2021 Chevrolet Colorado Pickup Truck To Get A Mid-Cycle Refresh

Chevrolet’s second-generation mid-size pickup truck came redesigned about six years ago, so it definitely needs something new to show to the North American public. However, the automaker isn’t going to bring an all-new but just an updated 2021 Colorado, so don’t hold your breath for something revolutionary. The changes will be mostly cosmetic, though there might be a few details which will make the truck essentially better from the current model. Here’s what’s cooking:

Under The Hood

Even though we’re talking about a mid-cycle update only, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will receive some mechanical changes as well. Allegedly, the mid-size pickup truck will get a new option under the hood. More precisely, today’s 2.5-liter unit will make room for the company’s new 2.7-liter engine. There’s no official information regarding the new mill, though we expect notably more power and significantly better efficiency from the new turbocharged gasoline engine that’s currently known as the L3B. In addition to the GM’s new inline4 option, the 2021 Chevy Colorado will come hooked with a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. Consequently, the company could cancel the current six-speed auto gearbox. If so, then today’s 8-speed unit will become standard. Other two engines will be carried over for sure. More precisely, the 3.6-liter V6 gasoline mill will deliver 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, while the 2.8-liter Duramax stays limited to 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of grunt.

Cosmetic Changes, New Trim Level, Updated Infotainment, And Improved MPG Numbers

Exterior changes will be mostly cosmetic. Reportedly, the truck will get revised ends which will mirror the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept. If this turns out to be the truth, then the pickup might have a more attractive grille and headlights. Word on the street says that the automaker could add sunroof as an option. This would be a nice detail, don’t you think? Still, if it really appears, the feature will be available with higher trims only. Speaking of trims, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will definitely get a new topping trim. Unofficially, the carmaker will pick between LTZ and High Country badges.

The manufacturer will most probably update the truck’s cabin. The 2021 Colorado will sport slightly restyled dashboard which will be coupled with a new infotainment display. Chevy won’t forget to improve the current safety suite without any doubt, while the mid-size pickup should improve its efficiency with a push-button start option.


According to our insider, the refreshed Chevy Colorado is going to appear next summer.
