What’s New with the 2023 Chevy Colorado?
The Chevy Colorado is poised to have one of its best years yet with the all-new 2023 model. The beloved mid-size truck will get a refreshed look, and it will offer enhanced performance. The Colorado will offer multiple options for customization, including a new trim level. Buyers will have a lot to love on this exciting new truck. Here’s a closer look at what’s new on the 2023 Chevy Colorado:
The 2023 Chevy Colorado inherits a new engine from the larger Silverado, which is more powerful than its own outgoing engine. But the Colorado doesn’t take the Silverado’s engine as is – it gives it a few tweaks that improves the performance. The 2023 Colorado comes with a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine that puts out 237 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. The new engine has a stronger cylinder block casting and crankshaft, as well as a fully forged bottom.
Two variants of this engine are offered on higher trim levels, providing more power. The Z71 and Trail Boss trims get a 2.7-liter turbo plus engine that puts out 310 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The ZR2 trim level gets a 2.7-liter turbo high-output engine that puts out 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.
The transmission has also been upgraded to complement the new engine. It’s an eight-speed automatic transmission that has been tweaked to offer smoother handling and faster downshifting.
Improved Off-Road Capability
The 2023 Colorado has been improved to give it better handling off-road. The new model includes three distinct chassis setups for all-terrain performance, including a 3.1-inch longer wheelbase.
The Trail Boss trim has a 2-inch lifted suspension that provides more ground clearance, and it has a 3-inch wider front track. The ZR2 has a 3-inch lifted suspension, as well as Multimatic DSSV dampers.
All models also have a shortened front end overhang that improves the approach angle of the truck and gives it a more active look. Five drive modes are offered to give drivers greater control on all terrains.
The 2023 Chevy Colorado will come with a slate of new technologies. The infotainment system includes higher-resolution screens that have more customization options and Google Built-In for apps and vehicle functions. A new off-road performance display includes information about altitude, terrain, GPS positioning, and more. The new Colorado also comes with more camera views than any of its competitors.
New trailering technologies and driver assistance aides are also available. Hitch Guidance comes standard to help line up a trailer and hitch. New safety features include forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assistance, automatic high-beam assistance, front pedestrian braking, and following distance indicator.
