2014 Holden Colorado Range Gets New Diesel, 6 Speed Manual, MyLink

2014 HOLDEN COLORADO

Holden has updated the Colorado ute and Colorado 7 SUV for the 2014 model year giving a significant lift to power and torque numbers, as well as safety features and standard equipment.

The big news is that the engine (still a 2.8 litre turbo diesel inline-four) rises from 130kw and 470Nm to 147kW and 500Nm.

The old five-speed manual for the Colorado ute has also been turfed in favour of a new six-speed, although torque output for manual-equipped models remains at 440Nm.

Another big upgrade is the addition of a seven-inch colour touch screen and Holden's MyLink infotainment system for both ute and SUV versions of the Holden Colorado.

Offering the same level of internet-enabled connectivity as the MyLink systems in the Barina and Trax, the Colorado's version of MyLink allows driver and passengers to listen to music streamed off the internet via Pandora or Stitcher, as well as a budget sat-nav system courtesy of BringGo.

Safety equipment is boosted by the addition of front side airbags on all Colorado ute variants bar the entry-level DX single cab-chassis, as well as a reversing camera for all Colorado 7s and top-spec Colorado LTZ utes.

The LZ and LT Colorado utes also have the option of a rear view camera, while the LTZ, LZ and LT utes all have reverse parking sensors as standard.

Trailer sway control is a new addition for the Colorado 7 and Colorado ute, and the ute also gains hill-start assist and downhill descent control as standard (except for the Colorado DX)

All of these upgrades come at minimal extra cost. The range structure is unchanged for both the Colorado 7 and Colorado ute, and prices are unchanged for all manual models. Automatic variants of the Colorado ute however now cost $200 more than the equivalent outgoing model.

    I hate it when a manufacturer has a vehicle with different power and torque levels for auto and manual. It's a sign of weakness.

        lol you still messed it up "The range structure is unchanged for both the Colorado 7 and Colorado ute, and prices are unchanged for all auto-equipped models. Automatic variants of the Colorado ute now cost $200 more than the equivalent outgoing model" prices unchanged for manuals? cool

    I bought an LTZ with leather last week, and am waiting on delivery. I expressed to the dealer that factory trailer sway control and the mylink would have been great additions.... Wish I had known about this, I would have waited. I did get a great price though, one im sure I would not have achieved with the new model.

    I wonder what a rear camer and mylink upgrade would cost...

      looking at the torque and kw you wouldn't be much better off ,max torque comes in much later in the game than a ranger and peaks then falls away, max kw at 3500 rpm, really I think Ford has it still. If you tow a lot Iwould buy the ford

    Now it makes sense. After all those specials they had with the colorados, they just want to get rid of the old stocks to pave way for the new ones. I just bought mine a month and a half ago. Bomer I should have known. How much does it cost to install a my link? Any ideas

    Where abouts can I find technical dimension on the space cabs to be able to fabricate a tray to the back of the chassis.
