Colorado dressed up and everywhere to go
Whatever your sense of adventure, you can create your very own Holden Colorado to suit from a vast range of Holden Genuine Accessories.
Just ask pro-surfer Matt Wilkinson who took a Colorado Z71 4x4 Crew Cab Pickup and together with a little help from Holden’s own Design Director, Richard Ferlazzo, created the ultimate surf truck.
With its 2.8-litre diesel engine, with up to 500Nm of torque, mated to the six-speed automatic transmission and shift-on-the-fly dual range 4WD system, the Colorado is already well prepared for getting to secret surf spots off the beaten track. But for Wilkinson he was after a little bit more to truly make it his own.
“I recently visited Holden’s design studio in Melbourne and got to spec up the Colorado to be perfect for off-the-beaten-path surf trips and it looks pretty awesome,” Wilkinson says.
“It’s got a safari bar, some underbody protection and all-terrain tyres as well as some stuff that makes it look cool.”
Looking menacing in Mineral Black, Wilkinson added an LED light bar, tow bar, tubular side steps, rear steel steps and a bonnet bulge to complete his Colorado that stands out for form and function.
“Colorado is such a versatile truck with a huge accessories range and to have the chance to show that off with Wilko is really exciting,” said Ferlazzo.
“I know Wilko is a great surfer but I think the truck he’s put together is something special so maybe when he retires, there’s a job for him in car design! “
But you don’t need to be a pro-surfer or employ Ferlazzo to create your own ideal Colorado.
Whatever your needs whether it’s heading into the outback for an extended camping trip, hooking up the boat for a weekend away fishing at your secret beach location or hitting the high country for some back country snow action, Holden has just the right accessories to tailor the Colorado just for you.
