2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report four – interior

Facelifts are a wonderful thing. Not only in the cosmetic sense – but more so when it refers to a car being updated, bringing it to the forefront of current technology and style. The Holden Colorado’s facelift back in Q3 2016 was a huge leap forward for the model, but one major area where it’s feeling a lot fresher is inside the cabin...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report three – off-roading

The last time we checked in with our 2017 Holden Colorado Z71, it was getting kitted-out for off-road adventures. Now, we didn’t go all-out throwing the full ARB catalogue at it just yet – but as I’m sure you’ll agree, it does look the part. So, it can talk the talk, but now it’s time to put its extra kit into practice off the beaten track...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report two

Whether it be through a multitude of contrasting paint options, bespoke build programs or just some clever technology, ways of making your car, even more, yours (Mike wouldn’t let me say ‘yourer’), is pretty hot property at the moment. Our 2017 Holden Colorado Z71 long-termer, Mr Plow, has taken a relatively traditional personalisation route though, through the addition of some genuine accessories...

Behind the scenes: 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in a Holden Colorado ute

It's been at least a day since I last found a random piece of glitter in my hair, and the resultant headache from a long night out is now finally just a memory. You see, it's been a week since I joined Holden at the 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, but that's how long it took to be rid of the sparkles as well as that shadow that follows (now that I'm in my 30s) after a night out...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

2017 Holden Colorado Review

Read the full article here. Utes, or trucks (as Holden likes to call them), have exploded in popularity over recent years. Today, Ute sales shine both at the entry level as workhorses and at the top end as lifestyle vehicles. It’s with little surprise that Holden has done everything in its power to ensure the2017 Holden Colorado fits the bill on all fronts...

2017 Holden Colorado and Trailblazer engineering development drive

Read the article here. Holden has spent over 100,000km developing and providing engineering input into the 2017 Holden Colorado and Holden Trailblazer — also known as the Chevrolet S10 and Chevrolet Trailblazer. We join Holden engineers over a two day journey to discover what has changed and what impact the Australian engineering team has had on the hugely important project...

2016 Holden Colorado LS-X Review

Read the article here. Over the past few years, we’ve seen the humble ute grow from a basic working tool into something a bit more flashy, not to mention expensive. All while being the same fundamental machine underneath. With most passenger cars and SUVs, we find ourselves recommending the mid-to-high spec variants, as that is where the value is...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

Holden Colorado LTZ v Toyota HiLux SR5 comparison

I’m sure that deep inside a fortune cookie somewhere is a pseudo-cryptic message that suggests being first doesn’t immediately equate with being the best. Take this pair of pick-ups for example. For 2016, the Toyota HiLux was not only the highest selling ute in Australia, it was the highest selling passenger vehicle. Period...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Holden Colorado Z71 comparison

This is the new Ford versus Holden battleground. Forget sedans, forget V8s: diesel dual-cab utes are where these two brands stand to garner the most credibility among their true blue Aussie buyers in the coming years. As a result we’ve brought together the Ford Ranger Wildtrak and its heavily updated rival, the Holden Colorado Z71, for a duel...

2018 HSV/Walkinshaw Colorado: HSV's new ute exposed

What you're looking at here is the beefed up Holden Colorado that will wear an HSV or Walkinshaw badge from 2018. Trademark images submitted by HSV were exclusively sourced by CarAdvice to build these renders, which indicate that the HSV Colorado will be a big cosmetic step up from the current version offered by Holden...

HSV Colorado coming: Engine, chassis and looks to be modded

Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) is understood to have numerous irons in the fire, one of the most interesting being a plan to capitalise on the pickup boom with an aggressive HSV Colorado dual-cab for 2018. The Melbourne-based operation — tuning arm of the Walkinshaw Group, one of the remaining positive stories in Australian auto manufacturing — has a storied history tuning rear-wheel drive V8 Commodore sedans, wagons and utes...

Holden Colorado, Colorado 7, Trailblazer recalled for jack fix

Holden has issued an equipment recall for its 'RG' Colorado, Colorado 7 and Trailblazer model lines over concerns the vehicle jacks could have incorrect instruction labels. The company reports that certain vehicle jacks - sold by the Holden Service Parts Organisation (HSPO) - may be fitted with labels that do not correctly describe the safe and correct usage of the jack...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 (4x4) review

This is my second Colorado as the first was very reliable. I went for the Z71 as I am swapping out of my GU Patrol. The appeal for the Z71 was the leather interior and the tech equipment. I love the auto headlights; saves me remembering to turn them off on dull rainy days. The rear-view camera is great and works in combination with the parking sensors...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 (4x4) review

I looked around at a new car to replace my Nissan Patrol ST 2010 model, which I have owned since brand new. I looked at the Holden Colorado, Ford Ranger and the Nissan Patrol. I took all three cars for a test drive. At the end of the day I was so impressed with the Holden Colorado Z71. The car has so much power for being a 2.8-litre...

2015 Holden Colorado Z71 (4x4) Review

My 2015 Z71 blows my traded in VE Thunder ute out of the water as both my daily driver and as a weekend toy tower. With fuel use at around 8.4l/100km unladen and 10.5/100km towing my racecar. I am regularly complimented on colour choice (Orange Rock). I never saw myself as a 4x4 ute owner, now after 10 months and 40,000 kms, I wonder why I never bought one before...

2016 Holden Colorado LTZ (4x4) Review

**DISCLAIMER - This is not my car, but is owned by my father. I have driven it quite a few times while at home on holidays without my car, these are my experiences** I've always had and driven small cars and performance sedans, like my old tuned Audi A4 and my current Fiesta ST so getting in a car that's almost as big as a house was a little disconcerting, especially when backing out of the driveway without using my trusty rear camera in the Fiesta...
