The Chevy Colorado is getting three new color options as part of its 2019 update.
Another year, another tiny update to satisfy those enthusiasts that are expecting bigger and better things every year, no matter what vehicle. The Chevy Colorado is no exception, although the 2019 update actually brings quite a few new toys to the light pickup’s arsenal.
But first, and most obviously, there are three brand new color options for 2019: Crush, Pacific Blue Metallic, and Shadow Gray Metallic. Crush is obviously named after the soft drink since it’s a brilliant shade of orange, while the others are a little more self-explanatory.
According to GM Authority, Crush is a $395 option that is available with both of the Colorado’s interior color options, which are Jet Black with either leather or less leather.
Sources are saying that the new color options have already been sent from GM’s Wentzville plant and are expected to be on showroom floors within the next 2 weeks.
Chevy’s Colorado is expected to receive a mid-cycle update in 2020, but still gets more than just a few new paint jobs for 2019. The ZR2 gets a new set of black colored logos, while all models get a new set of 18-inch wheels.

There is a new third generation of Chevy Infotainment System, which includes both USB-A and USB-C ports as well as an SD card for carrying around your tunes. Since pickups occasionally wander off the beaten path, it’s important to have music options that don’t rely on cell phone reception.
A second in-cabin microphone on the passenger side allows passengers to join in on phone calls, while a new heated steering wheel will keep the driver’s hands warm on the Z71 and ZR2 models. It’s an available option on the LT trim.
Backing up has never been easier on the Colorado. The 2019 model gets a new HD rearview camera for the LT, Z71 and ZR2 trims along with an ultrasonic rear sensor that is standard on Z71 and ZR2 trims (but an available extra on WT and LT trims).
We’re still waiting on official word for the ZR2 Bison trim, which is due out later this year. It will include a whole bunch of standard off-road equipment, with an expected snorkel and set of mud-terrain tires.
