Additionally, the 2022 Colorado is equipped with disc brakes on all four wheels for maximum stopping power.

User-Friendly Utility

What’s New From the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado?

Chevrolet has not made a lot of obvious changes to the 2022 Colorado platform. The biggest changes to the midsize pickup truck are centred around the introduction of the Trailboss accessory package as well as the new ZR2 trim grade and everything that can be added to that off-road-ready variant. Buyers can still expect the latest member of the Colorado family to deliver a strong balance of performance and fuel economy. The truck’s available array of connectivity equipment will help drivers and passengers maintain contact with the outside world.
