Holden Colorado Xtreme to premiere in New Zealand

Holden Colorado Xtreme

Colorado Xtreme goes from concept to reality – but only for NZ… for now.

REMEMBER the Colorado Xtreme concept revealed to the world back in 2016 at the Bangkok International Motor Show?

Well, Holden has taken note of the public’s increasing appetite for premium utes and put into production the Colorado Xtreme, which – at this stage – is exclusive to the New Zealand market.

Expected to be in NZ showrooms by year’s end with a $79,990 price tag, the Xtreme is kitted out with a sports bar, black tubular side steps, a rear step, a soft tonneau cover, a tow bar, a black roof tray, and a winch bar with a winch wire harness kit. COLORADO is stamped across the tailgate, while the whole lot rides on 18-inch black alloys surrounded by all-terrain rubber.

“The Xtreme is no longer just a show concept, it’s a fully functional ‘real McCoy’ four-wheel drive and we expect people to put it to the test in a variety of day-to-day, on and off-road situations,” Marc Warr, Holden New Zealand National Marketing Manager, told Driven.co.nz. “We have incorporated a number of highly desirable accessories to create the Colorado Xtreme and anticipate there will be significant interest in the new model.”
