Benefits of Driving a 2009 Chevrolet Colorado Truck

The Colorado isn't as refined or quiet as some of its competitors, but it stands out in the market as one of the most fuel-efficient pickups available, and if you keep the equipment simple it's one of the most affordable. With so many different configurations, it's easy to find one that suits you best, and the longer six-foot bed is among the longest available in its class.

What's new for 2009?

The Colorado has a new V-8 option on extended and crew cab models, standard Stabilitrak stability control, improved braking, better fuel economy, and a number of new features for 2009. Solar Ray tinted glass is now standard on some models and XM Satellite Radio is newly standard on all Colorados.

Model Strengths

  • Roomy crew cab
  • standard stability control
  • available V-8 in a compact truck, fuel economy with four-cylinder
  • affordability of basic models

Model Review

The Colorado is offered in a bewildering number of combinations, to suit uses ranging from industrial and construction to farm use to luxury commuting and occasional boat-towing or off-roading. This includes three cab styles--regular, crew, and extended--and two bed lengths.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
