The Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2004 as a replacement of the S-10 lineup of pickup trucks that Chevy had offered for quite some time. The Colorado, since its introduction, has continued to be a top-seller for Chevy, and as such now comes in a variety of different packages and models. This article will discuss the Crew Cab 2WD version, which is currently sold in three different models: the Z85, Z71 and Sport. The Colorado also comes in an Extended Cab and a Regular Cab, each with their own separate models; you can read more about the other Colorado models on our other articles.
The Z85 is the base Crew Cab 2WD model and features a 2.9L Straight-4 Vortec engine, 16-inch aluminum wheels, chrome-trimmed interior accents, a power convenience package and a four-speed automatic transmission. The Z71, the next step up from the Z85, features a more powerful 3.7L Straight-5 Vortec engine, an automatic-locking rear differential, 17-inch chrome-clad wheels, a special Z71 suspension package, a sliding rear window, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with built-in compass and temperature display. The Sport, the most expensive of this particular lineup, features the most-powerful 5.3L V8 Vortec engine with an upgraded ZQ8 suspension package and 18-inch wheels clad in Midnight Silver.

The most important thing to note when you’re shipping your Colorado Crew Cab is the overall weight of the vehicle. Now, the Crew Cab is the largest Colorado available, but the truck in itself is still a mid-size pickup, not nearly the behemoth that the Ford F-350 is, and as such shouldn’t require a specialized auto shipping truck – it will most likely fit on the back of a standard carrier, which definitely helps with keeping the price low and the pickup time quick. However, it does have some added weight, and this will affect your price, as auto shippers expend more fuel when shipping heavier vehicles, and therefore must charge the customer for the additional money spent on fuel. Keep this in mind, as it could have a major impact on how much you pay for your transport, but it won’t be exorbitant. It’s always best to talk to your specific auto shipping representative if you’re worried about having to pay extra, or if you’re wondering why you have to pay it.
