2021 Chevrolet Colorado

2021 Chevrolet Colorado Overview

Having been relatively unchanged since it debuted for the 2015 model year, the Chevrolet Colorado has undergone a facelift for 2021 in order to keep it competitive until its completely redesigned successor arrives in a few years’ time. What’s new for 2021? The WT, LT, and Z71 trim levels have received updated center bars, lower fascias and front skid plates. The ZR2 off-road performance variant, pictured here, also receives front-end styling updates. Notice its new front fascia featuring “Chevrolet” lettering instead of the familiar bowtie logo, and more aggressive looks overall. Chevy also claims it improved the mid-size pickup truck’s visibility. The ZR2 also comes equipped with red tow hooks, Multimatic position-sensitive dampers, front and rear electronic locking differentials, two-inch suspension lift, a 3.5-inch wider track, off-road protection, and multiple skid plates.

Technical details have yet to be released, but presumably engine options will carry over from the 2020 model. Expect the 2021 Colorado to be offered with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, or an optional 3.6-liter V6 producing 308 hp and 275 lb-ft. There’s also the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel four-cylinder, rated at 181 hp and 369 lb-ft. Sales are expected to get underway later this year and pricing will be announced in the near future.
