Holden taking 2017 Colorado to accessory extremes

Holden is launching its heavily revised and upgraded 2017 Colorado Ute during tonights State of Origin game between Queensland and New South Wales in Sydney, Australia at ANZ Stadium.

The 2017 Colorado has new front styling and a new interior, more active safety technology, and a greater range of factory accessories inspired by the Colorado Xtreme concept vehicle .

As part of the equipment upgrade, there is a new forward facing camera with active safety features such as forward collision alert and lane departure warning.

For low speed manoeuvres, drivers are assisted by front and rear park assist on selected vehicles and there is a rear view camera across the range.

Inside its new interior there is an upgraded Holden MyLink infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity delivered through a colour touchscreen housed in the Colorado’s centre stack.

The new Colorado infotainment system also offers Digital (DAB+) radio, embedded satellite navigation and voice recognition. It will also be the only vehicle in the segment to offer remote window activation, which Holden says will be appreciated by users in hot climates as found in Australia and New Zealand.

Holden has also upped the ante to provide more genuine accessories for the 2017 Colorado and these include bull bars, safari bar, bash plates, extended rail sports bars, steel rear step, tubular steel side steps, LED driving lights, fender flares, nudge bar, snorkel, 18-inch alloy wheels, and all terrain tyres.

Holden New Zealand managing director Kristian Aquilina says the redesigned Colorado is a key vehicle in Holden’s future product portfolio and its new styling, improved driveability and technology content are sure to be a hit with customers.

“Colorado has resonated well with customers in a segment that has more than doubled in sales in the last ten years, and we’re confident the new 2017 Colorado will build on this and redefine customer expectations,” says Aquilina.

Holden New Zealand says the new 2017 Colorado will be available in dealerships in September.
