Buyers who don’t want a full-size truck but still want the power to tow and haul loads should take a look at the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. With ample interior space to keep the driver and passengers comfortable, the Colorado is the right choice for many truck buyers at dealerships like the Prescott Valley Chevrolet dealer. Another bonus: the Chevrolet Colorado is more economically priced than a full-size model.
Chevrolet Colorado Trim Levels
The Colorado can be purchased in a configuration for every need, from a bare-bones work truck to a potent off-road machine. The 2021 Colorado comes in extended-cab and crew-cab configurations, as well as two cargo box sizes. According to the Prescott Valley Chevrolet dealership, there are four trim levels to choose from: Work Truck (WT), LT, Z71 and ZR2.
The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Most trim levels offer a choice of two available engines: a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a turbocharged 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 181 hp and 369 lb-ft, teamed to a six-speed automatic. Most Colorado models get standard rear-wheel drive and available four-wheel drive.
