Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Priced at Php 1,387,888.
The authorised distributor of Chevrolet in the Philippines, The Covenant Car Company, has unveiled the LTX version of the Chevrolet Colorado, following the launch of Trailblazer LTX. The Chevrolet Colorado LTX is priced at Php 1,387,888.
Exclusive features seen in the Colorado LTX's exterior include a powder-coated 3-inch steel tubing for the roll bar and horizontal tie-down bars located on the truck bed for mounting point accessories or securing gear and cargo. It also gets the same 3-inch steel tubing for side boards as well as the bull bar up front, lending additional protection in minor frontal impacts and makes for a good mounting point for extra lighting accessories. Other features include a black B-pillar and reverse parking camera.
Inside, the Colorado LTX gets jet-black leather seats with light gray stitching and perforated seat cushions, jet-black leather-wrapped steering wheel and door cards with light gray stitching, 'very dark neutral' with gray cubic print center console, auto dimming rear view mirror, and an HD in-dash camera with a 32 GB memory card.
Under the hood is a 2.8-liter Duramax 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, that produces 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque. It's capable of carrying up to 1 tonne of cargo on its bed, towing 3.5 tonnes and wade through water bodies up to 800 mm deep. Unlike the LTZ, the LTX is only available as a 4x2.
