After a slightly longer stagnation, mid-size pickup truck segment is on fire once again. This segment now has so much to offer thanks to numerous established and astonishing models. The 2021 Chevy Colorado is one of the pickups that will draw huge attention in the near future.
Chevrolet will provide further updates for its Colorado pickup. Plenty of refreshments will make Colorado even better and more competitive. However, don’t expect significant changes or a complete redesign. No, Colorado will get its mid-cycle improvements. That includes small visual updates and numerous minor interior changes. Under the hood, we could expect a new turbo-four powertrain.
2021 Chevy Colorado Changes
The exterior updates are about to happen. We can count on numerous visual novelties for the next model. The upcoming 2021 Chevy Colorado will continue to ride on the same platform. Whatsoever, current-generation Colorado is now present for almost nine years. The complete redesign will surely happen in the near future. But for now, the 2021 Colorado will get some visual updates only.
The front fascia will get larger grille and possibly refreshed headlights. Now, the face looks closer to the Silverado’s front fascia. At the back, Chevrolet also won’t introduce any important changes. We can count on small refreshments such as the bolder rear bumper. On top of that, Chevrolet will surely offer new exterior colors.
Current Colorado offers a very comfortable and quiet cabin. For 2021, we can expect small improvements in comfort, but nothing significant. The 2021 Chevy Colorado will get a more driver-oriented cabin and a revised dashboard. New interior color schemes are unlikely. On the other hand, the tech will be updated.
That includes the updates of the displays, infotainment and some other systems. Beside that, we don’t expect additional changes. Colorado will once again offer a sunroof, push-button start, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Thanks to its numerous cab styles and trim levels, Colorado will remain practical and easy-to-customize model.
2021 Chevy Colorado Powertrain
One of the biggest changes could be a new powertrain option. According to numerous reports, the 2021 Chevy Colorado will get a new 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine. This unit comes with a turbocharger and it generates 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. However, this speculation is yet to be confirmed. On the other side, Colorado will keep its current lineup of efficient drivetrains.
A 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard and it produces 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. Optional 3.6-liter V6 delivers 308 horses and 275 lb-ft of twist. Finally, Colorado is offering a diesel option too.
A 2.8-liter Duramax is available as well and it cranks out 180 HP and 370 lb-ft of torque. Another huge improvement could be a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This gearbox should be optional on the base model or standard on upper trim levels.
Price and Release Date
Considering the number of upgrades, Chevrolet will surely slightly raise the price of its mid-size pickup.
The 2021 Chevy Colorado will be available for around $22,500. The price is still affordable. After all, Colorado is a very comfortable and practical pickup that delivers great performances.
