If you look carefully, the front-end of the 2021 Colorado gets several updates. The lower bumper section features a horizontal element that Chevrolet says is meant to make to truck appear wide, distinctive, and capable. The grille is also updated to continue the horizontal bar theme.

Chevrolet paid special attention to the front air dam / chin spoiler. The company says it still provides aerodynamic function, but the center the air dam is “carved out” to provide better approach angle. The entire chin has been redesigned to make it easier to remove.

The new Chevy Colorado wants to be more like its bigger brother, the Silverado 1500. As such, the new tailgate has “CHEVROLET” stamped into it. It’s very similar to the Silverado.

The engine and transmission lineup remains the same as before. It’s comprised of three engines: 2.5-liter I4, 3.6-liter V6, and a 2.8-liter I4 turbo-diesel.

The company says the 2021 model production begins at the end of the month (June 2020) at the Wentzville Assembly in Missouri. If you are looking for an updated midsize truck, these new models should start arriving at dealerships soon.
