Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm – Motorshow Focus
Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!
Features only visual updates, mechanicals remain the same.
General Motors Thailand has launched a special variant of the Chevrolet Colorado at the 2015 GIIAS Surabaya Auto Show. The special variant is called the Chevrolet Colorado High Country Storm and it gets some distinctive visual touches to differentiate itself from the standard model.
The exterior receives black accents at several places. The headlight surrounds, grille, side mirrors, B-pillar and sports bar with High Country badge have all received a black finish. The shade of Anthracite has been used to color the subtle bull bar, roof rails, rub strips, running board and rear bumper. The styling is furthered by the presence of black body decals and special 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior features the ‘Brown Stone’ leather upholstery and comes with the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system on a 7-inch touchscreen.
Motive power to the pickup is provided by a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine churning out 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed automatic gearbox that can be had in 2WD and 4WD configurations.
The pickup is priced at 999,000 Baht (INR 18.68 Lakh) for the 2WD and 1,059,000 Baht (INR 19.8 Lakh) for the AWD. The vehicle is manufactured at the automaker’s Rayong facility, and rivals the Toyota Hilux Revo TRD and Ford Ranger Wildtrak.
