The Colorado has always been the brand’s mid-size truck. And after about seven years, it’s finally getting a major update. The 2023 Colorado comes with a number of changes, including the fact that it’s powered by a single four-cylinder engine. One of the most exciting parts of this pickup truck might be the trim. And Chevy made an interesting tweak to help with off-road use.
What is the Chevy Colorado Trail Boss?
The 2023 Colorado Trail Boss is meant to be off-road, and it’s one of four being built with that in mind. Much like the base version of this minivan, it’s powered by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, but it offers more power. With trim, you’ll get 310 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.
Owners are likely to appreciate it.
Trail Boss may be the best 2023 Chevy Colorado
In terms of the best Chevy Colorado, accordingly, is Trail Boss. Of course, the best Colorado will be the one that fits your particular budget and lifestyle. If you plan to drive your truck off-road, the Trail Boss is cheaper than the ZR2. Therefore, it can be an affordable way to get access to a mid-size 4×4 truck.
The Trail Boss may lack things like a front and rear differential lock, but it’s about $10,000 cheaper than the Colorado ZR2 that comes with those.
The other three trims are the WT, LT and Z71. The Trail Boss sits between the Z71 and the LT, which puts it in the middle of the lineup. And even though it’s cheaper than the Z71, you actually get 1.5 inches of front suspension travel with the Trail Boss.
In the video above, you can see that this Chevy truck has legitimate off-road chops. And it’s hard not to see these off-road variants take on things like the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.
