The 2021 Chevy Colorado gets a mid-cycle update. With the pressure of a competitive market, Chevrolet feels the push. The mid-cycle updated Colorado will arrive in dealerships next year with a new look.
To take charge of the overhaul, Chevrolet asked its designers to visually differentiate the trim levels by giving each one a specific look. They have done this previously with the Camaro. The automaker gave us a glimpse with the ZR2 model. This model sits taller, has a wider grille split in half by a flow-through insert, and the Bowtie moves by the driver’s side headlight.
All trims and cab configurations will get a Chevrolet stamped tailgate. The automaker stated the WT and LT trims will have gold-colored Bowtie emblems, however the Z71 will get a black badge like the ZR2’s. The ZR2 will remain an off-road-styled truck, loaded with Multimatic shocks, a two-inch suspension lift, electronic locking differentials in both front and rear, cast-iron control arms, two-speed transfer case, and a wider track. With the 2021 redesign, the ZR2 also gets red tow hooks.
No information has been released regarding mechanical specifications, or interior changes. The 2021 Chevy Colorado will go on sale early in 2020, and pricing will be released in the coming months. The Colorado will compete with the Jeep Gladiator, the Ford Ranger, the Toyota Tacoma, and Nissan Frontier. The competition is tough, and Chevy anticipates the update will help drive sales.
