Holden Colorado SportsCat By HSV review

HSV has modified another Holden… but this time it’s a Colorado dual-cab ute, and this time there’s no extra performance. We drive a pre-production version to see if tougher styling and upgraded underpinnings improve this Ford Ranger Wildtrak/Raptor rival.

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 long-term review, 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 long-term review, 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...

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

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...

2018 Dual-Cab Ute Mega Test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

Ute mega test: How do the tubs stack up?

They’re more likely to carry dirty nappies and road bikes than a bale of hay, but all eight of the cars on our 2018 dual-cab mega test are, you know, dual-cab utes. That means they still need to be fit for hard work. Has the transition to a life of luxury undermined the inherent practicality of these one-time work vehicles? Here’s a look at how the tray on each stacks up...

Ute mega test: Bluetooth comparison

In such a competitive segment, there can be a lot to take in when purchasing your next ute. As a result, Bluetooth user-friendliness and quality often gets overlooked, but generally, it is one of the most used features for drivers - especially tradies - as a lot of business calls are conducted while on the move...

Holden launches 'not to be outdone' ad series for Colorado - video

It may not top some of Toyota's memorable and almost iconic HiLux ads for sheer comedy, but Holden's new Colorado campaign could help the ute pick up some needed sales in the months ahead. Figures for the end of March show the Colorado 4x4 on 3459 sales year-to-date – down from 4102 for the same period in 2017...

2012 Holden Colorado LX (4x4) review

To start this review, I need to be upfront and say that I don't own this car. But I feel that after driving it for the better part of 70,000km over the last 18 months, I probably have enough experience to let people know what's what. Tomorrow I hand it back (to my employer) in preparation to receive a new vehicle this week, so I thought if I didn’t review it now, I never would...

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...
