Chevrolet has revealed its latest for the global stage at the 37th Bangkok International Auto Show. Meet the Chevrolet Colorado Xtreme concept.
While we say concept, ditch the gaudy, off-road cues, and you’re very much looking at a production Chevy Colorado for the rest of the world, including an inbound Holden Colorado refresh. Chevrolet states the idea to reveal a show truck with off-road dressings was on purpose, playing to the consumer’s will of personalizing and accessorizing their trucks.
Dramatic hood scoops, side plates and a front end geared towards ground clearance help make one tough looking pickup truck, along with the 18-inch, all-terrain tires. Large fender flares lend themselves to off-roading, too. And, we can’t go without noting the very cool Furness matte orange exterior color, which is also awash inside.
Additionally, a custom bedliner receives adjustable tie-down tracks, which are extended to the lift gate and an integrated spare wheel mount can also hold tools.
Stripping away the boatload of accessories, the face of the Colorado Xtreme is a refreshing one, looking decidedly more modern, and much less “developing country.” Inside is the same story, too, with more premium materials, including custom orange contrasting, an integrated pitch and roll meter and leather-cloth combination seating.
“Inspiration came from many sources. In particular, we looked at the U.S. market, where Chevrolet is the leader in truck design. Looking at the Xtreme, it is clear that the North American market influenced many of the styling cues. The end result is a serious pickup with no compromises,” said GM International Vice President of Design Michael Simcoe.
“It is great to have the opportunity to showcase design possibilities today that could be developed and seen in the cars and trucks of tomorrow,” he added.
The Chevrolet Colorado Xtreme will sit alongside the Chevrolet Trailblazer Premiere, which showcases a softer side of ruggedness. In any case, both vehicles look ready to debut production variants very soon.
