In October 2011, in Thailand took place the world premiere of the second generation of Chevrolet Colorado and will be available in the twenty-six options of complete sets.

Under the hood of Colorado will be installed two new Duramax turbo diesel engines with the volume of 2.8 liter with 180 hp and 2.5 liter with 150 hp.
