Trims and Features
The Chevy Colorado comes in several cab configurations, offering seating for two or four in extended cab models and up to five passengers in crew cab models. You can also choose from either a 5'2" bed or a 6'2" bed, each of which is available with several storage systems.
The base model of the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado is equipped with a 4.2-inch display screen with streaming audio via USB and Bluetooth. This is the only two-seater model.

The ZR2 trim is equipped with a V6 engine plus all the features of the Z71, off-road suspension, increased ground clearance, and all-terrain tires.
The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado can be equipped with your choice of a 200-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a V6 that provides 308 horses, and a fuel-sipping 186-horsepower turbodiesel. The latter provides an impressive 22 city/30 highway miles per gallon as estimated by the EPA, while the base powertrain offers a still great 20 city/26 highway mpg. Rear-wheel drive is standard with each engine and four-wheel drive is also available.
The four-cylinder engine comes with a six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 is paired with an eight-speed automatic and the turbodiesel with a six-speed automatic.
You can also opt for one of two specialized trims to get off-roading equipment like a more rugged suspension, locking rear differential, all-terrain tires, and hill descent control. Enjoy class-leading towing capacity of 7,700 pounds along with a maximum payload of 1,600 pounds when you choose the turbodiesel engine.
Every trim of the Colorado comes with a rearview camera along with Chevy's Teen Driver system, which allows parents to set speed and stereo volume limits when a specific key is used. The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado has earned a four out of five-star crash test rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration as well as the highest crash test scores in every category from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Chevrolet Colorado
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Chevrolet Colorado invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Chevrolet Colorado MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
