About ChevroletÂ Colorado
The Chevrolet Colorado is a mid-size pickup truck. It is currently Chevrolet's smallest pickup truck in the U.S. and Canada, slotting under the full-sizeÂ Chevrolet Silverado. In Mexico, the Colorado slots above the compact Chevrolet Montana and the similarly-sized S10, but below the Silverado/Cheyenne (the name for some of Silverado's trim levels inÂ Mexico).
The current Colorado was introduced in 2015 and represents the second generation of the Colorado nameplate. The model rides on theÂ GMT-31XX platformÂ shared with theÂ GMC Canyon, as well as the international-marketÂ Chevrolet Colorado/S10 andÂ Chevrolet Trailblazer.
The 2018Â Chevy ColoradoÂ represents the fourthÂ model year of the second-generation Colorado. The vehicleÂ remains highly competitive in its segment, offering two gasoline engines and aÂ diesel motor, which is a segment exclusive. The off-road-specificÂ Colorado ZR2Â was launched for the 2017 model year.Â However,Â the Colorado family continues to lack various features asked by many present and potential customers, such asÂ a moonroof, a sliding rear window, as well as a range-topping LTZ or High Country trim level.
The 2019 Chevy Colorado represents the fifth model year of the second-generation Colorado. The vehicle sees a newÂ Colorado ZR2 BisonÂ package, new exterior colors, a new 18-inch wheel, black bowties for everyÂ ZR2 model. Additionally, the 2019 Colorado gets new set of infotainment systems that represent the third generation of Chevrolet infotainment systems, Type A and Type C USB ports, aÂ second in-cabin microphone, a high-defÂ Rear VisionÂ Camera,Â UltraSonic Rear Park Assist, a heated steering wheel, andÂ 6-way power driver seat on some models.Â The street-focused Colorado RST and Z71 Trail Runner off-roader are also added to the lineup. The manual transmission is deleted from the powertrain lineup.
A midcycle refresh is expected for the 2020 model year.Â It is believedÂ that the update will bringÂ revised front and rear styling, as well as possibleÂ updates to the interior, and powertrain.
For the U.S. and Canada, the ChevroletÂ Colorado is built at theÂ GM Wentzville factoryÂ inÂ Missouri operated byÂ GM USA.Â The model sold in Asia-PacificÂ isÂ built atÂ theÂ GM Thailand plantÂ in Rayong, which is operated byÂ GM Thailand. TheÂ GM Sao Jose Dos Campos plantÂ operated by GM Brazil builds the Chevy S10 for South America.
