2021 Chevy Colorado Tailgate Can Be Retrofitted To 2015-2020 Models
The Chevrolet Colorado gets a mid-cycle refresh for the 2021 model year. With the new face and other aesthetic updates, the mid-size pickup is also a big change in the rear than the current owners from Colorado might want to have for their trucks.
For the Colorado 2021, the American brand abandoned the Golden Bow Tie emblem for a “CHEVROLET” brand hollowed out on the tailgate. A simple but effective touch, putting more emphasis on the brand seen from the back.
GM authority acknowledges this request and asked Chevrolet if the current 2015-2020 Colorado owners could order the new hatchback as a replacement. The response was affirmative.
“If the owner of a 2015-2020 Chevrolet Colorado wants the new 2021 stamped tailgate, they should be able to work with their local Chevrolet service center to order the new tailgate as a replacement part to replace,” said Chris Bonelli of Chevrolet Communications in an exclusive interview with GM authority.
It does come with a little “but” however. Those interested will not be able to order the new tailgate themselves, as it is not listed as a certified accessory. They have to work with the dealer to order the part for them, as Bonelli confirmed with GM authority.
The price of the replacement tailgate has not been released, however. GM Authority thinks it would be the same as the unengraved tailgates, which range from $ 545 to $ 608.67, depending on the presence of the EZ Lift and Lower function.
