Although a mid-cycle refresh of the current generation of this truck was initially planned for the 2019-year model, we are about to see a one-year delay. So, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado will be the one that will receive a lot of changes. This update is about to bring a lot of changes. We won’t just see visual upgrades and new standard features, but also a refreshed interior design, as well as some big novelties under the hood. It looks like the new turbo inline-four engine will be in the offer, as well as a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
In terms of exterior design, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado will come with a lot of changes. This version will represent the sixth production year. So, there a need for some big refreshments if we consider that the new Ford Ranger is coming soon, as well as the fact the 2020 Toyota Tacoma received some changes recently. This update will bring a lot of styling updates. It should be a classic facelift, which will focus on the front end. Other areas should suffer as well. Basically, the refreshed model should have a lot in common with the recent ZR2 AEV Concept, which definitely brings a more rugged and mature design. Of course, expect things like new wheels and color options in the offer as well.
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado will come with the changes on the inside as well. Base design characteristics will remain the same. This mid-size truck will continue with both Extended and Crew Cab layouts in the offer. On the other side, the dashboard will get fresher, thanks to several new design elements. Of course, expect to see new color schemes in the offer as well. The 2020 Colorado will receive a big update in terms of technology too. We should see a new infotainment system, as well as some other advanced gadgetries and tech features.
Big novelties are expected under the hood of 2020 Chevrolet Colorado. According to the latest reports, a new 2.7-liter turbo inline-four engine will be in the offer. This is a brand-new unit from GM, which is characterized by amazing efficiency. So, it’s no wonder that max output goes around 310 horsepower and 335 pound-feet of torque. Despite a similar amount of power, a reliable 3.6-liter V6 will probably carry over. This engine is good for about 308 hp and 275 pound-feet of torque. Base models will continue with a reliable 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which delivers around 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is a familiar 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine, which features a max output of 180 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. A new 10-speed automatic transmission is another big novelty to come.
2020 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date and Price
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado will probably hit the market in the third quarter of the next year. Still, it could have a premiere a little bit earlier, on some major car show. We don’t expect bigger changes in price, so base models should cost around $20,000.
