Trucks are one of the biggest investments in businesses that need to transport goods to faraway places, or tow heavy goods. It isn’t an everyday purchase, even for big businesses. So, when it is time for you to expand your business and it needs to invest in a truck, you need to make a careful choice, keeping in mind how much profitable it will be.
In this article we are sharing our own experience of buying a truck from a renowned Suffolk used truck dealer, who suggested us to buy a used 2018 Chevrolet Colorado, after listening to our requirements. And we would be ever thankful to him for this wise recommendation and we want to share with you the reasons for that.
The Multipurpose Vehicle
Ours was a small business that needed a vehicle that can serve all the purposes at one go. We had a low budget that couldn’t fit the price of a new truck altogether, but frankly speaking we were jittery about investing in a vehicle that can turn into a nightmare, so we couldn’t decide, whether buying used truck will do any good to us.
Why the 2018 Colorado
It is then that the staff of the above said dealership helped us in the difficult process of decision making. He recommended us to buy a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado, that got traded in only after a year of purchase and was in good condition. The interior components were intact, and apart from a few light scratches, we didn’t find any fault with the exterior either.
In other words, the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado as a mid-size pickup truck looked ready for all the multi-purpose tasks we were planning to assign it. With its strong built, it appeared to be a good work hauler, a capable towing machine and even can work as a good relocating tool.
When you take the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado for an off-road destination, you can eventually find out and realize how the automaker has implemented clever engineering tweaks to make it work without a hitch. The lifted suspension in perfect tune with its unique bodywork named as ZR2 smoothly climbed up and down the unpaved surfaces and performed a towing task with ease.
We got to know from the dealership of used trucks near Suffolk , that the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado can be ordered as a Work Truck, LT, and Z71 trim levels, and we chose the Work Truck which we got at a lucrative price.
The 2018 lineup of Chevrolet Colorado allows you to choose from the options of extended and four-door crew cab configurations, depending upon the trim level you choose. There are also three bed lengths and two engine options available in the lineup. The standard one is a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine while the optional is a 3.6-liter V-6 one that makes 308-horsepower when paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The optional 2.8-liter turbodiesel inline-4 was the one we chose for its fuel economy counting 30 mpg on the highway and could tow up to 7,700 pounds.
If all that sounds profitable for your business, even we would recommend you to go for a used Chevrolet Colorado, but only if it does good in your test drive.
