It’s been almost a decade since Chevrolet unveiled its second-generation Colorado at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Since then, the pickup has acquired a rough aesthetic: soft curves have been replaced by sharp lines and a more muscular design.

Colorado is equipped with a 2-inch platform with eight cargo mounts, two grooves for motorcycle/bicycle tires, and a set of 2×6 and 2×8 storage pockets, which allows them to be stored on several levels. Other features include an accessible 110-volt outlet and a tailgate that stops halfway to make it easier to transport longer items such as plywood sheets or OSB.

“The 2023 model will be offered in a configuration with a double cabin and a short cargo platform. This is disappointing, as the previous model offered an elongated cabin with a long body, as well as crew cabin options with short and long cargo platforms.”

As standard, the pickup comes with an 8-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11.3-inch infotainment system with Google integration available. The interior was decorated with a modern dashboard with round air vents. They are joined by a new center console with a friction hinge that allows the lid to remain open at any angle.

In terms of equipment, the entry-level pickup is quite simple, but it has a remote keyless entry, a six-speaker audio system, and rear storage under the seat. From there come more expensive options, and the Z71 is equipped with seats made of fabric or eco-leather with red contrast stitching. The ZR2 does its best with heated front seats and 8-speed power adjustment on the driver’s side.

Under the hood is a new 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which is used in conjunction with the larger Silverado. Three different versions of the engine will be available, and the entry-level unit develops a power of 237 hp and 351 Nm. The mid-range engine is included as standard with the Trail Boss and Z71 and is also available as an option for the WT and LT. It develops a power of 310 hp and 528 Nm. The Colorado ZR2 version comes with a powerful version of the 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. It develops 310 hp and 582 Nm.
