4. 2019 Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm: Engine and Performance

Serious about above and beyond the city scene driving then consider it. Settling for a 2.0-liter, bi-turbo is cool but this comes in a 2.8-liter engine with 500 torque and 200 horsepower that isn’t a small engine! The Duramax engine further proves its power with a tow-limit of 3.5-tonnage and better yet is having 800-millimeter wadding depth too.

Hit low or high enough water to cross safely as long as the alternator is dry! Most of its closest competition will have at least 400-480 torque and 150-190 horsepower which is quite lower though. Performance upgrades are plenty with updates in the engine, transmission, and body mounts for a smoother ride on pavement or off-road.

Getting this smooth ride is done with better damper tech and upgraded ECU software with updated springs that lend better control via electric power steering. Selectable riding modes are available with a drive-by-wire 4X4 system that electronically adapts to any terrain automatically.

From the engine, transmission to other performance systems which make it a very responsive truck! Still features pretty basic suspension and brakes that are equipped but have more than enough premium equipment though.

5. 2019 Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm: Safety Features

One of the drawbacks is the dual airbag with driver knee airbag used when others feature seven in all! Other than this glaring gap in available airbags which is balanced out by other relevant equipment to note. Not to be left out with premium car safety features like the Forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and front and rear sonar for parking assist!

Provided is rear parking cam when backing up for better visibility when parking. Checking tire pressure is a breeze with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System to make sure the tire pressure is normal while driving.
