The 2020 Holden Colorado is here, and it’s getting a few updates and changes, including making LSX edition a permanent trim level, as well as new standard equipment and a fresh accessory pack strategy, all with no pricing increases.
To kick things off, the 2020 Holden Colorado will now offer the LSX as a rugged, off-road-ready trim level. It was previously offered as a limited-edition model. The Holden Colorado LSX comes equipped with 18-inch wheels, a glossy black grille, fender flares, and a soft tonneau cover.
The 2020 Holden Colorado also comes with a DuraGuard spray-in bed liner, known as a “tub-liner” in Australia, as standard on the Z71 and LTZ trim levels.
“Just over 60 percent of Z71 and LTZ customers fit tub-liners,” said general manager of LCV [Light Commercial Vehicles) marketing at Holden, Andre Scott. “So we took the initiative to factory fit a premium product that delivers a quality fit, and a more functional and better-looking solution for our customers.”
The new liner is designed to reduce slipping and further toughen-up the bed.
New to the Z71 trim is a set of standard fender flares and a skid plate, as well as an exclusive soft-drop tailgate. Meanwhile, the mid-range LTZ Crew Cab now comes with standard leather seating and front-row heating.
The 2020 Holden Colorado also debuts a new accessory pack strategy designed to streamline the customization process. The accessory pack lineup includes the Tradie, Farmer, Black, Rig, and Xtreme.
As an example, the Tradie pack throws in:
- Towing package
- Side and rear step-ups
- Roof tray
- 12-volt auxiliary power outlet
- Floor mats
- Canvas seat covers
- Window weather shields
- Hood protector
Fleet customers will also be interested in the LTZ+ variant, which comes with an available tow package rated at just under 1,000 kg (2,205 pounds).
Standard specification across the line includes:
- 2.8L XLD28 turbo-diesel Duramax engine producing 197 horsepower
- Holden MyLink infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support
- Seven-inch color touchscreen
- Six-speaker audio system (Crew Cab only)

- Helical limited-slip differential
Best of all, MSRP for the 2020 Holden Colorado remains unchanged compared to the 2019 model year. Pricing starts at $31,690 (AUS) for the LS 4×2 Single Cab Chassis, and ranges as high as $57,190 (AUS) for the LZ1 4×4 Crew Cab.
For our Stateside readers, the Holden Colorado is the international version of the pickup of the same name that we enjoy here in the U.S. Despite a shared nameplate and 31XX platform, the Holden Colorado differs from the Chevrolet Colorado in several ways, including dimensions, cab and bed configurations, interior, and more.
