2020 Holden Colorado review

Is the updated range enough to bolster the Colorado's appeal?

Holden Colorado Accessory Packs launched: Something for everyone?

The hard-working Holden Colorado range has been blessed with five new accessory packs to help the brand stand out among a sea of dual cab utes on the market right now. Of course, the idea of an upgrade pack isn’t necessarily new, with most manufacturers adding one or two at some point along a vehicle’s lifetime...

2018 Holden Colorado LTZ review

500Nm of torque, 1000kg of payload and some handy tech inside. But is the Colorado better than the sum of its parts?

2018 Holden Colorado LT review

The Holden Colorado doesn't get the plaudits it deserves in the face of relentless Ranger and HiLux sales. Holden fans love it, but you should consider it if you're in the market for a dual-cab 4WD.

2020 Holden Colorado review: Still got it?

The Colorado may not be brand-spanking new anymore, but it remains a solid, competitive ute with a good warranty and a grunty donk. There’s no real weaknesses in the lineup or details, with good performance on-road and off-road. There's decent tech and comfort on offer, and the value proposition has improved slightly with the MY2020 changes.

2019 Holden Colorado Accessory Packs launched

Holden Colorado Comparisons

2018 Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-MAX v Mazda BT-50 v Volkswagen Amarok

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 comparison: Which ute has the best tub?

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 comparison: Which ute has the best Bluetooth?

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...

2020 Holden Colorado pricing and specs

Holden has released the details on its 2020 Colorado, which builds upon a 2016 facelift of the four- and two-wheel drive, 2.8-litre diesel ute. It's not an all-new model (yet), and this update isn't as dramatic as the facelifts Mitsubishi and Ford have given their utes recently. There are some changes, however. The biggest is two new permanent additions to the range...

2017 Holden Colorado LS (4x4) review

One of the perks of working in my industry is that more often than not, a work vehicle will be provided in lieu of you needing to own a personal car. This has its pros, namely being that you escape the hassle (and cost) of insurance and registration, but also has its cons in that the choice of vehicle you drive is at the mercy of somebody who only cares about their bottom dollar...

2017 Holden Colorado LTZ (4x4) review

Wowee, what a mule! These trucks have come a long way over the last few years. Every time I hop into my big, blue Collie, it is like taking the missus out spontaneously to a fancy restaurant: you know she sure will be impressed, you have a giant smile on your face, and she is sure to show you the love straight after...

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...
