We expected to see first updates of this popular truck to come for the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado model. As you probably know, company brought back this model in North America recently. Original mode came in 2004 and it was produced since 2012. Same year, company released second-generation model, but this time just for some abroad markets. This mid-size truck wasn’t in offer for the U.S. market until recently. Although it is still pretty fresh, company prepares some updates for the next year. We expect to see several novelties for the 2018 Colorado. We should see some visual tweaks and, what is more important, also new powertrain. New model will feature diesel engine besides current gasoline units.
2018 Chevrolet Colorado redesign and changes
As we already mentioned, first updates are expected to come with 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. What could we see exactly is still unknown. Base characteristics will stay the same, both when it comes to visual appearance and technical details. It surely won’t be a mid-cycle refresh, but some visual updates will surely come. While the base shape will remain the same, visual tweaks could come on some areas, especially at the front end. Also, we could see some new color options and wheel designs in offer. When it is about interior, we will hardly see some changes. The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado will feature pretty much the same cabin, with same design. On the other side, we could see some smaller revisions on dashboard and instrument panel, but those will be barely notable. Also, we expect to see some new standard features introduced for each trim level.

The most powerful Colorado will feature a 3.6 liter V6 engine, which is good for about 300 horses and 270 pound-feet of torque. All engines will come in pair with either automatic or manual transmission.
