Tim’s Truck Capital is proud to carry a large selection of high-quality, previously owned Chevy Colorado trucks from recent years.

The Chevy Colorado has come in a variety of trim levels for many years, with each trim offering different style elements, tech features, powertrains, and more. Simply choosing a different trim level is a way to customize your truck because it can help you get a range of different options. Adding an options package can give you the extra features that a trim level doesn’t include.
When you are shopping for previously owned trucks, you don’t have the ability to choose the trim level or package yourself. However, you have the perk of finding Colorado trucks that have been fully loaded with the best options and are selling for a fraction of the price of what they sold for new. Here’s what you are poised to find on the Chevy Colorado by trim levels that have been offered in recent years:
The WT has been the base trim level for the Chevy Colorado for many years. It sets the tone for the whole model line-up, providing a great engine and features.
Exact specs will always vary depending on the particular model year. However, the base level Chevy Colorado has typically been offered with at least a 2.5-liter engine in recent years, providing upwards of 200 horsepower. Usually, an optional V6 engine was also offered that was larger and put out far more horsepower, providing the power needed to haul heavy loads and handle uncertain terrain.
Towing capacity reaches up to 7,000 pounds on the base model Colorado in recent years. That’s enough to carry just about any equipment you need to haul for the job or for your weekend excursions.
Different cab options were made available on the base level Chevy Colorado, providing comfortable seating for up to five people. Some of the interior options included comfortable cloth upholstery, rubber mats for all-weather protection, a color touchscreen for the infotainment system, and optional Chevy MyLink for smartphone integration. Safety features included a backup camera, all-season tires, anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, and additional airbags.
With the move up the trim levels to the Chevy Colorado LT, you are getting the same powertrain, but you are gaining a lot of convenience features and extra styling.
Though the drivetrain remains the same on most LT trim levels in recent years, many options were available to upgrade the mechanics. Some available options included an automatic locking rear differential, an engine block heater, a cat back performance exhaust system, an integrated trailer brake controller, and a Two/Haul mode.
Some of the exterior features added on the LT trim have included larger wheels, all-season blackwall tires, and folding side mirrors. Optional equipment at this trim level has typically included an EZ lift and lower tailgate, cargo tie-downs, cargo dividers, and a drop-in bed liner.
Interior upgrades included a larger touchscreen display, a larger driver information center, cruise control, carpeted mats, underseat storage, overhead console, leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, steering wheel-mounted controls, and OnStar 4G LTE.
While the Chevy Colorado is usually strong and sturdy enough to go off-road, the Z71 trim level makes upgrades that are specifically designed to optimize off road performance. The trim level adds an automatic locking rear differential, hill descent control, and an off road suspension package. It also makes available a 4x4 system that gives you more consistent power in any terrain.
Other exterior features on this trim level include halogen-projector headlights, heated sideview mirrors, recovery hooks, and a sliding rear window.
Inside, the seating is upgraded to either cloth or leather, and it gets more points of adjustment. Front seats are heated. Some interior upgrades on this trim level include wireless device charging, automatic climate control, an auto dimming rearview mirror, and a remote start system.
The top trim level for the Chevy Colorado in recent years has been the ZR2. This trim level combines all of the features from the previous trim levels, and it adds a few extras. You get all the off roading features previously offered on the ZR2, as well as features like driver selectable full-locking front and rear differentials, an advanced multimatic damping system, increased suspension, and advanced trailering systems.
A turbocharged diesel engine is also available at this trim level, ensuring you have the most power for taking on trails and other rocky terrain. Four-wheel drive is also standard on this trim level.
Special editions have frequently been made available for this trim level, and they come with exclusive colors and other styling options.
