2012 Holden Colorado pickup truck revealed at 2011 Melbourne Motor Show


General Motors just revealed new 2012 Holden Colorado Crew Cab pickup truck at the 2011 Melbourne Motor Show, which was developed and built in Australia. The Holden Colorado Crew Cab show car is much near production form, and it is what we can expect in the final production model. The 2012 Chevrolet Colorado was first debuted in Bangkok in March of 2011.

The 2012 Holden Colorado Crew Cab got a fresh design of the front fascia, bonnet, bumpers and tailgate. It features strong body lines and stylish LED running lamps in the front bumper, along with 20-inch satin-finish alloy wheels.

“Although this is a show vehicle, the fundamental design and proportions are true to form for the production version of the Colorado hitting Holden showrooms next year,” said Mr. Mike Devereux, Holden Chairman and Managing Director.

The Holden Colorado Crew Cab is powered by a 2.8-liter diesel engine, which is a bit less displacement than the current model. The current-generation model is powered by a 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine producing 160 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. But the 2.8 liter four-cylinder engine is just one of a number of engines that will be offered in the new pickup truck.

As for the interior, the 2012 Holden Colorado Crew Cab will have an option of blue leather seats. Cloth upholstery design will be offered as standard on most production models.

The diesel-powered Holden Colorado goes on sale next year. And really too bad, U.S. customers won’t see this truck anytime soon.
