2016 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 than in the Chevrolet Colorado. 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Colorado as you will with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

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. 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 smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

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.
