There’s nothing quite like an old-fashioned exchange. While the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will inherit a ZR2 trim from the Colorado, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is adding a Trail Boss package like what you’d find on its larger sibling. Who wins out in this trade? Truck lovers in Rockland, Maine.
Black badges, including a black bowtie on the grille
Red tow hooks
These features make the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss a must if you love off-road adventuring.
The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is one of the premier trucks in the midsize pickup segment. In addition to the new Trail Boss package, the 2022 Chevrole2 Colorado offers must-haves like two-tier truck bed storage with 13 tie-downs, built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot capabilities, and a trio of powerful engine options.
The new 2021 Colorado and Canyon are being offered with a 2.8-liter inline four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. This is a very popular engine worldwide. The pickups also feature non-diesel options including the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6 LGZ and the 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder LCV. Production was halted in the spring by the COVID-19 pandemic, but everything is now back on schedule for the fall.
Taking Orders for US-Built Trucks
Despite pandemic-related production delays, customers are now able to order a diesel-powered 2021 Colorado and Canyon. Orders for customers opened on July 15 and production began in late June 26 at GM’s Wentzville plant in Missouri. These diesel pickups will be the first U.S.-built GM vehicles made for the 2021 model year.
Changes are planned for both the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in future generations. A third generation of the trucks is planned to be available for the 2023 model year.
Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Chevrolet Colorado were recently named to the list of the 13 Best Trucks for Towing. Compiled every year by U.S. News and World Report, this list considers the towing capability of every truck on the market, calculating which is best for those who demand top-tier performance when towing and hauling. Given their legacy of quality, it’s no surprise the 2020 Silverado and Colorado each earned a spot on the list.
The 2020 Colorado will tow up to 7,700 pounds when equipped with an impressive 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, offering the best towing capacity among any midsize truck on the market. Plus, it’s remarkably efficient, which saves you money at the pump.
The Silverado has an impressive 13,400-pound towing capacity, which is also best in its class for light-duty full-size trucks – including the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. The Silverado 1500 has an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while features such as four-wheel drive, a Max Trailering Package, and twenty-inch wheels also improve performance.
Chevrolet also offers several trailering safety systems on newer model years. The Technology Package comes with up to 15 camera views to make it easier to hitch a trailer and to see around your vehicle as you reverse. There’s also Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade braking, and even an available app to make trailering easier.
