2023 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab Review

The GM midsize truck was photographed at the Milford Proving Grounds in crew cab configuration. It also has what appears to be a short box truck bed. Although not yet equipped with production-intent lighting the headlights have a narrower appearance, which could indicate a shift to LEDs throughout the lineup.

According to spy photographers, the truck has grown in size compared to Colorado today, but it still sports a six-lug bolt wheel with a Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude variant wrapped around it. This tire is currently used on trucks that are not Z71 or ZR2. The 2023 Colorado and Canyon will be available in either single or extended-cab variants that slot below the crew cabin. After a major product portfolio overhaul in 2018, plans to introduce a completely new 32xx architecture were scrapped. This included several programs, including a sixth-generation Camaro Z/28 and a midsize SUV body-on-frame that would have gone after the Toyota 4Runner. Instead, efforts and capital were redirected to electric vehicle programs like the GMC Hummer EV or Cadillac Lyriq.

Engine And Transmission

We have also reported that the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado will replace the 3.6L V6 engine with a 2.8L Duramax diesel, and instead use the turbo four of the larger Chevrolet Silverado or Cadillac CT4-V. The output of the engine will vary depending on how the truck is configured. The 10-speed automatic transmission will send power to the wheels. This transmission is used in almost every RWD-based vehicle in GM’s family.  GM’s midsize pickups did not get the Gen V small-block engines that would have made the perfect match; the 4.3L V6 or 5.3L V8 found within the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or GMC Sierra 1500.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab Price & Release Date

If all goes according to plan, the official debut of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado pickup trucks and the 2023 GMC Canyon pickup trucks will be sometime next year. Let’s hope that the global shortage of microchips will be solved by then. The ZR2 model is expected to remain in the next-generation Colorado lineup. It will get a Baja mode setting that should be able to target the capabilities of the Ford Ranger Raptor and Jeep Gladiator Mojave. The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado will be built in America at GM Wentzville Assembly Plant in Missouri. This plant has been recently allocated $1.5 billion USD for future products.
