Chevrolet Colorado Pickup – 2016 Auto Expo

Chevrolet, at the just happening Delhi Auto Expo, is also displaying few of their global products to woo the Indian audience. One among those displayed is the Colorado ‘High Country’ pick-up variant in fabulous bright orange-yellow paint-job with black graphics.

This is the second-generation ‘born as pick-up’ model, based on which the Chevy Trailblazer that is currently available in India has been designed. The pick-up truck at the auto expo is merely an eye-candy model and GM has no plans to launch the model in India.

The Chevy Colorado is built on the GM’s body-on-frame global truck architecture with a wheelbase of 3,258 mm. This platform is also used by Isuzu D-Max V-Cross that is also on display at the 2016 auto expo. The pick-up measures 5,347 mm long, 1,882 mm wide, and 1,781 mm high. The ‘High country’ variant displayed here is actually a sporty edition available in select markets including Thailand and Brazil. Over there, the car is powered by 2.5-litre and 2.8-litre Duramax diesel engines paired to either 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions. In fact, the latter 2.8-litre engine is available in the Indian-spec Trailblazer range.

It is also to be noted that the US-spec Colorado pickup is an altogether different car with more modern and muscular styling and advanced equipment list.

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
