The 2024 Chevrolet Colorado is the second year of this stunning redesign, and it’s ready to continue making its powerful statement in the midsize pickup truck segment. The latest Colorado appeals to buyers who value versatility in Fort Walton Beach, Wright, Crestview, Destin, Navarre, Panama City Beach, and Pensacola with its rugged exterior design, powerful and efficient engine options, and advanced technology features. Whether you need a truck for work or play, the 2024 Colorado offers a versatile and capable package that can handle anything you throw its way.
Compared to some of its larger counterparts, the 2024 Chevrolet Colorado lineup is relatively straightforward, consisting of just five trim levels. However, despite this apparent simplicity, the available trims cover a wide range of capabilities, starting with the no-frills, work-oriented WT (Work Truck), and culminating in the exceptional and highly desirable new ZR2 at the top of the range. The ZR2 is an exceptional vehicle that can provide endless excitement and adventure. Nevertheless, more subdued options exist for configuring your Colorado to your specific needs. The intervening trim levels between the base and the range-topping ZR2, including the LT, Trail Boss, and Z71, offer reasonable incremental steps toward the ultimate off-road capacity of the ZR2 to accommodate a variety of budgets and applications.
A new addition for 2024 is a Bison edition of the Colorado ZR2. The Bison comes loaded with AEV (American Expedition Vehicles) off-road enhancements, enabling even higher performance levels and extreme capability. Bison features include Multimatic front and rear dampers, AEV rear bumper & AEV fender flares, AEV 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels with segment-exclusive 35-inch OD Mud/Terrain tires, an AEV heavy-duty winch-capable front bumper, and much more.
The dizzying array of options and specifications available for many contemporary pickup trucks can be overwhelming. However, in reality, a few key configurations are usually responsible for the vast majority of sales. For instance, the recently redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Colorado is solely obtainable as a crew cab with a short bed and a single engine, which happens to be the most preferred combination among most shoppers. Despite featuring a 2.7-liter turbo-four engine across all five trim levels, the 2024 Colorado offers the engine in three different tunings: Turbo, Turbo Plus, and Turbo High Output. The standard 2.7-liter Turbo produces 237 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 2.7-liter Turbo Plus elevates performance to 310 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. Meanwhile, the 2.7-liter Turbo High Output delivers an extra 40 lb.-ft. of torque for the same horsepower. With a 2.7-liter Turbo, the 2024 Colorado can tow up to 3,500 pounds, but the 310-horsepower and 430-lb.-ft. tuning increases this capacity to an impressively robust 7,700 pounds.
The 2024 Chevrolet Colorado offers up to five distinct drive modes, depending on your chosen specification, to optimize the truck’s performance and capabilities for varying applications and conditions. The available drive modes are Normal, Tow/Haul, Off-Road, Terrain, and Baja. Normal is the default drive mode for everyday on-road driving, while Tow/Haul mode improves transmission shifts, throttle response, and other features to make towing and hauling loads easier and more manageable. For more general driving conditions when the pavement runs out, the Off-Road mode adjusts the traction control and other dynamic performance technologies.
However, if you plan on tackling more challenging off-road environments, Terrain mode is how you want to go. Terrain mode is available in three specific settings. It delivers custom throttle control, brake performance, and other attributes to make challenging low-speed rock crawling more manageable and accessible to non-experts. The exclusive Baja mode, reserved for the ZR2, is where the excitement begins. This exciting mode is for high-speed desert running, with unique throttle control, customized transmission shifts, and other drivetrain control calibrations to handle the most demanding conditions in a hurry.
