Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Chevrolet Colorado

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 8, 2020
  • 2021 Colorado selection improving
  • Factory rebate increases to $2,500
  • Lease a 2021 LT 4x4 Crew from $259 for 36 months
  • Get 0.9% APR for 72 months + 750 bonus

Increasing supplies:

The refreshed 2021 Colorado continues to populate dealers nationwide. The latest Colorado wears revised styling borrowed from the brand's full-size Silverado pickup. The slow-selling Base trim is no more.

The mid-level LT is most common, especially in Crew Cab form, and generally sells at a favorable price point. High-volume dealers that specialize in trucks generally offer the best pricing across the board.

Current offers are available on a national basis and will expire November 30, 2020 unless otherwise noted. Chevy sometimes enhances incentives ahead of Black Friday weekend.

Cash of the top:

Chevy now offers a $2,500 rebate on the 2021 Colorado to all buyers. We consider this a generous amount for this early stage of the model year.

Leasing looks great:

Current lessees of any brand can once again lease a 2021 Colorado LT 4x4 Crew Cab from $259 for 36 months (10,000 miles a year) with $2,189 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost works out to $320, an exceptional value for this price class.

If you're not currently in a lease, your total cost may be higher, but you can still expect very good value.

APR and cash combo:

In place of the standard rebate, Chevy offers 0.9% financing for 72 months on the 2021 Colorado, plus $750 bonus cash.

2021 Chevrolet Colorado Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado gets cosmetic tweaks to the front end aimed at greater differentiation between trims. All models wear updated badging and the Chevrolet name embossed on the tailgate. The slow-selling base trim has been dropped, so prices start $4,000 higher than last year.

The current Colorado arrived in 2015 and has received steady equipment upgrades since then.

Choosing Your Chevy Colorado

The Colorado comes in four trim levels: WT, LT, Z71, and ZR2. Pricing starts at $26,395 including destination for the WT and $42,795 for the ZR2.

Engine Choices

The Colorado is offered with a four-cylinder engine, a V6, and a four-cylinder turbodiesel.

Engine TypeTrim LevelHorsepowerTorqueMax TowingFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-CylinderStd: WT, LT200 hp191 lb-ft3,500 pounds22 mpg
3.6L V6Std: Z71, ZR2
Opt: WT, LT
308 hp275 lb-ft7,000 pounds21 mpg
2.8L Turbodiesel 4-CylinderOpt: LT, Z71, ZR2181 hp369 lb-ft7,700 pounds23 mpg

The V6 can be added to the WT and LT starting at a reasonable $1,485. The turbodiesel adds about $3,500 to $6,900 to the price, depending on trim and configuration.

The V6 uses a eight-speed automatic transmission, and the 2.5-liter and turbodiesel come with a six-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is standard on the ZR2, and costs anywhere from $3,200 to $3,900 elsewhere in the lineup.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Colorado is a midsize pickup offered in two cab styles. The standard Extended Cab seats four passengers, with a pair of folding rear seats intended for the occasional short trip. The Crew Cab features conventional rear doors and a full-width rear seat that boosts seating to five.

The Extended Cab comes exclusively with a 6-foot-2-inch box that holds 49.9 cubic feet of cargo. Crew Cabs get a 5-foot-2-inch box good for 41.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The longer box is available on Crew Cabs for $2,300.

Safety Features

Like some other midsize pickups, the Colorado is light on driver assistance technology. That is, the WT, LT, and ZR2 don't come with any standard active safety features, while the Z71 only gets rear parking sensors.

The best you can do is the LT's Safety Package ($690), which provides forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and rear parking sensors. This package is also available on the Z71, but is $395 because the parking sensors are already standard.

Compared to full-size Chevy trucks, the Colorado lacks availability of adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring.

The Colorado carries a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

Connectivity

The standard infotainment system features a 7-inch touchcreeen, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, two front USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility.

The LT and above get an 8-inch touchscreen, two rear USB ports, and wi-fi compatibility. The Z71 and ZR2 also get voice recognition, HD radio, and wireless charging.

On the LT, navigation, HD radio, an HD rear vision camera, a 4.2-inch driver information dispaly, and a seven-speaker Bose audio system are bundled together for $1,095. It's only $995 on the Z71 and ZR2.

WT - From $26,395

The WT comes equipped with everyday features like air conditioning, power windows and locks, a 3.5-inch driver information display, carpeting, and 17-inch steel wheels. The vinyl seats are black, the only interior color available on the Colorado. The standard four-way power driver seat is a nice touch.

The WT Convenience Package ($530) adds keyless entry, cruise control, a vehicle alarm, and Chevy's EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate with remote locking.

LT - From $28,895

The LT comes standard with the contents of the WT Convenience Package, plus cloth seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, body-color exterior trim, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.

The LT can get a Convenience Package of its own ($685) with remote start, a sliding rear window with defogger, fog lamps, and heated power side mirrors. Going for Luxury Package (available only on Crew Cab variants) gets you a black leather interior interior with a four-way power passenger seat, power lumbar controls for the front seats, a heated steering wheel, automatic single-zone climate control, and projector-beam headlamps.

Z71 - From $36,695

Along with the V6 as standard, the Z71 gets an off-road suspension and all-terrain tires (on 4WD models) for enhanced performance in the wild. Other standard equipment upgrades include fog lights, heated front seats, remote start, cloth and leatherette seating, automatic climate control, and a 4.2-inch driver information display.

The Z71 Midnight Edition ($2,600) wears black wheels and emblems, 31-inch all-terrain tires, a spray-on bedliner, and all-weather floor liners.

ZR2 - From $42,795

The ZR2 goes farther into the wildness with standard four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case, Multimatic suspension dampers, and electronically locking front and rear differentials. It also gets a 2-inch suspension lift, a 3.5-inch wider track, and multiple underbody skid plates. Leather seats and a four-way power passenger seat are also standard.

Exclusive to the ZR2 is the Bison Package ($5,750) with components supplied by the off-road upfitter AEV. The treatment includes unique bumpers, fender flares, wheels, fog lamps, skid plates, and floor liners.

CarsDirect Tip

The LT remains the best value in the 2021 Chevy Colorado lineup for buyers who want a truck for every occasion. The Z71 and ZR2 are tempting for their capability, but might be harder to live with on a daily basis.
