Following the introduction of the all-new third-gen Colorado for the 2023 model year, the 2024 Chevy Colorado features a few updates, including the arrival of the off-roading Colorado ZR2 Bison variant. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Colorado will receive a new rear seat belt indicator feature.
The Rear Seat Belt Indicator (RPO code UH5) will be standard across the entire trim lineup, and serves to help remind the driver who is buckled and unbuckled in the rear seats with graphics that appear in the Driver Information Center.
It’s worth noting that this feature is not to be confused with the Rear Seat Reminder (RPO code RSR) feature. In addition, the 2024 Chevy Silverado also gained this new feature for the new model year.
As previously stated, the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is the biggest update for the new model year, and ups the ante in regard to all-terrain prowess. Developed in conjunction with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), the Colorado ZR2 features a suite of off-roading goodies that includes Boron steel skid plates and rocker protectors, segment-exclusive Multimatic front and rear Jounce Control Dampers and DSSV dampers. Off-road specs include 12.2 inches of ground clearance, as well as a 38.2-degree approach angle, 26-degree departure angle, and 26.9-degree break-over angle.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Colorado will be available with one of 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, now called TurboMax, which produces 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
In regard to structure, the all-new Colorado rides on an updated variant of the GMT 31XX platform, while production of the 2024 model year will kick off in October 2023 at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
