Following the successful launch of the Chevrolet Colorado last October, Naza Quest Sdn Bhd today unveiled the X-Edition of the pick-up truck, which consists of three new variants – the Colorado X, Colorado X-Urban and Colorado X-ADV – priced at RM117,736.23, RM136,782.33 and RM150,920.58 respectively, OTR with insurance.
The concept of the X-Edition originated from the fully suit up Colorado concept truck which has been seen on display at all of Chevrolet’s recent launches and roadshows, which caught much attention.
However, the company felt a fully suit up concept truck might be too extreme for one’s liking, so three new variants were established based on three different lifestyle profiles.
The entry level from the X-Edition, the Colorado X, accentuates black as its identity, with new sophisticated Black Emblems replacing the current Golden Bowtie both at the front and the rear tailgate, X-brand Hood & Bed Liner Decal, Black Hood Decal, Black Chrome Fuel Cover, Black Tailgate Decal with enlarged ‘COLORADO’ branding and lastly Black Coated Rims.
Meanwhile, the Colorado X-Urban gets all the extra aesthetics of the Colorado X with addition of 20-inch Black Fuel Rims with Rim Cone, HT Tyres & Black Fender Flares.
The Colorado X-ADV, which also gets all the extra aesthetics, comes with a new Sport Bar, 16-inch
Black Fuel Rims, Mud Terrain Tyres, Black Side Step, Black Fender Flares, Black Paint Job on the Front Grille Panel, Rear Bumper, Side Mirrors & Door Handles, and lastly Old Man Emu (OME) 4×4 Suspension System.
As it is meant to cater to outdoor adventurers, the OME 4×4 Suspension provides a range of tuned and matched integrated systems, each offering optimum levels of comfort and noticeable improvements to the truck’s performance including load carrying capability and control characteristics.
All three variants are equipped with an upgraded 2.5L Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel Euro 4 compliant engine with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) which produces 180hp at 3,600rpm and 440Nm at 2,000rpm, mated to a six-speed automatic or manual transmission.
To lower its noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) level, the pick-up truck is fitted with a sound deadener around the injectors,
revised body mounts, engine mounts, increased chassis rigidity and new cabin mounts as well as a new front brake rotor compound and new suspensions tuned with digressive shocks.
Safety features include electric power steering (EPS), traction control system (TCS), panic brake assist (PBA), electronic
brake force distribution (EBD), electronic stability control (ESC), hill descent control (HDC) and hill start assist (HSA) as well as two front airbags, along with a knee airbag for the driver, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, front and rear park assist sensors and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, while auto rain sensor, auto headlamp, front-park assist and a reverse camera gives better convenience.
For connectivity, it is fitted with Apple Car Play applications and complemented by Siri Eyes Free and voice
