It’s been no secret that the rollout of the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado has been slow at best, as sales of the next-gen midsizer were markedly down as compared to figures to quarters prior. Now, it appears as though deliveries of the Colorado has picked up drastically.
Although General Motors is currently only publishing quarterly sales figures, GM Authority has learned that the Chevy Colorado enjoyed its best retail sales month since December 2020 over the course of June 2023. This is quite notable considering that the midsize pickup had a down Q2 2023, indicating that sales were indeed quite robust during June 2023.

In other Colorado-related news, GM Authority reported that deliveries of the off-road-focused 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 began in late June 2023.

The 2023 model-year-only Desert Boss package adds even more off-road features like 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, a new off-road bumper and fascia treatment, a roof-mounted light bar, and more for the most hardcore customers.
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.
