They both end with -ado, they are both pickups, and they both have newer models for 2019. With both the Silverado and Colorado on the lot, deciding which of the new Chevy trucks in Richmond to buy can be a difficult choice. Both vehicles are excellent but have unique elements that make them stand out from one another. Here is a break down to help buyers decide on which to choose.


The Silverado has always been known for its power, and this continues to hold true in its newest iteration. This truck can use up to 480 horsepower, making it able to carry and tow some of the largest loads with ease. Although it does not quite match up in terms of horsepower, the Colorado features some great towing abilities, able to tow up to 7,700 pounds.

Fuel Efficiency

The Colorado is the most fuel efficient pickup on the market, clocking in at 30 mpg on the highway. This makes it a great truck for longer tows and hauls as well as for work that requires more travel. The Silverado, on the other hand, sacrifices some of its fuel efficiency for its sheer power, clocking in between 15 and 20 mpg on the highway.


While both of these new Chevrolet models have fantastic safety features, the Silverado can have some of the newest and best active safety technology features added on, making the vehicle both smarter and safer.


Although both cars feature comfortable, spacious interiors, nowadays, comfort also comes through ease, accessibility, and technology. The Colorado features a built in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, giving the driver a variety of benefits. Whether it be the ease of making calls, the ability to stream Netflix on a phone during lunch break, or stream a Spotify playlist or a favorite podcast to make a road trip more enjoyable, there are many ways to provide comfort.


Both of these trucks stand out from the crowd as well as from the standard truck model. With a classic base look, accented with a variety of modern, futuristic accents and touches, both vehicles go beyond functionality with sleekness and style. Who knew that a hardworking pickup could turn so many heads?


Both trucks are quite affordable, especially considering the many features and quality parts they come with. The Colorado is just somewhat cheaper than the Silverado at its starting price, $21,300 compared to $28,300. In the end, all that really matters is the buyer’s personal preference and lifestyle, as each new Chevrolet is as unique as its owner.
