Despite numerous speculations, the 2023 Holden Colorado will become a reality next year. According to our sources, the future truck is in the development stage and will ride on a new platform. We also learned that it will most likely share its design and mechanics with the Chevrolet Colorado model.
Furthermore, several photographs of the next-generation Holden Colorado were unveiled last week, and as can be seen, the forthcoming truck is considerably more attractive than before. In general, it shares the same design language as the Chevrolet Colorado, which debuted last month. In case you didn’t know, the Holden Colorado model is not in production for over a year.
Holden Colorado Redesign
The next 2023 Holden Colorado appears to be more similar to the Chevrolet Colorado model. Overall, it’s a pretty attractive truck, and its appearance varies greatly depending on trim level. The base model will get a redesigned grille, additional chrome elements, and new graphics for the LED headlights.
Furthermore, the manufacturer made some adjustments to the rear section, making the next Colorado look a little sportier than before. It has more appealing taillights and other cosmetic modifications. According to Holden, the truck’s size can vary based on the options. All extended-cab models come with a long box, while the crew cab model can have either a short or a long box option.
The interior of the new 2023 Holden Colorado is modern and it sports a familiar style. This pickup truck has a very spacious cabin that can accommodate up to five passengers thanks to a redesigned foundation. The new Holden will have the same short box and optional long box.
Tech-wise, the new Colorado truck will come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen system, the latest phone integrations, cloth upholstery, and Bluetooth. Air conditioning, two USB ports, Teen Driver mode, and other features will also be available. The manufacturer will provide more details soon, and we also hope to see more premium stuff and new driver-assistance aids.
New V6 Gasoline Engine
Given that the 2023 Holden Colorado will most likely ride on the new architecture, there will most likely be some changes beneath the hood. The latest generation employs a powerful 2.8-liter diesel engine capable of developing 200 horsepower and a torque of 435 lb-ft.
The new engine will most likely be based on the Chevrolet Colorado model. This powertrain features a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine with 310 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, as well as an eight-speed automated transmission. The Holden Colorado, like the Chevrolet model, will be available with AWD as an option.
2023 Holden Colorado Release Date, Price
The upcoming 2023 Holden Colorado will most likely return in the second half of next year. Unfortunately, the manufacturer is still keeping everything under wraps, and we hope to hear more in the coming weeks or months. The price has not yet been announced, but it is expected to be around $34,000.
The Holden Colorado will surely go on sale in Australia. However, its arrival in Europe is very likely. This model will, like before, attempt to compete with reliable trucks such as Nissan Navara, Volkswagen Amarok, Ford Ranger, and Toyota Hilux.
