as well as a rear spoiler on the tailgate, new front grille and special badging visually identify the Colorado Xtreme. Four colors are offered: Victory Red, Black, White and Yellow.

Available Models
2005 Chevy Colorado models are offered as regular cabs, extended cabs and, solely, as crew cabs. Base models are covered in a separate review.

Interior Features
The 2005 Chevy Colorado regular cab seats up to three and the extended cab, with its dual rear-hinged back doors, can seat up to five. The four-door crew cab seats up to six.

LS models take the base package and heap on the goods. All versions add a modern MP3 player for digital listening pleasure. Depending on what suspension setup you opt for, the following features will be added: a leather-wrapped steering wheel, front bucket seats, a center console, power mirrors, windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and cruise control.

XM Satellite Radio and the OnStar system are LS-exclusive options. Also available is a 6-disc CD changer and leather upholstery (crew cabs only).

Exterior Features
Both regular cabs and extended cabs use a solid 6-ft cargo bed. The crew cab has its own unique 5-ft bed. A bed extender, chrome side steps and other features are optional.

The 2005 Chevy Colorado is available with rear-wheel drive or with a 4WD system that has low-range gearing but should not be left engaged on dry pavement. Traction control is optional on models with 2WD.

The standard engine is a 2.8-liter inline 4-cylinder model. It can be mated to 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The I4 is able to muster 175 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 185 lb-ft of torque at 2800 rpm.

The inline 5-cylinder engine that is reserved for most LS crew cabs and is offered as an option for others definitely ups the performance level. It produces 220 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 225 lb-ft of torque at 2800 rpm.

Safety and Security
Antilock brakes and daytime running lights are standard on all 2005 Colorado models. The dual-stage airbags include a passenger deactivation switch to reduce injury.

Curtain side airbags are standard on some LS models, optional on others. They act like a protective curtain when deployed, unfolding from the roof rail between the A-pillar and side window header.
