Each and every year the automobile market is flooded with choices and options for would-be purchasers. Some are new makes and models, while others are simply a retooling and redesigning of an existing one. Whichever the case may be, the one thing that is constant is the sheer volume of automobiles to choose from.
When the time comes to purchase a new car, most people have at least some idea in mind of what they are looking for. Some individuals are looking for large vehicles for their families or for work, others for fast and sporty, and even more for safety and fuel economy. And while options are abound, a invariable need is shared among all to get the most bang for their buck, which only makes sense considering the hefty price tag that comes along with even the most modest of new cars. However; with all the options available, it can be difficult to determine exactly which car is right for you, and more importantly, which car will allow your hard earned dollars to go the furthest. Thankfully, that difficulty is now in the rear view mirror.
We decided to do all of the legwork on your behalf; talk to the dealers, read the reports and scrutinize the reviews in order to determine which 17 cars offer the most for their price tag in 2017, so that you won’t only choose what new car to buy, but you will also choose a car that will likely last you for years to come.
The category of mid-size pickup trucks (and pickup trucks in general) has always been a heavily debated category, but this year it seems that Chevy has surpassed the competition with it’s 2017 Colorado. How might you ask? Well, that’s simple; when it comes to the Colorado, options for would-be purchasers abound.
This is an impressive win for Chevy with the Colorado only reentering the category two years ago, but it seems that Chevy made use of their time off. In terms of engine, a 2.5-liter four with 191 lb-ft of torque is standard; optional are a 3.6-liter V-6 (275 lb-ft) and a 2.8-liter turbodiesel four (369 lb-ft), which has a tow rating of up to 7600 lb. You can also choose between extended and crew-cab, bed length, rear or all-wheel drive, and six-speed manual or automatic. For the more adventurous type, the Colorado is also offered in a trail-ready ZR2 trim which provides specialty suspension and an off-road kit. All of this with a base price of $20,995 and it is easy to see why the Chevy Colorado provides drivers with more for less.
