The 2022 Chevy Colorado is the last model year for the current second-generation pickup truck, with General Motors poised to introduce a brand-new third generation for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that production of the 2022 Chevy Colorado will continue two months longer than was initially planned.
Now, however, according to sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2022 Chevy Colorado has been extended by two months, with the final production date set for December 23rd. The last order window for the 2022 model year will be the week of October 20th.
At present, the 2022 Chevy Colorado is available with a trio of engine options, including 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, while production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
Looking ahead, the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado will introduce a fresh exterior that includes revisions to the lighting with new LED elements, as well as the overall front and rear fascia designs, plus new wheel designs to boot. The cabin will be completely overhauled as well, following in the footsteps of the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 with regard to look and layout.
As for what’s under the hood, the next-gen 2023 Chevy Colorado will be available exclusively with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, while diesel power will not be offered. The L3B will connect to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
