The Chevy Colorado was introduced in 2004 to replace the old S-10 lineup that Chevy offered. It is a mid-size pickup and comes in a variety of different models and sizes, so the Colorado will be split into three separate articles: this one, detailing the Regular Cab variety, as well as the Extended Cab and the Crew Cab varieties. The Colorado Regular Cab comes in two models, the WT and the Z85, and each of those comes in a two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive model. The Regular Cab model of the Colorado is perhaps the easiest for auto shippers to move, and we’ll explain why in just a moment.
Like we said, the Colorado Regular Cab comes in two models, the WT and the Z85. They both feature a Vortec 2.9L Straight-4 engine, but the WT comes with a five-speed manual transmission instead of an automatic (though an automatic option is available as an upgrade). It also features 16-inch steel wheels, color-keyed appearance package and fog lamps. The Z85, on the other hand, does not feature a manual transmission option, though it does feature 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps and a power convenience package. While the differences may seem slight at first, it’s best to see the differences in each up close at your dealership.
The trouble with shipping the Colorado Regular Cab is the fact that it’s bigger than an SUV, yet smaller than a full-size truck. Therefore it’s small enough to fit on most standard auto shipping carriers, which will save you money in the long run – but because it’s larger than an SUV, it’s going to cost a bit more in terms of weight and size, which means oversize vehicle fees on your end. This is standard, and you’ll encounter them regardless of which auto shipping company you happen to choose. It’s one of those things that you can’t avoid, because shippers have to always buy fuel, and the heavier a vehicle is, the more fuel is required to move it – therefore, they need to offset the cost of shipping a larger vehicle by charging more to ship it. It could be worse, however; the Colorado could be a behemoth that can’t even fit on a standard shipper, which would be even more of a hassle, not to mention more expensive.
