One of the favorite pickup trucks in Australia after the Raptor model is definitively Holden Colorado. The new model is arriving, and from various information, it will be better than ever. According to a reliable source, the next-gen 2021 Holden Colorado is getting a similar facelift as the Chevrolet version for the U.S market.
Besides many exterior upgrades, the manufacturer would also introduce a completely redesigned cabin. The new model was recently spotted testing with a mild camo on the front.
2021 Holden Colorado Exterior Facelift
The upcoming 2021 Holden Colorado will look better and more modern than before for sure. The first spy photos reveal that the next-gen Holden Colorado will keep the same shape with slightly bigger dimensions. Thanks to the latest aesthetic upgrades, this pickup truck will finally look more competitive. As a result of bigger sizes, Colorado will be broader and extended.
The front fascia is the only part that is camouflaged, but we managed to see through. Some severe changes are happening, and we can see a new grille that looks broader. The LED headlights are more massive and slightly different than on the current one. The rear fascia is luckily uncovered without camo, and it hosts reshaped taillights and a modified bumper.
Cabin Hosts More Comfort
The complete redesign of 2021 Holden Colorado can be expected inside. Generally, this pickup truck will finally get more equipment. According to Honda, the plan is to make a better layout resulting in a more interior room. Also, the standard technology package this time should satisfy the customers. The interior is among the best in a segment after the Raptor model.
Like before, this pickup offers room for five occupants through two rows with generous capacity. Upper trim levels will introduce better quality with more soft-touch surfaces. Moreover, expect better safety systems and an updated infotainment system. From what we heard, Holden Colorado will feature many things from the Chevy version. That means we might see the same 8-inch touchscreen with standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio, as well as rear-park assist.
Three Powertrains Variants Available
The latest 2021 Holden Colorado, from the information that we got, will be powered by the same 2.8-liter Duramax engine. If you didn’t know, the diesel unit is very efficient and is capable of producing 200 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. Generally, this engine is the most popular choice among customers.
However, like before, on the list should also be two gasoline engines. The first one produces 200 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque, while optional is more powered. This model under the hood has 3.6-liter V6 gasoline making 305 horses with 270 lb-ft of twisting power. On top of that, all three engine options come standard with eight-speed automatic transmission, while the AWD system is still optional.
Release Date and Price
The next-gen 2021 Holden Colorado has been recently spied testing and is carrying some mild refreshments. According to Honda Australia, the new model will cost more than its predecessor. Generally, this makes sense because it comes with some updates.
The price will start at $32,000 for the base model, and it can reach $50,000 for the range-topping trim level. Colorado will firstly arrive in Australia, and after that, we can expect this modern pickup truck on the other countries.
