The 2023 Chevy Colorado is bigger, fresher, and packed with technology
Chevrolet’s redesigned Colorado mid-size pickup truck will have a new exterior look, improved interior, and enhanced technology in the first major redesign since 2015.
When the Chevy Colorado goes on sale in the first half of 2023, it’ll be offered in five different trim levels. The base Work Truck (WT) will be the entry point, and from there, customers can step up to the Colorado LT, Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2. All configurations will run on regular unleaded. Wheel sizes vary between 17 and 18-inch, depending on the model.
The Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2 have varying levels of off-road capability, with the ZR2 being the most extreme. Regardless of trim, every Colorado will be offered with the same Crew Cab and short-box configuration. The truck is a little larger in each dimension than before, and its wheels have the same bolt pattern as the larger Silverado pickup, opening the door for more options. Overall, the new look is clean, and the Z71 and ZR2 models come with LED lighting. Depending on the trim level, the Colorado has as many as five different drive modes. The 2023 Colorado also has better towing and connectivity. The 7,700-pound maximum towing capacity and 1,684-pound payload are higher than the current model.
A big highlight of the Colorado’s cabin is the standard 11.3-inch central touchscreen, running an updated version of Chevy’s easy-to-use infotainment software. There are customizable pages, an off-road-specific display (altitude, roll, pitch, etc.), and built-in Google apps for maps, music, and more. On top of that, all Colorados come with an 8-inch digital gauge cluster. The Colorado will have up to 10 camera views, including underbody and rear cameras,to help with off-roading and connecting trailers.
Chevrolet says production of the 2023 Colorado will begin in the first half of 2023 at General Motors’ Wentzville, Mo., assembly facility, where the current model is built. Pricing will be announced closer to the release date.
