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."
Chevrolet Colorado VS GMC Canyon Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Comparison
In this video I give a full in depth tour and comparison of the chevrolet
colorado and gmc canyon. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of these trucks while showing details, over viewing
of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicles themselves. I
also show the engines and the details of them, start them up and see how
they sound under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of these trucks
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicles.
2012 Porsche 911 Turbo S ''Edition 918 Spyder''
The big news from Porsche lately is the go-ahead and pricing attached to
the production of the 918 Spyder. But if you read the fine print on the
official announcement, you may have noticed the German automaker's current
performance flagship mentioned.
To celebrate the launch of the 918 Spyder, Porsche is offering a special
edition of the 911 turbo S. Called,
appropriately enough, the 911 turbo S
"Edition 918 Spyder", it's essentially the same as the standard turbo S, only with some extra decals, special
colors and unique trim. The model will be available exclusively to
customers ordering the 918 Spyder, can be had in either coupe or
convertible, and carries the same sticker price.
So what's the point? To keep customers who are waiting for delivery of
their 918 happy in the meantime. Now that's one heck of an appetizer if
we've every seen one. And at $160k+ (on top of the $845k price of the 918)
one very pricey option as well.
