Changes to the 2021 are primarily cosmetic but will be as close as this truck gets to a mid-cycle refresh. The WT, LT, Z71 and ZR2 off-road
Chevys each receive reworked front facias. The Colorado also gets revised badging, paint colors and wheel options and the Chrome Appearance package becomes available on the LT trim. Because of slow sales, the base trim disappears, making the Work Truck the entry-level model.

Which Colorado is the Best?
For the majority of buyers, the LT trim offers the most flexibility. Fresher than the
Nissan Frontier and more versatile than the Ford Ranger, the Chevrolet Colorado hits a sweet spot when it comes to on-road drivability and off-road capability. Chevy could take a nod from the refreshed 2020 Tacoma when it comes to standard safety and driver assistance features. The Colorado doesn't not excel here. However, the Colorado remains an impressive and well-rounded truck option in a competitive segment.

How Much Does a 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Cost?
Offered in base Work Truck (WT), LT, Z71 or ZR2 trims, every truck need feels accounted for when it comes to the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. The WT and its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine have a 5,500-lb towing capacity on the RWD model. Even the base model offers some welcome features such as the CornerStep rear bumper, locking tailgate and cargo-box lighting. The popular LT trim adds an 8-in touch screen with standard
Apple CarPlay and
Android Auto and satellite radio as well as rear park assist. Other options become available to add on the LT, including the Safety Package, Skidplate Package and Convenience Package, including remote start and heated side mirrors. Adding more off-road amenities, the Z71 gets the upgraded V6, an automatic rear locking differential, hill descent control and off-road suspension and all-terrain tires. The ZR2 off-roader adds tow hooks, a robust off-road suspension package and skidplates. It also gets LED daytime running lights, a sliding center-console armrest and a leather-covered steering wheel.
Is the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado a Safe Car?
Standard safety features and high-tech driver assists are lacking on the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. To get any features, buyers must upgrade to the LT trim and then purchase the Safety Package. That will afford you forward-collision warnings and lane-departure warnings only. Keep in mind those are just alerts. The Colorado doesn't offer any active safety tech that intervenes if you're out of your lane or about to hit a car in front of you. There is a Teen Driver feature that allows parents to monitor what their kids are doing when in the truck. Chevy does offer rear-parking assist that works with the standard rear-view camera. This provides alerts to nearby objects at the rear of the truck to help you park. A very helpful tool, especially for those long truck beds.
