Iowa Review - 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Overview

Exterior - 2021 Chevrolet Colorado

For now, we only know that the standard wheels on the base model are 17-inch steel wheels, and that's a good indication of something big time to come. Your steel wheels are going to make a more powerful style statement than your regular run of the mill wheels on your average base model. So we already see special things about the Colorado's new build. The raised and blackened hood bump on the Colorado, vented for better aerodynamics, is also another style point it gains. And that huge front grille that's blacked out? And Bold Chevrolet block letters above an intricate fog light design? We're really loving this truck! Many a 2021 Chevrolet Colorado review is going to play up its style (and for good reason).

Interior - 2021 Chevrolet Colorado in Iowa

We'll kick off our Iowa review with a few brief facts that we know for sure about the Colorado's new interior. First up, expect Chevrolet's Infotainment 3 system to shine in every way here. They've updated it with a larger screen, standard CarPlay and Android Auto, and of course, there's wireless device charging for you techies out there who appreciate convenience. Specs on the interior have stated that cargo capacity will be 49.9 cubic feet, more than enough to stow your indoor gear. While nothing official has been announced, we know this is an upscale truck. Its reputation tells us that it will feature genuine leather seating as an option (and standard on higher level trims).

Your Colorado is built to protect and to last! Its advanced high strength steel frame has a steel safety cage for added protection in collision. And with a highly efficient transmission, you don't just get a safer drive; you get a more authoritative drive. You'll always be able to command the power you need to get you through the hardest days of work. We love what Chevy has done to craft the perfect mechanical and powertrain configuration on the Colorado, and we know you're going to love it, too.

Powertrain - Chevrolet Colorado specs in Iowa

The base model engine is a 2.5L engine that gives you a competent 3,500 pound towing capacity. Its 200 horsepower also gives you plenty of ponies to appreciate. However, our favorite engine is the 308 horsepower engine that delivers a 7,000 pound maximum towing capacity. Not as much on horsepower but want more towing capacity? The diesel engine this year gives you 7,700 pounds of maximum towing via 369 lb-ft of torque.

Safety - 2021 Chevrolet Colorado dealer

Our Brad Deery Motors Iowa Review always ends with the most important spec on any vehicle: safety. When you buy a pickup truck, you know you're going to haul heavy payloads and tow heavy items like campers, ATVs, and boats. You've got to have pulling power on your side, but you also need intelligent safety systems like those offered by the Colorado. This year's Colorado serves up the finest safety platform yet, with blind spot monitoring that alerts you to any objects within your blind spots so that you can avoid them. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection is another can't be without feature. When you fail to brake in an emergency, your Colorado can take matters into its own components and adjust braking for you. Lane keeping systems make sure you stay right into your own lane at all times, avoiding collisions that could harm you. We're thrilled with the safety features on the new Colorado and recommend it for safety alone.
