The 2021 Chevy Colorado in the entry-level Work Truck (WT) trim level is offered with an appearance package called the Custom Special Edition Package. Many Chevy customers are probably unaware of this little-known package’s existence, so we decided to take a closer look at it and go over what kind of features it adds to the basic Colorado WT.
The Custom Special Edition Package carries RPO code WGV and is available on every Chevy Colorado body configuration, which includes the Extended Cab Long Bed, Crew Cab Short Bed and Crew Cab Long Bed. The package adds $1,135 to the price of the Colorado WT and includes the following equipment (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- 18″ x 8.5″ Dark Argent Metallic cast aluminum wheels (RPO RCV)
- 265/60R18 all-season, blackwall tires (RPO QIA)
- Body-color rear bumper (RPO VT5)
- Body-color door handles (RPO D75)
- Body-color mirrors (RPO DL6)
- Driver-side spotter mirror (RPO 9B7)
This package gives the affordable Colorado WT a slightly more upscale look thanks to the body-color front bumper, door handles and mirrors as well as 18-inch cast aluminum wheels. Without this package applied, the Colorado WT looks more like, well, a work truck with its tough black plastic exterior trim and budget-minded 17-inch steel wheels. By ordering this package with the Colorado WT, customers can buy the most affordable trim level and upgrade it with an attractive appearance package that won’t break the bank.
Pricing for the Chevy Colorado starts at $26,395 for an Extended Cab, Long Bed model in the WT trim level with rear-wheel drive and the naturally aspirated 2.5L LCV four-cylinder engine. The WT trim level can also be equipped with the optionally available 3.6L LGX V6 engine and four-wheel drive for a price premium.
