Holden Colorado

Holden has released the first official pictures of the 2017 Colorado in its Australian guise, ahead of its public launch at tonight’s NRL State of Origin match at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.

Despite subtle differences between the LS, LT and Z71 models shown, there appears to be no aesthetic changes to the Chevrolet version; the Trailblazer.

It will also feature trailer sway control to help keep you safe when towing a 3.5 tonne load.

Holden’s MyLink infotainment system is now also included, which boasts Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as well as digital radio, embedded satellite navigation and voice recognition.
