Holden Colorado Z71 Xtreme pricing and specs confirmed

The Z71 Xtreme is based on the Colorado Xtreme concept vehicle that was unveiled at the Bangkok motor show in 2016.

Holden has torn the covers off its new high-spec Colorado pick-up, the Z71 Xtreme, available from October of this year in “exceptionally limited” numbers at $69,990 driveaway.

For perspective, the Xtreme is $15,000 more expensive than the Colorado Z71 Crew Cab 4x4 upon which it is based, with the full-time range-topper priced at $54,990, but that excludes on-road costs.

Holden justifies the Xtreme's pricetag by pointing out that it is equipped with “over $19,000” worth of genuine Holden accessories.

Specifically, the Xtreme gains a high-end winch system with a heavy-duty bash plate, as well as 10,000lb load capacity and 30 metre synthetic line.

The uprated off-roader is also treated to a high-visibility LED light bar and winch bar, upgraded front suspension, all-terrain tyres and a vehicle recovery kit.

Based on the Colorado Xtreme concept vehicle that was shown at the Bangkok motor show in 2016, the new production vehicle borrows a handful of Melbourne-designed genuine accessories.

Features include a roof tray kit, rear steel step, black tubular side steps and Colorado badging on the tailgate. Features include a roof tray kit, rear steel step, black tubular side steps and Colorado badging on the tailgate.

“The Colorado Xtreme was a concept car that resonated with our customers, and to not only
put it into production, but elevate it, is very exciting,” 

Like its Z71 donor-vehicle, the Xtreme is powered by a 2.8-litre Duramax turbo-diesel engine that produces 147kW and 500Nm, and boasts a 3.5 tonne towing capacity.

It will only be available with the six-speed automatic transmission found in the Z71.
