Chevrolet's updated 2021 Colorado pickup will begin to reach showrooms in the coming weeks. The company has already started developing the truck's successor, and a recent report suggests buyers who want a V6 or a turbodiesel under the hood need to buy relatively soon because the next-generation model won't offer either.
Without citing sources, enthusiast website Muscle Car & Trucks reported the new Colorado tentatively due out in 2023 will lose the current model's gasoline-burning 3.6-liter V6 and 2.8-liter turbodiesel four. The entry-level 2.5-liter four-cylinder won't return, either. Instead, the only engine offered will be an evolution of the 2.7-liter turbo four currently available in the Silverado and its GMC-badged twin, the Sierra. It will shift through a 10-speed automatic transmission. It's reasonable to assume rear- and four-wheel drive variants will continue to be on the menu.
