Chevy To Tease 2017 Colorado Facelift With A Tough Concept In Bangkok

A concept showcasing the facelifted Chevrolet Coloardo for overseas markets has been teased, with the release of a single blacked-out image by GM ahead of a debut in Thailand later this month.

The pickup-truck appears laden with accessories including knobbly off-road tires, an elaborate roof storage setup, snorkel, black wheel arch flares and blacked out power-dome on the hood. Sweeping LED’s housed in squarer headlight assembly seems to indicate the styling of the American Chevrolet Colorado will be largely be adopted for this facelift.

This is backed up by spy shots which circulated earlier this month, where a completely undisguised prototype of the Thai-built, facelifted Colorado was snapped. Although the styling will be brought into line, it’s unlikely the engine options, including the 3.6L 305hp V6, will follow suit, sticking with a predominantly diesel lineup elsewhere.

The Colorado is manufactured in Brazil and Thailand- the latter being the main export source to other markets, such as Australia where it is sold as the Holden Colorado, competing with sister car Isuzu D-Max, which differs only in details and engines.

In Brazil, the car is sold with the evocative Chevrolet S10 nameplate and features a 2.4-litre engine optimized to run on sugar cane ethanol.

The concept will be revealed at the Bangkok Motor Show that opens its doors on the 23rd of March until April 3.
