2018 Colorado Fuel Efficiency
For example, a Crew Cab LT with a four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission offers 24 miles per gallon overall according to Consumer Reports. That’s a product of 15 miles per gallon in the city and an impressive 34 miles per gallon on the highway. With a 21 gallon gas tank, this gives the truck a total cruising range of 495 miles, so you’ll spend less time at the pump and more time on the road, hitting the trails, or at your job site. Consumer Reports estimates that an average driver will put 12,000 miles per year on their truck. With this kind of fuel consumption, you can expect to use 510 gallons of gas in a year, and spend $1,270 at the pump.
Consumer Reports also tested the Crew Cab LT with a V6 engine and the eight speed automatic transmission. The results weren’t quite as efficient as the other option, but still deliver excellent V6 engine efficiency. This setup allowed Consumer Reports to get 26 miles per gallon on the highway and 13 miles per gallon in city traffic for a combined efficiency of 18 miles per gallon. The same 21-gallon tank now gives a cruising range of 385 miles, and those who drive 12,000 miles per year can expect to use 650 gallons of gas in that time. The estimated yearly fuel cost is $1,560.
