The interior of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is awesome for an off-road beast
The The pickup truck market is one of the largest and fiercest segments in the United States, with many suitors competing against each other. Pickups have come a long way over the past decade. Of be just a workhorse for a luxury family vehicle, pickup trucks have proven to be the most popular segment in the United States. While there are a bunch of companies with great pickups like Ford, Toyota, GMC and others, Chevrolet has been one of the strongest players out there and has a decent line of pickups that the buyers can choose according to their needs.
The Chevy The Colorado is a household name among pickup trucks and has achieved great results since replacing the Chevrolet S10 in 2004. However, the second generation Colorado began to fall behind its rivals due to its design and of its older powertrain.
Finally, this year Chevrolet introduced the revamped Colorado pickup, and they designed the entire truck from the ground up. The exterior and interior have been redesigned, and it now looks more modern and sleeker. Let’s take a closer look at its interior and what’s new below.
The new 2023 Chevrolet Colorado offers a robust and elegant interior
The Colorado has always been a capable workhorse in the market, and it has appeased buyers since hitting the market. However, the weather has changed. In fact, truck culture has changed over the past five to six years, and buyers now want a truck with not only rugged capabilities, but also a car that doubles as a family car. This is where Chevy’s Colorado had fallen behind in previous years, despite being a capable machine. It did well in offering power and towing goods, but fell behind in offering a decent cabin like its closest rivals.
This year Chevy decided to redesign the Colorado from the ground up, and we have to say the Colorado was long overdue for this makeover. The redesigned cabin is now fantastic and more spacious. The quality of the materials shows a drastic improvement. They are durable, provide a pleasant feel and manage to provide an attractive personality. The dashboard design feels sturdy, but we also found it to be quite modern, but not elegant. Most cabin parts are adorned with soft-touch materials, and they look and feel premium. In addition, the dashboard and door trims are decorated with accent red or yellow stitching, which gives a sporty look.
The dashboard looks more modern. Although it primarily incorporates the widescreen screen design, Chevy opted to keep the screen split for better accessibility and functionality. Inside, the driver now has an 8 or 11-inch digital instrument panel and an 11.3-inch multimedia touchscreen in the center of the dashboard. Below, the dashboard offers numerous control buttons and two rotary knobs, ergonomically arranged and easy to understand. Additionally, the dashboard of the flagship ZR2 is decorated with unique Artemis trim and yellow stitching, giving it a sportier and more upscale look.
The interior of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado offers enough space and comfort
Along with the redesigned cabin, Chevrolet also outfitted the Colorado cabin with a set of new seats. The 2023 Colorado will only be available as a crew cab model, and all models will offer seating for five passengers. Just like previous years, the front end will feature a pair of bucket seats, but now the front seats offer 40.3 inches of headroom and 45.2 inches of legroom as well as additional padding for a extended comfort during long working hours. The rear seats will offer 38.2 inches of headroom and 34.7 inches of legroom. Therefore, the Colorado will provide enough space and comfort even in the back.
Lower models such as the WT, LT and the new Trail Boss model will feature premium cloth seats, while higher models such as the Z71, ZR2 and ZR2 Boss will come standard with perforated leather seats. While we don’t know what features Chevy will include in the front seats, we assume the LT and Trail Boss will have heated seats. Top models, like the Z71 and ZR8, will come standard with power-adjustable front seats with heating and cooling functions, thigh and lumbar support, as well as memory settings.
The 2023 Colorado cabin has plenty of features and tech
With the introduction of the new model, Chevrolet ensured that its Colorado would not fall behind its competitors until the next redesign. Therefore, he stuffed the cabin of the Colorado with plenty of comfort and technology, which complements his premium cabin nicely.
Starting with the seats, lower Colorado models like the WT and LT will feature premium cloth seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a fold-down rear bench seat. Top Trail Boss and Z71 models are expected to come standard with power-adjustable front seats with heated features, lumbar and thigh support, and leather seats. The flagship version of the ZR8 will offer power front seats with heating and cooling, perforated leather seats and front seats with memory settings as standard equipment.
Apart from these, the cabin is equipped with a long list of comforts such as leather and heated multifunction steering wheel; a new customizable 8- or 11-inch all-digital instrument cluster; single-zone automatic climate control; LED mood lighting; And much more. On top of that, an all-new center console, a dual-zone climate control system with rear vents and climate control, an extra-wide wireless phone charger and a panoramic sunroof will also be offered.
For entertainment, Chevrolet has equipped the cabin of the new Colorado with an all-new infotainment system. Whichever version you buy, all models now feature a large 11.3-inch diagonal Full HD touchscreen as well as Google’s new interface.
