Newly styled show truck gives a sneak peek at the next-generation midsize pickup

Chevrolet has revealed the Colorado Show Truck before the Bangkok International Auto Show where it is making its public debut. The new Colorado will go in sale in Thailand later this year, but will not be available in the U.S. until 2014.

The concept truck features an extended-cab body that sits atop a high-stance all-wheel drive chassis and has 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. The engine is a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine that produces broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability.

Chevrolet is extremely excited about the new Colorado and its debut in Bangkok.

“Thailand is the world’s largest market for midsize pickups, so this was the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado,” said Susan Docherty, vice president, GMIO Sales, Marketing and Aftersales. “Trucks have been part of Chevrolet’s core for nearly all of its 100-year history. The Colorado reinforces that heritage with expressive design refinement and uncompromising capability.”

The new Colorado is definitely a head-turner and consumers in the U.S. are extremely excited about its future. The exterior features a streamlined cab collar design with a body color hard tonneau cover on the bed of the truck. Gray accents on the side, front and rear lower moldings are included as well as 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a “liquid metal” finish. There are even outside mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators.

As for the interior, Chevrolet was sure to include one of their signature designs; a dual-cockpit instrument panel design. There is a motorcycle inspired, three dimensional gauges that are in the instrument panel which makes a sporty appearance. Leather seating and dark wood trim accented with chrome adorn the inside of the new Colorado as well.

Chevrolet continues to live up to their reputation as a master truck producer and designer with the Concept Colorado. Unfortunately we have to wait a few years in the U.S. to get our hands on one, but there is no doubt that in the meantime Chevrolet will have improved on this model.
