    GM Reveals 2021 Chevrolet Colorado

    New Chevrolet Colorado Unveiled
    New design features on Colorado ZR2 race truck and Colorado ZR2 SEMA vehicle
    General Motors

    October 8, 2019


    DETROIT — Today, Chevrolet debuts a new look for its Colorado midsize truck franchise. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado will make its first public appearance at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic on Oct.10, driven by Hall Racing. The 2021 Colorado ZR2 will then debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

    The Colorado lineup will now feature greater differentiation from trim to trim and the addition of the new “Sand Dune Metallic” exterior paint color option available on the Z71 and ZR2 models. All Colorado variants will also include revised front Chevy “bowtie” emblems and embossed “Chevrolet” tailgates in place of the traditional Chevy bowtie on the rear end of the vehicles.

    “We’ve sold 520,000 Colorado pickups in five years through a relentless, foot-on-the-gas approach to product and feature updates,” said Bob Krapes, director of marketing, Chevrolet Trucks. “With its new-look front end and tailgate, Colorado will now have a more aggressive appearance to match its award-winning capability.”

    The WT, LT and Z71 Colorado trim levels will all receive updated center bars, lower fascias and front skid plates for 2021. WT and LT will feature all-new gold Chevy bowtie logos, while Z71 receives a black bowtie logo.

    The ZR2 off-road performance variant will receive a new appearance to match its standout capability. ZR2 will be the only Colorado model to feature the all-new, lettered, flow-through “Chevrolet” front fascia. ZR2’s new front end provides drivers with improved visibility and looks even more aggressive, which adds to its dynamic, “segment of one” appearance.

    ZR2, with its revolutionary, segment-exclusive Multimatic DSSVTM position-sensitive dampers, standard front and rear electronic locking differentials, 2-inch suspension lift, 3.5-inch wider track, off-road rocker protection, cast iron control arms, Autotrac transfer case, and multiple skid plates, will now come equipped with standard red tow hooks as well.

    The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado goes on sale next year. Pricing will be announced closer to production. All 2021 Colorado models will be built at General Motors’ Wentzville Assembly Center in Wentzville, Missouri.

    Looks cool, and for once GM has some good pictures!

    Is this a true new model or just some sheet metal changes?

    I drove past a new Land Rover Discovery last week and noticed the rear license plate was offset to one side. I know the older ones were like that because the way everything in the back was shaped but the back of the new Discovery's are no longer like that. It looked off and bothered me a little more than it should of, lol.

    2020 Camaro/next year, anyway.

    Re: GM Reveals 2021 Chevrolet Colorado

    Now I know what they did with all those leftover 2019 Camaro SS grilles.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Not bad, kinda reminds me of the military ZH2 HD Silverado concept truck fascia. I think this face lift is for the ZR2 series off road Colorado though, the regular ones might look slightly different with the traditional bar and bowtie in the middle.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    The bowtie is redundant BTW...if you're going to spell out Chevrolet on the grille, no need for a logo.

    Totally agree with the redundancy.

    I like it on the ZR2. Now we just need to see what the other trims look like.

    Hopefully the Canyon turns out ok. I'm not too sure about the grille extending that low.

    I don't like it one bit, hopefully the Canyon will save the day. I am looking to go smaller for my next truck in the next year.

    Love it, other than I wish they would have changed the headlights, never been a fan of them. That ZR2 looks cool as hell. Hopefully some updates in the interior as well.

    If I had to nitpick something on it. The headlights would be it...there's something "not intended for the US market" about them. A scaled down '19 Silverado-esque setup would've been perfect
