The 2023 Chevy Colorado has been announced, with production expected for early next year Chevrolet has revealed what trims will be offered. Both the LT and Work Truck (WT) remain mainstays of the lineup. Pricing information remains elusive however, but expect both the LT and WT to be the most affordable trim levels offered. Until we get full pricing details on the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado, we have a plethora of updates to chew on.
2023 Chevrolet Colorado Engine
Every 2023 Chevrolet Colorado trim level will feature the same engine although they will be offered with different outputs depending on model. The WT and LT share the same standard variant, a 2.7L Turbo engine, that provides 237 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. You can upgrade that however, to the 2.7L Turbo Plus engine (the same one in the Trail Boss) that puts out 310 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. According to Chevrolet, these numbers deliver overall improvements of 18% more horsepower and 36% better torque than the outgoing 2.5L naturally aspirated four cylinder engine in the base Colorado. Fuel economy is TBA.
Max trailering ability sits at 3,500 pounds and 7,700 pounds for the Turbo and Turbo Plus engines respectively. Chevy states that the 2023 Colorado comes with up to 10 camera views, more than any of its competitors, that are accessible via the 11.3 inch infotainment screen inside the cab. Also available are a suite of hauling technologies such as hitch guidance, hitch view, and a trailering app, all of which are meant to make every stage of hauling, a breeze.
If that wasn’t enough, the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado WT comes standard with up to 17 tie downs in the bed. Also integrated into the bed are four stake pockets as well as multiple in-bed pockets for added storage. There are two grooves on the bed wall to make transporting bicycles and motorcycles easy and less awkward. Chevy states that a 110-volt power outlet, spray in bed liner, and remote tailgate will be available as optional add-ons as well as a tailgate storage system.
