The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado is the new baby in truck town. Expect a facelift as the manufacturers will update the technology, interior, powertrain and the exterior. The upcoming Colorado has its roots with Chevrolet Silverado 1500. It is also likely that the 2019 version will come with the possible addition of a sunroof, GM 10-speed automatic transmission, possible addition of High Country trim level or range-topping Premier as well as some changes to equipment group structures. The Colorado's width is 74,3 in without mirrors; the height is 70,6 in while the length is 212,7 in.
What does the interior have to offer?
The experience of being inside this vehicle is similar to that of a kid who has visited Disney Land. No need to worry about off-road and long distance journeys because this vehicle has enough leg space and it is plated with premium materials. The interior will come with an air conditioner, USB port, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, audio system, Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system, altitude height-adjustable lower driver's seat, GM OnStar service, 4.2-inch touchscreen (Z71 and LT boast of an 8-inch touchscreen) as well as power doors and windows. The 2019 version will also boast of some awesome security features like stability control with trailer-swaying controls and six airbags. The higher trims offer more security choices.
Which engine drives this truck?
The Chevy already has a strong engine, and therefore, it is unlikely that we will see a new engine. However, some petrol heads have been spreading a rumor about a turbo four gasoline mill which can deliver 300 lb-ft of torque and 275 hp.
In the motor world, rumors spread faster than a bush fire, and we wouldn't want to fuel this one any longer. The forthcoming Chevy Colorado will be driven by a 200 hp 2.5-liter engine while a 300 hp 3.6-liter V6 engine will power the more potent gasoline model. A ten-speed transmission will be optional. The manufacturers intend to improve the fuel economy. You should also expect optional manual and automatic transmissions.
Which vehicles will it be competing with?
The beginning of the year is when we should expect the launch of the forthcoming Chevy Colorado. However, the manufacturers should not expect any roses or a red carpet; instead, they should be sharpening their swords because they are likely to go to war with the Toyota Tacomaand the Honda Ridgeline.
How much will I spend for this vehicle?
You will spend around $20,000 to own the base model. The prices will increase as the features increase and the trims get higher. For instance, you will have to divorce $40,000 to $50,000 to ride the ZR2 trim.
The second-generation of the Colorado is expected to continue running until 2021 while the next version will take over after the 2022 model year.
How safe is this vehicle?
The current Chevrolet Colorado fails miserably as a Top Safety Pick; it scored a "Poor" grade in the headlight test, and it performed fairly in the side crash and small-overlap tests. As if that isn't enough, it also lacks automatic emergency braking. The manufacturers will need to improve in this department, but we don't expect much to change next year.
