The all-new 2021 Holden Colorado is getting additional upgrades. This pickup truck is one of the most popular models in Australia. For 2021, Colorado will get dimensional changes and it will be larger than its predecessor. As a result, a new model will be both longer and wider. Moreover, the latest exterior upgrades will finally refresh Colorado’s appearance.
Even the interior will gain more technology and more interior room. Overall, Colorado will be the best one yet, no doubt about it. Hopefully, Holden will manage even better sales but the price will have to remain as affordable as before.
Exterior Dimensions, Facelift
The upcoming 2021 Holden Colorado will look better and more modern than its predecessor. Thanks to the latest cosmetic upgrades, this pickup truck will finally gain a competitive appearance. However, the biggest upgrade is the latest dimensional changes. As a result, Colorado will be wider and longer. Still, exact dimensions have not been announced yet.
The front part will get a new grille that is also larger. The headlights are the same but the manufacturer will enlarge them too. The rear fascia comes with reshaped taillights and a modified bumper. Holden will opt for a slightly sportier vibe and new colors could be in the offer as well.
Inside the cabin, new 2021 Holden Colorado will get more equipment. However, the design of the cabin should largely remain. Still, more interior room and more technology should satisfy the customers. The thing is, Colorado has no real competition in Australia. For that reason, Holden opts for mid-cycle refreshments. The interior is the best in a segment but still, it has plenty of room for improvements.
Some parts are looking stylish, but some others are still looking cheap and out of date. Upper trim levels are a better option with more soft-touch surfaces and high-quality trim levels. Various cab configurations are available once again and generally, Colorado is better than before. Expect more safety systems and updated infotainment system.
Three Powertrain Options
The forthcoming 2021 Holden Colorado comes with the same 2.8-liter Duramax engine. This diesel unit is capable of producing 200 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. This is the most popular choice among customers. Gasoline is also available but it provides 200 hp and only 192 lb-ft of torque.
Still, an optional 3.6-liter V6 gasoline is a far better option with 305 horses. On top of that, its torque has been rated at 270 lb-ft of twisting power. All three engine options are using eight-speed automatic transmission and the AWD system will be optional.
2021 Holden Colorado Release Date and Price
In terms of pricing, next 2021 Holden Colorado will cost more than its predecessor. It makes perfect sense, given the number of updates. The price will now start at $32,000. As for the range-topping trim level, you can buy one for about $50,000.
Colorado will continue to dominate the compact pickup truck segment and it will firstly arrive in Australia. After that, New Zeeland and some other countries will be able to purchase new 2021 Colorado.
