The midsize pickup Chevrolet Colorado replaced the S-10 model in the program of the company. The official premiere took place at the January 2003 NAIAS in Detroit. Production was developed at GM plant in Shreveport, the State of Louisiana, in autumn 2003. The construction of Colorado is original and based on the new Cargo platform of GM. Types of cabins are single (Regular Cab), sesquialteral (Extended Cab), double (Crew Cab). The pickup went into the series with front or all-wheel drive, with a regular, extended or 4-door cabin and 3 settings of a suspension bracket: standard, sports or off-road.
It is equally good as for transportation of goods, for towing, and for daily use in city conditions. The first generation of Chevrolet Colorado is produced since 2004. In October 2011, in Thailand took place the world premiere of the second generation of Chevrolet Colorado and will be available in the twenty-six options of complete sets. Such big number of modifications is due to the possibility of configuring the cabin (the standard Single Cab, enhanced with "sesquialteral" door Extended Cab and Double Crew Cab), drive type (full or rear), engine, ground clearance and the level of equipment (LS, LT and LTZ). Under the hood of Colorado will be installed two new Duramax turbo diesel engines with the volume of 2.8 liter with 180 hp and 2.5 liter with 150 hp.
Engines will be aggregated with either 5-speed manual transmission or with six-band "automatic". The interior of has contemporary design trends and ergonomics with an abundance of places for luggage (in a double cabin there are 30 storage compartments, and in a single - 16). The seats of the pickup can be covered with not only vinyl or fabric, but also with leather. Even in the basic version available a radio-recorder with USB-port, frontal airbags and climate control, which is executed in the form of a round puck on the center console. In addition, it is worth noting the optional all-wheel drive with a two-stage transfer box, Anti Slip Regulator and anti-lock systems, as well as stabilization system and traction control technology that can slow down the car independently during the drifts in the high-speed corners.
