GM Holden Ltd has offered a refreshed Holden Colorado Z71 for 2017. This model is intended for buyers on the Australian market. The interest in the refreshed model is fantastic, so we are already speculating about the changes and improvements for the 2018 Holden Colorado pickup. Expectations from the new model are in line with the achievements of this vehicle. However, great attention is drawn to the announcement of a special edition, called the 2018 Holden Colorado SuperUte. This is a model that will take part in a specially organized pickup model. But about something later.
The Holden Colorado Z71 has gone through a similar process of change as Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, which are offered on the US market. The vehicle is based on the Colorado LTZ 4×4 Crew Cab version, and is the top model of this model. 2018 Holden Colorado could offer similar promotions, which GM is prepared for the “American brothers”, Colorado and Canyon.
The LTZ version is offered with new tinted lights, black body decorations, new front bumper designs and side sills. And the bonnet has got new decorations, and there are new 18-inch alloy wheels, in dark gray and arsenal metallic colors. All in all, the vehicle has got a more modern and aggressive look of the outside.
In all likelihood, and 2018 Holden Colorado will offer a higher level of equipment. Some sources state that there is a possibility of moving within trim levels. This would mean that the base model will no longer exist, but the version with higher trim will become the base version.
Versions with a higher level of equipment would thus possess the leather interior as standard equipment. The seats receive a system of heating and ventilation in all trim levels. The rear view camera, as well as MyLink infotainment system, which is equipped with a 7-inch screen, become part of standard equipment. All in all, 2018 Holden Colorado goes a step ahead.
Duramax diesel engine
As the top version of the model, the Colorado Z71 runs a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine. This engine will be available for all 2018 Holden Colorado versions as an optional solution.
The Duramax engine delivers great performance to the vehicle, especially in the field of wagons and loads. Holden Colorado, with this engine, has a wagon capacity of 3,500 kilograms. The engine power is 200 horsepower with 440 Nm of torque, and the engine is coupled with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Thanks to a powerful engine, 2018 Colorado is also ready for the toughest challenges. Starting from carrying out the most difficult operations, freight and pulling, to overcome the true off-road terrain.
2018 Holden Colorado SuperUte
SuperUte ECB Series is new racing series that plays off the exploding popularity of pickup trucks. Australia will have Turbodiesel-powered, mid-size, Crew Cab pickups racing around tracks like the Gold Coast’s Norwell Motorplex starting in March of 2018.
Similar to this competition, NASCAR has its own Camping World Truck Series. However, the SuperUte ECB Series competes in production pickup models. This means that the vehicles that are available in every showroom are now measuring the strengths of the race track. Of course, these vehicles come with minor modifications. First of all, because of security.
Every truck is capped at 340 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, while the minimum weight is set at 3,968 pounds. Since this championship has been organized in Australia, Holden Colorado represents the General Motors company. Automakers currently preparing for the SuperUte Series include Ford, Mazda, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, Toyota and General Motors.
