Which Chevrolet Truck Is Right For Me? Silverado vs.Colorado

When it comes to finding the best truck for your needs, the Chevy Silverado and Colorado are both tough trucks that can handle any job site. While the Chevy Colorado is compact, the Silverado is a full-size pickup truck that offers consumers a bit more room. With great options and benefits between both trucks, how do you choose which truck is right for you? 

 
At Liberty Chevrolet, we've put these two popular pickup trucks head to head, so you can find the best vehicle for your needs. Let's get started!

Which Chevy Truck Fits Your Budget?

If you're shopping for a new truck on a budget, the compact Chevy Colorado will be a bit easier on the wallet. In fact, the Chevrolet Colorado base model is $8,000 less than the Chevrolet Silverado base model. At the top end, the Colorado ZR2 is about $10,000 less than the Silverado High Country. 

 

Which Chevy Pickup Truck Offers More Interior Space?

The Chevrolet Silverado offers consumers more interior space with a spacious cab that seats two and six, depending on the cab and seating configuration you choose. While the Colorado's extended cab's rear seat is a bit crowded, the Silverado's is spacious and comfort. Therefore, if you plan on utilizing your cab's rear seat, we suggest you opt for the Silverado.

 

Technology Features Of The Chevrolet Colorado And Silverado

Both pickup trucks offer plenty of technology options and safety features. Inside the Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado, you'll find options such as 4G LTE data connection, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Each truck can be upgraded with 7 or 8 inch touch-screen infotainment systems and Bose premium audio systems.

For your peace of mind, the Colorado and Silverado are equipped with the best safety features. Both trucks include rear view cameras and Chevy's Teen Driver System, so you can monitor your teen's behavior behind the wheel. The Silverado offers slightly more advanced safety features, including a low-speed automatic emergency braking system and safety alert seats that vibrate with forward collision warnings.

 

Explore Cargo Space & Towing Capability

One of the most important factors when choosing your pickup truck is the vehicle's capability. It's important to compare the truck's towing and hauling capabilities.

The compact Chevrolet Colorado offers a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, while the Silverado offers more power with a 12,500 pound towing capacity. Additionally, the Silverado offers a 2,250 pound payload, compared with the Colorado's 1600 pounds. If you are looking for a great light-duty pickup truck, you'll want to opt for the Colorado. Need a bit more power? We recommend the Chevrolet Silverado. With the Silverado, you'll also get more cargo space, as the Silverado includes an 8-foot bed option.
