The Holden Colorado LSX 4x4 is a limited edition version of the Colorado ute based on the LS 4x4 grade and priced from $51,945 for the crew cab pick-up and $50,055 for the crew cab chassis.

Those prices are for the LSX with a manual transmission, but just add another $2200 for the automatic.

You’re paying $7000 more for the LSX than the LS it’s based on but in return you’re getting more equipment than that entry grade ute. The crew cab pick-up gains 18-inch black alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres, black fender flares and grille, an extended sports bar, soft tonneau and decals. The crew cab chassis gets the wheels, tyres and flared fenders but also a heavy-duty genuine Holden aluminium tray.

Other standard features include a 7.0-inch touchscreen with a reversing view camera, a six-speaker stereo, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, digital radio, USB port and leather steering wheel, hill descent control and hill star assist, rear parking sensors and LED DRLs.

The LSX 4x4 has the same engine as the rest of the Colorado range – a 147kW/440Nm 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel – with a choice of six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission sending drive to all four wheels.

While the LSX is low on advanced safety equipment and there’s no AEB, there is traction and stability control, ABS and seven airbags.

The LSX is covered by Holden’s five-year unlimited km warranty.
