2. Chevrolet Colorado
If the small trucks market were Olympic Games, Chevrolet Colorado would win numerous gold medals. But in the world of vehicles, it has won U.S. News & World Report’s Best Compact Pickup Truck for the Money award in the last three years. The combination of towing capacity and fuel economy is unparalleled by any other model thanks to its new four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. The interior has that luxury feel to it and offers more than enough space.
The seats are comfortable and ideal for long-distance trips. But, what makes it as tempting as it gets is its price. It offers a lot for a price that is bettered only by Frontier. With its modern infotainment system and numerous safety and utility features the $20,000 that you need to pay for entry-level Colorado is close to nothing.
