The Top Tech Features of the 2024 Chevy Colorado

The right tech features can significantly impact what you can do and how easy your life is. So, what tech does the 2024 Chevy Colorado offer? Well, there are numerous features across the different trims of the Chevy Colorado, so it wouldn’t be hard to overlook some of them when browsing the inventory at a nearby Chevy dealer and just focusing on the price.

If you’re curious about what the Chevy Colorado has to offer for the 2024 model year, it’s quite impressive. One of its biggest selling points is the Bison Edition of the ZR2 trim—a trim, I might add, that has been all the rage these last couple of years for Chevy’s trucks. As for the tech, well, the newest Colorado is finely equipped with…

11.3-Inch Touchscreen

Beyond the basic convenience tech—such as power windows, power locks, power front seats, heated seats, and heated steering—there is the infotainment touchscreen. The base screen in the Colorado is not as large as the Silverado 1500’s 13.4-inch HD touchscreen; still, its standard 11.3-inch touchscreen offers a high-definition display on the center console, providing functionality for apps, vehicle health, and navigation. You also get Bluetooth for media streaming, voice controls, and wireless connectivity for your phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

An accompanying 11.0-inch digital driver display comes standard on the 2024 Chevy Colorado, which provides you with basic telemetry and vehicle navigation support. You can personalize the digital driver display based on what information you want, including media playback or relevant drive data. Both the digital driver display and infotainment interface make visibility clear, and the ability to customize these displays adds an extra level of convenience.

Trailering Cameras

A vital aspect of the infotainment suite isn’t just that the Colorado comes with more than 22 inches of screen real estate; it’s how that real estate is used. For instance, the Colorado has ten different camera views for trailering, so you can monitor your trailer from almost every angle. This also includes underbody cameras, which are useful for ensuring your trailer is level and for viewing obstacles when off-road, giving you a view of what’s coming up ahead.

The trailering cameras are matched by the available HD Surround Vision, which uses the same cameras to provide parking assistance or object avoidance. In fact, it uses four of the ten cameras—two on each of the side mirrors and on the front of the grille and rear fascia for a proper bird’s eye view, as well as a split-view of what’s in front of you or behind you. This is neat tech that can serve a number of purposes!

Wi-Fi Hotspot

Ever since normalizing smartphone syncing in 2015, Chevrolet has included another nice tech feature: Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity. This basically allows you to use your own vehicle as a mobile network, enabling you to wirelessly connect up to seven devices to the vehicle’s 4G LTE signal. This isn’t just for convenience’s sake, though, as it plays a useful part in the OnStar and Connected Services suite from GM.

If you get stranded or if you need to contact emergency services, you can use OnStar. The Connected Services feature is useful to have when you’re away from other networks and can’t get good service. Turning the vehicle into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot enables you to stay connected and reach emergency services. The only downside is that you do need a data plan for these features.

StabiliTrak has been utilized in GM vehicles since 1996 and has been mandated for all their vehicles from 2012 onward. It’s an electronically controlled stability management system that employs sensors for traction control and composure. It has been a staple throughout much of the lifespan of the Chevy Colorado and appears again in 2024.

Stability management for pickup trucks—especially those with four-wheel drive—means applying appropriate torque distribution and regulating acceleration and yaw control. This is accomplished with sensors that monitor traction, damping, brakes, and road surfaces. As a result, the software is constantly making micro-adjustments so that you not only have precise control over the vehicle but also have a stable driving environment for towing and hauling.

Thanks to the standard power steering and safety systems like automatic emergency braking, StabiliTrak can monitor your vehicle’s status in real time and feed that data into the adjacent systems in the Chevy Safety Assist suite. Whether on the road or off, StabiliTrak can monitor your direction and stability per lane veering, wheel slippage, traction loss, or misaligned trajectory and make course-correcting measures accordingly.

Chevy Safety Assist

Safety should never be taken for granted. Thus, the Colorado has the aforementioned Chevy Safety Assist suite. This comes standard on all of Chevy’s vehicles and has been so since the 2022 model year. Included is automatic emergency braking, which detects objects in front of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to prevent collisions; front pedestrian braking, which detects if a pedestrian is in front of the vehicle and applies emergency brakes; and lane keeping assistance, to monitor your vehicle’s position and ensure you don’t drift, with lane departure warnings, which give an alert when you are.

You also have active safety technologies like IntelliBeam, which automatically adjusts the brightness of the high beams; following distance indicator, ensuring you don’t collide with someone in front of you; and forward collision alert, which calculates if your current speed and the distance of the object in front of you may result in a collision.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Chevy introduced a slate of advanced safety features for the third-generation Colorado, including the availability of blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alerts, rear cross-traffic braking, HD Surround Vision, and, of course, adaptive cruise control. Cruise control has been popular for a long time, but adaptive cruise control is far smarter and much more enjoyable.

This tech relies on other monitoring systems to automatically adjust the speed and position of your vehicle based on what’s nearby. It will manage your speed in accordance with that of the vehicle ahead of you. Furthermore, you can use it when towing and trailering, bringing added stability and automation to reduce stress on the driver.

Teen Driver Mode

One other important tech feature that comes standard on all GM vehicles is Teen Driver mode. This probably gets talked about a lot whenever Chevy’s safety gets mentioned, but it’s still worth mentioning here because it’s just so satisfying and relieving for those with young drivers.

Teen Driver is tied to the other safety features—the alerts, the awareness, and the assists—and whenever any of these are triggered, Teen Driver mode will make a note of when and how often during a travel session, and it will create a report card for parents so that they can see how well their teen drove. It’s a good learning tool, for sure, and it can help with their driving. Plus, when Teen Driver is enabled, it has pre-drive safety checks to ensure everyone is buckled up before features like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto can be used; it also allows you to put limits on achievable speed and speaker volume.

Stow Flex Tailgate

One of the more underrated features of the 2024 Chevy Colorado is the Stow Flex tailgate, the midsize alternative to the Silverado 1500’s Multi-Flex tailgate. However, instead of having a litany of different inner-gate options, the Colorado has a few nifty storage features. There are also liquid drainage ducts and an external ruler you can use in conjunction with the work surface. It’s a simple yet versatile feature for the 2024 Colorado that I’m sure utility-focused drivers will appreciate.

Savvy Tech for the 2024 Chevy Colorado

Not everyone is into tech-heavy trucks, but as a midsize pickup that consistently sells well, there’s no denying the brilliance of the 2024 Chevy Colorado. What kind of tech features would you like to see in the next outing of the Colorado? Super Cruise? A hybrid powertrain? Magnetorheological dampers? An improved head-up display?
