Taking a look at the 2004 Chevy Colorado will serve to remind one that he had an ancestor named the Chevy S10. And though it’s true that a bit of that midsize pickup’s DNA has gone into the Colorado, a side-by-side look at the two trucks would reveal almost no similarities. Making its debut in 2004, the truck is a result of a joint design operation between the company’s Brazil and United States studios.nnFor the most part, the Shreveport Louisiana plant churns out Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickups for the US market. Offering both an automatic transmission (four-speed) and a manual transmission in the five-speed variety, one can count on mating these transmissions to a number of different size engine packages.nnGeneral Motors in the new millennium — along with Chevrolet — has realized that even a pickup truck owner might be concerned about fuel economy, and that’s why the company offers an in-line four-cylinder engine and a in-line five cylinder engine in varying sizes with the smallest one being a 2. 8 L powerplant. Additionally, power is transferred through those transmissions to either two wheels or four wheels.nn2004 Chevy Colorado trucks also come in a number of cab styles, with a regular cab being the standard equipment offered an extended cab version, which has a small backseat also being offered by Chevrolet. As General Motors likes to do, there are several different option packages in both two wheel and four-wheel drive offered for the benefit of its consumers.nnThe 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.nnAs with all Chevy trucks, the 2004 Chevy Colorado comes in a couple of different flavors, including the well-known LS and LT packages, with the LT2 being the one that’s most recognized as having all the bells and whistles. Chevy, with the introduction of this midsize pickup, has made a statement of seriousness that many a fan of Chevy trucks has been waiting for it to display.nnThe 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.
