Holden Colorado Z71 Pickup

If utes or pickups could be classed as good looking, then it would probably mean that they would have tough, masculine lines and provide muscly, grunty looks.  If I was asked which ute/pickup is the best looking for 2015, I would be seriously thinking about giving this award to the new Holden Colorado Z71 Pickup.  4WD traction means that this handsome machine can go just about anywhere most people are going to want to go off-road.

The new Holden Colorado Z21 Pickup has a nice distinctive, bold appearance.  And, when fitted with roof rails, side boards and large 18-inch alloy wheels, the Holden Colorado Z21 really grabs your attention.  Some of the other snazzy details that catch your eye include, leather appointed seats, an integrated nudge bar, a body-coloured sailplane and aggressive sport decals.

Something as bold and as good looking as the new Colorado Z71 Pickup has got to have some grunt under the hood; and we’d be right with this assumption.  A massive 440 Nm of torque is available for any work tasks and play.  This sort of pulling power makes the 2.8-litre, 147 kW Turbo-diesel Colorado Z71 ideal for towing, and Holden claim that it’s good for towing up to 3.5 tonne!  That’s impressive and class leading, so if you’re going to be doing a lot of towing for work or holidays, this is the ideal machine for you.  This engine muscle is very streamlined, and though rugged, Holden has captured this raw power in a sophisticated and comfortable driveline.  Smooth power delivery is taken care of through a six-speed auto, although you can opt for a six-speed manual gearbox instead.

A lot of Holden Colorado Z71 Pickup buyers will have intentions of using this as a dual purpose vehicle.  Work sites are never that glamorous, but the Colorado Z71 will give you a lift with its rugged ability for towing and carrying heavy loads on the wellside deck at the rear.  Once the work is over, the Colorado Z71 Pickup becomes a very comfortable and practical recreation vehicle.  Superb 4WD capabilities make this a great vehicle for getting to the remote places one has a habit of finding in the outback.
