If you are considering a new Chevrolet truck, you have already made an excellent decision. However, the next thing you need to decide is which model you want to buy. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Colorado are both well-equipped, capable trucks. We will compare the differences between the Silverado and Colorado to help you decide.
The Colorado is in the mid-size pickup segment, while the Silverado 1500 is a full-size model. In the Colorado, front seat passengers receive 41.1 inches of headroom and 45 inches of legroom. Compare this to 43 inches of headroom and 44.5 inches of legroom in the Silverado.
If you choose the Colorado, it can tow up to 7,700 pounds when equipped with the available Duramax® 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine. With this engine, the Colorado is also the most fuel-efficient mid-size pickup, achieving an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway*.
With the Silverado, you should be able to tow up to 12,200 pounds with the available 6.2-liter V8 engine. To get the eco-friendliest Silverado, choose the turbocharged 2.7-liter engine. It gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway*.
Since the Colorado is smaller than the Silverado 1500, it costs less. The Colorado has a starting price just over $21,000, while the Silverado starts just above $28,300.
