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 4x4 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
