If we consider the fact that the current generation of the popular mid-size truck has been around since 2012, as well as the fact that the competition in the segment is getting much stronger these days, updates seem natural in the case of Chevy Colorado. While some expected a complete overhaul, it looks like we will have to wait for a little bit more time to see it. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will rather receive just an update. We are about to see some styling changes, but it won’t be a surprise if we see changes in other aspects as well.
- Great towing capacity
- Smooth ride
- Powerful engines
- User-friendly infotainment system
- Tight second row
- Low-grade interior materials
The most prominent changes that are about to come are those in terms of the styling. The current model doesn’t look particularly attractive, especially when compared with newcomers like Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator. Therefore, there’s no doubt it’s time for a facelift. We count on novelties at the front, in the areas like grille, bumpers and maybe even some tweaks to headlights.
The rear end could come with some novelties as well. Of course, novelties in terms of colors, wheels and similar things are expected as well. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the truck is expected to remain pretty much the same.
The current model isn’t particularly attractive from the inside. It features a rather simple, typical truck cabin design and that’s another thing that could change in the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. Of course, we don’t expect miracles, but some interesting novelties in terms of tech features, new materials and similar things would be nice.
On the other side, the overall layout will remain the same, so you may count on familiar body styles, interior dimensions, bed lengths etc. Of course, more standard equipment, especially in terms of tech goodies are always more than welcome.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado Engines
This aspect definitely won’t bring any particular change. Base models will carry on with a familiar 2.5-liter engine with around 200 horsepower, which seems like a perfect choice for fleet vehicles. On the other side, most drivers would probably prefer a more powerful 3.6-liter V6, which is good for about 308 horsepower.
Finally, there is a well-known 2.8-liter turbodiesel, which ensures class-leading towing capacity, which goes up to 7.700 pounds. This engine is good for 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date and Price
This update will probably mean a little bit earlier release date. Some reports suggest that it could be the third quarter of 2020. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes, so base models should go around 22.000 dollars.
