Chevrolet Unveils Colorado Show Truck
Boldly styled show truck previews next-generation midsize pickup
BANGKOK, Thailand - Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in advance of the Bangkok International Auto Show, where it is making its global public debut. The concept previews the next-generation Colorado midsize pickup truck, which will build on Chevrolet's strong truck DNA and award-winning heritage. The Colorado goes on sale in Thailand later this year.
"Thailand is the world's-largest market for midsize pickups, so this was the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado," said Susan Docherty, vice president, GMIO Sales, Marketing and Aftersales. "Trucks have been part of Chevrolet's core for nearly all of its 100-year history. The Colorado reinforces that heritage with expressive design, refinement and uncompromising capability."
The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-stance AWD chassis and rides on large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. Power comes from an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability.
"Although this is a show vehicle, the basic proportions and form convey the vision for the next-generation Colorado that we will bring to market," said Brad Merkel, GM's global vehicle line executive. "It reflects a stylized version of the new truck, one that takes into account rugged dependable truck capabilities for commercial use as well as sophisticated refinement for personal-use needs."
While the new Colorado was developed within GM's global product development organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it would meet local market needs. Roberto Rempel, GM's global vehicle chief engineer, lived in Thailand for several months during the truck's development, immersing himself in the market and observing how the Thai people use their trucks and the road conditions they experience.
"Pickups are instrumental in the vibrant Thai economy and owners take great pride in their trucks, which are used for both work and personal driving," he said. "These customers ask a lot of their trucks, so the powertrains and chassis must be very robust to earn their trust -- and that's exactly what we've delivered."

Silverado ZR2 Concept
2011 San Diego international auto show the chevrolet silverado zr2 concept
truck. check out this great looking four wheel drive truck.
2011 san diego international auto show. Usually the Silverado is not a car
that catches much of an attention, but the ZR2 Concept is for sure the
Silverado that never was. The most amazing thing about the concept is the
LS supercharged crate engine from GM Performance Parts that delivers a
total of 550 hp. The ZR2 concept features a custom bodywork includes carbon
fiber fender flares that stretch outward to cover the 35-inch-tall Goodyear
Wrangler off-road tires and widened stance. The carbon fiber is also used
for the front fenders, extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and
tailgate. On the exterior the concept is painted in Dune Metallic. On the
interior the concept add more carbon fiber details on the dash, along with
black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching to those
trail runs more comfortable. At a glance, it's clear the Silverado ZR2
concept wasn't designed to haul flowers back from the nursery. With its
widened body, tall stance and powerful LS supercharged engine, it is ready
to hit the berms, dry washes and gullies of the Baja Peninsula. The
Silverado ZR2 is based on an extended cab/short box body. The custom
bodywork includes carbon fiber fender flares that stretch outward to cover
the 35-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires and widened stance. Much
of the truck's body is made of carbon fiber, including the front fenders,
extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and tailgate, which features large,
debossed CHEVROLET lettering as a nod to Chevy trucks of the pas The pickup
box, which is protected with a spray-on liner, features a unique locking
storage system mounted to the extruded aluminum Cargo Management System
rails from Chevy Accessories. Many of the carbon fiber parts, including the
hood, are clear-coated, rather than painted, to show off the intricate
weave pattern of the high-tech, lightweight material. The parts that aren't
clear carbon fiber are painted Dune Metallic, a color that blends with the
desert terrain. A large, more prominent grille is also part of the package
and is a vision of what designers would like to see in a production or
accessory part. It is very functional, feeding cool air to the 550-horsepower LS supercharged
crate engine from GM Performance Parts. The combination of 20-inch BBS RD
wheels -- reminiscent of historic Chevy truck wheel -- and aggressive
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires connect to the chassis via BDS shocks and a
four-inch lift kit to help negotiate those desert trails. The new front
fascia dramatically improves approach angle and skid plates protect the
chassis. The interior features more carbon fiber details on the dash, along
with black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching to
those trail runs more comfortable. "There's more to this concept than meets
the eye," said Dewar. "Some of the components are being explored for
possible inclusion in upcoming models."

132635 / 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmkj7a5
This sizzling black and orange 1979 Camaro is a documented, numbers
matching Z28 that is fresh out of a top-notch restoration which combines
the best virtues of originality with straight body and a fresh interior.
Built in Van Nuys, California and delivered to William H. Stahl Chevrolet
in Southampton, Pennsylvania this 1979 Z28 looks flat out sinister in its
slick coat of correct GM code 19 black paint. During its 32 years of
careful and limited road time, this F2 has never been wrecked,
significantly damaged in any way or torn apart for itemized repairs.
Recently, the car was fully restored to better than new condition and
presents exceptionally straight panel alignment which lends the fresh gloss
black basecoat/clearcoat a straight and smooth sheen from panel to panel.
Pop the hood on this cool '79 F-body and you'll find the cars original LM1
350 cubic inch small block V8! Mechanically, this 350 is a great sounding
motor that has been immaculately maintained throughout its entire
existence. Visually, it's a clean piece in a highly correct engine
compartment that presents extremely well. Just below the hood, a satin
black air cleaner pipes cool air into a correct Quadrajet carburetor that's
equipped with a correct yellow spring. Below that carburetor, the engine
block displays GM's traditional corporate blue paint from its intake to its
oil pan and sends Exhaust through
original cast iron Exhaust manifolds
that still retain their factory heat shields. At the back of the motor, a
correct Delco-Remy HEI distributor sends fire through gray suppression plug
wires, and at the front of the motor, a new battery and fresh cables join
correct hoses, correct clamps and fresh V-belts to provide rock solid
Underneath this Camaro,
straight and solid floorpans are bolted to a clean 32 year old chassis over
an original 3-speed turbo-Hydramatic
automatic transmission and a correct option GU6 10 bolt Posi-traction rear
axle with performance biased 3.42 gears. If you're a Chevrolet fan, then
you know any time an F option code is listed on the build sheet, it means
some serious suspension upgrades. According to this Camaros build sheet, it is
equipped with the Z28 specific F41 special suspension which for 1979, added
higher rate springs, stiffer valved shocks, and a thick rear sway bar. That
aggressive handling package is further augmented by correct J50 power front
disc and power rear drum brakes and factory equipped power steering. At the
center of the car, a fresh mandrel bent dual Exhaust system makes good use of an H-pipe and
factory replacement mufflers; and at the back of the car a new stainless
fuel tank sends fuel through new stainless fuel lines. Torque flows to the
pavement through beautifully restored 15 inch GM turbine wheels that wear
modern 225/70 BF Goodrich Radial T/As at all four corners.
This Camaro's well
maintained GM code 74R Carmine Red interior looks good and feels great. The
custom cloth seats benefit from firm padding and solid frames that are in
excellent shape, and great looking reproduction carpet is protected by
correct front and rear factory optioned floor mats. On the roof, a tight
headliner frames a round dome light that, along with all of the other
factory optioned accessory lights, works like brand new. Between the seats,
a red full length console houses a correct factory shifter in front of
chrome switches for the cars optional power windows. In front of the
shifter, a soft and warp free dash houses new for 1979 gauges above
controls for the cars HVAC system and a date correct radio. At the sides of
the seats, stainless trimmed door panels feature cool "Z28" emblems along
with stainless trim, chrome door handles and like-new door grabs. The
simulated rope steering wheel looks perfect atop its red tilt column, and
behind the rear seats, you'll find a restored trunk that contains a correct
14 inch Stowaway spare tire.
With an original numbers matching drivetrain and a killer color
combination, this '79 Z28 is the kind of car that you can drive and show
off for years while watching its value grow. Call, click or visit

ANTICIPO - LA NUEVA S10 EN ARGENTINA
En nuestro vídeo clip ampliamos la mirada de las más importantes
caracteristticas de la Chevrolet Colorado. La misma que fue presentada este
año, en el Salón Internacional del Automóvil de Buenos Aires.
2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept
Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has
yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the
Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer
is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no
firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or
efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for
enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the
20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes
its way closer to production.
Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to
give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the
Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker
has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures
the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have
heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all
together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the
States sometime soon.
