When buying a new truck, you want something that has the capabilities you need. But, you don’t want to be wasteful either, which is why the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is the perfect truck. Not only does it boast best-in-class horsepower, payload, and towing, but it also leads the segment when it comes to fuel efficiency.
The EPA-estimated Chevrolet Colorado fuel efficiency clocks in at 18 mpg city, 21 mpg combined, and 26 mpg highway. The highway fuel economy beats the Colorado’s competitors by 3 to 5 mpg.
“Colorado offers some of the best EPA fuel economy estimates of any pickup in a fun-to-drive, easy-to-own package,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager, in a statement. “Colorado proves you don’t have to buy a lot of expensive technology to save money at the pump.”
The Colorado achieves this efficiency with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine also uses direct fuel injection and continuously variable valve timing. Chevrolet designed the truck with efficiency in mind by creating an aerodynamic design and incorporating innovative features, such as active grille shutters to help save fuel.
