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 2500 than in the Chevrolet Colorado. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Colorado, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.
