The Chevrolet Colorado range in Malaysia now has a new range of three variants in the form of the X Colorado X, Colorado X-Urban and Colorado X-ADV. The concept of the X Edition originates from the Colorado concept truck which have been seen on display at various events. Public response was so positive and strong that the company decided to reproduce one as a commercial version for sale.
Introducing the new Colorado X Editions, Farid Rosli, Vice President 1, Naza Quest Sdn. Bhd., said that this new range of variants shows how sleek or rugged the standard Colorado can become. “A fully-equipped concept truck, however, may come on too strong and extreme for one’s liking, thus Naza Quest has created 3 new variants based on 3 different lifestyle profiles. The Colorado X is for exuberant who just wants to spice things up a little while urbanites will appreciate the X-Urban. The X-ADV is for the extreme thrill-seekers,” he explained.
All three new variants offer extra aesthetics over the standard model whilst still retaining a tough yet refined appearance. The Colorado X Edition uses black as its identity that speaks elegance, giving a strong aspect of robust and toughness, power, strength and prestige.
The X-Urban is one step up from the Colorado X with the addition of 20-inch Black Fuel Rims with Rim Cone, HT Tyres and Black Fender Flares. The Colorado X-ADV gets an exclusive sport bar, 16-inch Black Fuel Rims, mud terrain tyres, black side steps, black fender flares, black finish on the Front grille, rear bumper, side mirrors and door handles. Naza Quest has also included an Old Man Emu 4×4 suspension system which offers optimum levels of comfort and noticeable improvements to the truck’s performance including load-carrying capability and control characteristics.
All three variants are powered by an upgraded 2.5-litre Duramax 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine that has a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT). The Euro-4 compliant engine produces 180 bhp/440 Nm and customers can choose to have a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission.
Standard safety features with the Colorado include Traction Control, Panic Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist in addition to 2 front airbags, along with a knee airbag for the driver. There’s also Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, front and rear park assist sensors and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
For connectivity, the Colorado offers Apple Car Play complemented by Siri Eyes Free and voice-recognition software.
