    Colorado ZR2 Spotted in Australia

    Could Australia be getting the ZR2? Or the ZR2 suspension adapted to the local Colorado?

    Probably just more calibrations testing Holden does a fair bit of this for GM

    How do you know its not the next version or for sale somewhere else?

    It could be a mule for a new engine for all we know

    Its complete speculation either way just because we see a car in Australia wearing Holden plates doesnt mean we'll get it in Australia

    We've seen Buicks and Caddy's and all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff here over the years but virtually none of it ever gets sold here

    Holden kept its engineering center?

    Holden is supposed to be Australian Buick/GMC + a few Chevy's here & there.

    That would make more sense than Holden doing a modified Colorado

    I'd expect some of the gear off a ZR2 to make it onto the HSV version is that's the case

    But it will still be a modified Holden Colorado and look nothing like the ZR2

    I hope they find a way to get rid of the 2.8 and put a V6 diesel in there some day

    I don't see any other way to win points with a market you're all but abandoning than by producing goodwill cars, which usually end up as performance cars.

    I'll never understand why GM doesn't use all of the tools in its arsenal to their maximum ability.

    LGW ZR2 would be ballin.

    Gee the ones in that link are LHD. Could there be something a RHD market needs to have developed, tested and approved - like exhaust placement?
