Exterior Design & Features

Design Refresh for 2021

The Colorado says hello to the new model year with a dynamic new exterior design that doubles down on ensuring you can tackle any adventure you want, while doing so in unmatched style. Its modern pickup look contains flowing lines from the aggressive front all the way back to its spacious cargo bed, highlighted through its stand-out colour options like Crush, Bright Blue Metallic, Cherry Red Tintcoat and more.

Durable Frame

While the Colorado maintains a sporty look, don’t confuse that for being any less durable or unable to tackle rugged terrain head-on. The truck’s fully-boxed frame creates a durable vehicle that is stable over any environment, and 4-wheel disc brakes complete with Duralife rotors to ensure you always stop on a dime.

Work Utility

Select available features add even more function, utility and convenience to the Colorado, when you truly need it to perform. Its CornerStep rear bumper and corner hand grips allow for easy maneuvering around the truck, while the 17 tie-down options allow you to secure your cargo for a stable ride.

Interior Design & Features

Premium Cabin Features & Storage

Just like the exterior balances sporty style with rugged capability potential, so does the interior of the cabin. The premium onboard amenities blend seamlessly into a cabin design that befits its sporty style, and still leaves a ton of storage options for those with gear on-hand. Best yet, the cabin always stays incredibly quiet, so you can escape from the hectic world and enjoy your own peace and quiet.

Heated Seating & Steering Wheel

When the temperatures dip you deserve a drive that doesn’t suffer the fate of the outside climate. With available leather-appointed heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, you’ll actually enjoy hopping into your truck in the winter, being met with a cozy ride.

Bose Sound System

What better way to immerse yourself in your favourite song, podcast or audiobook than with a Bose sound system. Encapsulating every inch of the interior with immersive sound, you’ll be greeted with high quality audio no matter where you sit.

Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System

Your connectivity hub allows you to stay connected to your vehicle, and to those who matter most to you in the world. This Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system uses Bluetooth and a smartphone connection to let you mirror your favourite phone apps in your Colorado.

Wireless Charging

Cords are becoming more and more a part of the past, and the Colorado isn’t something to languish there either, so available wireless charging is a welcome addition to anyone who wants to keep their phone charged with minimal hassle.

Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

The Colorado is a pickup that doesn’t care if you have an Apple or an Android phone, it supports both through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This simple connection allows you to link your specific phone to your truck and never skip a beat.


Rear Vision Camera

When you’ve got the Colorado in reverse or are operating at low speeds, the Rear Vision Camera will display an image for you of what’s directly behind the pickup. Use this helpful safety tech to back into a space or hookup a trailer. Dynamic guidelines ensure you align your truck and trailer/or spot perfectly.

Forward Collision Alert

Whether you’re tailgating and you don’t notice it or there’s a potential collision ahead, this system notifies you so you can take immediate action.

Lane Departure Warning

Even if you don’t notice it, you may be consistently drifting out of your lane, but with Lane Departure Warning you’ll be notified of it each and every time. The system, though, doesn’t alert when you’re turning or if it knows there’s a purpose for leaving your lane.

What’s New From the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado?

The Colorado enters 2021 with a dynamic new refresh, a welcome update from the 2020 model year. A new front end is the biggest upgrade, with the rear seeing the Chevrolet logo gone in favour of Chevrolet lettering covering the tailgate instead. Further updates were done to the ZR2, further improving its off-road utility, through features like its wider grille and standard red tow hooks.
