Starting Price: $20,120
American brands have basically owned the full-size pickup truck market for years, but imports have done quite well with the compact truck market. Chevrolet is hoping to change that with the introduction of the all-new Colorado. Colorado looks the part of the tough pickup truck and has the specs to back up the good looks. Two engines are available: a fuel-efficient 200-horsepower four cylinder or a 305-horsepower V6. The latter gives the new truck a 7,000-pound towing capacity — currently the best in its class. But Colorado is more than a work truck; it can be equipped with a large color touchscreen display, a rearview camera, heated front seats and 4G LTE connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
