Ready to get started? Our guide to the 2023 Chevy Colorado gas mileage covers everything you need to know.



Chevy Colorado MPG by Drivetrain

There are a total of five Chevy Colorado trim levels, and three different engine options are spread out across the lineup. Almost all trims are available with either 2WD or 4WD; the ZR2, which always comes standard with 4WD, is the only exception. We should also note that all Colorado trims feature a 21.4-gallon fuel tank and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Your choice of engine and drivetrain will determine your fuel economy on the roads of Valrico and Brandon. Here’s a full list of your options:

  • Colorado with Base 2.7L Turbo-4 & 2WD: Up to 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway
  • Colorado with Base 2.7L Turbo-4 & 4WD: Up to 19 mpg city and 23 mpg highway
  • Colorado with 2.7L Turbo-4 Plus & 2WD: Up to 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway

No matter which configuration you choose, you’ll benefit from the inclusion of features like Auto Stop/Start, which reduces your fuel consumption when you’re sitting in traffic.
