The 2015 Chevy Colorado is continuing to rack up awards, with the latest coming from Gawker-owned website Jalopnik. Labeled as America’s “Best Mid-Sized Pickup,” the 2015 Colorado earned the title after the Jalopnik staff across the country test-drove every midsizer on the market.
“There’s really no contesting the top spot for 2015; the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon … simply blow the decrepit doors off their Japanese rivals in just about every aspect of the driving experience,” Jalopnik writer Andrew P. Collins said.
Collins found just about everything to love about the new Colorado including the “modern gauge cluster and a beautifully integrated infotainment display.” He also found the driving experience to be smooth and the V6 engine to be plenty strong enough for modest loads.
While Collins sees the limitations of a mid-size truck when it comes to towing and power, they still possess a lot of desired traits.
“Better to think of Colorado and Canyon as “gateway drugs” for people who want a truck, maybe irrationally, but are rational enough to appreciate a up-to-date amenities great ride quality, in a package that will fit into parking garages or your urban driveway,” Collins said.
Next week we’ll see if the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado can take home the high-profile North American Truck of the Year award.
