About The Chevrolet Colorado

When the first Chevrolet Colorado went into production in 2003 they were initially classed as compact pickup trucks.

Chevrolet brought this model and the badge-engineered GMC Canyon onto the market to replace the aging S-10.

General Motors had developed the Colorado chassis with Isuzu who launched their own model using the technology called the I-Series.

GM also launched another car using the chassis through its Hummer brand called the H3, the third generation of the civilian Hummer SUV.

All of these GM models were manufactured in one plant in the USA (in Lousiana) except for the export models that were assembled in Thailand.

Originally the Colorado was offered with a wide range of engines and transmissions but those options were reduced greatly as it entered its second generation in 2011.

The Chevrolet and GMC versions of the truck were mechanically the same but the GMC version was offered with greater features as standard with some options not available on the Chevy.

From 2008 onward the truck was sold as the Holden Colorada in Australia until the Holden name was phased out during 2020.

In 2011 the second generation was introduced to the market and once again built on a similar chassis that was co-developed with Isuzu.

Now the truck was classed as a mid-size pickup truck to move away from the shrinking compact pickup truck market.

This new platform would also be put to work in the Trailblazer SUV, one of a small breed of SUV still boasting offroad potential in today’s market.

A high-performance trim was also offered with the second generation Coloroda called the ZR2.

This ZR2 had a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 or a 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine with many improvements made to the chassis for offroad performance.

Dynamic suspension and electronically locking differentials helped the car achieve the best traction and stability with little input from the driver.

Outside, the ZR2 features bigger tires and design changes to help it climb steeper inclines without damaging the bodywork.
