Call it the Swiss Army Truck: The Colorado can do everything from off-road exploring and hefty towing to running school carpools. Highly configurable and aptly skilled, it offers a trim for every occasion as well as the rugged-and-ready ZR2. It can tow a class-leading 7700 pounds with the optional diesel four-cylinder engine—as can its corporate cousin, the GMC Canyon. The Colorado has two cab and cargo-bed styles that pair with several powertrain choices. A base 200-hp four-cylinder has a standard six-speed manual, a 308-hp V-6 is the quickest of the bunch, and a fuel-efficient diesel makes 369 lb-ft of torque. Its handsome looks and excellent infotainment system are undermined by a cheap-looking interior and limited driver-assistance technology. Still, the Colorado is a multipurpose pickup truck that is clever and capable.
