2020 Chevrolet Colorado Exterior and Dimensions

Chevrolet Colorado Exterior Design Rating

2020 Colorado Exterior

The Colorado features a simple but clean design, with a large grille housing the trademark Chevy bowtie. Base models feature black mirror caps and door handles, and ride on 17-inch steel wheels, while elsewhere in the range, body-colored exterior trims are available, along with alloy wheels available in 17-, 18-, and 20-inch styles. Most of the range makes use of the smaller of these wheel sizes, with the larger designs reserved for the numerous special appearance packages that are available. The Redline Edition, for example, features a predominantly black design with red accents, and its wheels mirror that look.
