Redesigned Chevy Colorado pickup image

Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in advance of the Bangkok International Auto Show, where it is making its global public debut.

The truck is a massive jump over the current Colorado models that are being sold in the US, Asia and Australia.

The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-stance AWD chassis and rides on large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires.

Power comes from an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability.

Engines aside, the new Colorado is intended as a revival of the nameplate in terms of design. With a more powerful look, the pickup brings with it more fluid, compact lines, polished aluminum in the fascias and LED lighting.

Inside, there’s another signature Chevrolet cue: a dual-cockpit instrument panel design. It flows into the doors, with continuous lines that create a floating, wraparound effect, amplifying the Colorado’s feeling of spaciousness. Ice-blue lighting and high-quality, “double-faced” leather-trimmed seats add sophistication and refinement.
