Holden Colorado SportsCat by HSV introduced

A series of cosmetic changes and some chassis upgrades mark out the 2018 Colorado SportsCat and SportsCat+. Developed by HSV, these new pick-up variants are intended to offer a better on-road driving experience while maintaining their off-road abilities.

Accordingly, a revised suspension set-up includes stiffer front springs and recalibrated dampers. Also fitted are 18” forged alloy wheels shod with Cooper Zeon LTZ Pro sports all-terrain tyres. As a result, ride height has been raised by 45 mm (1.8”) at the front and 20 mm (0.8”) at the rear.

The SportsCat+ additionally gains a rear decoupling anti-roll bar, as well as four-piston AP Racing brake calipers and larger brake discs for the front axle. Buyers of this model will be able to further improve the handling by opting for a SupaShock package.

Both versions feature a redesigned front bumper, LED fog lights, a special grille, wheel arch extensions, a hard tonneau cover and a unique tailgate treatment. Inside, they boast heated sports seats covered in leather and suede.

A bonnet bulge appears on the SportsCat+ too. However, like the regular SportsCat, power comes from an unmodified 2.8 litre Duramax turbo diesel engine. Its 197 bhp (147 kW / 200 PS) output is delivered via either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select.

Holden has yet to announce prices.
