Chevrolet Colorado V-8


For the 2009, Chevy engineers has prepared a complete character transplant for the Colorado. They put up the power and handling. 2009 Colorado become a pure sport truck, you’ll like it if you don’t really need full-size space. Generaly speaking the ZQ8 Colorado has torque of a full-size truck with a performance bite. One of the most compelling advantages is how well Chevrolet Colorado V-8 points and steers - really amazing! The suspension has got a front stabilizer bar added to the coil sprung independent suspension, which functions to keep the front wheels flat during the really hard cornering. Perhaps most noticeable is the way steering sensitivity has been revised. This system works perfectly. To feel this you have to do the test drive in your nearest dealer.

The brakes are front disc and rear drum. They have more stopping power because of twin-pistons discs and, at least to our estimation, it gives better pedal feel. There is no squish at the top of the pedal, so it has better braking control going into corners without grabbing.

The Engine

The eight-cylinder motor is built using an aluminum block and heads, with two-valves per cylinder, and is rated to produce 300 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 320 pounds-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Redline comes at 6,000 rpm. Transferring the Colorado engine’s torque to the ground is a Hydra-Matic 4L60 electronically controlled four-speed automatic.

The 2009 Chevrolet Colorado prices starts from $23,330, with the 2.9-liter four-cylinder engine, which also includes a quite extensive list of safety equipment and interior features. To purchase the ZQ8 Sport package and 3LT you have to add $3,935 to the price, but included the 5.3-liter V-8 engine, 18-inch wheels, all-season tires and a number of other amenities. Leather seats, heated, with power adjusters added another $1,495, and a power sunroof goes for $695, finally the rear locker and destination charge, the sticker price moved up to $30,475. I think this car is worth that price.
