Chevrolet Colorado Could Get A “Baja Mode” According to Rumours

A “Baja Mode” for the Chevrolet Colorado could indicate an even more serious off-road version than the ZR2.


  • Might be offered following the launch of the new 2021 Colorado.

  • The mode could include hardware and software upgrades as well as a new suspension.


Midsize trucks are growing in numbers of late and while it’s not exactly a crowded segment, the time to stand out in the crowd has arrived. GM’s done a commendable job with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Going forward, it might become even more off-road capable.

Rumour has it that, according to Motor1.com, the Chevrolet Colorado may gain a “Baja Mode” sometime after the release of the new 2021 Colorado. There’s little more to share about when we might expect this new drive mode – it could be for 2022 or possibly for the next-generation Colorado a few years later.

Regardless, a “Baja Mode” could involve hardware and software upgrades, from traction and stability control settings, as well as a new suspension. It’s unknown if it will be part of a trim (a new Bison package for example) or as a standalone option with the ZR2. As for the next Colorado, it could be powered by GM’s 2.7-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

In these times where all things off-road are cool, a “Baja Mode” would certainly fit in nicely.
