The 2017 Holden Col­orado ute has been re­vealed ahead of its launch next month, show­ing off a cos­metic up­date as well as ben­e­fit­ting from some new safety kit.

For the first time, the pop­u­lar Col­orado will be avail­able with For­ward Col­li­sion Warn­ing and Lane De­par­ture Warn­ing, as well as front and rear park­ing sen­sors.

A rear-view cam­era will also be avail­able across the range as stan­dard.

The Holden MyLink touch screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem now boasts Ap­ple CarPlay and An­droid Auto apps. The truck has also un­der­gone an in­te­rior re­design.

Holden sales ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Peter Ke­ley be­lieves the re­designed Col­orado is a key ve­hi­cle in Holden’s fu­ture prod­uct port­fo­lio, and says its new styling and tech­nol­ogy are sure to be a hit with cus­tomers.

“Col­orado has res­onated well with cus­tomers in a seg­ment that has al­most dou­bled in sales in the last 10 years, and we’re con­fi­dent the new 2017 Col­orado will build on this and re­de­fine cus­tomer ex­pec­ta­tions of what a truck can be,” Ke­ley says.

In a bid to of­fer more in the way of ac­ces­sories, the range of fac­tory op­tions has also in­creased.

Ac­cord­ing to Holden ac­ces­sories en­gi­neer­ing man­ager Joseph Basile, the ex­tended range of ac­ces­sories avail­able on the 2017 Col­orado has been in­spired by the Col­orado Xtreme show truck and will bet­ter al­low cus­tomers to tai­lor their ve­hi­cle to their spe­cific life­style.

“When we re­vealed the Col­orado Xtreme show truck back in March, we re­ceived over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive feed­back, and that has driven us to make sure we in­cluded as many of the con­cept ac­ces­sories as we could into the fi­nal Col­orado pro­gram,” Basile says. “In the com­ing months, the 2017 Col­orado will de­liver a plethora of all-new ac­ces­sories to its range, in­clud­ing a sa­fari bar, fender flares, LED driv­ing lights, 18-inch wheels and all-ter­rain tyres, so we’re con­fi­dent there’s some­thing for ev­ery­body.”
