Road Test Review: 2009 Chevrolet Colorado V-8

A lot of street truck enthusiasts know the formula. Take a compact truck, put in a V-8, lower and tighten up the suspension, then re-tune the steering and brakes. If you did all that, you’d end up with something like the 2009 Colorado ZQ8. As an added benefit, you’d have a truck that happens to carry and tow more than any Colorado until now. And it would be a blast to drive.

For 2009, Chevy has done exactly that, engineering a complete character transplant for the Colorado. By upping the ante in power and handling, the 2009 Colorado becomes an engaging sport truck, and potentially, a truck to consider if you like full-size power but don’t really need full-size space
