Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept revealed in Argentina


Chevrolet recently debuted the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Colorado concept in Bangkok, which will be available in Thailand and other nations besides the U.S. And now, Chevrolet just revealed another concept version called the Chevrolet Colorado Rally in Argentina. What gives? No love for the good ol’ U.S. of A?

The Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept was revealed at the Buenos Aires International Motor Show, which shows an aggressive design with bold body styling. The Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept pick-up has a double cabin with serious visual cues to handle off-road driving. It is equipped with a four-wheel drive system, 18-inch double-ended polished aluminum rims wrapped in 305/60 R18 BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. The windows are made of acrylic to provide greater protection from side impacts and as the same time provide air circulation with air holes. In addition, roll bars are aligned strategically to ensure maximum protection in case of a roll-over.

The Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept is powered by a 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine that delivers exceptional torque. Although Chevrolet didn’t publish the numbers, but we assume it has about 360 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque.

“The Concept Rally Colorado, once again demonstrates that the DNA of competition is in the blood of Chevrolet. One of these characteristics Concept reaffirms our commitment to the future of the brand and also part of the centennial celebration of Chevrolet around the world, “said Jaime Ardila, president of GM South America.

Much like the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Colorado concept, the Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept will less likely be available in the U.S.
