I realy dnt know what all you people are saying, i own a 2004 chevy colorado crew cab truck with that so called five cylinder you are all bagging on and i can say that it runs n drives a whole lot better then a six. Plus that truck comes with two hundred plus hp. So that truck is more then capable of whipping the six out of the water. I have owned the truck since it came out n im riding at about 140k and i havent had a problem with it. I take the truck mudding and its my daily driver. So in my opinion anyone bagging on it just doesnt have the money to afford it and should honestly stay quiet
i am loolin' to buy a 2006 and your comments confuse me, you contradict yourself at the end. explain !!

What about the 300hp Chevy Colorado 5.3 V-8?
See that's my gripe with gm. They gave us a 4 cyl, 5 cyl, and the big monster 5.3 v8 for it, and they couldn't give us a 6 cyl???
Give me a break. If they made a v6 for it I would have got one. Until they make a small truck with a good v6 I'm more than happy with my Nissan Frontier's 260 hp v6.

They are even making a new 4.3 v6 for the 2014 Silverado too.

I have a 2006 Colorado. Bought a 10' pop-up camp trailer last summer. Going through the mountains beween Anchorage and Glennallen, I had to watch my speed, even up steep grades. At one point I was going over 70 mph up hill. That little truck surprised me. Lots of torque.

All of you guys that say the Colorado is junk because it has an i5 in it and that it needs a v6 to keep up are idiots you do realize the Colorado is offered with the 5.3l v8 and still gets 20mpg if you don't just dog the hell out of it all the time and gm is also planning on putting the rest of the small pick up out the door with a 4.5l v8 duramax diesel in the Colorado with 300hp and 550 ft lbs of torque and 25-30mpg

2004 GMC Canyon, I5 engine, 4 door, 4WD, 23 MPG on trips. Love it. WORST VEHICLE I EVER HAD. Actually the American car was great, the Japanese engine was a piece of junk. Found out that particular Japanese engine goes through head gaskets like an elephant goes through peanuts.

I cannot believe that even a company as pathetic as GM has CONTINUED to put 5 cylinder engines in that truck. The 4 cylinder engine is underpowered, as it was in the S-10 (this truck is even bigger), and the 5 cylinder just doesn't have enough umph to make it go any better. GM V6s are notoriously unreliable, but at least the vehicle would be able to get out of it's own way as it races to the exit to get to the gas station! They even put this weird little engine in the "small" Hummer!
The 5 cylinder engine is just another example of GM's arrogance, and refusal to do ANYTHING right!

GM's 6 cylinder unreliable that's news to me, I'm not a huge fan of the 6's but I have ran them for well over 180,000 without a problem many times over. One 4.3 over 300 without 1 problem at all and I beat that little motor as hard as I possible could..

I own a 2009 coly 5cly in line with 107,000 on it and STILL runs like a top! Its had it's shares of racing and raw hiding and never skips a beat!! Gas mileage is great and power and pick up is very decent. So idk why everyone says its underpowered. It seems like it has more than enough for me.

I drove a 5 cyl. for my work vehicle. GMC Canyon. SUPER Vehicle. I do pole to pole audits on power lines and that thing was atank. I want to buy one for my personal truck, but I'm seeing alot of "Head Gasket" issues on the internet. Can someone out there give me statistics on good vs bad trucks? In other words, out of all 2012 or 2011 5 cyl. Gmc/Chevy trucks sold, What percentage had head gasket issues?? Please advise
That issue only concerns I believe the 2006 models. But if since it was a recall if you ever have a problem Chevy will fix it free of charge. Or you could always get a newer one. Nothin but good reviews on them and no recalls.

I have a 2004 colorado wit 124000 miles ad still run great. How many more miles can i exspect? I think it's a 5 cynder but not sure. i's a 2.8L
So far the highest ive seen is 288,000 and his was still runnin strong!! It really just depends on maintence. If you change the oil and tranny fluid as recommended there's no tellin how long it'll last you! Mine is an 09 five cly in line with 106,000 daily driver and never had the first problem and I ride her hard! Hope this helps.

If the rpms go up and down try cleaning the throttle body colys do have small problems with that. Just clean out the throttle body then see what she does. Good luck!

I love my 2012 chevy colorado 5 cyl street pak 2. It has plenty of get up and go. I had an 06 z71 5 cyl and this one goes alot faster with the 22 more horse. I have a guy in the morning on the way to work that has an older impala v8 who likes to race. I keep up with him just fine and a ranger v6 dakota are no match. The tacoma is not much faster
