Enhancements Under the Hood: The 2024 Chevrolet Colorado
The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is undergoing some exciting changes as it transitions into the 2024 model year, as revealed through the GM fleet order guide. One of the notable changes revolves around the engine lineup, as Chevrolet has made strategic decisions to enhance the overall driving experience.
In the 2024 Colorado lineup, the 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine remains a standard feature, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The power output of this engine varies depending on the trim level:
- The “Turbo” trim generates a respectable 237 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque, serving as the standard powerplant for the Colorado’s Work Truck (WT) and LT trims.
- Previously known as “Turbo Plus,” the mid-level trim now produces an impressive 310 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. It’s available as an option for the WT and LT trims and comes standard on the Trail Boss and Z71 models.
- The high-performance “Turbo High-Output” trim boasts 310 hp and a robust 430 lb-ft of torque. In the 2024 Colorado, it has been rebranded as “TurboMax” and remains an optional engine choice for the LT, Trail Boss, and Z71 trims while it’s standard on the ZR2.
Moreover, GM Authority reports that current 2023 Colorado owners with the previous “Turbo Plus” engine will have the opportunity to upgrade to the enhanced “TurboMax” power figures later in the year. Chevrolet intends to offer this performance improvement as a dealer-installed accessory, although specific pricing details have yet to be confirmed.
For the upcoming model year (2024), Chevrolet is also enhancing the Colorado’s technology and customization options. Previously, the choice between an eight-inch and 11-inch driver information screen was limited to certain trims, with the larger screen exclusively available on the top-tier ZR2 trim. However, in 2024, all Colorado owners will enjoy the larger 11-inch digital gauge cluster, replacing the eight-inch option. This upgrade opens up more personalization possibilities, including Balanced or Enhanced digital gauge cluster layouts and a choice of three distinct themes.
Additionally, the Advanced Trailering Package will include Blind Zone Steering Assist and Trailering features. Notably, this package will be standard on the ZR2 trim but not on other trims, where Blind Zone Steering Assist without trailering can typically be found in one of the Convenience Packages. Chevrolet is introducing a new Dark Essentials Package featuring Black Bowtie badges for the WT and LT trims. Furthermore, an exciting array of optional off-road accessories will be available, including lighting, side steps, Kicker audio enhancements, and a sports bar for the bed. And let’s not forget the eagerly anticipated Colorado Bison, which is on its way.
With the production of the 2024 Chevy Colorado scheduled for October 30, pricing details are expected to be announced in the near future.
