New Chevrolet Colorado X variants debut. From RM113,248
Malaysian Chevrolet distributor Naza Quest Sdn Bhd updated the Colorado pick up truck range for the local market by introducing three new variants – Colorado X, Colorado X-Urban and Colorado X-ADV. All three were launched during the Naza Merdeka Auto Fest held in the Naza Auto Mall, Petaling Jaya.
Mechanically, all three share the same heart, which is an upgraded 2.5-litre Duramax turbo-diesel four-cylinder mill with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT). It now outputs 180hp and 440Nm of torque, and it can be paired with either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission options. Other revisions include new sound-deadening injector surrounds, revised body mounts, engine mounts, increased chassis rigidity, plus new cabin mounts. Much of these were aimed at lowering this pick up truck’s noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels.
Oily bits aside, each variant is equipped with a bevy of unique exterior accessories and trims to set each other apart. Starting with the entry-level Colorado X variant, it now sports black Chevrolet emblems and badging all-round, followed by a bevy of black-themed trims and decals and black-painted wheels. Opt for the mid-range Colorado X-Urban and it gains further with larger 20-inch wheels plus a set of black fender flares to match.
Capping off the range is the Colorado X-ADV variant that’s loaded with even more exterior enhancements over its two siblings to entice off-road enthusiasts. Most notable of which is its aggressive and lifted stance courtesy of an Old Man Emu 4x4 suspension system. Complementing that are a set of off-road tyres wrapped around 16-inch wheels finished in black, as well as a volley of exterior trims.
Aside from the exterior enhancements, all three share identical cabins that features plush leather seats and an intelligent infotainment unit primed with Apple Car Play and Siri Eyes Free voice recognition functions. Lastly, all three also adopt the same standard-equipped safety features. The list here includes airbags, ABS, traction (TCS) and stability control (ESC), hill descent control (HDC) and hill-start assist (HSA), followed by Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert systems amongst others.
Available through authorised dealers nationwide, the new Chevrolet Colorado X is priced from RM113,248 onwards. Its X-Urban and X-ADV siblings, on the other hand, command higher starting prices of RM131,798 and RM145,578 respectively instead.
