2012 Chevrolet Colorado

Rating applies to 2004-12 models

Tested vehicle: 2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT Crew Cab 2wd

The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were introduced in the 2004 model year as replacements for the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma. The Isuzu i-series pickup was introduced in the 2006 model year and discontinued after the 2008 model year.

During the crash, intrusion by the tire and wheel into the driver footwell area combined with separation of the footwell from the rocker panel and door sill caused the dummy’s left foot to be trapped underneath the brake pedal. The pedal had to be cut off to free the foot. This entrapment resulted in a structure rating downgrade from acceptable to marginal.

Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.

The dummy’s position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test, together with the footwell intrusion, indicate that the driver’s survival space wasn’t maintained well.

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy’s head hit only the head restraint, as indicated by smeared greasepaint.

Intrusion by the tire into the footwell area caused separation of the floor, which trapped the dummy’s left foot under the brake pedal.

Tested vehicle: 2010 Chevrolet Colorado LT Crew Cab 2wd with standard front and rear head curtain airbags

The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon were introduced in the 2004 model year as replacements for the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma. Side airbags became standard beginning with 2010 models (they had been optional in 2004-09 models). Structure ratings are based on this test and on an earlier test of a 2008 Colorado model without side airbags.

These side impact crash test ratings also apply to the Isuzu i-series pickup, which was introduced in the 2006 model year, because crew cab models had standard side airbags. The i-series was discontinued after the 2008 model year.

2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Crew Cab V-6

It is impossible to discuss the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 without mentioning the three-ton predator in the off-road marketplace, the Ford F-150 Raptor. Yet Chevy has done well in imbuing its more modest, mid-size pickup with arguably even broader talents than Ford’s wondertruck, including respectable prowess across open ground that doesn’t impede its technical acuity on the trails. We’ve already verified the ZR2’s back-country moxie when fitted with its optional 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. Being generally averse to spending more dollars on fewer cylinders, we had to know how the ZR2 with its standard gasoline V-6 fared under a mud-caked microscope.

Un-Torque My Wagon

Along with the diesel’s $3500 upcharge, the main difference between the two is their power delivery. Despite the 3.6-liter V-6’s 308 horsepower at 6800 rpm, it produces only 275 lb-ft of torque at a lofty 4000 revs. In contrast, the 2.8-liter turbo-diesel musters just 186 horses yet churns out 369 lb-ft barely off idle at 2000 rpm. In off-road terms, that means the low-revving diesel excels at crawling through the woods like a tank, whereas the V-6’s stronger powerband makes it more effective at building higher speeds off-road. The gas engine also is notably quieter at idle and at full throttle, although both engines produce about the same amount of noise at 70 mph.

The ZR2’s standard eight-speed automatic (the diesel gets a six-speed auto) is a smooth operator both on and off the road, even though it hastily upshifts to top gear, making the more high-strung V-6 feel sluggish in normal driving. While the 3.6-liter takes some prodding to wake up and doesn’t sound as sweet as it does in General Motors’ passenger cars—an active exhaust like the Chevrolet Camaro’s would have been a nice touch—there’s no masking the gas engine’s substantial corral of ponies.

With its additional 122 horses and 226-pound weight advantage, the V-6 ZR2 bettered the diesel version’s 9.1-second zero-to-60-mph run by a full two seconds and trounced its quarter-mile time with a 15.6-second pass at 90 mph. Thanks to the same gnarly off-road tires that are quick to surrender on tarmac, the 4749-pound V-6 truck fared about the same as the compression-ignition model in lateral acceleration (a dismal 0.69 g), but the V-6 Colorado needed 11 more feet to stop from 70 mph, taking 199 feet. Our V-6 rig also averaged a V-8–like 15 mpg during its two weeks with us, which is 2 mpg less than its EPA combined rating and only 1 mpg better than what our 450-hp long-term Raptor is returning. The six-cylinder achieved 19 mpg on our 200-mile highway test, 1 mpg above its EPA rating.

The Ruffian in Your Pickup

No matter the engine, this is the same butch Chevy pickup that sports wider, tougher bodywork to accommodate 31-inch-tall tires and a 3.5-inch-wider track versus lesser Colorados. Its underpinnings are fortified with about two inches of lift, hefty skid plates, and greater suspension travel: 8.6 inches in front and 10.0 at the rear. Revised springs and Multimatic’s innovative spool-valve dampers bolt to a reinforced chassis, while electronic locking front and rear differentials turn 3.42:1 gears and 17-inch aluminum wheels wrapped with knobby 265/65R-17 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. As effective as they are at guarding the ZR2’s body when grinding over obstacles, the protective rock rails protruding from beneath the doors are even better at dirtying occupants’ pant legs while they’re getting in and out of the truck.

Although the 212.4-inch-long crew cab often feels—and nearly is—as large as a full-size pickup, the ZR2 can navigate narrow, wooded trails that would entangle a Raptor like a trawling net. This was especially helpful at our local off-road park, where the Colorado’s suspension articulation and individually selectable locking differentials—“lockers,” in the 4×4 community—lent it impressive traction and maneuverability on paths usually reserved for Jeeps. While it never will be as composed as the extra-wide F-150 on steep ground or at high speeds, the ZR2’s suspension maintains a firm grip on body motions and is backed up by relatively precise steering feel. Regardless of the terrain, activating the ZR2’s off-road driving mode via the transfer-case knob relaxes the engine’s throttle response, forces the transmission to hold on to gears longer, and tailors the ABS and stability-control systems to maximum effect.

With its compromising off-road rubber and price premium—$5845 to $6930 over a Colorado Z71 4×4, depending on the body configuration—the ZR2 resonates loudest with committed off-roaders. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the truck’s full-size spare tire and wheel, which, in its stock configuration, hangs below the back of the truck like a full diaper and is easily damaged by obstacles underneath. The alternative is our test truck’s Baja-inspired tubular bed mount, which for $615 negates almost all the usefulness of the Colorado’s cargo area. Neither option is ideal, but at least the bed mount is easy enough to remove with a few bolts; we did it no fewer than three times when our drivers needed the ZR2 to function as a pickup.

Capability Costs

The ZR2’s cabin is rather basic and dotted with the same chintzy plastics that handicapped the Colorado in its last comparison test with the Honda Ridgeline. At the top of the Colorado’s hierarchy, it’s relatively well outfitted, with a trailer-brake controller, heated leather front seats (the rear bench is vinyl), automatic climate control, wireless device charging, multiple USB outlets, and 4G Wi-Fi connectivity. Our example added $495 navigation to the standard 8.0-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system, which required another $500 to upgrade to the premium Bose audio system.

The smaller, extended-cab ZR2 starts at a sizable $40,995, with the more practical crew cab tacking on $1625. The ZR2 is not an ideal daily driver, but at an as-tested $44,230, our example essentially splits the base-price difference between two of the best production off-roaders, the $38K Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon and the $50K Ford Raptor SuperCab. With the beefy Colorado’s wide-ranging skill set, its optimal engine is largely dependent on what you plan to do with it.

Второе поколение

Второе поколение Chevrolet Colorado было представлено в 2011 году на Бангкокском автосалоне [1] , но первые фотографии появились в сети незадолго до его появления. Позже он был ещё раз показан на Франкфуртском автосалоне в 2011 году [2] вместе с новым поколением Chevrolet Malibu. Версия для США была показана в Лос-Анджелесе в 2013 году, она отличается иным дизайном кузова и другой панелью приборов. Автомобиль первым получил дизельный двигатель среди среднеразмерных американских пикапов. GMC Canyon был показан в Детройте в 2014 году.

В 2014 году Colorado будет последней моделью второго поколения. В этом же году на заводе в штате Миссури началось производство американской версии пикапа. От азиатских машин такой Chevrolet Colorado отличается внешним видом, дизайном интерьера и моторами: он оснащается бензиновой «четверкой» 2.5 или двигателем V6 объёмом 3,6 литра.

На базе Colorado второго поколения построен TrailBlazer второго поколения.

2021 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab Safety Features Explained

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab gets all the standard safety features like ABS, airbags, driveline traction control, StabiliTrak stability control, OnStar and Chevrolet connected services, Teen Driver features, and many more too. Along with that, the 2021 Colorado Crew Cab is also built impeccably, and that helps in withstanding the impacts quite well.

A few highlighted safety technologies included as an option are Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keeping Assistance with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, Adaptive Cruise Control, HD Surround Vision, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Parking Assistance. Some of these features have been mentioned in detail below:

Following Distance Indicator: This advanced system comes in handy while moving on busy highways. The system can provide the accurate distance between you and the detected vehicle ahead in seconds. You can make decisions on slowing down the truck based on the distance. The system will also alert if you get too close to the car in front.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: The Lane Keep Assist system helps the driver to keep the truck in the same lane if the system detects any unintentional lane change taking place without proper indication. The Lane Departure Warning system is also on board and will warn the driver of the lane change without proper indication by providing audible and visual alerts. If the system senses no driver inputs, the LKA will also assist the steering to get back into the original lane.

Front Pedestrian Braking: The system comes in handy while driving between the hustle and bustle of city roads. At speeds below 50 MPH, the system can reduce or avoid a possible front collision by automatically applying brakes. It works with the help of an array of sensors and a camera that is placed in the front of the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab.

Adaptive Cruise Control: This sophisticated system can automatically maintain the driver-selected gap from the detected vehicle in the front. The feature comes in handy while driving on highways and reduces your need to frequently brake and accelerate, as the system will automatically do that for you based on the speed of the vehicle in front of you. If the vehicle in front of you comes to a complete halt, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab also comes to a stop.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: RCTA helps the 2021 Colorado Crew Cab to detect any rear cross-traffic like cyclists, pedestrians, animals, etc while in a reverse maneuver. If you fail to brake on time even after providing the warnings, this feature would apply the brakes for you to avoid a collision.

GAZ Volga Siber

Передняя стойка GAZ Volga Siber уехала на 10,5 см. Подушки и ремни безопасности сработали безукоризненно.

Датчики на манекене на водительском сиденье определили превышение допустимой нагрузки на ребра и критическую нагрузку на правую ногу.

Колени и бедра находятся под угрозой со стороны замка зажигания, фиксатора рулевой колонки и осколков передней панели. Манекен на переднем пассажирском сиденье отделался легким ударом коленями о бардачок.


Общая идея фронтальных краш-тестов одинакова: взять автомобиль, разогнать и приложить на заданной скорости. о бетонный куб. Разница — в деталях. При ударных испытаниях по «европейской методике» (её теперь используют не только европейцы, но и корейцы, китайцы, японцы, австралийцы, латиноамериканцы, а также американский институт IIHS) применяется деформируемый барьер, имитирующий переднюю часть встречного автомобиля, в который испытуемая машина врезается 40-процентами передка. В этом случае силовая клетка кузова подвергается максимальным нагрузкам, поскольку энергию удара поглощает только один лонжерон.

С этих позиций «классический удар» со 100-процентным перекрытием (им, параллельно евронкаповскому, продолжают оперировать поборники безопасности из Китая, Кореи, Японии, а штатовское агентство NHTSA вообще считает основным) может показаться более гуманным — энергию принимает весь передок. Но! Такой тест — весьма серьёзное испытание для удерживающих систем, так как перегрузки заметно выше. Чуть менее чётко сработает связка «подушка-ремень», как водитель и пассажир неминуемо ударятся головами: водитель — о рулевое колесо, а пассажир — о переднюю панель.

К удерживающим устройствам повышенные требования предъявляет и самый жёсткий из фронтальных краш-тестов — с 25-процентным перекрытием — придуманный американским Институтом страхования и дорожной безопасности. Во время таких «аварий» эксперты ругали «отличников» EuroNCAP за чрезмерную вытяжку ремней: они, оберегая рёбра пассажиров, допускали слишком большое перемещение тела, что грозило травмами головы. Причём куда она врежется — предсказать трудно, так как большой разворачивающий момент заставляет манекены (читай — пассажиров) перемещаться вокруг вертикальной оси.

Но гораздо опаснее, что при «касательной аварии» собственно удар зачастую проходит мимо энергопоглощающих элементов (в первую очередь, лонжерона)! Удар, таким образом, принимает колесо, которое вминает силовую клетку салона, сокращая жизненное пространство пассажиров. Американцы считают такую аварию одной из самых страшных: для пассажиров автомобилей, обладающих 5-звёздочным рейтингом безопасности, каждое четвёртое подобное столкновение заканчивается смертельными травмами. Кстати, «Авто Mail.Ru» удалось вживую увидеть, как проходит краш-тест по данной методике.

Боковых краш-тестов также существует несколько видов. Самый распространённый — так называемый «европейский удар» (им не пользуется только Latin NCAP): в среднюю стойку машины строго перпендикулярно на скорости 50 км/ч «приезжает» 950-килограммовая тележка со сминаемым «бампером». У американской NHTSA тележка намного больше — целых 1367 кг, а удар происходит под углом 63º при скорости 62 км/ч. Ещё существует так называемый «европейский столбовой удар»: машину крепят на тележке и на скорости 29 км/ч боком бьют. правильно, в столб.

А дальше начинается самое интересное. И непонятное. Машина преодолела несколько краш-тестов: можно ли считать её безопасной? Нет, так как если методики оценки вероятности травм прописаны предельно чётко и имеют немало общего, то итоговая оценка — тот самый «звёздный» рейтинг — подсчитывается произвольным образом. В зачёт, например, может пойти наличие системы стабилизации, ассистента при перестроениях. Для каждой методики авторы создают свои собственные способы подведения итогов. Поэтому, например, 5 звёзд EuroNCAP и 5 звёзд C-NCAP — это абсолютно разные вещи!

Что такое «лосиный тест»

«Лосиный тест» (на англ. «moose test») — серия экстремальных маневров, с помощью которых проверяется поведение автомобиля в случае внезапного появления препятствия на пути следования. Водителю нужно сделать двойную смену полосы движения (также это называют «двойная перекладка») по заданной траектории, ограниченной конусами. Данный тест одновременно демонстрирует устойчивость, маневренность и работу систем стабилизации автомобиля.

Стандартизированный трек для прохождения «лосиного теста»

Считается, что подобные тесты изобрели в Швеции, где остро стоит проблема дорожно-транспортных происшествий с участием диких животных. Так, по данным Национального совета по охране дикой природы Швеции, в 2019-ом году в стране произошло более 47 тысяч ДТП с оленями, более 5 тысяч с лосями, более 3 тысяч с ланью и более 7 тысяч с дикими кабанами. Печальная статистика повторяется из года в год.

Шведская марка Saab даже проводила специальные испытания на столкновение с чучелом лося, как итог — у всех автомобилей этого бренда стоит упрочненное лобовое стекло. Оно должно не дать туше лося попасть в салон после столкновения.

Блейзер ( Chevrolet Blazer)

Chevrolet Blazer был предшественником модели TrailBlazer и по своим основным характеристикам не сильно отличался от него. За всю историю существования компании Шевроле сразу несколько машин разных моделей примеряли на себя имя «Блейзер». В 2018 году под этим названием вышел среднеразмерный кроссовер с несущим кузовом и поперечно расположенным мотором.

Сегодня эта модель пользуется популярность у тех, кто ценит в машине не только ее техническое наполнение, но и яркий, дерзкий дизайн. Функциональность и практичность автомобиля на высоте, поэтому к этой модели начинает присматриваться все больше покупателей.

Blazer стал первой моделью Chevrolet со штатным органайзером в багажнике - двигая его по рельсам, можно делить отсек на две части. Максимальный объем багажника со сложенным задним рядом — 1818 литров.

  • Объем силового агрегата — от 2,5 л до 4,3 л.
  • Мощность- 193-194 л.с.
  • Привод — полный.
  • Разгон (0-100км/сек) — 10.1 с.
  • Система питания двигателя — распределенный впрыск (многоточечный).
  • Тип передней подвески — независимая, торсионная.
  • Тип задней подвески — зависимая, рессорная.

Цена нового автомобиля в автосалоне стартует от 1 300 тыс. рублей.
