2012 Holden Colorado

Holden has released the first details of its all-new Colorado.

Due to go on sale in mid-2012, it will be available with a single cab, longer space cab or four-door crew cab. The standard spec for all versions promises to be generous, as it includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution, front and side curtain airbags, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity.

Buyers will have a choice of two engines, both four-cylinder turbo diesels. In 2.5 litre form, outputs are 147 bhp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 350 Nm (258 lb/ft) of torque, while for those wanting more grunt there’ll be a 2.8 litre that produces 177 bhp (132 kW / 179 PS) and a strong 440 Nm (324 lb/ft).

Both will come with a five-speed manual gearbox, plus the larger capacity engine is also going to be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission. With that option selected, peak torque increases to 470 Nm (346 lb/ft).

Payload capacity across the range is at least one tonne, while towing capacity is 3.0 tonnes with the 2.5 litre engine, or 3.5 tonnes with the 3.0 litre motor selected.

Prices for the Holden Colorado have yet to be revealed, and there’s no word yet on whether it’ll make it to Europe as a Chevrolet.
