What does the 2021 model year bring for the Chevy Colorado pickup truck? This midsize truck with full-size benefits gets a fresh look on the outside thanks to a few new styling details. The base-level model goes away, and now the first trim in the four-trim lineup is the Work Truck (WT). The formidable ZR2 trim ― designed for off-road enthusiasts ― ups its competitive stance with a new, more aggressive-looking front split grille design with front and lower fascias. You’ll also find a purposeful hood plus protection along the truck’s frame should you need it during a challenging trail ride. Learn more about the features offered in each trim here.
