The rugged and useful 2004 Chevy Colorado has the genes of its predecessor, the Chevy S10, running through its veins though a casual comparison of the two side-by-side would reveal almost no resemblance between the two midsize pickup trucks. This useful and stylish pickup truck made its debut in 2004 was the result of a joint design effort taking place between parent company General Motors' United States division and GM's Brazil operations.
The Chevy Colorado pickup truck is made in one of two plants, with the most recognizable and well known plant churning out these trucks down in Shreveport, Louisiana. The truck itself offers both automatic transmissions and manual transmissions as a part of its equipment package. Additionally, there are a wide range of engines available.
Back in 2004, the Chevy Colorado was presented as a midsize pickup that also understood that fuel economy could be an important thing. Chevrolet and its parent, General Motors, took care to make sure that several different engines were available ranging in size from an in-line four-cylinder at 2. 8 L all the way up to a small block V-8 at 5. 3 L. They come with either a five speed manual or a four speed automatic.
The 2004 Chevrolet Colorado can be found in a couple of different cab styles, the two most common being a regular two-door and an extended version that has a small backseat in the rear. There are a number of different options offerings in both the two wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions.
The most well-known four-wheel drive package is called theZ71, and it really brings a lot of good things to the table for not a lot of money. Since its debut in 2004, the Chevy Colorado has been a good selling vehicle, part of which is attributed to its attractive styling and a versatile nature of the engines being offered, especially that in-line five cylinder which acts as a bridge between the smaller for and the large V-8 engine.
As Chevy likes to do, it made sure that the 2004 Chevy Colorado came in a couple of different packages, most of which revolve around the well-known LS and LT options offerings. For those who like a lot of equipment, look for the LT2. Chevy really made sure that the world knew how serious it was about taking a strong stance in midsize pickup trucks with this new Colorado.
The 2004 Chevy Colorado did well in picking up the midsize pickup truck duties from the old Chevy S10. Its appearance on the scene back then gave notice that Chevy was serious about having trucks that looked good and use those little gas as possible while also delivering as much performance as possible.
