New 2021 Holden Colorado has been spied a couple of days ago. The arriving pickup truck will get a minor facelift, similar to the Chevy and GMC trucks. General Motors provided a mid-cycle facelift for its Colorado pickup in the United States. Holden Colorado will get very similar upgrades. This pickup truck is sold in Australia, and it is one of the most popular buying options in the segment.
Many rumors predicted a total redesign for the 2021 Colorado. That will not happen, and the latest spy shots are proving that. Powertrain options should remain intact, and even the price won’t change at all. The interior will receive a couple of updates, just enough to keep the pickup truck as competitive as before.
2021 Colorado Spy Shots
The previous batch of spy photos were showing a heavy-camouflaged Colorado pickup. However, the latest batch shows the images with not that much camo. The 2021 Holden Colorado is wrapped will get various styling changes, and most of the novelties are visible. That includes the new lower and upper grille and the updated fog lamps.
Headlights are unchanged, which is the same treatment that U.S.-spec Colorado got. While the Chevrolet’s and GMC’s full-size models are getting larger features, Colorado in Australia will stick to the current plan with not so exterior features. Rumors about wider and longer Colorado were obviously false, and the arriving pickup will remain dimensionally the same.
On the inside, the 2021 Holden Colorado will mostly remain. The cabin design won’t change, and that includes the interior layout. Dimensions are the same, so Colorado will offer the same ample interior space as before. However, the manufacturer will update various systems, and it will probably provide a longer list of standard equipment.
Without a real competitor in Australia, Colorado is the best choice in terms of comfort and high-tech features. On top of that, Colorado will get the latest driver-assistance aids that will be optional in the base trim level.
List of Available Engines
The upcoming 2021 Holden Colorado will offer the same three powertrain options as the outgoing model. For a start, a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel provides 200 hp and up to 440 lb-ft of torque. According to Holden, this is the most popular choice among buyers.
However, if you are looking for a gasoline engine, a standard engine generates 200 horses and 192 lb-ft of torque. The optional 3.6-liter V6 gasoline provides more power, up to 305 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of twists. No matter which engine you opt for, Colorado pickup comes with 8-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Holden Colorado Release Date and Price
As for the price, the new 2021 Holden Colorado should not cost more than the outgoing model. That means you can get a new Colorado pickup truck for about $32,000. On the other hand, the range-topping trim level will cost slightly above $50k.
No doubts, Colorado will continue with good sales in Australia. While the American version will go in the first half of 2021, Australia-spec Colorado will arrive before that.
