Price for Chevy Colorado
Although Chevy Colorado has very high popularity among trucks, however the lack of interior quality and the lack of modern driver assists reduce its desirability. So based on this we recommend that you choose the Chevy model who is unique among mid-size pickups.
It refers to the ZR2 model. Оf course it is the highest and most expensive level of equipment but it has a host of exclusive equipment that includes electronic locking diffs on both axles, exotic spool-valve shocks, and one of the wilder fronts ends we’ve seen on a modern truck. We also recommend the standard V-6 engine versus the cheaper diesel option.
Тhe price of the standard model is $26,395. If you opt for other models you will certainly have to pay more so for LT you must pay $28,895, for Z71- $34,995 and if you opt for the ZR2 model (which is our recommendation) then you have to pay $42,795.
