Holden has announced recommended retail pricing for the new-generation Colorado model range ahead of the light truck’s local launch in the second half of this year.
Holden Colorado will range from $38,400 for the DX 4×2 Single Cab, powered by a 2.5-litre turbo diesel engine with manual transmission, to $61,900 for the top-of-the-range 2.8 litre diesel LTZ Colorado 4×4 Crew Cab with automatic transmission.
The new high-riding Colorado will be sold in three body styles, Single Cab, Space Cab and the family-friendly Crew Cab, and in a selection of four models – DX, LX, LT and LTZ.
All Colorado models powered by the 132kW 2.8-litre diesel powertrain will benefit from a classleading towing capacity of 3.5-tonne, while the new 4×2 DX Single Cab featuring Holden’s 110kW 2.5-litre turbo diesel engine will have an impressive three-tonne towing
The Colorado workhorse will also boast a one-tonne payload across the range2 – regardless of powertrain – and will be available in 4×2 or 4×4 guise across all Single and Crew Cab models, while Space Cab will be 4×4 only.
Holden offers a six-speed automatic transmission as a $2,000 option on every model except the entry level DX cab chassis, which is available with a 5-speed manual transmission only.
Holden New Zealand Managing Director, Jeff Murray, said he was pleased to finally be able to announce Colorado model line-up and pricing for probably the most talked about vehicle in the last six months.
“Holden has had an incredible amount of interest in this new Colorado even before models and pricing were announced but this will help the discerning customer be able to pre-order with more confidence,” Murray said.
“I don’t think it’s a secret that this really is a great product and we along with our dealers are very keen to show off this new generation Colorado”.
“We’ve spent a lot of time ensuring we were able to provide an incredibly competitive Colorado package for our customers that includes great driving dynamics, impressive diesel performance and more than a one-tonne payload on every new model.
“Holden has had a significant input into the new Colorado which has been developed for the global market and has a suspension tune along with many accessories designed to suit our local conditions.
“There is a Colorado to suit every customer with four models to choose from and three different body styles in either 4×2 or 4×4.
“One of the most exciting aspects of the new Colorado is that the new 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine provides a mighty 3.5-tonne towing capacity, now that’s some towing power.
The 2012 Holden Colorado will be packed with lifestyle and comfort features including Bluetooth® connectivity, power windows, two auxiliary power outlets, auxiliary input, USB port and iPod® compatible audio system.
Colorado will also have a comprehensive array of safety features with Electronic Stability Control, ABS, driver and front passenger airbags and side curtain airbags standard across the range.
Holden will release a full list of specifications and features for the new Colorado range closer to its mid-year launch.
