What we know about new features, release schedule

Chevrolet on Wednesday unveiled a new version of its Colorado midsize pickup with a slimmed-down model lineup.

The 2023 Colorado is expected to go on sale in the first half of 2023. Development prioritized features owners want and added new ones like the ability to receive over-the-air updates, the engineer said. Chief Nick Katcherian.

The Colorado’s wheelbase increases by 3.1 inches, but overall length increases only slightly, and not at all for the ZR2 off-road model.

Engineers developed the new Colorado architecture to prioritize the most popular features while dropping others.

The 2023 Colorado will only offer one bed length and one cabin size, a four-door crew cab with a 5-foot-2 bed. The old Colorado, which went on sale as a 2015 model, also offered a 6-foot-2 bed and a smaller extended-cab model with a cramped rear seat and rear-hinged “suicide” doors.

Chevrolet will announce pricing and fuel economy closer to the start of sales.
