CLOSE UP: Chevrolet Colorado SUT

In this blog entry, I'm posting a CLOSE UP of Chevrolet Colorado SUT (Sport Utility Truck).  I went to their Launch Today at TTDI Showroom.  I was there about 2pm.  The car came with 3 engines.
1) 2.5LT 5sp Manual CRDI Fixed Geometry Turbo.  150hp@3800rpm / 350Nm@2000rpm.  Manual Control Air-cond.  Price OTR: RM93,000 (Private registration)

2) 2.8LT 5sp Manual CRDI Fixed Geometry Turbo 180hp@3800rpm / 440Nm@2000rpm.  Price OTR RM98,500 (Private registration)

3) 2.8LTZ 6 Sp Auto + Shiftronic CRDI with Variable Geometry Turbo.  180hp@3800rpm / 470Nm@2000rpm.  EXTRAS: 6 ways Power adjustable front seats, Steering wheel Audio control + Cruise Control, Electronic Climate Control Air Cond.  Price: RM108,700 OTR Private registration.

All three came with LSD and Elec 2W/4WD shift switch, Hydraulic Power Steering.  60:40 split foldable rear seatback, Radio + 3D Sound stage, USB/CD/MP3 and Bluetooth + 4 speakers (6 speakers for LTZ Auto), 3 years OR 100,000km warranty.  Suspension for all 3 models: Front, Independent Double wishbone and rear consists of Multi-leaf springs.  Safety wise, it came with Dual Airbags, ABS+EBD and HBA (PBA, ESP, CBC, TCS only for LTZ Auto). 

Colour choices: White, Royal Grey, Sizzle red, Auburn Brown and black sapphire.

Unfortunately, I have to place booking before I can test drive.  So I can't comment much on its ride and handling.  

Well, there's a saying, a picture's worth 1000 words.  Here are the photos:

That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry.  An original Jeff Lim's production, my original work.
