2023 Chevy Colorado Configurator Live20
GM unveiled the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado in July, pulling the sheets on a fresh third generation for the pickup. Now, fans and interested customers can spec the 2023 Chevy Colorado to taste using Chevrolet’s official online configurator.
The launch of the 2023 Chevy Colorado configurator follows an exclusive GM Authority report published last month indicating when the online tool would be available.
As an all-new third-generation model, the 2023 Chevy Colorado introduces a vast swath of changes over the preceding 2022 model year, starting with updates to the trim level lineup. The trim cadence starts with the base-model WT, followed by LT, Trail Boss, Z71, and finally, ZR2. The Trail Boss trim level arrives as a new addition, with previous model years offering the Trail Boss as a package upgrade for LT and Z71 trim levels.
The 2023 Chevy Colorado also features a new exterior design, with solid proportions and beefy, horizontally oriented styling lines. Wheel sizing ranges between 17 inches and 20 inches in diameter, while LED lighting is available for Z71 and ZR2 trim levels.
Inside the cabin, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is equipped with an 8-inch diagonal digital Driver Information Center display and 11.3-inch diagonal advanced color LED display with Google Built-In as standard, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Onboard safety tech includes the Chevy Safety Assist package, which tosses in features like Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and more.
As for the goodies under the hood, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is offered exclusively with GM’s turbocharged 2.7L I4 gasoline engine, which is available in three separate states of tune, depending on the trim level selected. These include the base-level 2.7L Turbo L2R, which is rated at 237 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, as well as the 2.7L Turbo Plus L3B, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The top-spec powertrain option is the 2.7L Turbo High-Output L3B, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
Under the body panels, the new Colorado rides on an updated version of the GMT 31XX platform. Production will get underway early next year at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
Pricing for the 2023 Chevy Colorado starts at $30,695, including $1,495 for the destination freight charge (DFC).

Bing zonk the trail boss doesn’t come with skid plates standard . Overall the trail boss at 41k is best deal I think for 4×4. Packages are ok . Tech pack might be worth the money .
It’s tough because I’d rather have a widebody Z71 but don’t need a ZR2 with it’s aggressive tires and odd front bumper. Looks like a nice truck either way.
It comes with regular skid plates. Those ones you see are the optional ones that have much more coverage to them.
Oh ok thanks for clarification . They made it sound like it was add on only
When does the Canadian one go live
When will the gmc configurator be live?
I’m guessing few weeks at most .
Now GM needs to put a real bed on the Colorado for people who actually use trucks as trucks.
i’m not getting a 4cyl truck i’ll go electric first !
Toss the cladding, paint it Marina blue, drop it about a foot on a hot rod rake, do some painted graphics like flames or ?, put a set of 22×20 billet rollers on there, and then it will be heading in the right direction.
I don’t think I am ready to give up my 3.6L that happily runs on regular, delivers me 28 mpg in the city, and 20 mpg towing. The torque ratings look appealing …….But?
I call BS On your 28 city.. the 3.6L v6 does not provide that mpg. more like 10-14 mpg towing. average 18-20mpg city.
this engine will get better MPG ratings that the v6, already has higher towing capacity.
Glad you said that. I was wondering if there was that big a difference from my 4.8L V8 to a 3.6L V6
I can’t help it if you drive with your right foot vs. your brain. I’ve got 35K on the truck, and my wife drives it to work 3X week in Tucson traffic and we always got 27-28.8 mpg. I use only syn oil, changed every 3500M, syn in the rear end and keep the trans flushed and replaced w/syn fluid. I towed my RV across the US and Averaged 19.8 mpg. We don’t jack rabbit start… and we cost at every opportunity. I also have a Thunderbird V8 and I average 24.7 mpg. It’s all in the technique. Oh, I’ve owned 78 vehicles that incl. 8 boats up to 32′, and 30 motorcycles and I’ve never had a repair or replaced a clutch. I sold my ’69 Buick 225, over 50 yrs old and I was never repaired once. It can be done…… Try it.
Ordered a 22 Colorado in February…finally got it in August but was told Lane assistant chip wasn’t in and GM would let me know…December 17 and still haven’t heard. When will it be available please
Probably hi-test is only recommended not required… I’ve run turbos on regular — with no knocking, no problems.. Ford,Cadillac, Saturn— no issues.. maybe less HP, that’s all & never noticeable…
My friend has a Silverado with the 2.7T(that’s right a 1500 with a 4 cyl-T) and he loves it!! So a Colorado is lighter.
I wouldn’t do the 237 HP one though.. others have more torque!!
Your truck–your call!!!
That no employee discount will get lifted once these are in plentiful supply. GM typically does that on new “redesigned” models when they come out. Give ’em a year and let them work all of the kinks out. Then they’ll be available with the discount plus a rebate.
Anyone that doubts the MPG on my Colorado, I’ll be glad to email you a pic I took today of the MPG gauge I took today showing 28.3 MPG from my ride to downtown Tucson making 3 stops in town. It’s amazing what you can get if you’re careful with the throttle. And it is accurate as tested against fill ups. The only time I have received less than 20 mpg is towing in the Rockies. I have ALWAYS been able to beat any mileage posted by the manufacturer or the Gov. I’ve never seen a machine or cruise control than can outperform my driving. Take that GM employee…… This site will not let me post the picture or paste it.
no sunroof option for the Trail Boss is disappointing.
