Here’s When 2022 Chevy Colorado Production Will End

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.

  • Well I hope this article is true and that they're going to use the 10-speed otherwise this will be just another knackered model. Also the 2.8 Duramax has been out of production for a Time they actually shut down the plant that makes that motor overseas. If you don't believe me try finding a new one on the lot you won't be able to.

  • Yeah I am with Kevin, I was hoping for an august time frame. Still debating full size or mid but I would like to see my options in person and would like to get my order in ASAP

  • "....However, the release of the 2023 Chevy Colorado will follow the end of production for the 2022 Chevy Colorado."

  • I not a marketing guru but I think it would be a great idea for gm to ship new models for show. These models would just be for consumers to inspect and test drive,these models wouldn’t be sold. Mid range models, so at least consumers could see the model in person. I have 3 Chevrolet dealers within 50 miles with no new trucks. If one comes in it’s sold so u have to order but who wants to do that when u haven’t had a chance to inspect. Put the new Silverado out along with the Colorado.

    • In normal times. I would have thought you would see the new models at the Detroit new car show in January and so on

  • I expect with the shut downs they have so many orders and so many parts in the system they may have had to extend the time to use up what they had.

    The last year created many issues in many areas.

    I know in the forums people have been waiting a long time on orders.

    • That was my thought also. I don’t want to get my new truck in one of the worst months of the year in Michigan for road salt usage, so I’ll probably end up ordering in the spring. Especially when I plan on keeping the truck for the next 7+ years.

    • And you think the high revving 3.6 is better with the knackered 8 speed? The 2.7 delivers tons more low end torque which is what you want for truck applications. It will also up HP considerably. The 2.7T is a proven motor. Even used in their full size. Look at the F-150. The most sold model in the US for decades. And it primarily uses two motors using induction. Yes there are those that will only buy NA engines but that crowd is not enough to shut down Colorado sales. Not even remotely so. The question one might ask is if they choose the 10 or 8 speed. If they again go with the 8 speed, I would not get near one. The article says it will use the 10 but I'm pretty skeptical until I hear it officially from GM.
