During the last twelve months the Holden Colorado range has firmly established itself as one of the bestselling nameplates in Australia, and with the upcoming 2015 Model Year changes, the trend is set to continue. Holden Director of Marketing, Bill Mott said the 2015 Model Year upgrades improved Colorado's urban drive comfort and further increased its widespread appeal.
"The Colorado range has a great reputation for off-road driving and we wanted to translate this to urban and highway driving too. Whilst customers enjoy the reassurance they get from driving a very capable 4x4, they should also enjoy driving it on everyday errands," Mr. Mott said. "The reduction in noise and vibration and the introduction of a tailored comfort suspension on the Colorado LTZ and Colorado 7 LTZ vehicles ensure that driving the 2015 Colorado is both a comfortable and enjoyable experience in any environment.
"Finally, as we remain committed to provided outstanding customer value, I am pleased to announce that we have managed to do all this whilst maintaining our 2014 prices in addition to continuing to run our very competitive capped price servicing offer." The lifestyle focused 2015 Colorado truck LTZ and Colorado 7 LTZ both adopt a new 'Comfort Suspension' tune comprising of revised spring rate and damper tune in addition to a new stiffer front stabiliser. 'Comfort Suspension' improves ride balance and isolation resulting in a smoother, more comfortable ride, particularly on urban roads.
The same models also receive an air of luxury with interior enhancements including the introduction of new, heated leather appointed seats (optional on Colorado LTZ Crew Cab) and a more premium cabin feel with upgraded Jet Black soft touch surface fascias and centre console. The entire Colorado range also benefits from refinements to Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), and a new acoustic package - developed after intensive testing at Monash University wind tunnel facility.
The new acoustic package reduces airborne noise and vibration making highway and urban driving quieter and a more comfortable and enjoyable experience, with the Colorado now as at home doing the grocery run as it is conquering the all-terrain. Furthermore, with the more refined Crew Cab and Colorado 7 vehicles also bragging a five star ANCAP safety ratings, drivers can breathe easy knowing that their passengers are safe.
The updated Colorado range also offers a stealth-like new exterior paint colour - Satin Steel Grey.
