2020 Holden Colorado now on sale in Australia

Holden has introduced the MY2020 Holden Colorado range, with the rugged LSX variant now a permanent part of the lineup. The Z71 and LTZ also continue on.

The MY2020 version brings in a lot of feature upgrades and enhancement pack options for customers. For example, there’s a new LTZ+ variant that comes with a genuine tow bar and has a re-rated payload of just under 1000kg, making it accessible to novated lease customers.

At the top of the range is the Z71 pack. It comes with bolstered wheel arches, a bash plate underneath, along with a new ‘soft-drop’ tailgate system. The Z71 also comes with 18-inch Arsenal grey alloy wheels, Sailplane sports bar and side rails with Z71 logos, gloss black door handles and side mirrors, and a unique front bumper bar with an integrated nudge bar.

Both the Z71 and LTZ now come with a premium DuraGuard spray-on tub-liner as standard. Holden says that just over 60 per cent of Z71 and LTZ buyers are fitting tub-liners, so for MY2020 it wanted to introduce a factory-fit item that offers quality and functionality.

As a result of intense customer research, Holden is also introducing a range of special accessory packs, including Tradie, Farmer, Black, Rig, and Xtreme. These bring in a range of unique options into one package. For example, the Tradie pack includes a towing kit, side and rear steps, 12V auxiliary power, floor mats, canvas seat covers, weather shields, and extra cup holders.

All models continue with the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine from the 2019 model. It produces 147kW, which is still above average for the class, as well as 500Nm for the auto versions (440Nm for manual). The auto torque figure is the highest of any turbo-diesel four-cylinder unit in the class.

All models also come with a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touch-screen media interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with USB, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. A rear-view camera is standard across the range, as well as LED daytime running lights, rear climate vents for the dual-cab models, and a limited-slip differential for the rear axle. Speaking about the new model, Peter Keley, executive director sales for Holden, said:

“The combination of these new enhancements for MY20 Colorado, along with the carefully specified accessory packs, will add a definite edge to what is already one of the best offerings in the light commercial segment.”

The new model is on sale now from the following prices (excludes on-road costs). See further below for highlight standard features for each trim grade. (Apologies for the lack of images. Holden only provided a handful of these pretty ordinary photos.)
