New Chevrolet Colorado Roughens Up with Double-Cab Rally Concept

|

The Buenos Aires Motorshow is proving to be an important event for GM as after the debut of the Chevrolet Cobalt Concept, the Detroit automaker released the first details on its second design study, the Colorado Rally Concept.

We first saw the Colorado as single-cab concept truck at the Bangkok International Auto Show earlier this year.

The Argentine study is a double-cab racing version of that concept fitted with a bevy of off-road accessories and components such as the front and rear bumper hooks and tow winches, an adjustable suspension that allows the driver to increase the ride height by 5 inches and special acrylic windows.

The Colorado Rally Concept is powered by a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine coupled to an all-wheel drive system and rides on massive 18-inch machined aluminum wheels shod in 305/60 R18 tires.

The production version of the all-new Colorado in both single- and double-cab formats is slated to debut later this year.

The 80's guy is probably european, because as far as I know America loves trucks.

Americans love slow,big, outdated tech trucks.
This is too smart of a truck for Americans.

"outdated tech"

What outdated tech?

Tell me why U-joints are outdated and then justify why every automaker uses them.

Tell me why leaf springs are outdated, and then find a damper and coil that can take the same abuse of a leaf spring without punching through the strut tower.

Tell me why pushrods are outdated, and then tell me why cams pre-date pushrods...or where the torque on a over-square engine is.

Go on then.

Really it is small by American standards, but the Argentine and Brazilian market where it will replace the aging S10 it is considered average pick-up. Competing with the Hilux, Amarok, Frontier and new Ranger who was also launched at this event in Argentina. Remember that it was developed by General Motors of Brazil.
