“Colorado Midnight Edition offers sinister styling that will bring an edgy, darker attitude wherever it goes. It’s so cool, it looks like it should be used for covert operations,” said Piyanuch Chaturaphat, General Director of Sales and Marketing Chevrolet Thailand.
All models will be powered by the 2.5L I-4 XLD25 engine that’s part of the Duramax engine family. The diesel four-banger makes 180 horsepower at 3,600 RPM and 440 Nm (324 pound-feet) torque at 2,000 RPM.
Only 100 units will be built for the Thai market, so those who desire one should
walk run sprint to their local Chevy dealer to reserve one, as it becomes available for ordering beginning at the 35th Thailand International Motor Expo at dealerships nationwide.
The 2019 Colorado Midnight Edition is priced as follows:
- THB 1,028,000 ($31,100 USD) for the 4X2 model
- THB 1,098,000 ($33,200 USD) for the 4X4 model
About Chevrolet Colorado
The Chevrolet Colorado is a mid-size pickup truck. It is currently Chevrolet's smallest pickup truck in the U.S. and Canada, slotting under the full-size Chevrolet Silverado. In Mexico, the Colorado slots above the compact Chevrolet Montana and the similarly-sized S10, but below the Silverado/Cheyenne (the name for some of Silverado's trim levels in Mexico).
The current Colorado was introduced in 2015 and represents the second generation of the Colorado nameplate. The model rides on the GMT-31XX platform shared with the GMC Canyon, as well as the international-market Chevrolet Colorado/S10 and Chevrolet Trailblazer.
The 2018 Chevy Colorado represents the fourth model year of the second-generation Colorado. The vehicle remains highly competitive in its segment, offering two gasoline engines and a diesel motor, which is a segment exclusive. The off-road-specific Colorado ZR2 was launched for the 2017 model year. However, the Colorado family continues to lack various features asked by many present and potential customers, such as a moonroof, a sliding rear window, as well as a range-topping LTZ or High Country trim level.
The 2019 Chevy Colorado represents the fifth model year of the second-generation Colorado. The vehicle sees a new Colorado ZR2 Bison package, new exterior colors, a new 18-inch wheel, black bowties for every ZR2 model. Additionally, the 2019 Colorado gets new set of infotainment systems that represent the third generation of Chevrolet infotainment systems, Type A and Type C USB ports, a second in-cabin microphone, a high-def Rear Vision Camera, UltraSonic Rear Park Assist, a heated steering wheel, and 6-way power driver seat on some models. The street-focused Colorado RST and Z71 Trail Runner off-roader are also added to the lineup.
A midcycle refresh is expected for the 2020 model year. It is believed that the update will bring revised front and rear styling, as well as possible updates to the interior, and powertrain.
For the U.S. and Canada, the Chevrolet Colorado is built at the GM Wentzville factory in Missouri operated by GM USA. The model sold in Asia-Pacific is built at the GM Thailand plant in Rayong, which is operated by GM Thailand. The GM Sao Jose Dos Campos plant operated by GM Brazil builds the Chevy S10 for South America.
