The demise of Holden meant a lot of once-popular nameplates bit the dust in 2020 (and the Commodore was axed in 2019, remember), but none more so than the Colorado. It was one of the brand’s strongest sellers in its final years, but when the entire brand was shuttered there was no escape.
It may have had an American name, but the Colorado became a staple on Australian roads, with its wide range that extended from humble workhorse to posh Z71 and even the HSV-tuned SportsCat.
It isn’t the only Holden we’ll miss either, the Acadia was arguably the right SUV at the wrong time. Better executed and presented than the smaller Equinox, it could have helped attract families back to the brand if given more time.
