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.
Last year, the brand had sales of about 4.25 million vehicles in more than 120 countries.
