Just one model year removed from the introduction of the all-new third-generation of the Bow Tie brand’s midsize pickup, the 2024 Chevy Colorado receives a few updates for the new model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Colorado is set to be available with the Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering feature.
By combining the Colorado’s Safety Package (RPO code B26) with the Advanced Trailering Package (ZL6), Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering (RPO code UKW) replaces Blind Zone Steering Assist (RPO code UKI). The Safety Package includes the following (relevant RPO code in parenthesis):
- Blind Zone Steering Assist (UKI) (WT, LT, Trail Boss and Z71 only)
- Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering (UKW) (ZR2 only, or when the Advanced Trailering Package is also chosen)
- Rear Cross Traffic Braking (UFB)
- Rear Park Assist (UD7)
- Heated outside rearview mirrors (DLF) (Work Truck, LT and Trail Boss only)
Meanwhile, the Advanced Trailering Package includes the following (relevant RPO code in parenthesis):
- Trailer hitch and 7-pin connector
- Trailer brake controller (JL1) (Work Truck and LT only)
- Automatic locking rear differential (G80) (Work Truck and LT only)
- Trailering App (U1D)
It’s worth noting that the Safety Package is optional on all trim levels. However, on the Colorado ZR2, the Advanced Trailering Package is not required to get Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering.
As a reminder, the 2023 Chevy Colorado is offered with 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.
