Important news comes to the Chevrolet Colorado for its year/model 2021, which goes beyond a simple visual adjustment. A new multimedia center, 4G Wi-Fi modem, and security equipment reinforcements will be part of the offer.
In USA, we know it as Chevrolet Colorado, but its international name is S10. It is the medium-size pick-up that GM produces in Brazil to compete with models such as Toyota Hilux and Nissan Frontier, whose updates are anticipated with a notable update that debuted yesterday in the neighboring country, with a renewed design and technological improvements…
In addition to an obvious renovation in its front grille and other design details, the brand especially highlights the incorporation of the 4G Wi-Fi modem, which allows you to have Internet during all the trips in this car. Remember that this device is already present in the Onix Turbo for sale in USA.
Security was not left behind, which received an important update in its driving aids, improving existing ones and adding new functions; nor the mechanics, with a new turbo for the 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine. So, since there are several things to see, let’s get into details.
Chevrolet Colorado 2021 Design
In the new Chevrolet Colorado range, the front grill varies depending on the version. While the conventional models (Advantage, LS, LT, and LTZ) have horizontal chrome slats and the brand logo in the center, the high-end High Country variant adopts a dark front with the name “Chevrolet” in high relief, grilles type honeycomb, and logo on the lower right side.
Of course, this implied a renovation for the bumper in all versions, placing the explorer lights in a higher position that favors their protection and lighting in difficult conditions. This also improved the angle of attack, going from 27 to 29 degrees in the new model.
On the side of the Colorado High Country, there are also new 18-inch sports wheels in black. There is also a body extension to line up the platter, which in turn reaches 1,329 liters of capacity, now with a shock absorber to open the tailgate on all versions.
There were several safety reinforcements applied to the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, which now has a structure of up to 20% stronger. It already had assists such as stability and traction controls, involuntary lane departure alert, and forward collision alert, but now new functions are added.
The most prominent of these is the autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, which works between 8 and 80 km / h stopping the vehicle automatically when identifying a situation of a possible collision with a vehicle or pedestrian. 6 airbags are now also included across the range.
Finally, the new Colorado has trailer sway control and a high definition reverse camera with hitch function, guidelines, and zoom, with the possibility of activation during the trip to verify the situation of the trailer.
As well as the Onix Turbo, which was recently announced in USA as the “first connected car in the country,” the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado receives the new MyLink 3 multimedia center with a built-in 4G Wi-Fi modem. This device allows you to connect to the internet with a satellite signal 12 times stronger than that of a smartphone.
But the thing does not stop there, because there is also connectivity through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as remote updates (Over the Air) for the electronic systems of the truck, and the management of the status of the same through the application mobile MyChevrole t, which can notify the user of any news via text message via WhatsApp.
On the other hand, the supply of engines remains the same. As entry to the range is the 2.5-liter gasoline engine, 197 horsepower, and 258 Nm. On the other hand is the 2.8 liter Turbo Diesel, 200 horses, and 500 Nm, now with a new Turbo that reduces ‘lag’ and improves fuel consumption. They can be linked to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, with 4 × 2 or 4 × 4 tractions.Price
