We’ve already brought you exclusive coverage of the revised styling on offer with the mildly refreshed 2021 Colorado Z71, as well as a look at the 2021 Colorado ZR2. Now, we’re revisiting the updated pickup truck by taking our first look at the 2021 Colorado LT.
As a reminder, the 2021 Colorado introduces a revised trim level cadence, reducing the lineup to just four trims total. Listed from base to range-topper, these include:
- Work Truck
As such, the 2021 Colorado LT pictured here takes up the lower midrange slot in the revised lineup.
Like the Work Truck and Z71 trims, the 2021 Colorado LT also gets an updated fascia treatment with a new center bar. The lower fascia is also revised, and gets a large, black section just underneath the grille, as well as a prominent faux skid plate. What’s more, the 2021 Colorado LT will also get all-new Chevy Bowtie badging in gold, while Z71 models will come with a standard black Bowtie badge.
Moving around to the rear, we see the 2021 Colorado LT offers up a tailgate with “Chevrolet” stamped into the metal. The style is something we have also seen with the 2019 and newer Chevrolet Silverado, which got a complete overhaul for the 2019 model year that included the addition of the stamped tailgate treatment.
The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is the seventh model year of the second-generation pickup, which was originally introduced for the 2015 model year. The newest model year is not considered a full mid-cycle enhancement (MCE), but rather, is classified as a light MCE or facelift. The 2021 model year brings just a few changes and updates with it, such as the revised styling and trim level changes already covered above, as well as three new exterior colors, new wheel designs, revisions to interior equipment, and package changes. Check out our complete coverage of everything new and different about the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado for a more complete rundown.
