The midsize truck market has some fierce competition, but there’s one midsize truck that routinely beats its competitors with both its features and its capabilities – the Chevrolet Colorado. The Colorado is tough to beat as it offers everything a midsize truck should: brawny capabilities, plenty of modern technology, and comfortable accommodations inside the cabin.

The Chevy Colorado received a style refresh for the 2021 model year, giving it an expansive hood and face that hints at the potent powertrain under the hood. The truck’s wide side panels are clean and clutter-free for a handsome, minimalistic look. Additionally, the ZR2 model received a menacing grille that distinguishes the trim level from other 2021 Colorado trims.
The 2021 model has lots of onboard technology options including Bluetooth®*, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, a Wi-Fit hotspot, wireless device charging, and so much more. Additionally, you’ll be able to add lots of safetytech features to your Colorado model such as a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning.
The base engine in the Colorado is a 4-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. You can also upgrade to a 308-horsepower V6 with 369 pound-feet of torque and an eight-speed transmission. When properly equipped, the Colorado can tow up to 7,700 pounds.
For those who know they will take their Colorado through the mountains and trails of Virginia, the ZR2 and Z71 trims offer extra off-roading capabilities than the average Colorado. The Z71 has a specially-tuned suspension package, an automatic locking rear differential, and all-terrain tires, while the ZR2 offers its own distinct suspension, higher ground clearance, and several other exciting performance upgrades.
What we now know as the Chevy Colorado began as the Chevrolet S-10 compact pickup in the 1982 model year. The S-10 was a “quarter ton” pickup that was extremely popular with consumers and had many iterations throughout the years. There was a Baja version that was perfect for off-roading, and several Sonoma packages that upped the S-10’s power. There was also the S-10 Blazer SUV which is now the Chevy Blazer SUV.
The S-10 was retired after 1993 and replaced with the Colorado in the 2003 model year. The first generation of the Colorado ran from 2003 to 2012, during which time it received several technology updates to keep it current and competitive. The second generation of the Colorado went on sale for the 2014 model year and was refreshed in the 2021 model year.
The Chevy Colorado is an incredible pickup, and it could be yours today when you shop with us at Berglund Chevrolet Buick Roanoke. We encourage you to check out our current Colorado models on our website or in-person at the dealership. When you shop in-person, we’ll set you up with a test drive through Roanoke so that you can see how it feels behind the Colorado’s wheel.
