    The 2019 Chevy Colorado is available with three engine options that never fail to impress. This includes a standard, advanced, and alternative fuel option. The standard engine is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque with a 6-speed auto transmission. This is for drivers who want to stay affordable and efficient. The advanced option is a 3.6L V6 that roars with 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed auto transmission. This is for the drivers to get the full might of the 2019 Colorado with up to 7,700 pounds of towing potential. The alternative fuel option for $3,500 is a 2.8L turbo-diesel 4-cylinder engine that impresses drivers with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This is ideal for anyone who cares the about fuel they use and is much more efficient than traditional gas-powered engines and has the added bonus of 30 MPG on the highway. It should be noted that Frontier does not offer a comparable diesel engine.

    In addition to these engines the 2019 Colorado also can handle some of the roughest roads with the 4WD model, but if you don’t need that much terrain control the 2WD allows for a smoother ride. Basically, this is an extremely versatile and dependable ride.

    2019 Nissan Frontier

    The 2019 Nissan Frontier offers drivers the choice between two engine options. The standard choice that comes with lower trim levels is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. If that is not enough, those that feel the need for more power will want to upgrade to a higher trim level in order to get the 4.0L V6 engine with a hearty 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Frontier comes with either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a 5 or 6-speed manual transmission. A major downfall of this model is that it doesn’t have the most impressive fuel efficiency rating with only 23 MPG on the highway.

    As with most pickups the 2019 Frontier has 4x4 technology for off-road capabilities. With this technology, drivers can seamlessly transition between driving modes and experience everything the world has to offer with few limitations.
