Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has introduced a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with roadside assistance for its Colorado SportsCat performance pick-up.

The coverage applies to all new and demonstrator models, including SportsCat and SportsCat+ variants, sold from July 1, 2018.

According to HSV managing director Tim Jackson, the addition of a standard five-year warranty will help boost the appeal of the recently-released dual-cab.

"We've been delighted with the level of acceptance of our first foray into the 4x4 pick-up market, and the availability of a five year warranty, with five years roadside assistance, will only further strengthen the vehicle's appeal" said Mr Jackson.

As previously reported, the Colorado SportsCat is the first vehicle that HSV has turned out since Commodore production was moved overseas.

The hot pick-up comes in two tiers, the entry-spec SportsCat ($60,790 plus on-road costs) and the slightly-warmer SportsCat+ ($66,790).

While the SportsCat is no quicker than the Colorado Z71 it's based on, it does come with a number of bespoke design elements and significant off-road handling upgrades.
