While the U.S. welcomes the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine in the North American Chevrolet Colorado, Australia, and the entire world, are preparing for an all-new midsize truck. Holden and Chevrolet globally has used the turbo-diesel since 2013.
That’s why a Holden Colorado redo is much overdue. The ute market in Australia is fierce, and main competitors have already redesigned, and reengineered their product as the market continues to boom. Wheels have spied the 2016 Colorado dressed up in thick camouflage, hiding what appears to be much more than a subtle refresh.
We still can’t make out what’s going on with the headlights, but they seem to be production ready, along with a revised front grille. The eye-wandering camo does a great job at hiding the style lines along the side of the truck, but the rear seems to look fairly similar to what we’ve already seen from the global Colorado.
The 2016 Colorado is expected to go on sale in June of next year in the Australia market, with global launches likely around that same time.
