Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in advance of the 32ndBangkok International Motor Show, where it is making its global public debut on 24 March. The the basic proportions and form of the show truck previews the next-generation Colorado pickup truck, which goes on sale in Thailand later this year.

“Thailand is the world’s largest market for midsize pickups, so this is the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado,” said Mr. Martin Apfel, president, GM Thailand/Southeast Asia and Chevrolet Sales. While the new Colorado was developed within GM’s global product development organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it would meet local market needs in Southeast Asia.
The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-ride all-wheel-drive chassis and comes with large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. Power comes from an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability, in addition to enhancing drivability and fuel efficiency.
The interior is designed to deliver a premium and inviting environment, with a greater feeling of spaciousness than is typically found in midsize trucks. Contrasting trim used with the light-colored leather seating, dark wood trim accented with chrome and low-gloss and soft-touch materials are used throughout for a premium feel. A number of storage compartments are located throughout the interior, including a covered center bin for concealment of valuable items, and a large, dual glovebox.
Additional features include a dual-zone, digital climate control system and the latest in “infotainment” technology. The show truck highlights an ergonomically positioned 7-inch LCD display in the center stack, for easy viewing and intuitive control of Web access, navigation, music and hands-free phone features.
