GM Announces Chevrolet Colorado 4th Of July Edition20
General Motors has announced a number of new model variants, packages, and special edition models as part of Chevrolet’s 4th of July celebration in Thailand earlier this month. The celebration included a party in honor of the American Spirit and Chevrolet’s American heritage, and also included the debut of two Chevrolet Colorado variants – the Colorado Trail Boss that we already showed you, plus a new special model dubbed the 4th of July Edition. We’re here to discuss the latter of the two.
With just 50 units planned for production, the Chevrolet Colorado 4th of July Edition is a limited-edition model. The package is offered on four-door High Country models, including both 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrain types.
The new limited edition midsize pickup truck comes equipped with a host of exterior upgrades, the most prominent of which is an enormous American flag decal along the pickup’s flanks and tailgate. The model also includes unique “4th July” badging that shows the head of a bald eagle against a waving American flag.
Talk about patriotic. This thing looks like it runs on Chuck Norris sweat and spews freedom out the tailpipe. However, in reality it runs on diesel fuel through a 2.5L Duramax turbodiesel XLD25 inline four-cylinder powerplant.
Complementary exterior bits include large 3D Colorado decals front and back, plus LED tail lamps. The special edition Colorado is also fully equipped with a range of “advanced technologies for safety and communications.”
Pricing for the Chevrolet Colorado 4th of July Edition starts at 1,009,000 Baht ($32,729 at current exchange rates, 7/18/2019), which is 310,000 Baht ($10,056) more than the standard Colorado C-Cab, which starts at 699,000 Baht ($22,674).
Chevrolet says the unique special edition is “sure to attract fans of American culture and American pickups.”
To note, this particular model is for the international-market Chevrolet Colorado, which is similar to (but quite a bit different from) the U.S.-spec Colorado we know here in the States. The international Colorado is assembled at the GM Rayong plant in Thailand, and is also sold as the Chevrolet S10 in Brazil and other Latin American markets.

A Fourth of July edition revealed on July 19.
Another first for GM Authority!
It will attract American fans and be the target of Muslim Radicals in the far east.
I hope they do well with it.
Most people in Thailand are Budists. You don’t want to mess with them. They have 10,000 lifetimes to get back at you.
I know. They are built by Buddhists but sold in the entire far east region. Some parts are not very patriotic towards America.
Scott only 50 of the 4th of July edition are being made. That probably means Thailand only.
Sorry they only use Toyota’s, Tehran Toyota has That business
Explains a lot. If I was forced to drive only Toyota’s I would be praying for a quick death as well.
But Kenny ‘murica Powers will buy it like it’s their god given right
Wait, released end of July in foreign country? Am I missing something here?
Hey, I like the style of the truck…..ditch the paint job,crazy HUGE Colorado decals, dump the diesel for an eight cyl… you can leave the Eagle. I like him…….What’s the interior look like? American flags on the seats?
GET RID OF THOSE LARGE COLORADO DECALS …..
I own a Colorado and love it, but I think this is a pretty dumb idea.
Are any of the Colorado variants available with the six-speed manual transmission?
How on earth can anyone trust GM after closing plants in Ohio this year with more to come and shipped jobs to Mexico.. un American company!!!! Really…
When the time comes for another car it will not be GM.
How many aliases do you post with?
Charles Mansion is one
Is this for real? A USA themed base truck that is for international markets? What would be the allure of someone from SouthEast Asia to buy this?
Build Trucks for the Thailand Market and put on graphics of American Flags with a Bald Eagle on the side…no consideration for having a truck like that with those type of graphics built for the US???…WTF ever, this isn’t even news worth getting excited about.
Having been a Colorado owner for years I say boo on this one. Bring the price down in the USA for the ones we already have at the dealership.
