    Default V8 Colorado

    It is not a flex fuel engine and as far as the poor MPG, my only guess would be the low speed rear gears. I traded a 2005 Colorado crew cab 4X4 with the inline 5 for this one and it didn't get that great of gas mileage either.
    Hey GM, how about a hybrid for the 5.3 in the next Colorado?
    We ought to be able to express our wishes since we now own a part of GM, right!!!

    I thought they only offered the flex or the fuel managment motor for the Colorado. Even with the 4.10 I would think it would do better. Oh well I still want one!!

    Default Colorado V8

    Hey Mark, I just took delivery of a 2010 Colorado Z71 LT2 with the 5.3L engine. Sounds like basically the same truck you have, leather, power seats, all the bells and whistles. Awesome truck!!!! I got rid of a 2007 extended cab Silverado Z71 when I got this one, and I like the Colorado much more. Much easier to handle and park and plenty of power..
    I normally trade vehicles every two years or so, but this one may be a keeper, the wife likes it even more than I do.
    I'll try to get some pics up in the next couple of days.\

    Default V8 Colorado

    So there is at least one more. Thanks EASTEX. I was about ready to put mine up on blocks and not drive it.
    You are right about them being easy to drive. The 2005 crew cab Colorado that I traded for this one had a very small turning radius and this one turns about like a car. I know what you mean about trying to keep the wife out of it. She drove a 2005 Avalanche that I bought the same day that I bought the 2005 Colorado (GM Employee Pricing for Everyone in 2005) and she drove the Colorado more than her truck. I had to buy her a 2009 Infinity G37 coupe to keep her out of my truck.
    I'm sure you will like yours as much as I like mine.
    Keep in touch.
