HOLDEN added a limited edition Storm model to its Colorado line-up.
Despite its name, the Storm has landed on the market with minimal noise or disruption, and it adds but a few additions to the LTZ it’s based on – an integrated nudge bar, front seat heaters, leather upholstery and a bonnet protector.
The Storm nestles between the LTZ and Z71 in the Colorado line-up and is available in crew-cab form only.
Everything within the engine bay remains untouched, with the Storm utilising the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine familiar to the Colorado line-up. This four-cylinder generates 147kW and 440Nm (six-speed manual)/ 500Nm (six-speed auto).
Holden shifted 910 Colorados in September this year, giving it a 6.6 per cent share of the monthly 4x4 sales market.
On the year-to-date charts, 13,142 Colorados have left the showroom floor – a 2.0 per cent increase when compared to 2016 YTD results.
So far this year, the Colorado is the fourth best-selling vehicle on the 4x4 charts. It trails the Ford Ranger (28,026), Toyota Hilux (26,039) and Mitsubishi Triton (14,827).
Before on-road costs the Storm retails for $52,490 for the manual and $54,690 for the auto.
However, until October 31, the Colorado Storm – with either automatic or manual transmission – is currently available from only $51,990 driveaway.
The Colorado Storm comes with a seven-year warranty.
