The dominant bonnet can even be decorated with a cow bar. Featuring LED lights, this two-wheeler also features Chevrolet lettering on the back of its bed.

The price and release date of the new Chevrolet Colorado have not been announced at the time of writing these lines. Sales in France seem very unlikely, excluding imports. Production of the third-generation pickup is expected to begin in the first half of 2023 at the General Motors plant in Wentzville, Missouri, USA. Far enough from Colorado, then.

In short

The Chevrolet Colorado has finally been updated! Aging, the previous version of this two-room pick-up gives way to the third generation whose design is more muscular. At 5.41 meters long, this large pick-up has a wheelbase of 3.34 meters while its ground clearance varies between 20 and 27.2 centimeters depending on the model chosen. Five versions of the new Colorado exist, called WT, LT, Z71, ZR2 or even Trail Boss. The Chevrolet Colorado also inherits LED lights, two screens on the dashboard, 17- or 18-inch rims and can be combined with a bull bar. Its unique turbo 2.7-four-cylinder engine develops between 237 and 310 horses. Its towing capacity varies from 1,588 to 3,493 kg. The price and release date of the new Chevrolet Colorado have not been revealed, but it is already known that the pickup is manufactured in Wentzville, Missouri. Shame, given the name of this model.
