Here’s The 2023 Chevy Colorado Sales Mix At Start Of Production17
The upcoming, next-gen Chevy Colorado promises a complete overhaul over the preceding, second generation of the mid-size pickup truck. Today, GM Authority has learned what GM’s planned sales mix will be once production of the 2023 Chevy Colorado begins.
Following the start of regular production on January 25th, 2023, this is what GM expects the sales mix to be among the four trims available at launch:
- 20 percent will consist of the Work Truck (WT)
- 32 percent will consist of the LT
- 25 percent will consist of the Trail Boss
- 23 percent will consist of the Z71
Attentive readers might notice that the ZR2 trim level isn’t included in these figures. Well, the ZR2 doesn’t begin production until April 2023, a few months after the aforementioned trims start being built. Until then, the ZR2 won’t be included in these calculations.
As a reminder, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is set to introduce an entire range of changes and updates over the outgoing generation of the pickup nameplate. Among these revisions are fresh exterior styling, newly available LED lighting, and new wheel designs.
For the interior, the cabin is all-new, with updated seats, switchgear, shifter, starter, center stack, and infotainment system found throughout.
From a powertrain standpoint, only one engine base will be offered in three different states of tune. The turbocharged 2.7L I4 L2R gasoline engine is rated at 237 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, while the Turbo Plus 2.7L I4 L3B develops 310 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the range-topping, high-output L3B tune produces 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
As for structure, the 2023 Chevy Colorado will ride on an upgraded version of the GM GMT 31XX platform, which is known internally as 31XX-2. Production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.

Pathetic puny a** bed for posers.
Hopefully a standard cab or extended cab version will be available with a 6 foot bed in the next few years. Or I need to keep my 2010 Colorado on the the road for the foreseeable future.
Just curious to the people that built too order this truck or any new car for the matter . When I build the truck online is the final price MSRP ? Is there room to negotiate the price with a dealer or is being a truck being built to my liking I pay what the price online shows ? Thanks for any answers or Tips .
That price includes the destination fee. All Taxes and dealer fees or trade fees are not included but yes that is the MSRP and I highly doubt there will be room for negotiation.
No I built and ordered a trail boss with dealer, but what you can do is get in writing that the dealer will not increase you price at time of delivery (like Ford has been doing) ,sales tax and title will be several thousand added to that.
Put the tail gate down and the bed is over six feet long.
I have not had trouble hauling things 8 feet long with any issue.
But I am like most that really are hauling things like 40 bags of mulch, Car Engines and body parts. They all fit the bed perfectly.
There at this time is no plan for a long bed as they sold in so few numbers there was little money made. It took a special frame and bed to accommodate it and they tried but the public purchased so few.
if I needed bigger I would move full size.
Put the tail gate down and it is over 7ft long with the longer bed, so canoes, Kayaks, etc fit better. Just because you haven’t had any issues doesn’t mean others haven’t. The lack of a 6ft bed is a no go for me, that amount of times I have used the added foot to keep something under the cover locked away and out of the weather or just made hauling something longer easier is numerous. Not to mention the added stability when towing which we do is beneficial.
For them saying sales weren’t enough I sure see plenty of signatures on forums with them in there. I wonder what the percentage was?
would like to see a model with a cloth 60/40 front seat and no center consul
After checking the recently active “Build and Price” for the 2023 Colorado, It only has one configuration, Crew Cab, Short Bed….Guess I’ll be keeping my 2019 extended cab for a loooooong time!
My dilemma regarding the new 31XX-2: quality coming out of Wentzville as good or better than the Tacoma? Understand the powertrain (4-Cylinder) dual turbo has been field tested in the T1 for quite some time, and the 8-speed trans supposedly refreshed the shift-points and deleted the gremlins of the past. These are my concerns, just one man’s opinion.
Ordering this weekend, Getting it, “God knows when”.. good thing I’m in zero hurry.
It will make a nice second car and keep your full size for hauling. I was curious about the torque figures right around 3000 RPM max torque. Does this mean you only get half the horsepower at 3000 RPM. So 150 HP and 400 lbs of torque at 3000 RPM. Sound like diesel numbers? So climbing on second gear will get you max torque and half poneys and limiting your speed to 40 mph. Huh? There is something off either with me or the truck.
It’s you. The horsepower and torque curves don’t cross each other until 5,252 rpm.
I cannot wrap my head around GM’s way of thinking when it comes to trim levels. Trail Boss should never be a trim level. It should be an optional package across most trim levels. My 2020 Silverado Trail Boss is considered a LT2 by GM. No memory seats. No factory GPS. No power folding mirrors. No air conditioned seats. No wireless phone charging. If you want these options you have to go to LTZ or High Country. Since Trail Boss is just a suspension and appearance package it shouldn’t affect interior features. Now we see GM has screwed it up even worse with the Colorado. Trail Boss has the Z71 suspension, but they have it slotted below the Z71 trim. If you want the power sliding rear window, you need to move past the Trail Boss and get the Z71 or higher trims. GM keeps screwing up the simple things that don’t need to be screwed up.
Nice looking truck
