The interior of the vehicle has received completely new infotainment systems. Instead of using Chevrolet MyLink, the 2019 Colorado features Chevrolet Infotainment System touch screens that are 7 or 8 inches in length. The 8-inch screens stream in HD color.
The USB ports have seen some changes. Rather than two USB data ports, a type A and type C USB port have been installed. There's also a new jack for auxiliary input, along with an SD card reader. A few new safety features have been added as well.
There have been some minor updates to available packages. The Shoreline Special Edition and Colorado Centennial Edition are no longer available. The Luxury package has had a heated steering wheel added to it. Meanwhile, the Safety package includes the new rear parking assistance feature.
There are 5 available trims: the base trim, the WT trim, the LT trim, the Z71 trim, and the ZR2 trim. The base trim comes with the base engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. The driver's seat has 4-way power adjustability. The WT trim comes with the same features as the base trim, plus under-seat storage in the rear seats. There's also a folding rear seat to increase carrying capacity. The LT model has WT features and 17-inch aluminum wheels, keyless entry capabilities, an 8-inch HD infotainment touch screen, and neat accents. The Z71 adds to the LT an off-road suspension, unique wheels, all-terrain tires, and an automatically locking differential for adventurous people. The ZR2 is the ultimate off-roader, with an off-road appearance package, Multimatic Damping System, increased track width, and increased clearance.
How Does the 2019 Colorado Stack Up in Performance?
There are three main engines that power the Chevy Colorado line. The base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gas engine that can be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual transmission. It clocks in at 191 horsepower, with a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
Another engine option is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine. This one comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It has 308 horsepower, the most powerful engine in its class, with a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds. The third option is the 2.8-liter turbocharged engine, made for diesel rather than gasoline. It's paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine only has 181 horsepower, but what it lacks in raw power it makes up in torque. Because of the superior torque, this engine has an unheard-of towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.
The Colorado Continues to Be a Safe Choice
The 2019 Colorado model has a few new safety features in comparison to previous models. The rear vision camera has been upgraded to HD quality. It's a standard installation on the ZR2, Z71, and LT trims. With previous models, the rear vision camera wasn't HD. For the Work Truck and Base trims, the camera is unchanged.
Another new safety features is rear parking assistance. You can add it to the LT and Work Truck trim levels. It's a standard feature on the Z71 trim. However, it isn't available on the ZR2 or Base trims.
