There are five different trims offered which are ZR2, Z71, Trail Boss, LT, and WT while we will only discuss the crew cab trims in this article the rest are separately written on our website. The range starts at an expected MSRP of around $28,000 which can range up to $48,000 estimated. In this segment, the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado always competes against the likes of the Ford Ranger, the Nissan Frontier, and the Honda Ridgeline.


Features

Chevrolet will offer Colorado in five different trims which are ZR2, Z71, Trail Boss, LT, and WT for the year 2023. The base trim WT comes equipped with an enormous grille look that covers the entire front fascia, along with that the new Chevy Colorado is 2.3 inches wider and rides on a wheelbase that’s 3.1 inches longer which increases the interior space for people and their stuff to fit in easily.

The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado packages details aren’t known yet, however, we suspect it will have better package options as offered in the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado while some of the packages details for the previous build are referred below 

Z71 Midnight Edition @$2,600 MSRP

  • Spray-on bedliner.
  • Black Bowtie emblem package.
  • All-weather floor liners.

Power Package @$1,875 MSRP

  • Performance air intake system.
  • Cat-Back performance exhaust.

We Recommend

We will recommend the Colorado Z71 which is a better suitable option as it offers a premium interior, a gloss black grille, a black bumper, LED lighting at the front and rear, and 18-inch wheels that justify its price tag over the other trims.

Release Date

The release date information regarding the Chevy Colorado hasn’t been officially released, however, customers can go to the official website and get updates regarding the same. We believe that this new Chevy Colorado will be available for orders at dealerships and showrooms in the first half of 2023.

Engine and Performance

Each model of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado comes equipped with a 2.7L Turbo Inline 4 engine, while they generate different engine outputs which is determined by the trim you opt for. Furthermore, all the new Chevy Colorado comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission while these different trims are available either in RWD or four-wheel drivetrain configurations. The base trim when combined with the base engine and 8-speed automatic transmission can generate an output of 237 hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, the base trim can tow up to 3,500 lbs, while the better-equipped Z71 and Trail Boss trim uses the same engine to generate an output of 310 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. However, the top ZR2 trim produces an output of 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque.

The base Chevrolet Colorado offers a potent list of specifications and features including CornerStep rear bumper, Push button start, and remote keyless entry, Lane keep assist with Lane departure warning, OnStar, and Chevrolet connected services capable.

The Nissan Frontier comes with a 3.4L V6 engine that generates an output of 310 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, while it outperforms all of its adversaries with a top speed of 120 MPH. On the other hand, it compensates with a slow 0 to 60 MPH acceleration in 7.5 seconds while completing a quarter-mile mark in 15.8 seconds. On the other hand, the 2022 Ford Ranger can complete a run of 0 to 60 MPH in 6.2 seconds while completing a quarter-mile mark in 14.7 seconds, although it lurks at the bottom of the table with 110 MPH top speed. The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado has an average engine power of 237 hp but a competitive engine torque of 291 lb-ft, while the quarter-mile and top speed statistics are not known yet, we speculate it will perform better than the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado Ride and Handling

The Chevrolet Colorado offers a cushioned ride quality daily in its class, and it easily absorbs bumps and small cracks. Colorado's suspension does a good job of leveling out road imperfections even when the bed is empty, along with that on curved roads it feels solid and composed, and body roll-around turns aren't too bad. The ZR2 trim comes standard with a high-performance 3-inch lifted suspension and wider chassis which raises the overall height of the vehicle, providing extra inches of ground clearance it also assists to navigate or avoid obstacles with greater ease. Chevy provides two Colorado variants made to help you go on adventures if you're interested in off-roading. Hill descent control, locking differentials, and heavy-duty suspension systems are just a few of the off-road features available on the Z71 and ZR2 versions. The light rear end will quickly lose traction when the bed is empty, but stability control constantly keeps it under control.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado Braking Performance

The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado comes equipped with a corner-to-step rear bumper which helps to reduce or prevent physical damage to the front and rear of vehicles in low-speed crashes. Furthermore, it comes equipped with automated emergency braking that comes in handy even if the visibility is low this system detects obstacles and automatically applies the brakes or increases the braking force if the driver is applying the brakes insufficiently or even applies the brakes if the driver fails to do so. The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado had a combination of 12.2 and 12.8 front and rear brake rotors, it is expected or speculated that the new Chevy Colorado will have a better combination of front and rear brake rotors. Some standard specifications list include a 4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc, brake assist system, and stability control.

The braking statistics of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado aren’t known yet, but if our speculation is correct and considering the overall statistics we are quite confident to believe that though it might offer some changes it will practically turn out to be like its adversaries when it comes to braking experience. The 2022 Honda Ridgeline offers a better combination of 12.6 and 13-inch front and rear brake rotors while the 2022 Nissan Frontier comes with the least front and rear brake rotors measuring 11.7 and 11.3 inches additionally, its sheer curb weight of 4,483 lbs can hinder its performance. On the other hand, the 2022 Ford Ranger offers a least curb weight of 4,145 lbs which offers better handling and swift acceleration.

Fuel Economy

The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is expected to have a better fuel economy than most of its predecessors, however, the numbers related to fuel efficiency aren’t known yet. On the other hand, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado had a fuel economy of 18 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highway, and 21 MPG combined while a fuel tank capacity of 21 gallons, however, we expect that its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity will be much better this year.

The 2022 Ford Ranger comes with a much better fuel economy that provides a mileage of 20 MPG in the city, 26 MPG on the highway, and 22 MPG combined while it compensates with 18.0 gallons fuel-tank capacity that is less than its adversaries. On the other hand, the 2022 Nissan Frontier offers a much better fuel-tank capacity of 21 gallons while a range of 504 miles on the highway so you don’t have to worry about refilling at gas stations. The fuel economy statistics of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado aren’t known yet but it is expected to be better than its predecessors. 

Interior

The inside of the 2023 Colorado is completely redesigned and combines comfort and durability for the workplace with elegance and practicality. 

There are vinyl, fabric, or perforated leather seats in the interior, as well as power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support, heating, and memory settings. Furthermore, it now comes equipped with four distinct interior trim options available for the 2023 Colorado range. Sporty circular outboard vents, wrapped and stitched knee cushions on the doors and center console for some models, and more daring contrast stitching on some models are among the four distinctive new interior choices. 

While physical controls are high up on the center console, the dashboard's basic lines are broken up by the round air vents. The new Chevy Colorado will introduce a sunroof while the standard WT trim offers a rugged aesthetic for more aggressive proportions and a wider and more confident stance. Furthermore, it offers up to five passengers seating in the crew cab models and has substantially more front legroom than some rivals, but less overall headroom and second-row legroom.

Furthermore, the truck's approach angle is greatly enhanced by a reduced front overhang, which also adds to a more aggressive posture.

Competition

2023 Chevrolet Colorado vs 2022 Ford Ranger

The redesigned Chevrolet Colorado comes equipped with a crew cab, short bed, and single engine but offers plenty of options that range from a base Work Truck to trail dusting ZR2 trim. It also offers a stylish interior cabin, spacious headroom and legroom, and high-tech standard features. On the other hand, the 2022 Ford Ranger offers unimpressive off-road handling, much less exterior dimensions, and a competitive price tag.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado vs 2022 Nissan Frontier

The 2022 Nissan Frontier includes a stronger base engine and significant off-road improvements. Additionally, providing excellent driving dynamics and guarantees the safety of all passengers while driving. On the other hand, the 2023 Chevy Colorado comes with an all-new redesigned power, capability, and high-tech features that make it dominate over its counterpart.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado vs 2022 Honda Ridgeline 

The Honda has a little more dapper appearance than the new Colorado which offers a towering posture and an aggressive design that also accounts when it comes to midsize pickup trucks. In contrast to the Honda Ridgeline, the Chevrolet Colorado, however, promises an overall improved experience. Furthermore, the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado offers a more up-to-date and feature-rich interior than the Honda Ridgeline since it is a more recent model.

Final Verdict

Yes, we recommend the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado offers a plethora of amenities, an infotainment system that is bigger and easier to use with more beautiful graphics, superior engine performance at the ZR2 level, and the ability to travel farther off the road than most of its rivals.
