2019 Holden Colorado review: V8 Harrop Superado

Unfortunately, the legendary and ubiquitous Aussie V8 ute has been assigned to the history books for some time now. Those wanting one will be trawling through second-handers instead of showroom floors, as the market has pivoted towards the 4X4 ute. One option is a tuned Holden Colorado by engineering outfit Harrop, who call their car the 'Superado'...

Best ute 2019 comparison: Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Isuzu D-Max v Holden Colorado v Volkswagen Amarok v Mazda BT-50 v Mercedes X-Class v Ssangyong Musso XLV v LDV T60

We test 11 of the best double-cab utes on sale in Australia today, including towing, loading, in the city and suburbs, and off-road.

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...

The 2021 Holden Colorado we were supposed to get

The 2021 Holden Colorado ute won't be coming to Australian showrooms next year because the brand will be retired by the end of 2020, but here's how it was going to look. What was Holden's biggest-selling car since it ended Australian manufacturing in October 2017 has been discontinued locally, but will live on in left-hand-drive markets in South America...

Five best ute deals below $40,000 to kick off the new year

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...
