The freshened 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, with modest changes to the front end and tailgate, will start at about $3,500 more than its predecessor after Chevy removed the base model from the lineup.
Chevy eliminated the base model in both Canada and the United States because of low sales volume, spokespeople on both sides of the border said. The Colorado Work Truck is the base model in Canada for the 2021 model year. The base starting price climbed to $29,498, including shipping. That puts it below both the 2020 Toyota Tacoma's starting price of $39,290 and the 2020 Ford Ranger's $32,609. All prices include shipping. However, Toyota and Ford haven’t disclosed pricing for the 2021 model year.
Canadian sales of the Colorado fell 12.8 per cent to 8,165 in 2019. They were down 9.3 per cent to 122,304 in the United States. It faces a tough battle with the resurrected Ranger to remain the No. 2 selling midsize pickup, behind the Tacoma in both countries in 2019. The Colorado edged the No. 3 Ranger by just 450 sales in the first quarter in the United States. With 1,197 sold, the Colorado fell behind the Tacoma and Ranger in Canada during the first quarter.
