Despite being around for full six years, the 2019 Holden Colorado continues in the same way, featuring no important changes. The current generation of this capable truck has been around since 2012 and it still delivers pretty amazing performances in all aspects. If you are looking for a versatile truck, which is equally good on and off the road, this is the choice for you. It offers great towing capacity, spacious bed, as well as a pretty nice cabin, which is comfortable and full of quality materials.
2019 Holden Colorado Design
Let’s start this 2019 Holden Colorado review with most basic design characteristics. As you may presume, this model has a lot in common with its Chevy sibling. Two models are mechanically identical and also almost identical in terms of styling. When it comes to a variety of versions, the choice is pretty wide. If you are a working guy, there is an affordable, work-ready Single Cab model. A Space Cab is a bit of a compromise. This model comes with rear seats that fold down. Also, it comes with rear-hinged doors, which open only when front doors are opened. Finally, there is a Crew Cab model, with a quite common cabin that features four doors, two rows of seating and capacity for five. Of course, you can choose a chassis cab version or classic pickups. Two-bed sizes are available – long 6-foot 2-inches, or short 5-foot 1-inch bed.
No matter the version you choose, this truck is very comfortable. Spacious cabin in hi-quality materials will make your work easier, especially if you choose versions with more standard equipment. Seats are amazingly supportive for a truck, while the amount of legroom is also on a nice level. Still, rear bench won’t be very comfortable, even if you choose a Crew-Cab version.
When it comes to trim level organization, the new model continues in the same way. There are four versions in the offer. Base models are equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, smartphone integration etc. There is also a nice amount of safety features, which includes things like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, stability control, hill assist and much more.
Next in the line is the LT trim. It adds things like bigger alloy wheels, fog lights, automatic high beams etc.
The 2019 Holden Colorado LTZ is a bit of an upgrade. It comes with aesthetical upgrades like 18-inch wheels, chrome door handles, and mirrors etc. On the inside, you can count on a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, dual-climate control, navigation etc. In terms of safety, count on front parking sensors, lane departure warning, forward collision alert etc.
The 2019 Holden Colorado Z71 is an off-road version of the truck. You get numerous mechanical upgrades, mainly in terms of off-road suspension and tires. There are also roof rails, as well as several visual upgrades.
2019 Holden Colorado Engine
Unlike its sibling from Chevrolet, the 2019 Holden Colorado comes with just one engine in the offer. It is a well-known 2.8-liter turbodiesel unit, which delivers around 180 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. One of its main characteristics is great fuel economy. Also, plenty of torque guarantees excellent working capabilities. This truck can tow up to 7.700 pounds.
2019 Holden Colorado Price and Competition
