It's time to re-think everything you already know about trucks. Step inside
the new Colorado, and you'll find all the power and performance of a rugged truck.
But with enhancements like electric power steering and a redesigned interior, it's more refined than ever.
Under the bonnet, the Duramax diesel engine is tough and yet surprisingly quiet, even when working hard.
Electric power steering and a revised suspension tune make this truck ride and handle more like a car.

Hear what the media has to say about the new Colorado.
"The MY17 Colorado is hugely more refined, more comfortable, more precise, much quieter, and it has far more technology than the MY12 model..." - Robert Barry, Trademe.co.nz
"Ranger and Hilux had better be watching their rear-view mirrors..." - Paul Owen, Stuff.co.nz
"And six years ago the most luxurious of accessories in the utes would have been cupholders. Now you can have heated leather seats and reversing cameras." - Liz Dobson, Driven.co.nz
