The 2016 Holden Colorado Storm will see out the current-look ute range for the lion brand ahead of an updated version of the Holden Colorado ute arriving later this year.
The special-edition model is back for a second time, after first appearing early in 2015. Before that, the Storm badge had been reserved for the Commodore line. As you’d imagine, the extras on the 4×4 Colorado ute are a bit different to what you’d expect.
Additions include a black alloy sports bar, a black alloy nudge bar, a Storm-branded bonnet protector, Storm badges on the rear doors, and newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels (unique to last year’s examples). Carpet floor mats feature inside.
There is also Holden’s MyLink 7.0-inch touchscreen media system with Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, as well as a rear-view camera.
The Storm continues with the same 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine producing 147kW of power and either 440Nm of torque in six-speed manual guise or 500Nm of torque for the six-speed auto model. The auto model uses 9.1 litres per 100 kilometres, while the manual uses 8.1L/100km.
The Storm model sits above the existing LTZ model, but below the flagship Z71 model.
2016 Holden Colorado Storm pricing (plus on-road costs):
2.8-litre turbo diesel six-speed manual – $51,490
2.8-litre turbo diesel six-speed auto – $53,690
