For Filipinos who love to travel and take the family anywhere, essential stuff are needed to make each journey worthwhile. Many types of vehicles can do the job, but a pickup truck like the Chevrolet Colorado can do it with style and an unbeatable level of versatility to back it up.
Named after one of the United States’ most beautiful scenic spots, the new Colorado has an impeccable payload capacity and off-road capabilities perfect for the challenging paved and unpaved roads in the Philippines. Its huge rear cargo area is one of its main features, which is then accentuated by an interior cabin space that fits 5 in comfortable leather. It also has an assortment of digital entertainment that passengers can connect to.
The new Colorado has a choice of 2 Duramax diesel engines for the long haul, a 2.5L or the heftier 2.8L. These are then coupled to either a 6-speed AT or 6-speed Active Select (with Manual Mode). These can come in either the 4x2 or a 4x4 variant.
In its standard form, the Colorado pickup truck already evokes a very masculine aura. But Chevrolet Philippines took it a step further at this year’s Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) with the introduction of a new variant, the Colorado Tracker Edition 4x4.
Chevrolet circulated a teaser photo of a concept truck to grace their booth at this year’s Bangkok International Motor Show. From the looks of it, we can guess that this could be an all-new (or at least a tricked-out) version of the Colorado pickup that’s shown here. Or is it?
The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), the official local distributor of Chevrolet vehicles, has expanded their market reach in Northern Luzon with the opening of Chevrolet Ilocos Norte – their 25th dealership in the Philippines.
