Yesterday, we posted on the all new Chevrolet Colorado pick up truck, which made its world debut in Thailand. Looking very much like the Colorado Show Truck from the Bangkok Motor Show, Thai sales of the new Colorado will start on October 17.

Our northern neighbours get to choose from 26 combinations of Colorado models, powertrains, cabins, and ride heights. Two new Duramax diesel engines will be available, a 2.8L with VGT, 180 hp and 470 Nm, as well as a 2.5L with 150 hp/350 Nm.

The good news here is that the Colorado is coming to Malaysia in two months time, according to franchise holder Naza Quest Sdn Bhd. The company says that the CBU from Thailand Colorado will arrive in double cab form, in LT and top spec LTZ trim levels. Both 2.5L and 2.8L engines will be available, in both auto and manual transmissions. Vehicle deliveries are expected to start in mid December.
