After years of stagnation, the segment of mid-size trucks is becoming very popular once again. Besides, familiar models like Tacoma and Colorado, there are several additions that have already come or will come in the near future. Among them, some of the most important names are Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator. Considering that the Tacoma is also coming with novelties for the next year, it seems logical to see 2021 Chevrolet Colorado refreshed as well. This will be a typical mid-cycle update, so we are about to see a number of interesting novelties.
Of course, visual updates are certain, but we also could on a fine number of interior changes. One of the most important novelties will be a new turbo-four engine. Of course, we also count on additions in terms of standard equipment and similar kinds of novelties.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado Exterior
This will be a typical mid-cycle update, so we count on a big number of novelties in terms of the styling. The current generation has been around for a quite long time, since 2012. Therefore, it’s not hard to make a conclusion that this truck definitely needs some visual updates to remain competitive. Of course, the focus will be on the front end. We believe that the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will get a completely new face.
Count on a new grille, new headlights, and many more novelties. We presume that there will be a lot of similarities with the recently-redesigned Silverado, especially when it comes to the aforementioned parts. The rear end probably won’t come with so many important changes. On the other side, we count on those typical updates, such as new sets of wheels, new color options and similar things.
On the other side, the mechanical aspects should include too many changes. Some smaller revisions on the chassis are possible, but the overall design will definitely remain the same.
The current model’s cabin is quite work-oriented and the company will probably want to add a bit of refinement for this occasion. This could mean small revisions to the dashboard, as well as new color schemes. Of course, we expect to see a lot of updates in terms of tech goodies. Some reports even suggest additions of a sunroof and push-button start. On the other side, the overall cabin design shouldn’t change too much. Also, we are pretty sure that the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will continue with familiar cab designs and bed sizes in the offer.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado Engines
One of the biggest novelties for this update should be a new engine. According to the latest reports, we are about to see a new 2.7-liter turbo-four in the offer. This engine has debuted in the new Silverado and it delivers pretty impressive 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, the current lineup should carry on in the same way. The offer will start with a familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which delivers around 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. Of course, there is also a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which delivers 308 horsepower and 275 horsepower.
Finally, there is a familiar 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel, which delivers around 180 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque.
Also, another big novelty could be a new 10-speed automatic transmission, though we are pretty sure this one will be available in higher trim levels only.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date and Price
Considering that we are about to see a fine amount of changes, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will probably come a little bit earlier than usual. We expect to see it sometime in the third quarter of the next year. On the other side, bigger changes in price are not expected, so base models should go around 22.000 dollars.
