Excellent working characteristics, great towing capacity, wide range of engines and similar things are undoubtedly strong points of this truck. However, many customers actually care more about those non-truckish things when choosing a truck. Therefore, it seems pretty logical to hear that the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado will come with changes. Although being available in North America since 2014, Colorado actually dates from two years earlier, because the Australian model came 2012. So, you can easily make a conclusion that a couple of aesthetical updates would be nice. So, the company prepares a major update for the next year.
- Wide palette of efficient engines
- Great working characteristics
- Lots of variants in the offer
- Lots of plastics on the inside
- Capable competitors
The current generation of this capable mid-size truck probably won’t stay in production for too long. Still, a couple of upgrades will definite keep the truck competitive, until the new generation arrives. Therefore, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is about to come with a major update. According to the latest reports, the new model will come mostly with changes in styling. We expect a new model to follow design cues from the ZR2 AEV concept, though with some modifications. On the other side, mechanical aspect of the truck shouldn’t be changed too much.
You definitely won’t find hi-quality materials inside the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado. This is a working machine, so hard plastics is a pretty common thing. Still, it looks pretty nice and also offers very good sound isolation. When it comes to seating capacity, it goes from 2 to 6, depend on the cab style you choose. Various reports suggest addition of few new trim levels, but we are pretty sure that the core is about to remain the same. In terms of tech features, a 4.2-liter will probably remain in lower trims, which also include Bluetooth, USB port and similar connectivity features. Of course, there is much more to come in higher trim levels, including things like 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, Bose audio system, satellite radio and much more.
This compartment could also undergo some changes, despite the fact we haven’t heard anything official so far. It looks like the base 2.5-liter gasoline unit could come with some revisions. Currently, it delivers around 200 horsepower. A higher-grade, 3.6-V6 will probably continue in the same way, delivering 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. Finally, there is a familiar 2.8-liter Duramax diesel unit, which is good for about 180 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date and Price
A major update is a clear indicator of an earlier arrival, though we can’t say for sure in which part of the next year 2022 Chevrolet Colorado will come. Most likely, it will be the next fall. The current model’s price goes in a wide range, between $20,000 and $41,000, roughly.
