Holden revealed the redesigned Colorado mid-size pickup truck last week as part of the 2016 State of Origin final at ANZ stadium that saw the QLD Maroons face off against the NSW Blues.

The Colorado boasts a sharp new look, improved driving dynamics, and a number of technological improvements including the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Holden Executive Director of Sales Peter Keley called the Colorado a key piece in the advancement of Holden’s product portfolio, emphasizing its ability to buck preconceived notions and provide something that truck customers may not typically expect.

“Colorado has resonated well with customers in a segment that has almost doubled in sales in the last ten years, and we’re confident the new 2017 Colorado will build on this and redefine customer expectations of what a truck can be,” said Keley. “Not only does it come with fresh new styling, it also offers car-like refinement, ride and handling as well as vehicle technologies unique to this segment including Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto connectivity. Colorado is also the only vehicle in the 4×4 utility vehicle segment to offer remote window activation—a feature we expect to be popular with customers in hot climate parts of Australia.”

Improvements to the 2017 Holden Colorado include a forward facing camera that works with Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning technologies. On the inside, the Colorado gets new Holden MyLink infotainment through either a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen, which can be paired with Digital (DAB+) radio, satnav, and voice recognition technology.

The new of Colorado Genuine Accessories range will also represent the largest pool of products ever put forth for a new Holden. In that respect, it draws a great deal of its inspiration from the Colorado Xtreme concept revealed earlier this year.

“When we revealed the Colorado Xtreme show truck back in March, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and that has driven us to make sure we included as many of the concept accessories as we could, into the final Colorado program,” said Holden Engineering Manager, Accessories, Joseph Basile. “In the coming months, the 2017 Colorado will deliver a plethora of all-new accessories to its range including a safari bar, fender flares, LED driving lights, 18-inch wheels, and all-terrain tires, so we’re confident there’s something for everybody.”
