Chevrolet dropped heavy hints at not only future global product for the brand, but also for Holden. The Chevrolet Colorado Xtreme is said to hide a refreshed Holden Colorado ute, and the Chevrolet Trailblazer Premier has a Colorado 7 refresh behind it flashy bits.
Except, the Holden Colorado 7 will be no longer. Wheels has reported the brand will ditch the Colorado 7 name for the Trailblazer nameplate, once born from the U.S. SUV, but now used globally. Both show cars were developed and assembled at GM Design Australia, and have strong Holden roots.
The publication has confirmed the updated Holden Trailblazer will appear before September for the brand, along with a repositioned image. The nameplate change is said to reflect a differentiation factor from the Colorado pickup and the SUV counterpart, especially as the Trailblazer moves into more refined territory with “Premiere” trimmings.
Holden continues to have a stronger hold on vehicle development as it sources its entire portfolio of vehicles from other global markets, and the Trailblazer and Colorado have been undergoing tuning on local roads since initial development, for proper Australian tastes.
