The Colorado 4x2 Single Cab Chassis and Crew Cab pickup models (LX and LT-R) are now available with Holden’s locally built Alloytec V6 dual-fuel LPG engine.
The engine uses Sequential Vapour Gas Injection (SVGI) technology to inject gas directly into the engine’s intake manifold, similar to the petrol injection process.
The Euro IV emissions standard compliant system delivers 155kW of power and 300Nm of torque (in petrol mode) and has a braked towing capacity of 2500kg.
Combined cycle fuel consumption when running on LPG is 16.7 litres/100km for manual models (17.2 litres/100km automatic), while CO2 emissions are 269g/km (276g/km auto).
The Cab Chassis comes with a 56-litre cylindrical LPG tank positioned between the chassis rails, while the Crew Cab models have a 76-litre toroidal tank positioned in the spare wheel casing.
The dual-fuel system is available as a $3850 option (excluding GST), and is fully covered by a three-year/100,000km warranty.
A $2000 Government rebate is available to eligible private LPG vehicle purchasers, while vehicles registered in Western Australia may also be eligible for a further $1000 rebate under the LPG Vehicle Scheme.
