After months of waiting, deliveries of the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado have been slowly picking up speed. As such, we’re beginning to see photos of 2023 Colorado owners showing off their new vehicles on social media. With this mind, one interesting trend that’s been gaining traction is swapping the halogen headlamps for a set of LED bulbs.
As evidenced on social media platforms, owners are eager to put their own touch on their new pickup trucks. To this end, some people are purchasing off-the-shelf LED bulbs and swapping them in for the halogen bulbs that come in select Colorado models. Boasting a white hue instead of the halogen’s yellow tint, this allows the owners to upgrade their lighting arrangement without swapping out the entire headlight cluster.
For those who may be unaware, only certain 2023 Colorado units are equipped with LED headlights from factory. The halogen headlamp cluster (RPO code T4A) is standard on Work Truck (WT), LT and Trail Boss trim levels. Meanwhile, the LED headlamp clusters (RPO code T4L) are featured as standard fare on Z71 and ZR2 trims, and optional on LT units as part of the LT Convenience Package III (RPO code PDB).
In regard to other 2023 Colorado developments, General Motors recently announced that a new Kicker audio system will be made available as an accessory for the midsizer. Designed to fit inside the StowFlex tailgate, this speaker kit includes all the necessary equipment for installation, and is waterproof.
As a reminder, the 2023 Chevy Colorado features two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L2R gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which produces either 310 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque, or 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, depending on the tune.
