Chevy Colorado has been fully redesigned a year ago. The new 2016 Chevrolet Colorado comes with some small but noticeable updates and changes.
Design of exterior
2016 Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup truck which will show many improvements, especially in performance. It will be available in three trim levels. Those are: WT, LT and Z71. It will be great to handle and with excellent towing capacity. When it comes to exterior design, it won’t much differ from the current model. However, we can expect thinner and smaller grille and boxy fenders. Unfortunately, we can’t reveal more since there are no more information about its exterior changes. We can only say for sure that it will be handsome and great-looking vehicle.
Interior and technology
2016 Chevrolet Colorado will be available with a four-door crew cab or an extended cab. The interior is quite spacious and comfortable. The cabin will provide enough head and leg room. The steering wheel has many control buttons on it to make the ride easier for a driver. A 4.2-inch color touch screen will be placed on the center of the dashboard. As for the equipment, it will come standard with an AM/FM radio, air conditioning, USB, a rearview camera etc. It will be also available with Chevy MyLink 8-inch touch screen, more USB ports, navigation system, leather upholstery, Bose audio system with 7 speakers, Bluetooth, rear-sliding window and so on. As for the safety, it will be provided with six airbags, a lane-departure warning system, forward-collision alerts, a rearview camera etc.
Engine and performance
2016 Chevrolet Colorado will be powered with several types of engine. The one is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The other option is a 3.6-liter V6 with the output of 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. The last is a new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel engine. It will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The power will be sent to rear wheels. AWD will be optional. It will show better fuel efficiency than its predecessor. It is estimated to be 20/27 mpg in the city/highway drive and 22 mpg combined.
