The 2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel is expected to come with various changes. The popular truck has been around for five years and latest reports suggest a mid-cycle update for the next year. This will include various changes, such as visual improvement, new standard equipment, and various other things. Among all these novelties, one of the most important will be a familiar diesel engine, which will be available across the whole lineup from now on.
Like other versions, this one will also get numerous novelties. Expect to see the revised exterior and interior designs, as well as numerous changes when it comes to standard equipment, although trim level organization should remain the same.
On the other side, a diesel engine will become available across the whole range, but we don’t expect some output changes. The 2019 Colorado Diesel should come in the last quarter of the year.
2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel design and changes
The 2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel will come with several changes. It should be a classic mid-cycle refresh, which usually focuses on visual improvement, although mechanical changes are common as well. In this case, we will most likely see only visual changes, which will be pretty numerous. Of course, most of them will come at the front end. We will see a revised front end with changes on parts like front fascia, grille, headlights etc.
The front bumper should also come with changes, with a new shape, bigger air intakes and with a new design of fog lights. Rest of the truck will also suffer, so some tweaks on parts like taillights, tailgate, rear bumper and exhaust system are also possible. Finally, expect things like new wheels design, new exterior colors etc. Another possible, quite interesting addition is a sunroof. On the inside, changes are possible too.
2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel interior design
The interior of the 2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel will also suffer in many ways. We expect to see several revisions inside the truck. Of course, the focus should be on the dashboard, which could come with numerous new details, including a revised instrument cluster.
When it comes to equipment, the base trim level organization will definitely remain the same. The Base trim comes with the most basic list of standard features, while Work Truck adds several interesting pieces of equipment.
A mid-range LT is probably the most common Colorado around. It is a well-balanced version, which offers probably the best value for the money.
A top-range Z71 comes with a full load of equipment and also includes some off-road equipment. Still, if you’re looking for a real off-road version, there is a ZR2 model, which is designed especially for this cause. Each trim will get some new standard features.
2019 Chevy Colorado Diesel engine
The biggest novelty for the next year is that the familiar diesel engine will be available across the whole range of trim levels and versions.
It is a familiar 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine, which delivers around 180 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque.
The Chevy Colorado 2019 with Duramax engine has impressive towing capacity of 7,700 lbs.
Model with this turbo-diesel engine also has great fuel economy estimated at 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Besides this diesel version, the famous truck will continue with familiar gasoline units as well. There are two units of this kind on the U.S. market. Base models come with a 2.5-liter engine with around 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, optional 3.6-liter V6 has been revised recently and delivers much more power than a four-cylinder unit. It is good for about 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Pretty much all engines could come with either manual or automatic transmission.
