The truck market in Australia is pretty crowded but Holden Colorado still manages to keep one of the leading positions, despite its age. The current generation has been around since 2012, which is quite a long time if we consider the current industry standard. Of course, we saw updates for these seven years and it looks there is another one on the way. Latest reports are suggesting that the current model will carry on for a couple of more years, but also an update for the upcoming 2020 Holden Colorado. Just like the North American Chevy Colorado, it will come with novelties in terms of the styling, new interior features and more. We expect to see it sometime in the second half of the next year.
2020 Holden Colorado Exterior
Most of the upcoming updates are about to come in terms of styling. Although it’s been updated already, we can’t say that the current model is among prettiest in the class. Simply, the 2020 Holden Colorado needs styling updates in order to remain competitive. Therefore, we count on a new face. This would include various novelties at the front end, including parts like the grille, front bumper and maybe even some headlights reshaping. The rear end probably won’t suffer that much, though some minor tweaks are possible. Of course, the count also on those typical updates, such as new color options, a new set of wheels, etc.
Despite the age, current Colorado offers one of the best cabins in the class. While most rivals feature pretty straightforward, work-oriented cabins, the interior of this one is refined and offers pretty good overall quality. The dashboard looks attractive and also features a fine number of soft-touch surfaces. Like previous year-models, the 2020 Holden Colorado will also come in a couple of variants when it comes to the cabin layout, both designs with single and two rows.
Also, we have to mention that the current model already comes with a pretty amazing list of standard features. For example, even the most basic models come with a touchscreen interface and GM’s intuitive infotainment system. Smartphone integration features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also, there a pretty long list of safety features, which includes some pretty advanced systems, like forward collision alert and lane departure warning.
2020 Holden Colorado Engine
We have no doubt that the things will remain the same under the good of 2020 Holden Colorado. Unlike North American models, this one comes only with a diesel engine in the offer. Of course, it is a well-known 2.8-liter unit. It delivers around 147 kW and 500 Nm (197 hp and 370 lb-ft), and can be paired with either manual or automatic transmission. It delivers pretty amazing performances, starting from an impressive 3.5 tons of max towing capacity.
Release Date and Price
Considering that the 2020 Holden Colorado is about to come with updates, we could see it a little bit earlier than usual. Still, we doubt it will come before the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, things should remain pretty much the same. That would mean around 30.000 AUD for base versions.
