The all-new 2012 Chevrolet Colorado breaks out
Anyone hoping for a return to a truly compact pickup will be disappointed. The 2013 Chevrolet Colorado is still very much a midsizer, as many of its dimensions are marginally bigger than the previous model. The overall length of our extended-cab tester measures 210.5 inches, or about 3 inches longer than a current extended cab. It's also significantly wider at 74.1 inches, although some of that is owed to the flares that come on the Z71 model. The only noticeably smaller measurement is the wheelbase, which measures just 121.9 inches versus the current truck's 126-inch wheelbase.
Interior room doesn't feel all that compromised even though front legroom is down by 2 inches. There are no official figures on the rear-seat space, as there aren't any real seats. Expect to see a slightly different setup in the U. S. version that features at least some kind of jump seat.
In terms of perceived quality, the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado doesn't genuinely represent a huge step forward. Although the interior feels well bolted together, it's still filled with hard and tacky plastics. Fine for a base truck maybe, but we expected a little more from a loaded LTZ.
Diesel Only for This Market
In terms of engines, the Asian-market Colorado isn't likely to share much with the U.S.-bound version. There are only two options available outside the U.S., both of them four-cylinder Duramax diesels.
The base engine displaces 2.5 liters and generates 150 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Then there's an optional 2.8-liter version of the same engine rated at 180 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the extra power, the 2.8-liter engine also gets a new six-speed automatic transmission. A five-speed manual is the only other transmission offered, in this market at least.
Compared with the first-gen Colorado, the new truck's power is impressive. There's more than enough punch in real-world driving, be it under acceleration from a standstill or when overtaking others on the highway. It's not overwhelming power, though, certainly not the kind of kick you might expect from a midsize truck with 346 lb-ft of torque on tap. According to Chevrolet engineers, the final-drive ratio could have been geared more toward performance, but they feared it would have backfired when it came to fuel economy.
Regulations in Thailand don't require fuel economy numbers, so there's no word yet on how efficient the new engines are on the road. There's no talk of using them in the U.S. trucks yet, so don't get your hopes up.
A More Refined Colorado
Not surprisingly, the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado shows a noticeable improvement in driving dynamics. GM spent roughly $2B on the development of the Colorado's new body-on-frame platform, so considerable research and development time went into getting it just right.
Handling is much better than before, thanks to a stiffer body, more direct steering and wider tracks front and rear. There's less bounce, too, even though it still uses a traditional leaf spring setup in back. As refined as it has become, the majority of users in this market still expect it to function as a proper work truck, so Chevrolet could only go so far when it came to balancing ride quality and capability.
Like any truck with a stiff rear end, grip can be lacking on less tractable roads or when you get aggressive with the gas pedal. Electronic traction and stability control rein it in for the most part, though, so it's not much of an issue.
