Holden’s dream ute just became a reality. Enter the Colorado Z71 Xtreme, Holden Colorado’s newest edition, based on the celebrated Colorado Xtreme concept vehicle, first unveiled at the Bangkok International Motor Show in 2016.
Designed and built by Holden’s talented Port Melbourne-based design team, the Colorado Xtreme showcased a wide range of concept accessories that captured customers’ imagination; accessories that have now inspired the new vehicle.
Holden’s Colorado Z71 Xtreme’s tough exterior loaded with accessories is matched by its off-road capability, ready to take on any terrain or driving conditions.
To help tackle all types of activity, the Colorado Z71 Xtreme, based on the top of the range Colorado Z71, adds a best-in-class winch system equipped with a heavy-duty bash plate, as well as 10,000 lb load capacity and a 30m synthetic line.
Colorado Z71 Xtreme’s high visibility LED light bar, combined with a winch bar, upgraded front suspension, all terrain tyres and vehicle recovery kit, add to its go anywhere capability, day or night.
Holden’s tough, limited-edition ute also boasts a long list of concept vehicle inspired genuine accessories, designed and developed in Australia.
“The top end of LCV market continues to develop, and we’re seeing a growing number of customers demanding greater off-road capability,” said Holden’s Product Marketing Manager, Andre Scott.
“The Colorado Xtreme was a concept car that resonated with our customers, and to not only put it into production, but elevate it, is very exciting,” said Holden’s Product Marketing Manager, Andre Scott.
“As a base vehicle, Colorado Z71 is already very capable, so we’ve expanded our Genuine Accessories range for additional off-road capability. Cue the Holden Winch system, the Xtreme’s hero accessory, which is a game-changer.”
“Backed up with a long list of accessories, customers can have confidence that their ute will not only look rugged but will be able to perform in the harshest of environments,” he said.
Equipped with a big 2.8 litre Duramax Turbo Diesel engine, 500Nm of torque* and a 3.5 tonne towing capacity, the Colorado Z71 Xtreme boasts the same impressive credentials of the Colorado Z71, with a new-look tough exterior and upgraded off road capability to match.
Colorado Z71 Xtreme comes loaded with value, priced at $69,990 driveaway, which includes over $19,000 of Genuine Holden Accessories. The Colorado Xtreme Z71 will be available at Holden dealers from 1 October 2018. Vehicles are exceptionally limited, so customers are encouraged to contact or visit their local dealer to register their interest to avoid disappointment.
