2012 Holden Colorado arrives in Australia

Holden Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado will be manufactured and sold by General Motors in the United States while Holden’s version will hit the dealerships in Australia in the middle of this year. This truck has been previewed last year during the Melbourne Auto Show while the vehicle you see in these photos is the production version. Aside from the sporty mirrors and the larger alloy wheels of the concept, this production model looks virtually the same and it is excellent, for a truck…

Holden Colorado

If you live in Australia you will be able to get the Holden Colorado in one of the following three body styles: single cab, space cab and crew cab. Under the hood it can have one of the two all-new 4-cylinder turbo diesel engines: a 2.5-liter DOHC with 118 hp (110 kW) and a beefier 2.8-liter DOHC with 174 hp (130 kW).

The smaller engine is linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox and offers a towing capacity of 3 tons, while the bigger power unit is mated only with a 6-speed automatic transmission and provides a towing capacity of up to 3.5 tons.
