The redesigned 2023 Chevrolet Colorado has been spied heavily camouflaged for the first time. Many upgrades are noticeable, and it appears that the new pickup has received similar slim headlights like on the Silverado. However, compared to the previous generation, the new Colorado comes with more defined character lines, especially on the front. Reportedly, it will sit on an updated version of the current model’s 31XX platform. So, the dimensions will be slightly larger this time around.
On the other hand, we can expect gasoline and diesel inline-4s, plus a gas V-6. In addition, a hybrid option is also rumored, and it may be offered as well.
Is the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado a Good Truck?
The new 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is proportionally the same as the outgoing truck. The vinyl camo hides much of the bodywork, but we managed to notice some upgrades. First of all, the front fascia seems revised, featuring a more attractive grille and similar slim headlights like on the Silverado. Overall, the Chevrolet Colorado is getting a chiseled redesign that will make it more eye-catching.
The manufacturer also revealed that we could expect a vast number of wheels and tires. We wouldn’t be surprised to see that the new Colorado features the same half-ton look behind as the latest Silverado. As we said, the forthcoming truck will sit on an updated version of the current model’s 31XX platform. It makes sense that Chevy is sticking with the existing platform instead of investing in a new one. Moreover, the platform is very stiff and durable.
On the inside, the forthcoming 2023 Chevrolet Colorado could be more roomy thanks to the updated platform. However, we expect the new model to offers the same familiar interior as its predecessor. That means the seating layout will remain the same, with enough room to fit five passengers. Unlike the other models in the same class, Chevy doesn’t use a ton of premium interior fit-and-finish materials. Instead, buyers can expect a traditional, modern cabin.
The LT is the standard trim that will surely continue to offer the same 8-inch touchscreen with an upgraded Infotainment 3 system and an 8-inch touchscreen display. Besides, expect very supportive seats and a decent passenger room in the second row.
2023 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Specs
From official information, the upcoming 2023 Chevrolet Colorado will most probably use Sierra’s engine. That means we can expect a 2.7-liter inline-four that makes around 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. Besides this engine, the manufacturer will likely introduce the new gasoline and diesel inline-4s, plus a gas V-6.
As we mentioned, a hybrid option is also rumored, and it may be offered to the new generation. Overall, expect this model to be the most efficient in the Chevys lineup. In addition, GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission will handle shifting duty with ease on all models.
Release Date, Price
Judging for new spy shots, the forthcoming 2023 Chevrolet Colorado will be more attractive. This pickup truck is trendy and is just below the Silverado model. According to GM, the redesigned variant will to arrive late next year as a 2023 model.
At the same time, we expect many models on the market, including the GMC Canyon. Like the current model, the new one will continue to be built at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri alongside its corporate cousin, the Canyon. Pricing is not yet available, but it should be in the coming months.
