First look at new Holden Colorado 7 SUV

Pictures released by Chevrolet of its new TrailBlazer reveal the first look at Holden's upcoming Colorado 7 — a localized version that sees the work ute turn into a seven-seat SUV.

The Colorado 7 is expected to share the same engine as the TrailBlazer — a 2.8-litre diesel which will generate 132kW and 470Nm of torque when paired with a six-speed manual transmission. However when optioned with the five-speed manual, torque will drop to 440Nm.

The Colorado now 7 becomes the head of Holden's SUV line-up, joining the smaller Captiva 5 and Captiva 7 models.

More details should be revealed ahead of the Trailblazer's debut at next week's Bangkok Motor Show, although for the moment we can at least tell you that the Colorado 7 will be in showrooms before the end of the year.
