MOUNTING pressure on Holden to announce that it will discontinue the Rodeo one-tonne range later this year, following GoAuto’s exclusive report earlier this month, has resulted in a statement confirming the plan.

As we reported, GM Holden will replace the Rodeo with a vehicle known as the Colorado.

As with Rodeo, the utility will be offered with petrol or diesel power, 4x2 or 4x4 drive and in a range of bodystyles including single cab, space cab and crew cab.

“The light commercial segment is a significant market for Holden and with this exciting new addition we will remain a major player with a highly competitive new entry,” said GM Holden LCV marketing manager Teresa Basile in a statement.

“And Rodeo owners can rest assured that Holden remains committed to providing superior customer service and parts availability to the current range.”
