The production-spec 2016 Chevrolet Colorado has made its debut in Thailand, following its premiere as a near-production concept at the 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show in March.
As seen in the Chevrolet Colorado Xtreme concept at the said motor show, the facelifted Colorado receives a new face that draws cues from Colorado sold in the U.S. Some of the new features include sleeker headlamps with LED DRLs, wider grille and a new bumper design with round foglamps.
Inside, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado gets an all new dashboard design that, according to Chevrolet, is trimmed refined, soft-touch materials for a premium experience. It features an 8 inch MyLink infotainment display with support for Apple CarPlay, slightly updated instrument cluster and silver trim around the central HVAC vents and piano black trim around the gear selector.
Chevrolet has upgraded the 2.5L Duramax four-cylinder turbodiesel engine, and it now produces 177 hp at 3,600 rpm and 440 Nm at 2,000 rpm, a 16 hp and 60 Nm power bump over the outgoing model’s figures. Transmission options include six-speed automatic and manual gearboxes, in which the latter features revised gear ratios.
