Judging by comments from General Motors’ Australian subsidiary, Holden, we should expect a longer and wider next-generation Chevrolet Colorado.
WhichCar reported on Wednesday that the next Holden Colorado will grow to become longer and wider, and a Holden insider said the next truck will be engineered and built with the global market in mind. Therefore, we may see more similarities between the North American Chevrolet Colorado and Australia’s Holden Colorado.
Right now, the Holden Colorado shares some Isuzu engineering and chassis components. Holden and Isuzu have since dissolved the partnership.
The report added that things aren’t looking good for a gasoline-powered Colorado in Australia, however. Instead, it’s understood engineers will focus on diesel engines. Additionally, there’s no word on a hardcore Colorado variant similar to the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Holden Special Vehicles did recently release the SportsCat, which amplifies the current Colorado with more off-road goodies.
However, the next Colorado is still years away. The latest intel we received regarding the next-generation Colorado and GMC Canyon is a 2022 introduction.
