So I am comparing and contrasting the colorado and silverado as a next vehicle purchase. We have 2 2500 hd '97 & '11 We plan to get rid of a '00 1500 We are replacing that one with a '09-'12 truck colorado or 1500. We have tons of small push mow lots in city streets of albany and troy that take 15 minutes to mow and we snow blow those clients also. This truck could be used to do estimates being that I would get v6 model of 1500 of 5 cyl colorado. Colorado offers more options than 1500 wt at a price of $2-3k less, but we lose towing and hauling ability, but with the 2500 we have that ability. A lot of the time the '00 just sits, but when we use it we do not tow with it, but we do put 2 yards of mulch in it. The colorado would only fit one, but the 2500 can take up to 5 at a time. That would be the only downfall. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions. This purchase would be a truck my brother would drive around as a company vehicle and would use to go wherever he wants as part of his benefits package so gas mileage helps save money. colorado has 3 mpg better city and highway. I want to know what you all think because you are very opinionated and in the industry to begin with. one more piece of information. my personal vehicle a '10 wrangler is used for estimates a lot of the time. If that matters.
