Let GM decide the fate of North American Colorado midsize pickup. Now, back to our Colorado.
Not 2 years from now that this first gen Thai-built Colorado will end of its time (I don't think I'll spoil anything today). From late March of this year to the next year we can count that it is now its 7th year. At least not ranked last position in Thai one tonner pickup segment at all.
Just before 31stBiMS, Chevrolet just decided to update the Colorado again after not update anything for entire 2009/2552. With newer look and new features. By change the front corner lamps from orange to white, and revamp front fascia just a little bit (I'd say it would be more appropriate to the Holden badge rather than bowtie logo). The black one as seen on this ad is Z71 4x2 with optional built-in type DVD player: same size as D-Max but not navigation system (no back-cam assist either); yet not for all models. The point of this ad is: with this feature, it gets enormous with moods from whether the movies. In fact, that meant you're driving while with movie playing, just like you're driving along with the events of the movies. But of course, driver better not look at the screen while driving.
Other things we needed to know is: Z71 4x2 (X-Cab and C-Cab) with 3.0 4JJ1-TC now comes with optional automatic transmission. This time of update also include the CNG models. But what is optional to all models is the G80 Diff-Lock.
May the Best Truck Win!
Chevy Colorado G80 test.AVI
Went threw the twist ditch in 2wd to test out the G80. You can see when I first go in the passenger rear tire goes up in the air. For the ones who say it's not in 2wd, you can see the rear tire spin @17 sec then the G80 grabs.

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."
