Chevrolet is ready to race the 2021 Colorado. Like, really ready to race. This week in fact. The new face for the Colorado mid-size truck will make its public debut October 10th during the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic and will be driven by Hall Racing. Here's a sneak peek at the all new face of the Colorado.

Chevrolet also gave us a showing of the production 2021 ZR2  that will debut in one month at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Check back with us in November for our first hand take at the new ZR2 when we visit the SEMA Show.  Anyways, let's take a look at the changes. 

 

What's new with the 2021 Colorado?

First off, the changes so far seem to be cosmetic and packaging only. No new features or changes in specs have been announced yet. However, the exterior has been warmed over to bring it in line with the Silverado's front end, without breaking the bank on a full redesign (which is expected in the 2023-2024 MY time frame).  Here's the announced 2021 changes. 

  • New front end appearance for ZR2 model. Only Colorado model to have "Flow-through Chevrolet Fascia". 
  • WT, LT, and Z71 trim levels will receive updated center bars, lower fascias, and new front skid plates. 
  • WT and LT will feature "all-new" gold Chevy bowties while the Z71 trim is adorned with a black bowtie. 
  • All models receive embossed 'Chevrolet" tailgates and ditch the traditional bowtie on the rear of the vehicle. 
  • A new "Sand Dune Metallic" will be offered on Z71 and ZR2 models only. 

 

What do you think about the new face of the Colorado?

GM Logic: The look of our new trucks has been almost universally panned as hideous, what do we do? Double down and make all of other products just as ugly.

Oh!  The Horror!

Looks are one thing ... but will you make it home?   And when it comes time for a brake job, is it still billed at 6 hours, thanks to the illogical engineering there?

Wow. I really like that look. It's bold, different, and aggressive. Especially in that color. Not insanely crazy about the CHEVROLET in stencil font across the grill (but I guess the Raptor kind of made that popular).

I guess im failing to see what's actually changed other then some plastic bits in the front clip that kind of makes it look cheaper imo. Was hoping for a different headlight design or something to really make it stand out over the last what 6 years or so of the Colorado.  Color me not impressed here.....

I'm digging it.  I hope it translates to the WT/LT/Z71 good.  LOVE the color.  I had hoped for a headlight change, perhaps HID or LED.

2015+up don't have captured rotors.  Brake changes are no different than a Silverado.  And you will make it home :)

Glad to see they changed that idiocy. BUT, what makes you so confident you'll make it home? From what I see in the shop, things are getting cheaper quality-wise, more complex (more chances of failure), and some states are using more, and more corrosive  materials for winter road clearing. It's a recipe for disaster, unless you can afford to buy a new one every 3 years, or lease one.

I can truly say I am glad I bought my 2020 Canyon rather than wait for a front end rework that would give me nightmares...sorry but the photos would send me home from the dealership with designs on keeping the current truck a lot longer.   There I gave my opinion without ever using the word “hideous”.

I quite like the look, especially the embossed tailgate, hopefully they'll update that ancient interior while they're at it. 2020 and you still have to put a key in the ignition? No thanks.

Jlong,    I bought a 2019 Jeep Cherokee....It did not have a key plus other electronic items to relieve me of having to use my brain.  The worst were the stupid no key system and the other was having to press a button after every start to keep the engine from shutting off every time the Jeep came to a stop....I hated these additions to what was an otherwise smooth ,quiet and fun vehicle...I sold it!

So they took the ugliest part of the Silverado and put it on a Colorado.  Great.  I thought I read on here that the designer responsible for the current Silverado and Camaro front end was gone from Chevrolet.

      I have a 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0 that is having some hesitation/cutting out on acceleration. It’s weird it seems like if you ease into the throttle it doesn’t cut out but if you mash on the gas it acts like it wants to die. It does it in park and in drive. First noticed it when I was pulling my boat out of the lake and I could barely make it up the boat ramp, it was spitting in sputtering until it eventually seems like it cleared up and started going normal. I replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel pump, fuel filter, ran seafoam through the gas, and change the air filter but it seems to not of helped there’s also no check engine light. What could be the issue, thanks!

      Ok so I have a 2015 gmc sierra 1500. after backing up and putting it into drive I get going for about 5 to 10 seconds ill get a jarring lock up for a split second. First time it happened I was going about 40 and I bounced off the steering wheel and left a little skid mark. It sounds like either my transfer case or transmission is locking up but it literally lasts for a split second then goes away. also I've noticed that after shifting from reverse I hear a loud transmission whine before it does it. This has happened at least 30 times for about a year and dealer says they can't recreate it.
      It's the 6spd tranny
       
      Also I know all about the normal GMC transmission clunk when shifting I have that too but I've learned to live with it. This is something else entirely. Its dangerous and I can't find anything on any forum mentioning this issue

      Recently replaced plugs and wires in 2004 Chevy Silverado Z71. It now idles very rough almost to the point of stalling and misfiring. I found a forum somewhere that mentioned wrong plugs but now can't find it to show the hubby. Any help is appreciated! Love these forums!

      Hey y’all, new to the forum and to chevys here (used to drive an 84 Jeep CJ) and bought my K5 a few days ago
       
      off the bat it came with a few problems the guy who sold it told us about, he said that the brake light bulbs would pop while driving, but we took it home (had someone drive behind us) and confirmed that we don’t have brake lights (the bulbs are not blown) or turn signals (front or back) and when we got home I confirmed that the backup lights and hazards (all four corners) do not come on either. And this didn’t happen when we first got it, but the morning after I found the interior light on and had to take the bulb out (wouldn’t turn off) in the fear of running out the battery
       
      however, the taillights and the dailys (I’ve heard those little yellow lights on the sides called that before but I don’t know if that’s the proper term) do come on when the headlights are turned on. 
       
      ive checked the fuses for the brakelights and turn signals and nothing seems to be wrong with them, so I’m assuming there must be something wrong in the steering column, but I’m at a loss of how to go about fixing the problem, and I’d love to get some advice before i go about taking the thing apart or having a shop look at it.
       
      anything is greatly appreciated, thanks!

      Hello anyone/everyone,
       
        As mentioned in the title, i would like to perform a front seat swap in my 2007 Chevy Tahoe with some seats out of a 2015 Yukon.  What I’m really looking for if there happens to be a bracket out there that already exists so I can be lazy and not have to build one. Thanks In advance
