My week with the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss 4WD Crew Cab revealed a vehicle that masterfully bridges the gap between rugged off-road adventure and everyday driving comfort. This iteration of Chevrolet’s mid-size pickup range, particularly the Trail Boss edition, is an embodiment of versatility and robust performance, tailored to meet the demands of both off-road trails and urban landscapes. My personal highlights during my week with The Trail Boss was the rugged exterior and how fun it was to drive. There is a lot to see with the all new Chevy Colorado Trail Boss so lets take a closer look.


Clad in a striking Radiant Red, the Colorado Trail Boss commands attention with its modern and aggressive design. The truck’s bold grille and sturdy stance are complemented by off-road-ready enhancements, including skid plates and a lifted suspension. The 2-inch lift and wide chassis not only enhance its off-road capability but also contribute to its imposing appearance. Fitted with 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tires, the Trail Boss strikes a perfect balance between functionality and style, while slightly sacrificing the turning radius for greater off-road aptitude.

Stepping inside, the Trail Boss offers a cabin space that is unexpectedly upscale for a rugged truck. The spacious Crew Cab configuration ensures ample room, comfortably accommodating passengers in both front and rear seats. The interior design is both practical and stylish, featuring ergonomic seating and an advanced infotainment system. The centerpiece is a class-leading 11.3-inch LCD display, which is intuitive and enhances the overall driving experience with easy-to-use controls and excellent connectivity.

Engine and Transmission

Powering the Trail Boss is a 2.7L Turbo Plus engine, a testament to Chevrolet’s engineering prowess, offering a blend of power and efficiency. This engine, proven in the larger Silverado, delivers remarkable towing capacity – up to 7,700 lbs, an impressive feat for a mid-size truck. Paired with a smooth and responsive transmission system, the Trail Boss provides a driving experience that balances robust power with refined control, suitable for a variety of driving scenarios.

Drive Experience

The driving dynamics of the Colorado Trail Boss are a highlight, offering a multi-faceted experience. On off-road terrains, the truck’s enhanced suspension and chassis setup shine, providing increased ground clearance and stability. The selectable drive modes – including Off-Road, Terrain, and Baja – adapt the truck to various driving conditions, enhancing its versatility. The Off-Road Performance Display, an innovative feature, offers real-time performance monitoring, adding to the safety and enjoyment of off-roading adventures. Overall I enjoyed how fast the truck accelerates on highways and surface streets and this same power can be utilized in towing or off-roading with different terrains. The truck sits high with the 18-inch wheels and all terrain tires so you can see really well above other vehicles. the seats are really comfortable and as a taller driver I found the Colorado to be a good fit for longer drives. the seat and steering have enough positions to find that perfect fit for any driver.


In terms of safety, the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss 4WD Crew Cab is meticulously equipped, reflecting Chevrolet’s commitment to driver and passenger security. The truck features Chevy Safety Assist, a comprehensive suite of advanced safety technologies. This includes IntelliBeam Auto High Beam, which automatically adjusts headlight brightness for optimal visibility. The Following Distance Indicator, though requiring a future software update, is poised to enhance situational awareness on the road. Forward Collision Alert and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning work in tandem to prevent accidents and keep the vehicle on its intended path. Additionally, Automatic Emergency Braking, along with Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking, provides an extra layer of protection in urban settings. Moreover, the Trail Boss includes the Teen Driver system, an innovative feature that promotes safe driving habits for new drivers.


The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss 4WD Crew Cab stands as a robust and versatile contender in the mid-size pickup segment. It  combines the off-road readiness expected from a trail-focused truck with the comfort and technology suited for daily driving. This latest offering from Chevrolet is a testament to their commitment to versatility and innovation, making the Colorado Trail Boss a compelling choice for those who demand a truck that can handle diverse terrains and lifestyles.
