Chevrolet Colorado Xtreme Study Previews The Global Model’s Facelift

Chevrolet has blown the wraps off the Colorado Xtreme, a thinly disguised study for the upcoming facelift of the international version of GM’s pickup truck, at the 37th Bangkok International Motor Show in Thailand.

A quick reminder here that it’s a different model than the North American Chevrolet Colorado, while to add to the naming confusing, in some markets, the global Colorado is sold as the S10, including in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, and in Australia and New Zealand, it’s badged as the Holden Colorado.

If you look beyond the dramatic additions, including the snorkel, hood scoops, rugged bumpers, wheel arch extensions, side plates, a safari bar, 18-inch wheels in full-mud terrain tires and the two tone interior upholstery, what you’re left with are the cosmetic changes that will be applied to the production 2017 Colorado that was recently spied undisguised in China.

On the outside, this translates into a boxier front end design that’s more in line with other recent Chevrolet products, including the American Colorado

“Inspiration came from many sources,” said GM International Vice President of Design Michael Simcoe. “In particular, we looked at the U.S. market, where Chevrolet is the leader in truck design. Looking at the Xtreme, it is clear that the North American market influenced many of the styling cues. The end result is a serious pickup with no compromises.”

GM also gave the interior a makeover with an updated design for the dashboard that gains the newest MyLink system equipped with the latest Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity technology.

The production 2017 Colorado should follow by early next year.
