2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, EngineNow, Until recently, most trucks in Thailand were no frills, work themed models designed and built to be affordable and tough enough to handle rugged off road conditions. But with the rollout of the all new, global editions of the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and the Ford Ranger, that’s starting to change as automakers look to gain more sales from the urban consumer. Previously, Thai trucks especially didn’t have the interior and ride comfort levels of a car, rear leg- and shoulder room for three adults, carlike interior features, or the all important cabin noise insulation from the hard working diesel engine. There’s one other factor needed for urban success: It is essential to reduce the cost of running diesel powered pickups, which consume more diesel in start stop city traffic.

Most of these issues have been resolved with the introduction of Chevy’s new Colorado. The engineers have taken part of the new Chevrolet Captiva (a crossover sold in Europe, Asia, and Australia) dashboard and the gauge cluster from the Camaro to make the Colorado cabin user-friendly and modern. Chevrolet has introduced a new pair of class-leading diesel engines from GM’s powertrain factory in Rayong, Thailand, as well as debuting a segment-first truck-chassis system. This redefines the global Colorado as more than just a traditional pickup: It’s a pickup truck with an SUV interior and ride.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Interior :
2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Interior. – The interior will combine the best of Chev designs, with the Thai pickup bearing a striking interior look to the Camaro, complete with twin pod instrument panel and meaty steering wheel with redundant controls for audio and Bluetooth. The centrestack looks very familiar to Chevy truck owners, with the typical radio over a round cabin temperature control centre. The dash is topped by a covered bin.

Colorado is based on a new global midsized truck architecture developed in Brazil, with local engineers tailoring the truck to fit the individual markets. “Chevrolet Colorado Chief Engineer Roberto Rempel and his team lived in Thailand during the Colorado’s development,” said Brad Merkel, global vehicle line executive. “.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Exterior :
2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Exterior. – In terms of design the Colorado resonates with strength due to its wide, high positioned body that ‘appears tightly wrapped over the chassis’, and besides the Pepperdust Metallic exterior paint highlighted by various polished aluminum accents, the new pickup is also featuring GM’s dual-port grille, a pair of large headlamps, integrated side steps, full LED taillights., and LED turn signals on the outside mirrors.

Under the skin is an SUV style control arm suspension with coil springs and a stabilizer bar for the front. The rear has a semi elliptical leaf spring live axle. On tarmac, the Colorado turns into corners very well, considering its tall 70-series tires, and it never feels lethargic when hustled along in city traffic. Its straight-line cruising stability is also exceptional, as we managed an easy 85 mph or so on the highway with negligible wind and tire roar. The fingertip feel through the power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering is smooth and well-damped, and responsive front-wheel disc brakes (with standard ABS with PBA) return the braking performance of a SUV.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Engine :
2012 Chevrolet Colorado Global Edition Engine. – GM has unveiled the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado ahead of its global public debut scheduled to take place at the Bangkok International Auto Show. The 2012 Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup truck featuring an extended cab body sitting on a high-stance AWD chassis, uses 20 inch wheels wrapped around off-road tires, and extracts power from a 2.8-litre turbo diesel plant for which output remains unspecified.

Another surprise is the automatic six speed gearbox, which is exceedingly smooth with no hint of an abrupt kick down prevalent in other pickup trucks. Even in manual mode, the gearbox works well, and its electronics help prevent balky gearshifts (an indicator will appear on the information display). The engine we tested is a 2.8-liter common rail turbodiesel (180 horsepower at 3800 rpm with a peak torque of 347 lb-ft at 2000 rpm), and proved powerful enough to haul our fully loaded Colorado up the steepest slopes and around the tightest corners as we raced up the Mae Salong hill to Doi Chang Moob on the outskirts of Chaing Rai to the Thai Burmese border.
