Chevrolet is rolling out some considerable updates for its Colorado midsize pickup, despite being only a year old. But don’t expect them to be too involving with the exterior and interior aesthetics since the updates are related to the power and drivetrain.

Instead of new visual cues, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado comes with a slightly revised naturally-aspirated V6, while Chevy also made its in-house eight-speed automatic standard, replacing the original car’s six-speed box.

On top of the new motor and transmission, the Colorado comes outfitted from some new package and option bundling.

“Customers made the Colorado an overnight success and it remains one of the industry’s hottest-selling products,” said Anita Burke in the statement, Chevy’s chief engineer for the Colorado project. “That fast success has justified our continued investment in midsize pickups, introducing new features for our customers such as the class-exclusive diesel engine, advanced technologies like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and now a class-leading V6 and eight-speed automatic powertrain combination.”

The revised V6 benefits from an optimized variable valve timing setup for both the intake and exhaust ports, an improved direct fuel injection system, and the addition of GM’s patented Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation. Active Fuel Management was not initially available on the Colorado when t was launched last year and the new engine now produces 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of twist, a very modest, if not negligible, increase from the previous variant’s 305hp and 269 lb-ft.

The updated 2017 Chevrolet Colorado will commence sales later this year at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
