The 2022 Chevy Colorado is the final model year for the second-generation pickup truck, teeing up the arrival of the third-gen vehicle for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Chevy Colorado’s Chrome Appearance Package is no longer available to order.
- Chrome outside heated power-adjustable, manual-folding mirrors (DL9)
- Chrome door handles (E20)
- Chrome rear bumper (VJH)
- Chrome beltline molding (BW4)
The Chrome Appearance Package was previously offered as an optional upgrade for the 2022 Chevy Colorado LT trim level only. The package was priced at $300.
The deletion of this package from the 2022 Chevy Colorado options list isn’t all that surprising given production of the 2022 model year is winding down ahead of production start for the 2023 Chevy Colorado. As GM Authority reported in July, production of the next-generation 2023 Chevy Colorado is set to begin at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri on January 25th, 2023.
As for the 2022 Chevy Colorado, remaining units are no longer available to order with the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine, with production of the diesel-powered 2022 Chevy Colorado ending July 4th, 2022. As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Colorado was previously offered with three powertrain options, including the 2.8L I4 LWN already mentioned, as well as the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine and naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine.
Additionally, GM Authority previously reported that production of 2022 Chevy Colorado Extended Cab models, as well as the 2022 Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Colorado ZR2 Bison, will end sooner than originally planned. Originally, these models were set to end production on December 5th, 2022, but since the original report, GM Authority learned that that the production timeline for these models changed, and will in fact end on November 28th, 2022.
