Chevy resurrected the midsize Colorado back in 2015, reinvigorating the small-pickup market as an outcome. Updates to the truck have actually been light since then, and we expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
We expect no visual changes from the very same looks it’s had since 2015. This is no big shock, as car manufacturers are normally slow with their changes to pickup. The present truck’s interior has actually been among the much better geared up in its class since it launched.
The facelifted truck will feature small exterior changes. The car producer will likely utilize the brand-new generation Silverado 1500 as a basis for the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. The smaller sized pickup will sport the very same grill and headlights treatment in the front and a pair of brand-new taillights in the rear. They may have fun with tailgate and bumper as well, yet the changes ought to be truly minor. In fact, the greatest news will be a potential addition of a sunroof and a brand-new high-end model. Yes, Chevrolet is reconsidering 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 most likely host its own styling hints, which would consist of an unique grille treatment, a bit larger wheels, and unique color treatment.
The refreshed 2019 Colorado will get a few changes inside as well. The taxi ought to get at least 2 brand-new color combinations and technology update. The base model need to feature more basic devices, while the dashboard may host better-quality products. The mid-size pickup truck won’t get any platform changes, so you can anticipate practically the very same cab and bed configuration: Extended Cab-Long Box, Crew Cab-Short Box, and Crew Cab-Long Box.
Under its hood, we expect no significant changes. The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque coupled with either a six-speed handbook 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 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 automobile.
Security is an aching spot for the current Colorado, as it received just “Acceptable” ratings in the small-overlap and side crash tests, and a “Poor” in the headlight test. Contribute to that its absence of automated emergency situation braking, and you can forget it being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.
We expect to see the 2019 Colorado in display rooms in the early summertime of 2018. There are no main rate details yet. With no changes prepared for, we expect pricing to be just like the 2018 model, which varies from $21,195 to $42,995 (destination charges consisted of). Secret competitors will include the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
