The 2017 Holden Colorado has launched in Australia this week, with the range kicking off from $29,490 (plus on-road costs).

Built in Thailand, the latest iteration of the Colorado features a great deal of Australian engineering input, along with several features designed to set it aside from the rest of the pack.

The five star ANCAP rated Colorado will be offered in the following chassis layouts (all pricing plus on-road costs):

4×2:

  • Single cab chassis (LS) – $29,490
  • Crew cab chassis (LS) – $34,490
  • Crew cab pickup (LS, LT and LTZ) – $35,990, $38,990 and $42,490

4×4:

  • Single cab chassis (LS) – $37,490
  • Space cab chassis (LS) – $40,990
  • Space cab pickup (LTZ) – $48,990
  • Crew cab chassis (LS) – $43,490
  • Crew cab pickup (LS, LT, LTZ and Z71) – $44,490, $46,990, $50,490 and $54,490

The Colorado range is powered by a single engine variant, which is a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that produces 147kW of power and 500Nm of torque. Torque is sent through either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox ($2200 extra across the range).

While the range features a 3500kg braked/750kg unbraked towing capacity, payload varies from 1487kg for the 4×2 Colorado single cab chassis (automatic) to 1000kg for the 4×4 Z71 (manual transmission).
