Chevy Colorado Extended Cab 4WD
Chevy Colorado Extended Cab 4WD

The Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2004 to replace the ailing Chevy S-10 lineup of pickups, and it has sold well ever since. It is sold in a variety of different models, drivetrains and cab sizes, so we’ve split them up into several different articles, as each different type of cab can have an impact on your auto shipping price. This article will discuss the Colorado Extended Cab AWD models, of which there are three: the WT, Z85 and Z71.

The WT is the base Extended Cab AWD model and features a Vortec 2.9L Straight-4 engine, a standard five-speed manual transmission, 16-inch steel wheels, fog lamps, and a color-keyed appearance package. The Z85 models features an upgraded version of the same Vortec engine as the WT with a four-speed automatic transmission as opposed to a manual one; it also features 16-inch aluminum wheels, an automatic-locking rear differential, a power convenience package and a unique towing package. The Z71, the most expensive Extended Cab AWD model, features a more-powerful Vortec 3.7L Straight-5 engine, an automatic-locking rear differential, 17-inch chrome-clad wheels, a sliding rear window, a unique Z71 suspension design, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass and temperature display. You can also learn more about these specific models by visiting Chevy’s official website for them here.

The Colorado Extended Cab is larger than the Regular Cab, which means it will be more expensive than the latter, but it is not as expensive as the Crew Cab models, which bring a lot more weight to the table than the Extended Cab. Carriers have to factor in the weight of a vehicle when determining the transport price, as more weight means more fuel consumed, and fuel prices for transporters are at an all-time high. This means that transporting heavier vehicles will be more expensive, but that’s standard across the board and should be expected when finding a good auto transport company.
