Life is busy. Too often we plan to do something on the weekend, get away from it all, escape the everyday – and never do.
But what if you actually did all those things? We’re off on an adventure to test the sand driving capability of the Holden Colorado 7 LTZ.
The rolling sand dunes of Stockton Beach may be visually stunning, but they’re fraught with danger. Do your research before hitting the sand, and have safety equipment on hand in case you find yourself in trouble.
The Stockton Bight sand dunes are part of the Worimi Conservation Lands. The beach is 34km long with dunes up to 30-metres high and slopes of up to 60-degrees.
The Colorado 7 is built for weekends away – as well as its offroad capability, it also boasts an impressive three-tonne towing capacity, seven-seats and its spacious and functional.
This is the top of the range Colorado 7 LTZ with a 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 147kW of power and 500Nm of torque.
