Trucks are everywhere. Ford has the new Ranger, there’s the Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara, and now Holden has a refresh for its super-sized Colorado. The reinvigorated super-ute is probably the most high-tech truck that you can buy at the moment, with even the base model including a new MyLink entertainment system that includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The new Colorado features fresh styling, mainly centred around the front facade with new headlights and foglights and a slight rework of the dual front grilles bringing it in to line with the more aggressively styled US-only Chevrolet Colorado.
While the cosmetic changes may be relatively minor the new Colorado gets a raft of new tech features including a rear view camera, Holden’s MyLink infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring systems, digital radio, in-built satnav and either a seven- or eight-inch touchscreen depending on the model. Selected models also come with forward collision alert, lane departure warning, front and rear park assist and voice recognition.
Holden has also beefed up the Colorado’s accessories list to include a safari bar, wheel arch flares, 18-inch alloy wheels, all-terrain tyres, and LED driving lights.
Also available will be styling items inspired by the Colorado Xtreme concept vehicle, which was unveiled at the Bangkok motor show in March this year.
