Chevy resurrected the midsize Colorado back in 2015, reinvigorating the small-pickup market as a result. Updates to the truck have been light ever since, and we expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Changes
We expect no visual changes from the very same looks it’s had because 2015. This is no huge shock, as car manufacturers are normally slow with their changes to pickup. The current truck’s interior has been among the better equipped in its class given that it introduced.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Design
The facelifted truck will feature small exterior changes. The car manufacturer will likely use the new generation Silverado 1500 as a basis for the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. The smaller sized pickup will sport the same grill and headlights treatment in the front and a set of brand-new taillights in the rear. They may have fun with tailgate and bumper also, yet the changes must be really minor. In fact, the most significant news will be a potential addition of a sunroof and a new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reconsidering to include a brand-new trim level which will be named either Premier or High Country. If that actually happens, the brand-new topper will probably host its own styling cues, which would include an unique grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and unique color treatment.
The revitalized 2019 Colorado will receive a few changes inside too. The cab should get at least 2 brand-new color mixes and technology update. The base model should feature more standard devices, while the dashboard might host better-quality products. The mid-size pickup truck won’t get any platform changes, so you can expect pretty much the same taxi 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 paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Up from that is a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic. There’s also a 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that pairs with a six-speed car.
Security is a sore area for the existing Colorado, as it got only “Acceptable” rankings in the small-overlap and side crash tests, and a “Poor” in the headlight test. Add to that its lack of automatic emergency situation braking, and you can ignore it being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
2019 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing & Release Date
We expect to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summer season of 2018. There are no official cost details yet. Without any changes prepared for, we anticipate pricing to be similar to the 2018 model, which ranges from $21,195 to $42,995 (location charges included). Key competitors will consist of the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
