More urban drivers gravitate towards tougher and larger vehicles for better protection from the elements and higher ground clearance. That is why pickup trucks are now adopting more sedan features to satisfy more customers.
Welcome the all-new 2023 Chevrolet Colorado. It has three specific chassis setups, four distinct interior trims, more cargo bed functionality, and a segment-first available tailgate storage system.
We have the new Colorado right here at Berglund Chevrolet Buick in Roanoke, VA. Check out the packages and options to find the one that fits your budget and needs. Call or visit us today for a test drive.
Perhaps one of the most significant features in the cabin of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is the high-resolution 11.3-inch diagonal infotainment touch screen. It has customizable and configurable screens with a segment-first, built-in Google system that powers the maps and music apps, an off-road performance display that helps drivers see what is happening in real time, and offers up to 10 camera views, including two underbody shots.
The cabin sports a classic design but continues to be one of the most spacious in the segment. It offers 40.3 inches of headroom, 45.2 inches of legroom, 57.4 inches of shoulder room, and 54.7 inches of hip room.
Visual cues like sporty styling and rugged looks increase the urban appeal of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado, and it is evident from front to back.
Its front fascia bears the latest updates with sleek headlamps, fancy daytime running lamps, and a high grille. LED lighting is standard in the Z71 and ZR2. Designers gave it a new athletic hood profile to enhance aesthetics and provide better visibility for the driver and front passenger.
The WT and LT get 17-inch wheels, while the Z71 and Trail Boss have 18-inch wheels.
All 2023 Chevrolet Colorado models use a new chassis with a longer, 3.1-inch wheelbase. It has a short front overhang for a more aggressive stance and a better approach angle.
Here are the various body colors to choose from:
The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado uses only one engine. It drives the front, rear, or four-wheel-drive layout with a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine with variable valve timing, direct high-pressure fuel injection, active fuel management, and a stop/start system.
The base model gets 237 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 259 pound-feet of torque at 5,600 RPM. The mid and high variants make 237 horsepower at 5,600 RPM but differ in torque outputs. The mid-variant has 390 pound-feet of torque at 5,600 RPM, while the top-of-the-line trim levels get 430 pound-feet of torque at 5,600 RPM.
Power goes to the wheels through a Hydra-Matic 8L80 Gen II eight-speed automatic transmission.
The front suspension may use an independent coil over shock absorber, twin-tube shock absorbers, and a Multimatic DSSV damper, depending on the trim level.
The rear suspension also differs based on the variant. It may use a solid axle with semi-elliptic two-stage multi-leaf springs, twin-tube shocks, or Multimatic DSSV dampers.
