A choice of three engines lets you tailor your 2021 Colorado to your needs. Efficient and unassuming, the base 2.5-litre 4-cylinder does a little bit of everything, and does it well, with 200 horsepower and a low estimated fuel efficiency rate of just 12.2 L/100 km in the city. Next up, a 3.6-litre V6 offers up a best-in-class 308 horsepower, along with a hearty 275 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.8-litre Duramax Turbo-Diesel gives you serious towing efficiency thanks to a heavy-duty 369 lb-ft of torque: nice. A few trim levels provide the 2021 Colorado with serious off-road chops, from the segment-exclusive Multimatic™ shocks found in the Colorado ZR2, to the hot-stamped boron steel skid plates and American Expedition Vehicles-designed wheel flares, front winch provisions, and rear recovery points of the ZR2 Bison.

Safety & Technology

Of course, just like every other Chevy truck the 2021 Colorado features a wealth of advanced technology like the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with available wireless charging and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The multitude of safety features like a high-strength steel frame, host of airbags, reinforced safety cage, and StabiliTrak with Traction Control ensures confidence on the road, while advanced driver assistance features like the standard Rear Vision Camera or available Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning make every trip a breeze.

Chevrolet Colorado Model Changes

Aggressive styling updates headline the list of changes from the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado to the 2021 version. This is most obvious on the ZR2 which now features a taller, narrower grille, more ground clearance, and an Off-Road Appearance Package including red tow hooks. That same appearance package is also host to a new Sand Dune metallic paint option, and can be applied to the Z71 trim as well. All the models feature updated front fascias, as well as new badging than the 2020 Colorado.
