Top Choices for a New Truck for Lafayette, IN Drivers

When it comes to living around Demotte and Lafayette, IN, picking out the right truck for your needs is key. Some notable options for trucks this year include the Chevy Colorado, Chevy Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500. Here are a few important factors to consider when which one you’d want to drive home in.

Size

Size is a major difference between these trucks. While the Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 are full-size pickups, the Chevy Colorado is only a midsize truck. This doesn’t make any of the models better than another, but you will need to keep your shipping and aesthetic needs in mind. If maneuverable trucks with plenty of space are your preference, then the Chevy Colorado is for you. If you’d prefer a truck with even more space in the rear, then the Chevy Silverado 1500 or the GMC Sierra 1500 may be better options.

Mileage and Performance

Overall, the Chevy Colorado doesn’t have as much power but it has a better overall fuel economy compared to the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500. Its gas-powered 3.6-liter V6 engine offers 308 horsepower and its 2.5-liter I4 engine offers 200 horsepower.

The GMC Sierra 1500 has a turbo-diesel 3.0L I6 engine, which offers strong power and performance. The Chevy Silverado has three different powertrain options: the 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, the 255-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 engine and the 285-horsepower 4.3-liter V6 engine.
