Chevrolet Colorado: Variants explained

chevy-colorado-6

The local pickup truck segment is packed with offerings that bank on practicality. That’s why Chevrolet Philippines, under The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), thought it would spice things up with a pickup truck designed and engineered "for those who dare."

The Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in the Philippine market back in 2012 and has been an industry staple ever since. Dubbed the “king of torque,” the Chevrolet Colorado was one of the first to offer 500Nm of torque in the segment. It also delivers 200hp, thanks to its American-truck DNA and the 2.8L Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel VGT engine it hides under the hood.

During its Philippine debut, the Colorado piqued the interest of many truck buyers because of its potential. It has since stood its ground against strong segment contenders like the Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara, Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi Strada, and the Mazda BT-50.

Today, the Chevrolet Colorado can be had in seven variants. We break them down to help hopeful Colorado owners put a finger on which trim level suits them best.

And oh, it also only has one electrical outlet.
