2021 Chevrolet Colorado for Sale in Johnston, RI
The second generation of the Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2015 after a three-year break, marking GM’s return to the midsized pickup game. Since then, it’s been one of the top-selling models in its segment, going up against the revived Ford Ranger as its closest rival. Now the time has come for the Colorado’s next redesign, which will be for the 2021 model year. Given the rumors circulating about what this revamped edition will bring with it, the Ford Ranger just might have its work cut out for it again.
Exterior and Interior Changes
As far as the 2021 Chevy Colorado’s trim lineup is concerned, the base model has been given the axe. All other trims made the cut though, which include the Work Truck, LT, Z71, and ZR2. On the outside, the 2021 Chevy Colorado will flaunt a brand-new fascia, which for the Work Truck, LT, and Z71 will consist of updated center bars and skid plates. The ZR2 will receive a more aggressive front end as well. What’s more, the revised front ends will also get a new Chevy emblem: the Work Truck and LT will sport an all-new gold bowtie logo, while the Z71’s will be blacked out. For the ZR2, the treatment will be a “CHEVROLET” lettered grille and “flowtie” (for better aerodynamics and cooling functions). Imposing 17-inch wheels will contribute to the truck’s rugged and commanding presence.
Three new color schemes will enter the picture as well: Bright Blue Metallic, Cherry Red Tintcoat, and Sand Dune Metallic. Plus, a new elective Chrome Appearance Package for the LT variant will yield a shiny chrome grille, side mirrors, door handles, rear bumper, and beltline molding. Rounding out the list of exterior changes is the deletion of the windshield shade band across the entire 2021 Colorado lineup.
Inside, the 2021 Chevy Colorado adds a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror for the LT and above trims. These trims will also receive a new audio system and an 8-inch touchscreen display with Chevy Infotainment 3, plus Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, voice command capability, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other than that, the rest of the pickup’s interior will remain relatively untouched.
The 2021 Chevy Colorado is slated to arrive later this year, but considering the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on operations at the GM manufacturing plant in Missouri, an accurate release date has yet to be announced. It should be released no later than the first quarter of 2021.
