The Z71 is the big boy of the Colorado range, wearing the most expensive price tag (4X4 Crew Cab Pick-Up, $54,990 man or $57,190 auto) but also arriving with the most kit.
That money earns you a soft-drop tailgate, 18-inch Arsenal Grey alloys, a new Sailplane sports bar and side rails, gloss black exterior door handles, mirrors and tailgate handle. You also get some style touches, like fender flares, a new front fascia, roof rails, hood decals and underbody protection. There’s also a 8.0-inch touchscreen with standard nav and a seven-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, push-button start and leather seats that are heated in the front.
A 2.8-litre Duramax turbo-diesel good for 147kW and 500Nm provides the power, paired with a six-speed automatic or a manual gearbox (440Nm manual).
Explore the 2020 Holden Colorado range
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. But by spending big on the Z71, you’re also unlocking extra kit, including front sensors, Forward Collision Alert (but not AEB - which is offered across the Ranger range) Lane Departure Warning and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
