Opel Colorado Truck Is Wrong On So Many Levels

If a Chevrolet Colorado had a scion after a one-night stand in Europe with an Opel, then it would probably look something like this.

It’s called Opel Colorado, and it’s the creation of Kleber Silva, a Brazilian rendering artist who thought that it would be cool to imagine General Motors’ pickup truck with an Opel face, inspired by the Grandland X.

Now, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the recent news, Opel/Vauxhall moved under the roof of PSA earlier this year, and the two French brands know that they cannot compete against the likes of the Nissan Navara and Renault Alaskan, on the Old Continent (for now, at least).

This means that the chances of seeing this model on the streets are about as big as Skoda rebadging the Lamborghini Huracan, stripping it down, and selling it in emerging markets.

Those who still feel the need for a PSA pickup truck should know that the automaker has such a vehicle in its lineup, but it’s reserved for the African market, where it will go on sale this September as a Peugeot. Simply called ‘Pick Up’, it is based on the Chinese Zhengzhou Nissan Auto Rich New, and it appears to be stuck in the 1990s.

    Why is this “Wrong On So Many Levels”?

    • Knotmyrealname

      I agree. Why wrong? I wouldn’t have one, but Opel may be forced to provide one to compete against the likes of the Ranger, Amarok etc.

        pickup trucks aren’t huge sellers in Europe like they are in America and Australia… the latter of which is where Holden Colorados and Commodore Utes are some of the best sellers.

        • Knotmyrealname

          I’m aware of that, and BTW, you can strike out Commodore utes. They don’t exist anymore. Aussies will be buying only imported ‘utes’ from herein.
          But, my point was that I was contesting the ‘wrongness’ of the Opel ute, when other manufacturers are selling similar vehicles. I was actually surprised to read that the MB X-class was NOT going to be sold in the USA, but available in Europe.

      I mean, it’s a render (one of the good and realistic ones tho), so that’s wrong to start with, but beside that… I’m not sure what’s wrong with it either. I actually looks good and makes some sense.

  • roy

    This is the one of those free renders that actually maks sense

  • BobV12

    That could works well in western europe

  • ediotsavant

    Look better than the chevy

  • blizzy63

    So what? GM is GM. How is it wrong?
    I first saw this pickup in 2014 in Italy towing a boat trailer. It was called the Isuzu D-Max.
    Is that wrong too?

  • Biggsy

    Nothing wrong with that. Looks better than most.

      And I think it would be cool if you stopped fucking shouting every time you post on here !

      • Knotmyrealname

        He’s ‘special’ and I’m sure does it to bait the likes of you. I blocked him. Not actually seeing what rubbish he sprouts makes my time on this page more enjoyable.

          I don’t even hate all of his comments, just his stupid cap locks (and at this point I have to assume you are correct, that he does it for the attention).

  • gary4205

    This is one of the dumbest headlines I’ve seen here yet.

    Thisis a handsome design.

  • Kash

    I think it looks better than the Canyon or Chevy Colorado so I don’t see the problem.

  • no25

    the only thing wrong with it is that Buick may create one

  • Sam

    “So wrong on so many levels” and yet somehow the new Mercedes X-Class is so right and some sort of Halo model that must be lusted after.

    I’m glad Im smart enough to think for myself these days.

  • Randy Terpstra

    I guess since Opel has been gobbled up by PSA, they’d have to base their ‘Colorado’ off of these piece of work. No? 😀

    ..”Wrong On So Many Levels”?

  • RV9161

    I would expect something like this from carbuzz.com

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Ah GM…back at your old tricks again I see. Badge engineering at it’s finest.

    ” Zhengzhou Nissan Auto Rich New” :)))


    It’s only wrong because your renders are trash by comparison. lol

    (Ok, I’m done)
