Production of the mildly refreshed 2021 Chevrolet Colorado kicked off at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri last June, as GM Authority was the first to report. However, a few of the pickup’s features were not available at the start of production, including the Sane Dune Metallic exterior paint option, a new color introduced for the 2021 model year and offered exclusively for the 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 and ZR2 Bison. However, GM Authority has learned that this new hue is now available to order.
As uncovered by GM Authority, the new Sane Dune Metallic exterior paint option offered on the 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 and ZR2 Bison became available to order earlier this month, despite production of the mildly refreshed 2021 Chevy Colorado kicking off in late June. As we reported previously, other options unavailable at the start of production included (but were not limited to) the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine, and the Crush exterior color.
The latest 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, including the 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2, arrives with new model-specific front fascias, as well as a new tailgate treatment with the Chevrolet logo added in stamped script. The 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 also comes with a special grille treatment that includes the Chevrolet logo lettered across the face, and a “flowtie” Chevy badge as well.
In addition to the Sand Dune Metallic and Crush exterior colors already mentioned, the 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 is also offered in Satin Steel Metallic, Summit White, Black, Bright Blue Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat.
Engine options for the 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 include the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ, which produces 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax mentioned previously, which produces 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Other trims in the 2021 Chevy Colorado lineup also offer the 2.5L I4 LCV, which produces 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque.
