2020 Chevy Colorado Diesel: Review

Latest reports suggest that the popular compact truck is about to carry on int the same way, without more important changes. That means that the 2020 Chevy Colorado Diesel will remain the same too. GM is currently the only company on the market that comes with an oil-burner in the offer. However, this will change soon, as rivals like Gladiator, Tacoma and Ranger are about to come with diesel engines as well.

Despite that the competition will become tougher, the upcoming model won’t feature too many changes. The overall design is about to remain the same and the best we could see is a couple of new standard features to each trim level.

In terms of base design characteristics, the next-year model won’t feature any particular change. We will see a design that is essentially the same as on the initial model, which has been around since 2012. The overall layout is typically truckish and that can bee seen in some many ways. For example, the ride is pretty stiff, while the overall interior quality isn’t something we could call stylish or upscale.

Moreover, most rivals feature much better interiors. Still, that doesn’t bother Chevrolet at all, considering that this model is a class-leader in segments that are far more important for a truck. For example. This model is a class leader when it comes to max towing capacity.

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind about this version is the engine. Of course, the upcoming models will continue with a familiar 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel. It delivers 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. With such amount of power, it’s not strange that this truck isn’t particularly fast.

On the other side, it is a perfectly working machine. For example, a max towing capacity goes around 7.700 pounds, which are the class-leading numbers for truck.


When it comes to configurations, the 2020 Chevy Colorado Diesel will remain pretty much the same. Therefore, count on two body styles (Extended and Crew Cab), two bed sizes and four trims levels.

As oil-burner is not available is Base trim, the offer starts with the Work Truck version. It includes standard features like 16-inch steel wheels, vinyl upholstery, air conditioning, 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB ports, six-speaker sound system etc. The LT trim comes with a couple of additions, such as 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio etc.

The Z71 is a very well-equipped truck. It includes all above and also comes standard with things like heated front seats, automatic climate control, and forward collision and lane departure warning systems, navigation, premium audio system etc.

Finally, count on a 2020 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Diesel version. This off-roader was originally launched with a V6 engine only, but GM engineers realized the off-road potential of diesel engine, due to an impressive amount of torque. This version comes with a lot of mechanical upgrades. Some of the highlights are locking rear differential, raised suspension with special dampers, bigger all-terrain tires, fender flares, front, and rear bumpers with improved approach and departure angles, a spray-in bed liner etc. Also, there are several visual upgrades.
