2018 Chevrolet Colorado Trims

The Colorado already received a few notable changes last year for the 2017 model year. These included an upgraded V6 that brought more horsepower and torque, and was more efficient at the same time, thanks to cylinder deactivation technology. A new eight-speed auto transmission joined the list of optional features, as did a controller to assist with trailer-braking for safer hauls. The infotainment system got a state of the art overhaul, as did some cosmetic features like exterior paint colors, and interior and exterior trim pieces. Upgraded seats provided more comfort for drivers, and the Teen Driver safety package gave countless parents additional peace of mind.

The 2018 Colorado builds upon those enhancements even more. There is an optional special edition package in honor of Chevy’s 100 years in the business of making next-level driving machines. The anniversary edition includes several exclusive features to help the truck look every bit as impressive as it really is. You’ll spot the attention to detail everywhere from the wheels to the bedliner to the grill.

Even without the 100th year celebration package, you’ll notice some noteworthy improvements. Towing is easier than ever thanks to Active Tow technology and an alignment system that guides reversing drivers to their trailers. Heated exterior mirrors aren’t often necessary in Arizona, but they can come in handy on long trips up north or into the mountains.

Of course, all of this comes with Chevy’s legendary reliability and durability. No matter where you take this truck or what you demand of it, you can count on it to get the job done and leave you completely satisfied.
