Chevy reanimated the midsize Colorado back in 2015, renewing the small-pickup market as an outcome. Updates to the truck have been light since then, and we expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Changes
We expect no visual changes from the exact same looks it’s had because 2015. This is no big shock, as automakers are normally slow with their changes to pickup trucks. The current truck’s interior has actually been one of the much better equipped in its class considering that it launched.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Design
The facelifted truck will feature small exterior changes. The car manufacturer will likely utilize the new generation Silverado 1500 as a basis for the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. The smaller pickup will sport the very same grill and headlights treatment in the front and a pair of brand-new taillights in the rear. They may have fun with tailgate and bumper too, yet the changes ought to be actually minor. In fact, the biggest news will be a possible addition of a sunroof and a new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reconsidering to include a brand-new trim level which will be called either Premier or High Country. If that in fact happens, the new topper will probably host its own styling hints, which would include an unique grille treatment, a bit bigger wheels, and distinct color treatment.
The revitalized 2019 Colorado will receive a couple of changes inside also. The taxi needs to get at least two new color mixes and technology upgrade. The base model should feature more basic equipment, while the dashboard may host better-quality materials. The mid-size pickup will not get any platform changes, so you can expect basically the exact 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 horse power and 191 pound-feet of torque paired with either a six-speed handbook 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 likewise a 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that couple with a six-speed automobile.
Security is a sore area for the present 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 braking, and you can forget it being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing & Release Date
We anticipate to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summer of 2018. There are no main cost details yet. With no changes anticipated, we expect pricing to be similar to the 2018 model, which varies from $21,195 to $42,995 (location costs included). Secret rivals will consist of the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
