Chevrolet Updates the Colorado’s Front and Butt

The 2021 Colorado is getting a mild update to bring its look more in line with the design set by the Silverado.

The new face not only apes the Silverado’s centurion-helmet front end, but adds to the aerodynamic efficiency, too. A two-piece design incorporates a front air dam that helps it cut through the air better.

“The front air dam is essential for aerodynamic performance and has been carved out on center to increase the approach angle,” said Matt Noone, Chevrolet Truck Exterior Design Director. “Should the customer desire, it has also been re-designed to be easily removed.”

A center bar with the Chevy bowtie, meanwhile, tends to the more aesthetic side of design, and can be ordered in a number finishes. A bigger grille with larger vents and more prominent corner driving lamps help the truck cut a bolder figure.

Changes at the tail end, meanwhile, are a little subtler. A new tailgate with “Chevrolet” stamped right into the steel replaces the old one that wore a bowtie and that’s about it. Bumpers and taillights remain unchanged.

No mechanical updates have been mentioned at this time, nor has pricing, though reports suggest that Chevy is dropping the entry-level Colorado.

Production is supposed to begin before the month is out.
