Also reflects changes on the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and 2016 Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Last week, the facelifted Holden Colorado’s front-end was revealed in an unofficial image. The picture not only show design changes in the Colorado pickup facelift, but also indirectly pointed out the design changes to be made in the Holden Colorado 7, its SUV version.
Now a report from CarAdvice reveals the mechanical changes in both of the facelifted models.
Citing an undisclosed top-level company official, the report says that Holden will fix everything that’s acknowledged internally as not being satisfactory or up to the mark. The improvements are being worked on at the company’s Lang Lang Proving Ground in Victoria, where changes are being carried out to the suspension and steering of vehicles. The suspension and steering systems have been significantly revised for improving comfort, while notable NVH improvements have also been made, the report elucidates.
The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine’s outputs will be changed from current 147 kW ( hp) and 500 Nm. There may be some changes to the throttle response as well as to the torque delivery in low engine speeds.
Inside, Holden may equip the facelifted Colorado and Colorado 7 with a new infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration compatibility, the report adds.
