But it could have been a different story.
With the dawn of a new year come more opportunities for automakers to wow us with their new designs and creations. We're quite excited to see what 2021 has in store, but how did Chevrolet's Colorado perform last year? With new variants, three new looks, and an awesome ZR2 model, it's been remarkably popular. Chevrolet is reporting increased sales in the United States, Canada, and South Korea, although numbers did drop off in Mexico in the final quarter of 2020. Those figures all add up to better numbers than those that the Ford Ranger and Jeep's new pickup version of the Wrangler, the Gladiator.
In the US, Chevrolet delivered 27,709 Colorados in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of approximately nine percent over the 25,484 units sold in the same period in 2019. In Canada, 1,964 units were sold in the same period, which is a whopping increase of 44 percent over the 1,361 examples sold in 2019. However, for the complete calendar year, Colorado sales dropped in both countries, with the USA reporting a decrease of 21 percent to 96,238 units and Canada dropping by 18 percent to 6,648 units for 2020. However, things were much better abroad in South Korea.
The Asian country sold just 1,653 units in the fourth quarter of 2020, but that's around a 31 percent increase over the 1,261 units sold over the same period in 2019. For the 2020 calendar year, total sales reached an impressive 5,049 units - an astonishing increase of approximately 300 percent over 2019's total figures. Mexico, on the other hand, saw just 240 units delivered in the final quarter of the year, a drop of around 24 percent. For the 2020 calendar year, sales dropped year-on-year by around 28 percent to 1,129 units. But with a total redesign coming as a 2023 model, the Colorado could soon improve on its second-place finish for the year and close the gap on Toyota's Tacoma.
