Santa has his sleigh, so why doesn’t the Easter Bunny have his own ride? Well, in Australia, he does. Holden once again took part in a program where the 2015 Holden Colorado 7, with help from the Easter Bunny, delivered over 45,000 Easter eggs across a tour of Melbourne.
The 2015 Colorado 7, and its three ton towing capability, were no match for the load of chocolate eggs the vehicle carried behind it. The 368 lb-ft of torque provided in the 2015 Colorado 7 pulled the “Choc Drop” trailer with ease as it caravanned its way through Melbourne.
The program is part of Holden’s long time commitment to The Good Friday Appeal, where the brand had already donated a 2015 Holden Trax as a first place prize in the event.
Holden Executive Director of Marketing, Bill Mott, was confident there was no other vehicle suited for this heartwarming project than the capable Holden Colorado 7.
“Hauling 45,000 Easter eggs and the Easter bunny around Melbourne for the day is no mean feat, which is why the Colorado 7, with its huge, three tonne towing capacity, 500Nm [368 lb-ft] of torque and effortless urban drive handling, is the perfect vehicle to carry out the challenge and all for a fantastic cause,” said Mott.
The Choc Drop had two planned stops, but the route was mostly guided by fans who tweeted in to the official Holden Twitter account providing feedback on where the next stop should be. We’d be curious to see what else the Easter Bunny is hiding away in his garage. Surely there’s a VF Commodore in there somewhere.
