The freshened 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, with modest changes to the front end and tailgate, will start at about $4,000 more than its predecessor after Chevy removed the base model from the lineup.
Chevy eliminated the base model because of low sales volume, a spokeswoman said. The 2021 Colorado's starting price climbed to $26,395. That puts it in between the Toyota Tacoma's starting price of $27,145 and the Ford Ranger's $25,605. All prices include shipping.
U.S. sales of the Colorado fell 9.3 percent to 122,304 in 2019, and it faces a tough battle with the resurrected Ranger to remain the No. 2 selling midsize pickup, behind the Tacoma. The Colorado edged the No. 3 Ranger by just 450 sales in the first quarter.
