General Motors is gearing up to release the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado, introducing a fresh third generation for the pickup nameplate. However, the release of the 2023 Chevy Colorado will follow the end of production for the 2022 Chevy Colorado. Now, GM Authority has learned when the 2022 Chevy Colorado will officially end production.
According to GM Authority sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2022 Chevy Colorado will end on October 14th, 2022. General Motors will stop taking orders for the 2022 Chevy Colorado in July.
The 2022 Chevy Colorado is the eighth model year of the second-generation mid-sized pickup truck, with production taking place at the GM Wentzville Plant in Missouri. Engine options include the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Under the body panels is the GMT 31XX platform.
By comparison, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is a brand-new third generation for the pickup. GM Authority has already provided extensive coverage of the up-and-coming 2023 Colorado, including a series of spy photos showing a convoy of pickup prototypes and a look at the new truck’s interior.
Updates for the 2023 model year will include a completely redesign exterior, while the power spec will be limited to the turbocharged 2.7 I4 L3B gasoline engine. The 2.5L LCV, 3.6L LGZ, and 2.8L LWN will not return for the 2023 model year. The GM 10-speed automatic transmission will provide the cog swaps.
Inside, the 2023 Chevy Colorado will feature a new layout and new technology, including a new center stack display that appears to be similar to the 13.4-inch screen offered by the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
