Trims, Powertrain, and Performance

The 2024 Chevrolet Colorado is a versatile midsized pickup offered in five trims: WT, LT, Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2. Each is configured as a four-door crew cab with a five-foot cargo bed. Chevy presents the turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with two output levels: Turbo and TurboMax. The Turbo comes standard in the WT and LT and makes 237 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2 get the TurboMax version, which puts out 310 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque; it’s an optional upgrade for the WT and LT. An eight-speed automatic transmission pairs with both engines.

The WT and LT have standard rear-wheel drive, but they’re eligible for the four-wheel drivetrain that’s included with the higher trims. When the Colorado is configured with the TurboMax engine and Advanced Trailering Package, it can pull a maximum of 7,700 pounds. As for fuel economy, the range falls between 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway to 16 city/16 highway.

Amenities of Note

The entry-level WT is well equipped with mostly basic features and a few conveniences, getting remote keyless entry, cloth upholstery, manually adjustable front seats, push-button start, automatic halogen headlights, eight cargo bed tie-down points, a segment-first 11-inch digital gauge cluster, USB ports, and a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat. The LT adds proximity keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a remote locking tailgate, a rear USB charging port, and HVAC vents for the back seat. While the Trail Boss lacks the proximity entry and leather-wrapped steering wheel, it’s set up with these off-road enhancements: an auto-locking rear differential, a two-speed transfer case, black recovery hooks, selectable drive modes (Off-Road, Terrain, Tow/Haul, and Normal), hill descent control, a two-inch factory lift, and all-terrain tires.

The Z71 gains the proximity entry and leather steering wheel absent from the Trail Boss, along with red recovery hooks, LED lights (headlights, fog lights, and taillights), heated side mirrors, combination cloth/synthetic-leather upholstery, two 120V power outlets, an extra rear USB charging port, and a manual-sliding rear window with a defogger.

In addition to being taller and wider than the other Colorado trims, the ZR2 is reinforced with a stronger alternator (220 amps compared to 170 amps with the other trims), full-locking differentials, an integrated trailer brake controller, off-road rocker protectors, mud-terrain tires, DSSV Multimatic suspension dampers, a 3-inch factory lift, and special off-road bumpers. It also has Chevy’s patented EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate with the first-in-class StowFlex storage compartment, plus a spray-on bedliner, remote start, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an extra drive mode called Baja (which optimizes performance on sandy terrain), and an in-vehicle trailering app. It’s eligible for a bed-mounted sports bar, too.

Many of those advanced amenities can be ordered in the lower trims through numerous upgrade packages. Other add-ons of note include a heated steering wheel, full leather upholstery, position memory settings, wireless phone charging, and ventilated front seats.

Technology for Safety and Infotainment

The Chevy Safety Assist suite of active driving aids is standard across all trims, equipping each with automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian and bicyclist braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Every trim is also eligible to add rear cross-traffic braking, rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, and blind-zone steering assist. Trailering assist is available for the ZR2.

No matter which ’24 Colorado trim you choose, you’ll get a Google built-in infotainment system with an 11.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio, voice recognition, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a six-speaker audio system.

Available Upgrades

The options for amplifying your ’24 Colorado’s equipment are practically endless. As mentioned in the introduction, the new Bison Edition for the ZR2 will provide an artillery of off-road essentials, including Multimatic front and rear jounce control dampers, a heavy-duty winch, 35-inch OD Mud-Terrain tires, durable front and rear bumpers, Boron steel skid plates offering best-in-class underbody protection, and power-locking differentials. The Bison Edition also boasts class-best approach, departure, and breakover angles, as well as 12.2 inches of segment-dominating ground clearance.

Aside from that, the Flex Utility Package for the Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2 supplies additional cargo tie-down rings, re-configurable bed rails, and off-road splash guards. The Safety Package can bolster every trim with rear cross-traffic braking, blind-zone steering assist, and rear parking sensors (as well as heated side mirrors when ordered in the case of the WT, LT, and Trail Boss). Finally, each trim qualifies for the Technology Package, which contains a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, rear pedestrian detection, and a tailgate locking cylinder.
