2019 Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado is expected to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year consisting of updates to exterior, interior, technology and powertrain. To note, a mid-cycle refresh can otherwise be referred to as a facelift or a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE) in GM speak.

Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Chevrolet.

If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, or have edits to suggest, please let us know here.

Following are our expectations of the 2019 Chevy Colorado refresh:

  • Revised exterior
  • Refreshed interior
  • Changes to features and equipment group structure
  • Possible addition of sunroof
  • Possible addition of range-topping Premier or High Country trim level
  • Possible revision of engines, with an all-new 2.7L Twin-Turbo I-4 joining the 3.6L V-6 LGY
  • Possible addition of the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission on some models, trim levels and/or powertrain combinations
Body Styles
The 2019 Chevy Colorado continues to be offered as a midsize pickup truck with several cab and bed configurations:

  • Extended Cab, Long Box
  • Crew Cab, Short Box
  • Crew Cab, Long Box
The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado will likely be offered with new engine and transmission choices, which we currently do not know. For reference, the 2018 Colorado is available with the following powertrain:

Engine Transmission Horsepower @ RPM Torque @ RPM Rear Axle
2.5L I-4 LCV gasoline 6-speed manual N8D 200 @ 6300 191 @ 4400 4.10
2.5L I-4 LCV gasoline 6-speed automatic MYB 200 @ 6300 191 @ 4400 4.10
3.6L V-6 LGZ gasoline 8-speed automatic M5T 308 @ 6800 275 @ 4000 3.42
2.8L I-4 LWN diesel 6-speed automatic MYB 181 @ 3400 369 @ 2000 3.42

Like all second-generation units of the Chevy Colorado, the 2019 Colorado continues to ride on the GMT 31XX platform shared with the following vehicles:

2015 and newer GMC Canyon
2013 and newer Chevrolet and Holden Colorado for international markets
2014 and newer Chevrolet Trailblazer, also known as the Holden Colorado 7 and Holden Trailblazer

The 2019 Chevy Colorado is assembled by GM USA at the GM Wentzville factory in Missouri.

We expect the 2019 Chevy Colorado to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch on or before the third quarter of calendar year 2018.

Beyond 2019
We expect that the current, second-generation Chevrolet Colorado will remain in production for at least the 2019, 2020, and 2021 model years, and that an all-new, future Chevy Colorado will launch on or after the 2022
model year.

I'm surprised they dont offer the turbo 4 cyl that GM uses in other vehicles like the Malibu and base model Camaro. That would be a better base engine. The 3.6 V6 is a solid engine, 308 hp is still pretty impressive. A V8 option would be nice but no need for it. Nobody else in the class even comes close to the power the 3.6 V6 has. Of course, you only have 2 other trucks in this class, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Ford is coming back with a new Ranger but it will have a small 2.3 ecoboost 4 cyl engine that makes 280 hp. The 3.6 V6 just blows away the competition already.
