The Chevy Colorado mid-size truck will see a lot of changes for the upcoming model year, including a reshuffling of the trim levels. The 2021 Colorado will do away with its Base trim, making the WT (Work Truck) trim standard and adding more features to other trims.
Chevy cited the popularity of the WT and higher trim levels, saying that Chevy customers preferred the added features of the trims above the Base. But just because the Base trim is gone doesn’t mean the Colorado is no longer affordable — Chevy spokesperson Chris Bonelli guarantees that the truck will “remain very competitively priced in the mid-size truck segment.”
The 2021 Colorado will also get some new package options, like the Chrome Appearance Package, which adds sleek style to the exterior of the truck. And that’s not the only style upgrade you can expect — the Colorado will sport an altered front fascia, and the Z71 trim will feature a black bowtie emblem on the grille.
There are exciting updates in the cab, too. The new Colorado will come with an auto-dimming rearview mirror standard on the LT trim, for instance, providing you with better visibility and safety without breaking the bank. Chevy hasn’t announced many more details about the 2021 Colorado, but some theories suggest it will see revised engine options, including the new GM 2.7L L3B TriPower engine.
We hope you’ll join us here at Sunrise Buick GMC at Collierville when we can finally get behind the wheel of the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado.
Available in 2500HD and 3500HD models, the 2020 Silverado HD
comes with two upgraded engine options. The 6.6-liter V8 gets 401 horsepower
and 464 lb-ft of torque — a major improvement over the outgoing 6.0-liter V8
option. The available Duramax® 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 makes 445 horsepower
and 910 lb-ft of torque. That with the new Allison® 10-speed automatic
transmission significantly boost the truck’s capabilities.
The 2020 Silverado HD offers more towing capability than prior
years. Certain models equipped with the Duramax® turbo-diesel can tow up to
35,500 pounds — a 52 percent increase over the previous maximum. Models with
the 6.6-liter V8 enjoy up to an 18 percent increase in towing ability. To make
towing even easier, choose the available Advanced Trailering System, which
offers 15 camera views and a “transparent trailer” feature to maximize
Size and strength
The 2020 Silverado HD gives drivers a big boost in size and strength. It hauls up to 7,466 pounds in its rugged Durabed. That capability gets support with the model’s beefed-up front and rear axles and a strengthened ladder frame. It also features a longer wheelbase, greater height and width, a more spacious interior, and expanded cargo volume in both the standard and long box sizes. The 2020 Silverado HD will arrive at dealerships this summer, so it won’t be long until you can test-drive it here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville.
