The Colorado RS Street builds on the Colorado RS limited edition model that was launched in Thailand earlier this year. It’s based on the Thai-market Colorado X-Cab LT RS and features lowered suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, Recaro seats, a motorsport-inspired steering wheel, a sports gear knob, sports pedals, racing gauges, adjustable shocks and struts and front and rear Brembo brakes. t also features a unique Chevrolet graphic wrap, which GM Thailand says was inspired by Chevrolet’s “rich NASCAR heritage” and was specially designed in the GM Australia design studios in Melbourne.
Joining the Colorado RS Street is the Panther concept, which is based on the limited run Colorado Midnight Edition. This truck was also put together using input from GM Australia and features a skid plate, aftermarket shocks, a Warn winch, extended sports bar, tubular side steps, a rear step package, an LED light bar, 17-inch wheels and BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain KM3 tires. Rounding out the package is a bulged hood intended to give the truck a more aggressive appearance.
GM Thailand says the Chevrolet Colorado RS Street and Colorado Panther concepts “show what is possible with the Chevrolet Colorado,” package.
“Colorado is one of the most versatile and capable pick-up trucks on the planet and is the perfect platform for Thai customers to stamp their personal style,” Hector Villarreal, President of GM Southeast Asia, said in a prepared statement. “These concepts will surely inspire truck enthusiasts across the country to challenge all possibilities.”
The production-spec Colorado RS was also shown at the Thai show, which is limited to just 200 units and will be priced from 675,000 Thai Baht, equivalent to just over $22,000 USD. It is set apart from standard Chevrolet Colorado models by its lowered suspension, two-tone exterior paint and RS exterior badging.
