Holden Colorado LTZ 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8
The third model up the ladder in the Holden Colorado 2018 range is the LTZ, which is available in dual-cab guise.

The third model up the ladder in the Holden Colorado 2018 range is the LTZ, which is available in dual-cab guise in 4x2 and 4x4 trim (as you see in the images), and also as a space-cab 4x4.

Pricing for the Colorado LTZ is as follows: the most affordable version is the 4x2 double-cab pick-up, priced at $42,490 for the manual ($44,690 auto); then there are two options in the 4x4 version - the LTZ space-cab at $48,990 ($51,190 auto), and the LTZ crew-cab at $50,490 ($52,690 auto).

It packs the kit in compared with the lower models in the range, with noticeable exterior changes like 18-inch wheels (with a full-size spare), front parking sensors, chrome headlight bezels, LED tail-lights, an alloy sports bar, a soft tonneau cover, heated and folding chrome-finish side mirrors, and chrome strips on the door handles helping it stand out. 

Inside the LTZ gets an upgraded 8.0-inch 'MyLink' media interface with embedded sat nav, a seven-speaker stereo (in the dual-cab model), single-zone climate control, key fob remote engine start for the automatic (great for cold mornings), an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rain-sensing wipers, a chrome gear selector for the auto, sunglass holder, map lights, and electric driver’s seat adjustment.

That’s all nice, but the safety front is where the LTZ makes a strong argument. It has forward collision warning (not auto emergency braking - AEB), lane departure warning, tyre pressure monitoring.

If you choose the LTZ, you can also option leather seat trim and heated front seats, and that’ll cost you $1500.

As with every model in the Colorado range, the LTZ is powered by a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with 147kW of power (at 3600rpm) and 440Nm of torque (from 1600-2800rpm) when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. If you choose the six-speed automatic, the torque is bumped up to 500Nm (from 2000-2200rpm).

Towing capacity is 750 kilograms for un-braked trailers and 3500kg for braked trailers - and that applies to every version of the Colorado, which is impressive: many competitors can’t boast that, particularly about their entry-level utes
