Chevrolet Colorado Concept Revealed

As promised Chevrolet revealed the new Colorado show truck ahead of its debut at the Bangkok International Auto Show in Thailand. And first things first, it looks awesome!

The concept model previews the the next-generation Colorado midsize pickup truck. Not sure how much the finished product will stay loyal to this design, but even if it inherits 50 percent of it, it’ll b great. The Colorado will first go on sale in Thailand in late 2011 which according to Chevy is the world’s-largest market for midsize pickups.

With the concept car designers had no boundaries so they’ve put 20-inch wheels on it, and gave it an amazing high-stance profile and an extended cab. Although it might look that it’s designed for more showing off than doing hard work, but Chevrolet promises it has excellent cargo and towing capability. It is powered by an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band and benefits form AWD system.

This pickup seems to be a perfect rival for Ford Ranger Wildtrak.

Additional exterior details include:

* A streamlined “cab collar” design with a body-color hard tonneau cover on the bed

* Gray accents on the side, front and rear lower moldings

* 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a “liquid metal” finish, with Stone Gray color wheel ports

* Cooper 285/50R20 ZEON LTZ tires

* Outside mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators.

Inside, there’s another signature Chevrolet cue: a dual-cockpit instrument panel design. It flows into the doors, with continuous lines that create a floating, wraparound effect, amplifying the Colorado’s feeling of spaciousness. Ice-blue lighting and high-quality, “double-faced” leather-trimmed seats add sophistication and refinement. Additional features include a dual-zone, digital climate control system and the latest in “infotainment” technology. The show truck highlights an ergonomically positioned 7-inch LCD display in the center stack, for easy viewing and intuitive control of Web access, navigation, music and hands-free phone features.
