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.

The interior of has contemporary design trends and ergonomics with an abundance of places for luggage (in a double cabin there are 30 storage compartments, and in a single - 16). The seats of the pickup can be covered with not only vinyl or fabric, but also with leather. Even in the basic version available a radio-recorder with USB-port, frontal airbags and climate control, which is executed in the form of a round puck on the center console. In addition, it is worth noting the optional all-wheel drive with a two-stage transfer box, Anti Slip Regulator and anti-lock systems, as well as stabilization system and traction control technology that can slow down the car independently during the drifts in the high-speed corners.
