The new Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck is going through final testing in Thailand before entering production at GM’s Rayong assembly plant.
This cool and capable truck seems to be designed for the American market, but it won’t be going on sale stateside. The Colorado is in fact developed for the emerging markets in Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
The car will first go on sale in Thailand, offering crew-cab and extended-cab variants powered by GM’s new fuel-efficient, four-cylinder Duramax units, including 2.5-liter and 2.8-liter diesel engines. Visual features of the car include streamlined “cab collar” design with a body-color hard tonneau cover on the bed, Gray accents on the side, front and rear lower moldings, 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a “liquid metal” finish, with Stone Gray color wheel ports, Cooper 285/50R20 ZEON LTZ tires, and Outside mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators.
That’s of course fro the concept version, but the production Colorado should be very similar, save the 20-inch wheels probably.
