The 2023 Chevy Colorado adds five new exterior colors to its palette: Radiant Red Tintcoat, Nitro Yellow Metallic, Glacier Blue Metallic, Harvest Bronze Metallic, and Sterling Gray Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Grey hue.
Assigned RPO code GXD and touch-up paint code WA-130H, Sterling Gray Metallic is one of eight exterior colors offered on the next-generation midsize pickup truck, which include:
- Summit White
- Sand Dune Metallic
- Glacier Blue Metallic (new for 2023)
- Nitro Yellow Metallic (new for 2023)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (new for 2023)
- Sterling Gray Metallic (new for 2023)
- Harvest Bronze Metallic (new for 2023)
The Sterling Gray Metallic color is a no-cost item that is available on all trim levels and can be combined with all available interior colorways.
For reference, here are the three available interior colorways offered on the 2023 Colorado:
- Jet Black (WT, LT, Trail Boss)
- Jet Black/Adrenaline Red (Z71)
- Jet Black/Artemis (ZR2)
The all-new, third-generation 2023 Chevy Colorado arrives featuring a new exterior, a new powertrain, plenty of on-board technology, and a completely revised interior. The new model rides on an updated platform, resulting in a more refined truck that is also more capable off-road. The 2023 Colorado is available in five trim levels – WT, LT, Z71, Trail Boss, and ZR2. The ZR2, meanwhile, offers a special edition in the form of the ZR2 Desert Boss.
Under the hood resides one of two powertrains – the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L2R gasoline engine as well as the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B engine in Turbo Plus and Turbo High Output configurations. The new powerplants are mated to a new-generation eight-speed automatic transmission, which is vastly improved compared to the preceding GM eight-speed automatic, though a few issues still remain.
The 2023 Colorado also gets a new StowFlex Tailgate and new wheel designs up to 22 inches, plus a vast range of available accessories, with Chevy set to offer over 200 individual parts and components from the Chevrolet Accessories catalog.
Production of the 2023 Chevy Colorado started on January 25th at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, while the new ZR2 trim started rolling off the line in mid-May. The online configurator tool is live for the 2023 Colorado.
The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison returns as the all-new 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison and will replace the Desert Boss package. For 2024, the Bison will be offered as a standalone trim level rather than as a package.
Much praise given to the Colorado ZR2 model.
With a relatively easy fix available.
