Overall, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado offers a range of safety features to keep drivers and passengers safe on the road. While not the most advanced in its class, the Colorado is still a solid choice for those looking for a safe and reliable midsize pickup truck.

One of the key safety features of the Colorado is its advanced airbag system, which includes driver and front passenger airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the driver and front passenger, and head-curtain airbags for front and rear outboard seating positions. This provides added protection in the event of a collision. In addition, the Colorado comes standard with a rearview camera, which makes it easier to park and maneuver the truck in tight spaces. The truck also features StabiliTrak electronic stability control, which helps the driver maintain control in slippery road conditions. The Colorado also offers a range of available safety technologies, including Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. These features work together to help prevent accidents and keep drivers and passengers safe on the road.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
