2015 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Colorado offers a bit more room for passengers in the extended cab than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Colorado.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Colorado, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Colorado is a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Colorado carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Colorado is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Colorado doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Colorado for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Utility
The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, making the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the better choice if you often have passengers.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
