A mighty performance
The 2021 Colorado has three engine options, each of which provides plenty of power. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder delivers 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, while the available 3.6-liter DOHC V6 produces 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. For an impressive balance of strength and efficiency, opt for the Duramax® 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel. This engine not only reaches 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque but also gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway.*
With the Duramax® engine, the Colorado has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds when properly equipped. If you want to take a trailer to a campsite or a boat to the lake, this truck has the strength and stability to do so with ease. It also offers a maximum payload of 1,550 pounds, which is more than enough for hauling all of your sports gear, camping equipment, and more. Secure your items with up to 17 tie-downs and conveniently access the bed using the CornerStep rear bumper.
The 2021 Colorado is ready for adventures both on and off the road. That’s why it’s incredibly durable, featuring four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife® rotors and a fully boxed frame. Select the ZR2 trim to easily take on the roughest of terrains thanks to its skid plates, rock sliders, and a factory-installed lift for additional ground clearance. This model also has segment-exclusive front and rear electronic locking differentials along with Multimatic™ shocks.
To have the ultimate off-roading experience, go for the muscular Colorado ZR2 Bison. This model adds wheel flares with 17-inch wheels, rear recovery points, front winch provisions, and five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates to handle a wide variety of terrains.
A family-friendly cabin
Despite its rugged exterior design, the 2021 Colorado has a comfortable and well-appointed interior with ample room for your family. Available automatic climate control and heated front seats make drives in the winter and the summer equally enjoyable. The available six-way power driver’s seat and four-way power front passenger seat also increase comfort when traveling long distances.
The standard Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System has Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities to provide connectivity, even when venturing into remote locations. Make phone calls, send text messages, and put on your family’s favorite playlists through the 7-inch touch screen. Add a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot to the truck as well to stream videos and download games onto your smartphones. And, charge your personal devices on the go with USB ports in the front row or available Wireless Charging technology.
