2017 Holden Colorado and Trailblazer engineering development drive

It's not uncommon for members of the public to spy pre-development vehicles being driven around the traps by manufacturers ahead of their launches. It's less common when the vehicles being driven are not produced in Australia. And, it's even less common when we're allowed to drive them...

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...

Holden Colorado Comparisons

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...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

January Sales: Toyota HiLux edges Ranger and Colorado

Now that we’re acclimatised to the idea of a light commercial being the nation’s top-selling vehicle for a calendar year, we can watch the market with a different set of eyes. We’re only one month into 2017, but the January figures for ute sales make for interesting reading, mostly on account of the ever-growing Toyota HiLux versus Ford Ranger battle — billed by some as the new Commodore v Falcon rivalry...

Holden Colorado top-spec models driving high profit margins

Holden's new Colorado, launched in 2016, signalled a new, focussed direction for the company. Australian ride-and-handling tuning, along with competitive pricing and features is now leading the way for rich margins on high-end Colorado sales...

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model. They can be massive, major overhauls, or nips and tucks and tweaks to minor aspects of the car's design...

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...

2014 Holden Colorado Lx (4x4) Review

My ute is a crew cab, cab chassis, fitted with an aftermarket steel tray by SpecGroup in Wodonga Victoria, IronMan Foam Cell Pro Suspension, ARB bull bar and fog lights. I also have a canvas canopy for the tray and SpecGroup framing for it. What I love: 1. The grunt - It will pull like a 15yo and easily tow 3T. The uprated rear suspension is a must as it helps keep it level...

2015 Holden Colorado Ls Review

The LS model comes out with most of the features of the higher priced models but has the vinal floors for those who like dirt on there boots. The 500nm torque creates a pleasurable towing experience with 2.6t behind. I also run arb steel bulbar, dual batteries, canopy, rear draws and always full. Total weight about 2.8t. 5.9t GCM so almost pushing the limit...
