Chevy reanimated the midsize Colorado back in 2015, renewing the small-pickup market as an outcome. Updates to the truck have actually been light ever since, and we anticipate this to continue into the 2019 model year.
We anticipate no visual changes from the exact same looks it’s had because 2015. This is no huge shock, as car manufacturers are normally sluggish with their changes to pickup. The present truck’s interior has actually been among the much better geared up in its class considering that it introduced.
The facelifted truck will feature small exterior changes. The car maker will likely utilize 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 back. They may have fun with tailgate and bumper too, yet the changes must be actually small. In fact, the most significant news will be a possible addition of a sunroof and a new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reevaluating to include a new trim level which will be called either Premier or High Country. If that really occurs, the new topper will most likely host its own styling hints, which would consist of an unique grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and distinct color treatment.
The revitalized 2019 Colorado will get a couple of changes inside also. The taxi must get at least 2 new color mixes and technology upgrade. The base model must feature more basic devices, while the control panel may host better-quality products. The mid-size pickup will not get any platform changes, so you can anticipate basically the exact same taxi and bed setup: Extended Cab-Long Box, Crew Cab-Short Box, and Crew Cab-Long Box.
Under its hood, we anticipate no significant changes. The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horse power and 191 pound-feet of torque coupled 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 vehicle.
Security is an aching area for the existing Colorado, as it got just “Acceptable” scores 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 forget it being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to continue into the 2019 model year.
We anticipate to see the 2019 Colorado in display rooms in the early summer season of 2018. There are no main cost information yet. Without any changes prepared for, we anticipate pricing to be just like the 2018 model, which varies from $21,195 to $42,995 (location charges consisted of). Secret rivals will consist of the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
