The All-New 2023 Chevy Colorado Has Been Spotted

The next-generation 2023 Chevy Colorado is almost here. The midsize pickup truck was recently spotted wrapped in camouflage indicating that Chevrolet will be introducing the next-generation Colorado soon. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy updating its lineup and working on its next EV, the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. The automaker, like many others, has been aiming to produce EVs in an effort to offer non-carbon emitting vehicles. Alongside the Chevy Equinox EV is the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV which has been slated to offer 400 miles of battery range. While Chevrolet has been focused on its EVs, it’s clear that its combustion engine lineup remains a priority. We’ll take a look at the new 2023 Chevy Colorado and see what we can learn.

The All-New 2023 Chevy Colorado Is Coming

The 2023 Chevy Colorado was recently spotted wrapped in camouflage. Thankfully, this camouflage was body-hugging so we can actually speculate as to what new changes the mid-size pickup could arrive with. Spy shots of the wrapped pickup were taken from various angles and based on the photos, it seems that the camouflage Colorado was a Z71 model. This stems from the recovery hooks on the front, the off-road tires, and the higher ride height. This trim is a step down from the highest ZR2 trim, but it still offers high performance and capability. 

From the spy shots, it seems that the new 2023 Chevy Colorado has a refreshed grille. The grille appears with a black finish and has a large crossbar that splits it into a dual setup. A polygon design appears at the sides of the grille and leads toward the center. There also looks to be tape over the grille which may be hiding the specific trim badge. Despite this, we can see a forward-facing camera located in the center of the grille.

Looking at the wheels, it seems the black finish is consistent throughout the rest of the pickup’s body. This lends the new Colorado a sporty but aggressive look. We’re not sure what will be underneath the hood, but the 2022 Chevy Silverado currently has a turbocharged 2.7L engine that’s capable of 310 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. We may see something similar in the 2023 Colorado. As for its rear, the mid-size pickup looked to have a revised quarter panel as well as a new tailgate. Chevrolet has not provided any information about the new 2023 Chevy Colorado, but we can expect it to be something fierce and powerful.

Which 2022 Chevy Equinox Trim is Right for You?

There are a plethora of compact crossovers, but one of the most popular is the 2022 Chevy Equinox. Updated for the new model year, the Chevy Equinox offers consumers a stylish and affordable SUV that brings new features to the table. While Chevrolet has been busy working on the all-electric Chevy Equinox EV, those considering the gasoline version still have the choice of a solid compact SUV. The 2022 Chevy Equinox offers four trims, each offering more than the last. We’ll explore each one and see what consumers can expect. 

2022 Chevy Equinox LS

As the base 2022 Chevy Equinox, the LS serves as the most affordable trim that still offers a lot. Each Equinox trim comes equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder engine capable of 170 horsepower and 203lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet did away with the more powerful 2.0L, but for the 2022 model year, the automaker has updated the compact crossover SUV with a new grille, distinctive headlights, and a new front and rear bumper. These updates provide the Equinox with a more modern look that helps it stand out among competitors. 

The LS trim comes with four-wheel drive although all-wheel drive is available. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Inside the SUV, owners will note a stylish interior with modern tech. The LS features a 7-inch touchscreen as well as a six-speaker audio system. It also has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. For safety, the 2022 Chevy Equinox comes with Chevy Safety Assist which includes forward-collision alerts, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and lane-departure warnings. The LS trim starts at an MSRP of $25,800 (plus destination fee).

2022 Chevy Equinox LT 

The second 2022 Chevy Equinox trim is the LT. Starting at an MSRP of $26,900 (plus destination fee), this trim proves to be the most popular trim. The LT is not much more than the LS, but it offers more features. These include a chrome and body-colored exterior as well as additional driver-assist and convenience features. These features come included with the LS Convenience package and consist of satellite radio, power-adjustable seats, a heated steering wheel, and illuminated sun visors. 

Inside the LT trim, owners will enjoy a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, remote engine start, and a power liftgate. The safety suite also gets blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts. There’s also an additional infotainment package which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, an upgraded navigation system, a high-definition backup camera, and a 120-volt power outlet. 

2022 Chevy Equinox RS

The next tier up for the 2022 Chevy Equinox is the RS trim. This trim adds a sporty aesthetic with 19-inch wheels and a black exterior trim. It starts at an MSRP of $30,100 (plus destination fee) and combines the previous trim’s Confidence and Convenience and Infotainment packages. It also adds more like front and rear park assist with LED taillamps, a Bose premium 7-speaker audio system, and heated driver and passenger seats. Inside, owners will note a unique knob shifter, red stitching, and black upholstery. The RS also features a Hit the Road Package which includes roof-rack cross rails/side rails and molded assist steps.

2022 Chevy Equinox Premier

The last and highest level trim offered with the 2022 Chevy Equinox is the Premier. This trim starts at an MSRP of $31,000 (plus destination fee) and offers the most features out of all the trims. It has a higher quality interior cabin with French stitching along with gloss-black trim on the console. The Premier trim also offers the Hit the Road Package but upgrades the  Confidence and Convenience and Infotainment packages. The trim offers 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, a hands-free power liftgate, and body-color door handles with chrome surround.

Inside the Premier trim, owners will enjoy the Chevy Infotainment 3 Plus system which comes with a 7-speaker Bose premium audio system. The compact crossover also features additional safety features like an HD rear vision camera. There’s also adaptive cruise control and a safety alert seat setting that helps identify potential crashes. Whichever trim consumers choose, each proves rather affordable with the latest in driver-assist and convenience features.

Chevy Malibu Rated Best Midsize Car in J.D Power Initial Quality Study

The Chevy Malibu was recently recognized as one of the best midsize cars by J.D Power. Operating as a leader in consumer behavior, J.D Power utilizes consumer insight and analytical data to better understand consumer sentiment. Each year, the company conducts an Initial Quality Study (IQS) which provides automakers and manufacturers with insight into how they can improve their products. Based on the 2022 IQS, the Chevy Malibu was categorized as the highest ranking midsize car. Other Chevy vehicles that earned high ranks included the Chevy Equinox, Chevy Silverado, and Chevy Corvette. We’ll take a look at the results of J.D Power’s IQS and see how Chevy fared overall against its competitors.

Chevy Malibu Highest Ranked Midsize Car

According to J.D Power’s 2022 Initial Quality Study (IQS), the Chevy Malibu was the highest ranked midsize car. As a brand, Chevrolet did well overall with many of its vehicles ranking high in their respective segments. J.D Power conducts its IQS annually by using responses from customers over a 90-day period. The study utilizes a 223-question survey organized into nine separate categories including: infotainment, features, controls, exterior, driving assistance, interior, powertrain, seats, driving experience, and climate. As a leading data analytics company, J.D Power uses this consumer data to help automakers and manufacturers improve their products.

Scores from J.D Power’s IQS are based on how many problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) consumers encounter. The lower the PP100 score, the better the vehicle quality. Based on J.D Power’s 2022 IQS, the overall automotive industry saw an 11% increase in problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). Chevrolet, however, managed to score fairly well compared to its competitors earning a total PP100 score of 147. This score placed the automaker third in the overall IQS.

One of Chevy’s best-performing vehicles was the Chevy Malibu which managed to beat out the Kia K5 as well as the Nissan Altima. Other Chevy vehicles that earned a good score included the Chevy Corvette which managed to place first in the Premium Sport Car category. The Corvette earned a PP100 score of 101 which was the lowest score out of all vehicles studied. Other Chevy vehicles that performed well included the Chevy Tahoe, Silverado, and Equinox. From this year’s IQS, it’s clear that Chevrolet has continued to maintain its overall quality in the face of industry setbacks.
