GM recently pulled the sheets on the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado, unveiling a fresh third-generation pickup truck with a long list of updates and changes. Among these updates is a new trim level cadence, and now, we’re taking a closer look at the latest 2023 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss with the following GM Authority feature spotlight.
The 2023 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss is the second trim level in the third-generation pickup lineup, slotting in between the base WT (Work Truck) trim level and the mid-range LT trim level. Notably, the previous second-generation Chevy Colorado briefly offered the Trail Boss as a package upgrade for LT and Z71 trims, but now, the Chevy Colorado Trail Boss is a full-fledged trim level all on its own. As a reminder, the full 2023 Chevy Colorado trim level cadence is listed from bottom to top as WT, Trail Boss, LT, Z71, and finally, ZR2.
Considering the 2023 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss is offered as the second trim in the pickup’s trim level cadence, features are understandably a bit light compared to the rest of the lineup – just like the Chevy Silverado Custom Trail Boss. That said, there’s still plenty on offer.
Let’s start outside with the new exterior styling, which the new Colorado Trail Boss complements with standard 18-inch High-Gloss Black Aluminum Wheels wrapped in All Terrain Tires. The new Colorado Trail Boss also equips Black Bow Tie badging and a Gloss Black Sport Grille with an MIC Black Surround, while MIC Black Door Handles, Fascia, and Belt Moldings round out the look.
The cabin is done in Black, while the steering wheel is made from urethane. The infotainment spec includes a standard 11.3-inch infotainment screen. The Safety Package, Technology Package, Convenience Package, Convenience II Package, and Advanced Trailering package are all offered.
Under the hood is the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, specifically the mid-range 2.7L Turbo Plus output variant, rated at 310 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, with max trailering rated at 7,700 pounds. Four-wheel drive is standard, as fed by the updated GM eight-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed auto transfer case. A transfer case shield and limited slip differential are also included.
