Chevy resurrected midsize Colorado back in 2015, reinvigorating the small-pickup market as an outcome. Updates to the truck have been light ever since, and we anticipate this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Changes
We expect no visual changes from the same looks it’s had since 2015. This is no huge shock, as automakers are usually slow with their changes to pickup. The current truck’s interior has actually been one of the much better equipped in its class given that it released.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Design
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 pickup will sport the very same grill and headlights treatment in the front and a pair of new taillights in the back. They might have fun with tailgate and bumper too, yet the changes should be actually small. Actually, the greatest news will be a potential addition of a sunroof and a new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reassessing to add a brand-new trim level which will be named either Premier or High Country. If that in fact happens, the brand-new topper will probably host its own styling hints, which would include a special grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and distinct color treatment.
The revitalized 2019 Colorado will receive a couple of changes inside as well. The cab ought to get at least 2 brand-new color mixes and technology update. The base model need to feature more basic equipment, while the control panel may host better-quality materials. The mid-size pickup won’t get any platform changes, so you can anticipate pretty much the same cab and bed configuration: Extended Cab-Long Box, Crew Cab-Short Box, and Crew Cab-Long Box.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Engine
Under its hood, we expect no major 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 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 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 a sore area for the current 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 automatic emergency braking, and you can forget about it being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to carry on into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing & Release Date
We expect to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summer of 2018. There are no official price details yet. Without any changes anticipated, we expect pricing to be similar to the 2018 model, which ranges from $21,195 to $42,995 (location fees consisted of). Key rivals will consist of the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
