Holden has revealed specifications and pricing details for its upcoming 2013 Colorado pickup, ahead of its sales debut in the second half of this year.

Kicking off at $26,990 for the entry-level cab-chassis DX grade, the cost of entry into the Colorado range is now $1500 less than the current LX.

It's also $2000 more than Toyota's tubbed Hilux SR, but unlike the basic dual-airbag package fitted in that model HiLux, all Colorado models will get four airbags (dual front, side curtain) and electronic stability control.

While last year's Thailand floods has seen the showroom launch of the new model delayed, Holden says buyers can immediately pre-order the new car, getting in before the end of the financial year.

Holden has made a number of pre-production Colorado utes available for test drives at dealers around the country.

 

Mechanical Package

Depending on the variant, two turbocharged DOHC four-cylinder diesel engines will be offered, along with a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission. Details of these engines were revealed late last year.

In 2.5 litre turbodiesel form, available with a five-speed manual transmission only, the Colorado will offer 110kW at 3800rpm and 350Nm of torque from 2000rpm.

The larger 2.8 litre engine will deliver 132kW at 3800rpm with both transmissions, producing 440Nm of torque with the manual and 470Nm with the auto - the latter bettering the 3.0 litre diesel it replaces.

Fuel consumption figures are still be revealed, but Holden has confirmed a 3.5 tonne towing capacity for the 2.8 litre models and 3.0 tonnes for the 2.5 litre engine.

The six-speed auto is available as a $2000 option on every model except the entry-level DX cab-chassis, which can only be had with the five-speed manual.

The Colorado's suspension package includes independent double wishbone coil spring front suspension and a leaf spring arrangement at the rear, all tuned specifically for Australian conditions.

 

Features

The Colorado's full features list has not been released, although Holden has confirmed its standard features list will include Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, auxiliary, USB and iPod connectivity, power windows and two auxiliary power outlets.

Satellite navigation will be available as an option and in certain up-spec variants, to be confirmed closer to launch.

Safety features include six airbags (driver, front passenger, side curtains), along with electronic stability control and ABS.

For now, Colorado buyers miss out on a reversing camera - a feature available with the Hilux, Ranger, BT-50 and Triton - although parking sensors can be added as an extra.

A camera is expected to be made available sometime after launch.
