GM officially unveiled the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado last July, debuting a fresh third generation complete with updates to the model line, a new exterior, a totally overhauled interior, and a new powertrain as well. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the 2023 Chevy Colorado WT in Harvest Bronze Metallic paint courtesy of the following GM Authority photo gallery.
This is the first time we’ve seen the 2023 Chevy Colorado WT in Harvest Bronze Metallic paint out in the real world, giving us a better idea what the configuration looks like under the natural light of an overcast winter day in Michigan. For those readers who may be unaware, the 2023 Chevy Colorado WT (or Work Truck) is the base model of the lineup, with the rest of the trim level cadence including LT, Z71, ZR2, and the new-for-2023 Trail Boss (the Trail Boss was previously offered as a package upgrade for LT and Z71 trim levels).
As the entry-level trim, the 2023 Chevy Colorado WT keeps things pretty basic, with standard spec throwing on 17-inch Painted Ultra Silver wheels wrapped in All-Season tires. The front fascia presents an MIC Black finish, while MIC Black can also be found on the door handles and sideview mirrors. Halogen lighting with an automatic on / off feature is also standard equipment.
Notably, all 2023 Chevy Colorado trim levels receive updated styling front and rear, and this particular WT model is no different. That said, this model is also presented in Harvest Bronze Metallic Paint. Tagged with paint code GXN, Harvest Bronze Metallic Paint is one of eight exterior paint options available.
As for the greasy bits under the hood, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine across the line. That said, this engine is available in three states of tune, depending on the trim level selected. As expected, the WT trim runs the “base” 2.7L Turbo tune, which gets its own RPO code (L2R) and is rated at 237 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. The WT is also offered with the mid-range 2.7L Turbo Plus tune (310 horsepower, 390 pound-feet of torque), while the range-topping 2.7L Turbo High-Output tune (310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque) is not available for WT models.
