The new generation Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck won’t arrive before 2021. However, that doesn’t mean that we won’t see anything new until then. No, the car manufacturer already works on the refreshed model, which will be introduced by the end of the next year as the 2019 Chevy Colorado.
The mid-cycle refresh will have the biggest influence on truck’s exterior. The manufacturer plans to add a few new details at the ends, so you can expect to see a new grille and perhaps a pair of redesigned headlights in the front, as well as new taillights in the back. We can explain how it will look those changes at the moment, but the refreshed 2019 Colorado will definitely pick up the new styling cues from the redesigned Silverado, which will be introduced early next year at the 2018 Detroit auto show. In addition, the small truck will also feature a few new color options, while the interior should get at least two new color combination. There is a big possibility to see a sunroof, and perhaps a new topping trim level, most likely the High Country.
The updated 2019 Chevy Colorado will keep the existing platform and cab configuration. There will be Extended Cab, Crew Cab – Short Box, and Crew Cab – Long Box.
Powertrain options should also stay unchanged, though some of the engines might deliver more power and better efficiency. When we say that, we think on a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel inline-four, which will definitely get an update. As for the gasoline options, both 2.5-liter inline-four and 3.6-liter V-6 should come unchanged. The existing 8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode will also stay. However, the car manufacturer might reconsider to add the new 10-speed transmission as well.
Since it will be just mildly updated, the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado will probably keep its price unchanged, so it should cost around $21,000.
