And limited to just 1,000 units.
In a bid to improve the value proposition for 2018, Holden has introduced the limited-run Colorado LSX for this model year, capped at just 1,000 units. The Colorado LSX promises to offer that customised look without compromising any practicality or denting your wallet (too much), with manual dual-cab models available at just $44,990 drive-away.
Available also as a dual-cab chassis, the Colorado LSX packs a number of unique aesthetic changes to underline its special nature. Opting for an LSX bags you 18-inch alloys with all-terrain tyres, a blacked-out grille, black fender flares, matte-black sports bar out back with ‘Colorado’ branding, and a soft tonneau cover.
Just 800 Crew Cab models and 200 Crew Cab Chassis variants will be made, with the latter coming in at $50,055 (RRP). Motivation will come from the usual 2.8-litre turbodiesel mill with 147kW and 440Nm, with power going to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. An automatic can be optioned on for an extra $2200, and that’ll bump up torque to a meaty 500Nm.
The Colorado LSX maintains the same 3.5-tonne towing capacity as the standard model, as well as the 5-star ANCAP rating that all Colorado models enjoy.
“We know a lot of our Colorado customers want to make their truck standout from the crowd, and accessories are a great way to do that. The Colorado LSX combines some of our most striking and impactful accessories, inspired by the 2016 Colorado Xtreme concept car, while maintaining exceptional customer value.” — Mark Harland, Executive Director (Marketing), Holden GM
The Holden Colorado LSX has a special deal at the moment, too: Bag one before the end of the month, and you get three years of free scheduled servicing and five years roadside assistance, on top of the five-year manufacturer warranty.
