Aussie designs on next Colorado

Holden’s Australian design centre is keen to shape the next generation of the South American-penned Colorado ute. “We would love to do a future Colorado here in Australia,” a Holden insider told Wheels. “It would not happen for a long time… but it would be great for Holden to be the homeroom someday.” However, if it happens it won’t be for a while, with GM Brazil already working on a complete re-body of the ute. The Ford Ranger ute and Everest seven-seat SUV were both designed in Australia for a global showroom – a point not lost on the Holden design team.
