Chevy reanimated the midsize Colorado back in 2015, renewing the small-pickup market as a result. Updates to the truck have actually been light ever since, and we anticipate this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Changes
We anticipate no visual changes from the exact same looks it’s had because 2015. This is no huge shock, as automakers are usually sluggish with their changes to pickup trucks. The current truck’s interior has been among the better geared up in its class given that it released.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Design
The facelifted truck will feature minor exterior changes. The car maker will likely use the brand-new generation Silverado 1500 as a basis for the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. The smaller sized pickup will sport the same grill and headlights treatment in the front and a set of new taillights in the rear. They may have fun with tailgate and bumper as well, yet the changes must be truly small. Actually, the most significant news will be a potential addition of a sunroof and a brand-new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reconsidering to include a brand-new trim level which will be called either Premier or High Country. If that in fact takes place, the new topper will most likely host its own styling cues, which would consist of an unique grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and special color treatment.
The revitalized 2019 Colorado will get a couple of changes inside also. The cab should get at least 2 new color mixes and technology update. The base model must feature more standard equipment, while the dashboard might host better-quality products. The mid-size pickup won’t get any platform changes, so you can anticipate pretty much the exact same taxi and bed configuration: Extended Cab-Long Box, Crew Cab-Short Box, and Crew Cab-Long Box.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Engine
Under its hood, we expect no significant changes. The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horse power and 191 pound-feet of torque coupled with either a six-speed manual or automated transmission. Up from that is a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automated. There’s also a 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that pairs with a six-speed car.
Security is an aching area for the existing Colorado, as it received just “Acceptable” scores in the small-overlap and side crash tests, and a “Poor” in the headlight test. Contribute to that its lack of automated emergency braking, and you can ignore it being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing & Release Date
We expect to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summer of 2018. There are no official rate information yet. With no changes anticipated, we expect pricing to be similar to the 2018 model, which varies from $21,195 to $42,995 (location costs consisted of). Key competitors will consist of the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
