2019 Chevrolet Colorado: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

Chevy resurrected the midsize Colorado back in 2015, reinvigorating the small-pickup market as a result. Updates to the truck have been light since then, and we expect this to continue into the 2019 model year.

We expect no visual changes from the same looks it’s had since 2015. This is no big shock, as automakers are generally slow with their changes to pickup trucks. The current truck's interior has been one of the better equipped in its class since it launched.

Under its hood, we expect no major changes. The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Up from that is a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic. There's also a 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that pairs with a six-speed auto.

Safety is a sore spot for the current Colorado, as it received only “Acceptable” ratings in the small-overlap and side crash tests, and a “Poor” in the headlight test. Add to that its lack of automatic emergency braking, and you can forget about it being a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to carry on into the 2019 model year.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect to see the 2019 Colorado in showrooms in the early summer of 2018.

There are no official price details yet. With no changes anticipated, we expect pricing to be similar to the 2018 model, which ranges from $21,195 to $42,995 (destination fees included).

Key competitors will include the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and Nissan Frontier.
