The Colorado/Canyon offer both manual and automatic transmissions. GM also offers either a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive drivetrain with standard, extended, and four-door crew cab body styles. Most models come with the 2.8#160;L (171#160;cu#160;in) LK5 I4 engine as standard, but a more powerful 3.5 I5 comes with the Z71 package on four-door versions and is optional on all others. The 4-door Z71s also get the 4-speed automatic transmission standard.

This package was later dropped in favor of LT2 and LT3.

A ZQ8 edition is available with a lower and more road-tuned sport suspension than the standard Z85 and comes with 17#160;inch wheels, color-matched bumper and grille, and low profile fender flares.

There is also a Xtreme edition of the ZQ8 which has a different front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts, fender flares, grille, headlights, and 18#160;inch wheels. The Xtreme edition is basically a continuation of a trim package from its predecessor, the Chevrolet S-10 .

For 2007, Colorado/Canyon was facelifted and offered new engines, which include the 2.9#160;L (177#160;cu#160;in) LLV I4 and 3.7#160;L (226#160;cu#160;in) LLR I5 which were both introduced due to numerous head problems, new colors#160;— Deep Ruby (Sonoma Red for the Canyon), Pace Blue (Sport Blue for the Canyon) and Imperial Blue (Midnight Blue for the Canyon), and new tires and wheels. Minor changes to the grille and interior for the LT and LTZ models; the LS models kept the same pre-facelift look, similar to the facelift of the TrailBlazer in 2005 2006.

In addition, the Colorado Canyon badges were phased out from the doors in favour of GM’s corporate logo. For model year 2009, the Colorado was facelifted again and a 5.3#160;L (323#160;cu#160;in) LH8 V8 is offered, producing 300#160;hp (224#160;kW) and 320#160;lb·ft (434#160;N·m). For the 2010 model year, the GM badges were phased out from those trucks, [ 2 ] although fewer 2010 models had the GM logo on the doors.

Colorado/Canyon U.S. sales peaked in 2005 at 163,204 units, surpassing the perennial segment leader, the Ford Ranger. by almost 35% and just 3.3% behind the new best-seller, the Toyota Tacoma. In 2006, however, while still leading the Ford pickup by 27.5%, Colorado/Canyon’s sales lagged their Toyota competitor’s by almost 34%. One 2005 Canyon owned by successful U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown became famous as it was widely featured in his TV advertisements. [ 3 ]
