The sharper body lines on the front bumper enhance the bold and strong look. The black honeycomb grille at the front which houses the Chevrolet bowtie emblem gives Colorado a classic look. While the WT and LT modes sport a 17-inch wheel, the Z71, and Trail Boss sport 18-inch wheels. 

The 2023 Colorado introduces an all-new interior that blends refinement and functionality with work-ready durability and comfort. The standard 11.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system is the centerpiece of the cabin and it is accompanied by an 8-inch digital driver display. This truck features four distinct new interior options which have sporty round outboard vents, wrapped and stitched knee pads on the doors and center console for select models, and more adventurous contrast stitching on select models. This truck also gets a Colorado-first available sunroof on 4WD LT, Z71, and ZR2. 

The 2023 Colorado also features a segment-first tailgate storage solution.
