2018 Chevrolet Colorado Updates

Chevrolet Colorado really had its ups and down. When GM introduced it, sales were a record 150.992. From then sales were slowly declining to reach a critical point of only 3.412 of sold Colorado’s in 2013. When the second generation was introduced in 2012 and two years after that, sales were again high with 84.430 in 2015 and 108.725 of sold Colorado’s. American car maker won’t stop the upgrades and leave market share to plummet again. The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado will receive certain upgrades. These won’t bring anything radical but are surely important to keep Colorado fresh enough.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado – Design

Design won’t be any different. This pickup will detain same looks, and the only thing that 2018 Chevrolet Colorado will offer are new exterior colors. Not only that, but we also expect new HID or LED headlights on the front. The inside of the cabin might only get sunroof optional, while everything else will remain the same. But Colorado might add new top trim. At this moment we can’t say what will they call it, (LTZ or even High Country) but we expect it will come with more features than anything ‘till now. Colorado will remain versatile with offerings like Extended and Crew Cab with a Long box or Crew Cab with Short box.

The V6 is 3.6-liter which generates 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. Six-speed manual and automatic will also remain. There is also eight-speed automatic. The only diesel option is 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel. This inline 4-cylinder engine produces 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
