Holden refers to the LSX (4X4 Crew Cab Pick-Up $46,990 - manual, $49,190 - automatic) as its entry-level tough truck, and there are plenty of stylish touches which make it stand out from the pack.
The basic features list matches the lower-spec trucks - so expect a 7.0-inch touchscreen with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, paired with a six-speaker stereo. You also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a USB charge point. Outside, you’ll find LED DRLs and powered body-colour mirrors, while in the cabin, it's cloth seats, manual air-conditioning and carpet flooring,
That “tough” part arrivers via the 18-inch alloys, the gloss black front grille, the black sport bar and fender flares, and the Colorado sticker across the back.

You get the same engine, though; a 2.8-litre Duramax turbo-diesel good for 147kW and 500Nm (or 440Nm with a manual) that can be paired with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox.
Holden's Colorado wears a five-star ANCAP rating right across the range, with the full-marks score awarded in 2016. The safety story consists of seven airbags, rear sensors, a reversing camera and Hill Descent Control, along with the usual site of traction and braking aids. There’s no AEB available, though.
