New 2022 Chevy Colorado Redesign – GM finds success with their latest intermediate pickups, there is no doubt that the next generation of Colorado and Canyon is already in development. Although these trucks are not expected until 2022 or 2023, let’s see what we can expect from this truck based on the comments made by GM executives and the instructions contained in some of the recent GM Debuts.

At the above rendering, we divide the distinction between the design languages found in Silverado and Tahoe and the crossover design languages that debuted on the Blazer. Colorado currently does not strictly adhere to the boxy GM’s full-size language pickup design, so there is a precedent for Colorado to have a unique design.

Since the Chevrolet has used the new design of the language for their recent debut, from the TrailBlazer to Tahoe to Silverado HD, next-generation Colorado will likely move from the conservative styling of the current model.

2022 Chevy Colorado Engine

As far as powertrains go, the turbocharged 2.7 L 4-cylinder of Silverado seems like a good bet. In the application, it makes 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft torque, more than what the current Colorado 3.6 L V6 produces, especially in terms of torque.

Although some competitors such as the Ford Ranger are simplifying their engine formations exclusively 4-cylinder engines, the numbers generated by the Turbo 2.7 are high enough that GM could see fit to add a cheaper, less powerful engine.

If that’s the case, we expect next-generation Colorado to use a good new version of the 2.5 L 4-cylinder powering current trucks, where it makes 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft. of torque, or the latest version of GM 2.0 L Turbo 4-cylinder found in Acadia and Blazer where it produces 230 horsepower.

2022 Chevy Colorado Diesel

The choice of diesel engines is where some uncertainty arises. Colorado currently uses the 2.8 L Duramax 4-cylinder engine which produces 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft torque. 2020 Silverado 1500 uses the new 3.0 L Duramax 6-cylinder diesel which produces 270 horsepower and 460 lb-ft torque.

2022 Chevy Colorado Competitors

Given that Jeep Gladiators, one of Colorado’s major competitors were to use larger 6-cylinder diesel engines, it seems likely that Colorado would drop a 4-cylinder Duramax and adopt Silverado 1500’s larger diesel engine to stay competitive.

Mary Barra, the GM CEO, has gone on a note stating that GM will have en electric pickups that take place on sales at the end of 2021. Since Colorado’s next generation is scheduled to start after this, we won’t be surprised to see the electric version of Colorado as well.

2022 Chevy Colorado Features

Colorado is already showing its age when it comes to technological features, eliminating passive incoming and pressing Start buttons, as well as things like adaptive cruise control, Head-up Display, and LED light-all things found throughout the current GM SUV and full-size truck lineup.

We expect Colorado to get a huge boost in active safety features and is given the tendency of the pickup market to inches upwards into the fancy region, the next Colorado should also have a Premier Trim level for buyers seeking more refinement and comfort than the intermediate size pickup.

Colorado has just received a small exterior Restyling for the 2021 year model, so it should keep the design looking fresh until a new model arrives in a few years.
