NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado will be all-new and mark the first full redesign of the model since 2015 when it goes on sale next year.

Chevy will offer the new midsize pickup in just one body style this time around, a short bed crew cab, but in five distinct trims.

There’s a WT commercial work truck, a mainstream LT, the Z71 with light off-roading capability, the lifted Trail Boss and the high performance ZR2.

The Colorado borrows its exterior styling theme from the latest full-size Silverado, with slim headlights and a large grille.

Pricing for the Colorado will be announced closer to when deliveries are scheduled to begin in the first half of 2023.

And it’ll be facing some stiff competition when it arrives, as Ford is set to launch an all-new Ranger around the same time.
