Despite recent rumors, the 2023 Holden Colorado will go on sale next year. According to our sources, the future truck is in the works and will be built on a new architecture. It will also most likely share its design and mechanics with the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck.
Furthermore, numerous images of the next-generation Holden Colorado were released last week, and as can be observed, the upcoming truck is much more appealing than before. It has the same design language as the Chevrolet Colorado, which launched last month. In case you were unaware, the Holden Colorado model has been out of production for over a year and its future is still uncertain.
Holden Colorado Gets New Platform
The upcoming 2023 Holden Colorado appears to be more comparable to the Chevrolet Colorado model. Overall, it’s a really appealing truck, but the appearance varies widely depending on trim level. The base model will get a revised grille, more chrome components, and new LED headlamp graphics.
Furthermore, the manufacturer tweaked the rear fascia to make the next Colorado look a little sportier than before. It now features more appealing taillights and other visual changes. The truck’s size, according to Holden, can vary depending on the options. All extended-cab models have a long box, however, the crew cab model will be the most popular option, including both short and long box configurations.
The cabin of the next 2023 Holden Colorado is sleek and has a familiar appearance. Because of a new chassis, this pickup truck features an extremely spacious cabin that can accommodate up to five passengers. The new Holden Colorado will have the same short box and optional long box as the previous model.
The base Colorado pickup truck will offer a standard 7-inch touchscreen, the most recent phone integrations, and Bluetooth and cloth upholstery. There will also be air conditioning, Teen Driver mode, and other interesting amenities. Additional information will be released soon by the manufacturer, and we expect to see more expensive items as well as new driver-assistance technologies.
New Engine Option
Thanks to the new architecture, the new 2023 Holden Colorado will very certainly arrive with new powertrain options. Previous Colorado offered a 2.8-liter diesel engine capable of producing 200 horsepower and a torque of 435 lb-ft.
The new engine will very certainly be based on the Chevrolet Colorado. This powertrain consists of a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine with 310 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission. AWD will be an option on the Holden Colorado, as it is on the Chevrolet counterpart. We also expect a new optional engine, but a hybrid powertrain won’t be on offer.
2023 Holden Colorado Price, Release Date
The forthcoming 2023 Holden Colorado will hit the dealerships next fall. However, the manufacturer is keeping everything under wraps for the time being, and we hope to hear more in the following weeks or months. The price is still a mystery, but we believe the new model will cost around $35,000 or slightly below that.
The Holden Colorado will very certainly be available in Australia. Its arrival in Europe, on the other hand, is extremely likely. The brand-new model will rival old competitors such as Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.
