The next-gen 2022 Chevy Colorado will definitively bring more important changes and updates than the last one. This popular mid-size pickup truck will continue to sit on the same architecture, and the manufacturer will make its design more competitive.
GM is planning to update its whole body, and we can expect more aggressive styling and even better off-roading ability. From what we heard, the new generation model will be introduced at some point next year with a slightly higher price over the current one.
2022 Chevy Colorado Design Improvements
The 2022 Chevy Colorado exterior should look more attractive than the current model. According to some gossips, the changes will be visible primarily to the front end. GM stated that WT, LT, and Z71 models could get an updated lower facia with a strong and tough-looking bumper.
As you probably know, the most favorite model is the off-road ZR2 pickup. This version provides boosted design thanks to the new front fascia that looks more aggressive. However, it still retains its traditional body-on-frame bones and classically rugged exterior design. Unlike the other trims, the ZR2 features a raised suspension, wider track, revised bumpers, and a functional skidplate. With this design, the ZR2 is definitively ready to rival Toyota Tacoma.
There’s no much information regarding the 2022 Chevy Colorado interior. From some speculations, most likely that the cabin will include the same luxury as the predecessor. The Chevrolet Colorado is a very well-known pickup truck thanks to its premium interior fit-and-finish materials. However, compared to some of the other segment models, like Nissan Ridgeline, Colorado has been always a step behind. Like the predecessor, it features the same 7-inch touchscreen that comes standard on WT trim.
However, buyers can expect an upgraded Infotainment 3 system and an 8-inch touchscreen display, jumping to LT models. The seats provide outstanding comfort on all trims and are very supportive.
Under the bonnet of 2022 Chevy Colorado is the choice of three different engines. The entry-level model uses a 2.5-liter inline-4 powertrain, and it delivers 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Under the current model, this engine provides excellent fuel economy in city/highway of 19/25 mpg (2WD), 19/24 mpg (4WD). However, we heard some news that this engine will deploy some mechanically changes, delivering even better efficiency.
The second engine is stronger, and it consists of a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 308 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, Chevy offers a 2.8-liter turbodiesel inline-4 that develop 186 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Depending on the model, Colorado can be chosen with either 2WD or 4WD. However, if you need a pickup truck that offers excellent off-road abilities, the models like Z71 and ZR2 are the real deal.
2022 Chevy Colorado Release Date and Price
After so many years of waiting, the eight generations 2022 Chevy Colorado is finally getting the updates it deserves. It provides refreshed styling, excellent powertrain options, and a comfortable ride. From some websites, the new pickup truck version should arrive at some point in the next year, with a price of less than $28,000.
The pickup truck market is crowded with great models, and Colorado will try to beat Toyota Tacoma/Tundra, Jeep Gladiator, Honda Ridgeline, Ford Ranger, and Nissan Frontier.
