While the Colorado received a bold new look when it debuts with the 2015 model, the new 2016 Chevy Colorado brings some unique exterior enhancements, particularly on the new ZR2 edition. You can find exterior add-ons like new headlights that feature xenon and LED technology and a wide honeycomb grille that provides improved airflow to the engine.
The bumpers have also been trimmed to allow for better angles when playing or working off-road, and the spare tire has been relocated to the truck bed to improve overall ground clearance. In addition, King shock absorbers improve handling and give drivers more flexibility when navigating obstacles. Larger wheel cut-outs can also better accommodate larger 18-inch off-road tires and alloy wheels.
The 2016 Chevy Colorado features a fuel-efficient 2.5L I-4 engine with variable valve timing that can produce 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6L V6 engine is still available as well, producing 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque with a maximum towing capacity of 7,000 pounds when properly equipped.
Crew cab LT and Z71 trims of the new Colorado a the 2.8L 4-cylinder Duramax diesel engine that produces 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive versions of this truck are capable of a towing capacity on par with the gasoline V6 models.
Interior Design and Features
The 2016 Chevy Colorado redesign continues to offer Albany, Troy, and Schenectady drivers many of the same features of the recently redesigned pickup. Features like dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, and leather upholstery are now available as potential upgrades on every trim.
Drivers accustomed to spending long hours in their truck will also be pleased to note that the new 2016 version offers more comfortable seats with better lateral support.
Schedule Test Drive
Chevy has announced the addition of the “Midnight Edition” trim package exclusively for the Colorado’s LT trim, which includes a painted grille and emblem, 18-inch aluminum wheels, spray in bed liner, tonneau cover, and an exterior color package in the darkest midnight black.
The 2016 Chevy Colorado also has a Z71 Trail Boss trim that will feature the Z71 off-road suspension package, more aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec all-terrain tires, a sport bar with LED lighting, bolder fender flares, and tubular assist steps.
Both packages can be found on extended and crew cab configurations in 2WD and 4WD. Drivers can pair them with the 2.5L, the 3.6L, or the Duramax engine for optimal performance ratings.
Advanced Safety Technologies
The Colorado continues to offer a rearview camera and dash-mounted monitor as well as many other award-winning features, such as:
StabiliTrak – Activates when sensors register a difference between the driver’s intended path and the vehicle’s direction of travel, applying the brakes to the necessary wheels to maintain course.
Forward Collision Alert – An amber light will indicate if the distance between your Colorado and the approaching vehicle has suddenly closed. A red light will flash if the Colorado is driving too closely behind another car.
Lane Departure Warning – Provides a visual alert if the vehicle changes lanes without signaling at speeds over 35 mph.

The Car Connection: “It's a real rival for full-size truck buyers in its top versions, punching far above its class with full-size towing and hauling capacity, not to mention horsepower.”
