A refresh of the Colorado midsize pickup for 2021 will mean a front end that more closely resembles that of the bigger Silverado, which is a subtle but definite improvement. The off-road-capable ZR2 gets its own grille to differentiate it from the WT, LT and Z71 trims. Returning for 2021 is the Colorado’s trio of engines, consisting of a base 200-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a 300-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 and a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel with 186 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Pricing is expected to begin at $26,400 including destination charges.

The restyled Colorado, above, looks a bit more like the larger Silverado, although the change from the current Colorado, below, is not radical.
