The Best Chevy Colorado Accessories
The Chevy Colorado, also badged as the GMC Canyon, began as a compact pickup in 2004, but has since grown to be a very popular mid-sized truck. Chevrolet has consistently sold more than 100,000 units per year since 2015, with peak sales topping 168,000+ in 2018. With so many on the road today, there is a thriving market for Chevy Colorado accessories.
Today, we will be looking at some of the most popular Chevy Colorado accessories 2021 and early 2022 have had to offer. We’ll try to be somewhat brand-agnostic and look at a variety of different manufacturers, but we’ll highlight more than a few from DECKED. Call it bias. We’re biased. We make good stuff.
Now let’s take a closer look at some of the best Chevy Colorado accessories you can buy today:
2021 Chevy Colorado Accessories
The DECKED Drawer System – The Perfect Mix Of Mobile Secure Storage and Bed Protection
The DECKED Drawer System might be one of the best 2021 Chevy Colorado aftermarket accessories going, even if we do say so ourselves. At first all you see is the bed protector, but look deeper. Beneath that sturdy, resilient resin deck you’ll find not just two utility drawers (each of which can each hold up to 1,000 pounds of equipment), but also a pair of “ammo box” removable storage compartments.
The DECKED Drawer System is completely weatherproof. It allows you to transport tools, sporting gear, or other supplies in safety while keeping your gear easily accessible, as the drawers open at waist height. It is also incredibly secure. Both drawers lock independently, and you cannot even access those locks before unlocking and lowering the tailgate.
DECKED’s tool and cargo solution even does away with ugly tonneau covers forever. It improves the aerodynamics of your Chevy Colorado dramatically without interfering with the use of the bed.
Better still, the DECKED Drawer System mounts above the wheel wells. This gives you back the entire length and width of the bed, and makes loading/unloading heavy cargo easier than ever.
Finally, the DECKED Drawer System is made of easily and economically recyclable material. It includes post-recycled materials straight from our Ohio factory. Of course, it also features plenty of steel and aluminum reinforcement to help carry any load you need it to.
NRG Innovations Aluminum Pedal Pad Set
There is nothing really wrong with the factory stock pedals that come with the 2021 Chevy Colorado, but they lack “zing.” NRG Innovations offers a complete aluminum pedal set with non-slip rubber inserts in each that can add a lot to the look and feel of a custom interior. Each is trimmed in carbon fiber and uses NRG’s “New Clamping System” which promises increases in both efficiency and durability.
2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Accessories
The DECKED D-Box Tool Box
The DECKED D-Box Tool Box is a sturdy and adaptable portable tool box. It is made of a high-density plastic resin, which is superior to anything else on the market in terms of resilience and resistance to damage. This is the material that has made DECKED famous, giving our products superior recycling properties as well as top-notch physical performance.
The D-Box’s waterproof seal will keep the wind, rain, and damp out of whatever is inside, making it the perfect container for tools, gear, or even a picnic. It’s removable internal dividers to help you organize and manage what you carry. We should also mention that although the DECKED D-Box is completely self-contained, it works perfectly as part of the DECKED Drawer System or DECKED Tool Box tool organization systems.
Stealth Fighter Front Bumper
If you want to make an impression with your 2021 Chevy Colorado ZR2 accessories, why not start at the first part of the vehicle most people see? The Stealth Fighter front bumper has a hammer black powder coat finish with satin black powder coat accents. It features a winch mount as well as mounts for round 6-inch lights and your choice of 8 cube lights or a 30-inch light bar.
This product works with both 2021 and 2022 Chevy Colorado ZR2s.
2021 Chevy Colorado ZR1 Accessories
The DECKED Crossbox Toolbox
The DECKED Crossbox Toolbox is a handy little tool box even when not used with the DECKED Tool Box or DECKED Drawer System tool organization ecosystems. Made of high-impact, UV-resistant recyclable plastic, this small, portable tool box is perfect to fit behind the seat of any pickup, or to keep in a household closet.
The DECKED Crossbox is light and extremely durable, and each one that leaves our factory in Defiance, Ohio already contains plenty of recycled materials.
Westin Pro Traxx Oval Nerf Bars
Looking to add both flair and utility to the sides of your Chevy Colorado ZR1? Westin’s Pro Traxx Nerf bars are available with 4-inch, 5-inch, or massive 6-inch oval tubes, all with attractive 30-degree bends at the tips. They mount easily with no drilling, and come with mounting brackets designed for use with the ZR1 specifically.
You can choose between mild steel with a black powder coat, or polished stainless steel. The powder-coat version has a 3-year warranty, and the more expensive stainless model is warrantied for life.
2019 Chevy Colorado Accessories
The DECKED Tool Box – Stylish And Secure Tool and Gear Storage
The DECKED Tool Box mounts behind the cab of almost any pick-up or service-body truck, and is one of the most useful 2019 Chevy Colorado accessories you could ask for.
The DECKED Tool Box is a secure and waterproof way to transport anything you need to carry. This includes tools and heavy equipment, but the DECKED Tool Box is just as suitable for moving around camping supplies or sporting/hunting gear. You can even leave expensive or difficult to replace gear in it overnight, because the lock is armored against intrusion.
Just like all of our fine DECKED products, the DECKED tool box used our unique high density plastic resin, along with steel and aluminum reinforcing members.

How Environmentally Friendly Are Your Chevy Colorado Accessories?
Perhaps we should spend more time thinking about the ecological and climate implications of our buying choices. Chevy Colorado accessories, like anything else, can be made from a wide range of materials, and each has its own type of environmental impact. We know that steel, aluminum, and other metals can be recycled easily, but what about the plastics and synthetic materials that make up your after-market parts?
This is something we take seriously at DECKED, and we knew from the very beginning that we’d have to develop some really impressive plastics if we wanted to make accessories that can be displayed proudly these days. We know that it is important to protect our planet, and that our customers would want DECKED’s carbon footprint to be as small as possible. We are proud to source our materials from suppliers who feel the same way.
Of course, we made our unique blend of plastic resins strong, resilient, and durable, but we also made sure it was both easy and economical to recycle. In fact, all of the Chevy Colorado accessories we sell contain a great deal of recycled material already.
The Chevy Colorado Line
The Chevy Colorado was introduced in 2004 as the successor to the Chevy S-10, the GMC Sonoma, and the GMC S-15. Note that these were all compact pickups, much smaller than the respectably mod-sized Chevy Colorados and GMC Canyons of today.
The first generation of Chevy Colorado models were designed by GM North America, GM Brazil, and Isuzu. In fact, Isuzu sold its version first, beginning in 2002. They were later sold in North America as the Isuzu i-Series. This North American Isuzu variant was essentially a rebranded twin of the Colorado and Canyon, unlike Isuzu’s international version which featured a unique powertrain, styling, and equipment set. These were essentially new versions of the GMT-355. The North American version was manufactured in GM’s Shreveport facility. International versions were built in Thailand.
The second generation of Chevy Colorados was revealed in 2011 at the Bangkok International Motor Show and Frankfurt Motor Show. In the end, it was offered as a production model with single, extended, and crew cab versions, in both 4WD and 2WD variants. These were all decidedly midsized trucks, and the line is still a midsized one ten years later.
The Colorado ZR2 is an off-road performance variant first seen in 2016. It featured a few differences from the standard ZR1 models, including Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve Dampers, a 2-inch lift, a 3½ inch wider track, longer control arms, redesigned bumpers, wider fender flares, and aluminum skid plates. They also came standard with 31" Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires.
The military variant, the Infantry Squad Vehicle, has been adopted by the US Army. 90% of the vehicle is composed of off-the-shelf commercial Chevy Colorado ZR2 components.
