When it comes to finding a truck that’s ready and able to take on everything you can throw at it, Chevy knows how tough it can be – and with a long lineup of trucks and decades of experience under their belts, the engineers over at Chevy know a thing or two about making comfortable, capable vehicles that won’t let you down. Take, for instance, the 2016 Chevy Colorado, which boasts some of the best power and most driver-centered amenities available in a mid-sized option – it’s an amazingly capable truck that packs just about all the cutting-edge technology a driver could ask for, plus a supremely comfortable interior to match a muscular, modern design. But for those drivers looking for just a little bit more to make their Colorado truly something special, there’s no better option than the Colorado LT – a power-packed mid-size pickup with the style and capability of a monster on the road.
Built to fit all the best amenities without bringing serious pain to your wallet, the Colorado LT offers a reliably-outfitted truck which satisfies that itch for premium features and keeps everything easy and affordable. The LT brings eye-catching design together with the needs of today’s drivers to add a little extra spice to the already talented Colorado family. If you’ve been searching for something a little bit more exclusive than the standard model, the Colorado LT is exactly the truck for you.
Here’s a quick look at everything the Colorado LT brings to the party, and just why this boosted mid-size pickup might be the final piece in the puzzle of finding a quality luxury truck for your driveway.
Designed To Look Good
If there’s one thing the Colorado LT does better than most of its competitors, it looks really, really good – especially given the muscular flowing lines along the sides and hood, premium features like body-color mirror caps, door handles, and a body-color rear bumper for that smooth, sleek look out on the road. Available with a short box crew cab, long box crew cab, or a long box extended cab body style, the Colorado LT packs some seriously head-turning design cues like 17-inch Blade Silver metallic cast aluminum wheels with all-season blackwall tires and power-adjustable outside mirrors with spotter mirrors.
Those looking for an even greater degree of opulence can choose from any number of a wide range of available upgrades to boost your style even further, including options like 18-inch 5-spoke polished aluminum wheels, assist steps, a spray-on bed liner, plenty of utility and design packages, storage upgrades, and even wheel flares. Clearly, there’re no shortage of customization options when it comes to the Colorado LT – meaning you can make the truck that’s right for you, without having to settle for second best.
A Comfortable, Cargo-Ready Ride
Looking for a cab you can really stretch out in? The Colorado LT features 45 inches of front leg room and capacity for up to four passengers, meaning everybody will have the chance to stretch out and stay comfy for those long drives to the worksite or the vacation home. And with front bucket seats, a 4-way power adjustable driver seat, premium cloth upholstery, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, you and your passengers can stay swaddled in comfort for the duration of any ride ahead of you. Standard manual or available automatic single-zone climate control air conditioning and power windows help regulate airflow and temperature to keep your cockpit at the optimal setting, and two USB charging ports make sure everybody can stay charged up and ready to roll once you reach your destination. If you’re looking for a more comfortable ride in an affordable mid-size pickup, you might be disappointed – few can match the Colorado LT.
And when it comes to bringing along all of your most important gear, the Colorado LT is ready to act as your own personal hauler – with a cargo box measuring 74-inches in length and even a folding rear bench to keep what you need in the cab alongside the driver. That means you’ll never have to leave behind what you need – and anything that doesn’t fit can easily be set up for towing around back.
As Powerful As You Need It To Be
Customizability is all about what makes the LT such an amazing trim in the Colorado family – bearing more than just the basics, but allowing you to choose the ultra premium options as you see fit. This courtesy extends all the way from the outside in, and even under the hood, where the Colorado LT packs some serious power regardless of which of the two impressive engine options you choose.
Those looking to prioritize raw horsepower will be more than happy with the standard 3.6-liter V6, a feisty gas engine that can pump out up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft of torque for easy conquering of any terrain you put in front of it. Thanks to efficiency-optimizing technology like direct fuel injection and variable valve timing, this Colorado manages an impressive 18 miles per gallon city and 26 miles per gallon city, all while pulling up to 7,000 lbs in max towing capacity behind it. There’s no question about it, this is one seriously powerful engine – and it come standard on the LT.
Of course, for those who get more thrills from driving clear past the gas station than in burning serious rubber, the DuraMax 2.8-liter turbo-deisel engine offers an amazing, best-in-class 31 miles per gallon highway and 22 miles per gallon city fuel economy, as well as a best-in-class towing capacity of up to 7,700 lbs and a best-in-class 369 lb.-ft of torque, all while maintaining 181 horsepower for plenty of power to go around. This impressive diesel option is sure to move even the toughest towing jobs, and you’ll feel great watching the miles go by without needing to stop at the pump every time you turn around.
Tech Built To Keep You Happy
No vehicle these days comes complete without a fully-fleshed out technological underpinning – from automated trip computers to the basic entertainment systems we enjoy and, most importantly, the safety systems that keep us and our passengers safe. That’s why the Colorado LT comes jam-packed with some of today’s most impressive tech, including everything from the 8-inch diagonal touchscreen display with USB, Bluetooth, and streaming audio connections, an available 7-speaker Bose premium sound system, and available navigation to the advanced airbag, seatbelt, and preventative safety tech package that includes a Rear Vision Camera, Stability Control, and OnStar standard for five years. With all this modern tech throughout, you might just feel as though you’ve stepped into the future in your Colorado LT – and with, luck you’ll be driving into the future happy and satisfied for years to come.
