    Default 2012 Holden Colorado images leaked.

    CarAdvice.com.au have designed images based on GM patent images leaked from the US. So you can assume that these are 99% accurate.

    2012 Holden Colorado revealed in patent leak

    By Paul Maric | August 1st, 2010

    The latest leak from America’s patent office has unearthed GM’s new ‘small truck’ – more affectionately known as a Ute in Australia.
    The new Ute will be the bed for Holden’s Colorado and is set to appear some time in 2012.
    Design revisions see the Ute carry a more stylish look, moving away from the rough and cut lines of the current Colorado.

    Engine options are yet to be decided, but we can expect to see a continuation of four-cylinder turbo diesel and six-cylinder petrol engines.
    Safety is expected to be of paramount importance, so integration of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is likely to be introduced when the variant hits our shores in 2012.

    In this CGI it looks more the size of an F150 rather than a Isuzu Rodeo replacement. Yes I understand the new model would upsize but this looks a lot larger.

    I hope the seats are better in the new model. Holden Australia gave one to my work as a trial in the hopes that we'd order heaps but nobody liked it. Even the bloke who had it allocated to him preferred to drive a Ranger or Hilux. So it went back to Holden with a 'thank you but no thank you'.

    Tougher looking anyway.
    I spotted a 2010 F150 recently and I had a bit of a gawk over it and it certainly seemed no bigger than the new Ranger.

    seems to be more aggressive front, higher bonnet, with more fruit inside!.....anyone know the suspected tow capacity of them?

    the F150 is a pretty big tough truck in the beginning!!!.....a legend in it's own time!

    Maybe because it was made for Colorado it may not suit other places in the World?
