The Colorado Interior
Front as well as middle-row occupants have plenty of space in all directions, while basic, the seats are comfy in all the models. The leather option is quite slippery but with seat covers fitted it can be overcome.
The center-row folds flat and also drops forward in its 60/40 parts. Back parking sensors have become standard kit for all models too while vinyl floor has been mounted to crew cabs and LX singles.

Drive comfort is average at best when compared with its competition. But the company has had a few changes to enhance the overall performance. The engine range of some models has been minimised to one.
All the models have seen a gain of 17kW-147kW. While the huge ladder-frame chassis might not be the benchmark on-road, the long travel suspension offers great comfort ride and will keep your passengers happy.
Holden Colorado Technology
All models come with the new 7-inch MyLink touch screen. This particular MyLink is a great one as it comes with a seriously glossy interface for use with BringGo apps, Pandora, Stitcher and TuneIn.
While previous models lacked tech style, standard inclusions like cruise control, an electrically-adjustable driver’s seat and the reversing camera have gained Colorado valuable points. The Bluetooth voice and telephone connectivity are also fitted and work very well.
The re-modified 2.8-litre-four-cylinder turbo diesel engine is joined to either a remapped 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic. In the case of manual gearbox, power has been lifted 132kW to 147kW and 500Nm of torque in the auto model.
With unbeaten 3.5 tonne towing capacity, the Colorado can tackle whatever challenge you may throw at it. Rough as they come, the 2014 models leave nothing behind, allowing you take everything you need on your weekend.
