Two years ago, HSV unveiled the SportsCat pickup, which is an upgraded version of the Australian-spec Colorado. The SportsCat package added items like beefier anti-roll bars, raised suspension and off-road wheels shod with Cooper off-road tires, while the range-topping SportsCat+ model added AP Racing brakes, an electronically adjustable anti-roll bar, and unique cosmetic features.
Now HSV is back a with an updated version of the SportsCat called the SportsCat Series 2. The SportsCat Series 2 picks up where the first truck left off, but features a different gloss black grille, new gloss black fascia inserts, new alloy wheels, and HSV Performance seats. There is also a new steering wheel and more HSV logos on the exterior and inside the cabin.
Apart from these small revisions, the HSV Colorado SportsCat Series 2remains unchanged from the standard SportsCat. It has the same 2.8-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the same off-road suspension (with the same optional SupaShock off-road dampers) and the same safety technology. The base model is now called the SportsCat V, however, whereas the old SportsCat+ is now the SportsCat SV.
Pricing for the SportsCat Series 2 will start at $62,490 AUS for the automatic and extend to $64,690 AUS for the automatic, while the SportsCat SV will start at $66,790 AUS and $66,990 AUS for the manual and auto, respectively.
