New Straits Times - - Cars Bikes & Trucks - Arman Ah­mad

Quest Sdn Bhd, the sole dis­trib­u­tor and im­porter of Chevro­let ve­hi­cles in Malaysia, in­tro­duced three new vari­ants of the Colorado truck ear­lier this week.

They are the Colorado X, X-Ur­ban and X-ADV.

“It has been a while since we launched the Colorado late last year and we would like to add more op­tions for the con­sumers. Th­ese new vari­ants show just how sleek or rugged the stan­dard Colorado can be,” said Farid Rosli, vice pres­i­dent 1, Naza Quest Sdn Bhd.

The X edi­tions are in­spired by a con­cept Colorado truck that was shown at re­cent Chevro­let launches and road­shows.

Naza toned down this con­cept truck and pro­duced three vari­ants for the mar­ket.

Ac­cord­ing to Naza, the Colorado-X is for cus­tomers who “just want to spice up things a bit”, while the X-Ur­ban is geared for ur­ban­ites and the X-ADV for thrill seek­ers.

The Colorado X, which is the base X-edition model, will have black em­blems re­plac­ing the golden Chevro­let bowties on the front and rear tail­gate, X-branded hood and bed liner de­cals, black hood de­cal, black chrome fuel cover, black tail­gate de­cal with en­larged ‘COLORADO’ let­ter­ing and black coated rims. Its price starts at RM113,248.

The Colorado X-Ur­ban, which re­tails from RM131,798, adds 20-inch black rims with rim cone, HT tyres and black fen­der flares.

The Colorado X-ADV, has a new sport bar, 16-inch black fuel rims with rim cone, mud ter­rain tyres, black side steps, black fen­der flares, black paint on the front grille, rear bumper, side mir­rors and door han­dles, and an Old Man Emu 4x4 sus­pen­sions sys­tem on top of the Colorado-X base. This model re­tails from RM145,578.

All of the three new vari­ants are equipped with up­graded 2.5L Du­ra­max diesel en­gines with Vari­able Ge­om­e­try Tur­bocharger (VGT). The en­gine pro­duces 180hp at 3,600rpm and 440Nm of torque at 2,000rpm and is Euro-4 fuel com­pli­ant.
