    Holden Unveils New High-tech 2017 Colorado

    Redesigned Holden Colorado set to make its public debut at tonight’s final 2016 State of Origin game
    New high-tech Colorado boasts rear view camera and Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto across the range
    New levels of active safety including a forward facing camera with Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning
    Largest range of Colorado Genuine Accessories ever
    The new 2017 Holden Colorado will make its public debut at ANZ stadium tonight as the QLD Maroons battle the NSW Blues in the final game of the 2016 State of Origin series.

    The redesigned Colorado is introduced with fresh styling, an extended range of accessories and a raft of high-tech additions from advanced connectivity to active safety features.

    Holden’s Executive Director – Sales, Peter Keley, said the redesigned Colorado is a key vehicle in Holden’s future product portfolio and its progressive new styling, improved driveability and leading technology content are sure to be a hit with customers.

    “Colorado has resonated well with customers in a segment that has almost doubled in sales in the last ten years, and we’re confident the new 2017 Colorado will build on this and redefine customer expectations of what a truck can be,” Mr Keley said.

    “Not only does it come with fresh new styling, it also offers car-like refinement, ride and handling as well as vehicle technologies unique to this segment including Apple CarPlay® and Android® Auto connectivity.

    “Colorado is also the only vehicle in the 4×4 utility vehicle segment to offer remote window activation – a feature we expect to be popular with customers in hot climate parts of Australia.”

    I think we can consider "car like" to be CUV like in the current market. Looks good though.

    Yes. This is the continuation of a trend that started long before the CUV even existed. To be specific, pickup trucks are replacing passenger cars in both form and function. Today's standard pickup truck has a 4-door crew cab with seating for five, automatic transmission, air conditioning, and infotainment technology up the wazoo.

    To me the front end is a bit fussy

    Too much chrome much like the new Ranger and Triton front ends

    Must be a Thai thing.....

    I like the dash and center console set up. Would be a nice MCE for the Canyon & Colorado for 2018. I especially like that the 4WD dial is on the console and not next to the same-sized headlight control on the dash like the twins now have.

    Have the media driven this yet? When does the embargo end... they were talking about an August launch but I've seen available September... Car advice has a bit of a teaser pic circulating and Holdens insta shows them... they can't be too far away?
