2017 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Colorado, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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).

The Chevrolet Colorado carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

If you go with the Chevrolet Colorado, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

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.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Chevrolet Colorado due to its slightly better towing capacity. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
