Chevy resurrected 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 expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Changes
We anticipate no visual changes from the same looks it’s had since 2015. This is no huge shock, as automakers are typically sluggish with their changes to pickup trucks. The present truck’s interior has actually been one of the much better geared up in its class given that it released.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Design
The facelifted truck will feature small exterior changes. The car producer will likely use the new generation Silverado 1500 as a basis for the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. The smaller sized pickup will sport the very 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 too, yet the changes need to be truly small. In fact, the most significant news will be a potential addition of a sunroof and a new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reevaluating to include a new trim level which will be named either Premier or High Country. If that actually takes place, the new topper will most likely host its own styling hints, which would include a special grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and unique color treatment.
The refreshed 2019 Colorado will get a few changes inside as well. The cab ought to get at least two new color combinations and technology update. The base model should feature more basic devices, while the control panel might host better-quality products. The mid-size pickup truck won’t get any platform changes, so you can expect basically the same taxi and bed setup: Extended Cab-Long Box, Crew Cab-Short Box, and Crew Cab-Long Box.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Engine
Under its hood, we anticipate no major changes. The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque paired 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 couple with a six-speed auto.
Security is a sore spot for the current Colorado, as it received just “Acceptable” ratings in the small-overlap and side crash tests, and a “Poor” in the headlight test. Contribute to that its absence of automated emergency situation braking, and you can ignore it being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to carry on into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing & Release Date
We anticipate to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summertime of 2018. There are no main cost information yet. With no changes anticipated, we anticipate pricing to be much like the 2018 model, which ranges from $21,195 to $42,995 (location charges included). Key rivals will include the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
