2016 New Chevy Colorado and used Colorado on Sale at Jim Autos Thailand

The New Look of the Colorado
When Chevrolet launched the first generation of Colorado in Thailand, it gave the midsize pickup truck a macho face to match its US persona. The prominent front end, signed off with the signature horizontal chrome slab running the total width of the front, effectively matched the brand’s “Like a Rock” slogan. It helped the Colorado stand out in pickup markets like Thailand where its Isuzu D-Max cousin had a stronger presence.

In 2012 they have married the macho look with elements borrowed from Chevy Cruze and Chevy Malibu sedans which gives it a distinctive look.

All Thai Colorados have Diesel Engines

Diesel Chevy Colorado is offered in 2500 cc and 2800 cc four-cylinder Duramax diesels. The base engine displaces 2.5 liters and generates 150 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. 2800 cc version of the same engine is rated at 180 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the extra power, the 2.8-liter engine also gets a new six-speed automatic transmission. A five-speed manual is the only other transmission offered.

Colorado are Midsize Pickup Trucks

The 2013 Chevrolet Colorado is still very much a midsiz pickup truck, as many of its dimensions are marginally bigger than the previous model. The overall length of our extended-cab tester measures 210.5 inches, or about 3 inches longer than a current extended cab. It’s also significantly wider at 74.1 inches, although some of that is owed to the flares that come on the Z71 model. The only noticeably smaller measurement is the wheelbase, which measures just 121.9 inches versus the current truck’s 126-inch wheelbase.

Compared with the first-generation Chevy Colorado, the new truck’s power is impressive. There’s more than enough punch in real-world driving, be it under acceleration from a standstill or when overtaking others on the highway. It’s not overwhelming power, though, certainly not the kind of kick you might expect from a midsize truck with 346 lb-ft of torque on tap. According to Chevrolet engineers, the final-drive ratio could have been geared more toward performance, but they feared it would have backfired when it came to fuel economy.

A More Refined Colorado

Not surprisingly, the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado shows a noticeable improvement in driving dynamics. GM spent roughly $2B on the development of the Colorado’s new body-on-frame platform, so considerable research and development time went into getting it just right.

Chevy Colorado’s handling is much better than before, thanks to a stiffer body, more direct steering and wider tracks front and rear. There’s less bounce, too, even though it still uses a traditional leaf spring setup in back.

Colorado also comes with Electronic traction and stability control to control slippage on high speeds.

Better Value Than Ever
Colorado is a much better buy than before. Most of its improvement make it a good match to 2012 Toyota Hilux Vigo.

Chevrolet has more or less achieved its mission of making the Colorado quite carlike while retaining its ability to work hard like a truck. At this point, the only thing holding it back is the competition. New versions of the Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max and Mazda BT-50 have all arrived, so the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado has much to prove.
