Holden / Colorado / range
WITH its launch delayed six months due to the floods in Thailand, Holden has a lot of catching up to do with the crucial new Colorado, and has gone some way towards that by pre-selling 1500 units ahead of its showroom arrival.
Designed from the ground up as a global product, with a smattering of Australian input, the Colorado gets an efficient all-diesel engine line-up, class-leading towing capability and standard safety gear to set it apart from the crowd.
Holden says being the newest ute on the scene, pent-up demand caused by the delay and outstanding customer loyalty, will get the Colorado off to a flying start.
But how does it stack up against hot competition from other recently-launched rivals?

THE Colorado nameplate usurped Rodeo as Holden launched what was essentially a facelifted RA Series II Rodeo, built by Isuzu in Thailand.
Holden boosted standard features to include air-conditioning, dual front airbags and wider availability of anti-lock brakes and the number of variants fell from around 45 to 30 versions compared with the Rodeo.
Single-space- and dual-cab choices were offered in combination with Holden-built 2.4-litre four-cylinder and 3.6-litre V6 petrol or 3.0-litre diesel engines across 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrains.
