The Holden Colorado ute replaced the long-standing Rodeo nameplate in 2008, after parent company General Motors lost the local naming rights that belong to engineering partner Isuzu.
The Colorado is what became of the split; even though Holden and Isuzu continue to sell their wares side by side, with unique styling and engines. Rather than continuing the Rodeo nameplate, the Isuzu version wears the D-Max badge.
Available in a range of trim levels - from the base Colorado LS (4X2) to the top Colorado Z71 (4X4) - and bodystyles, from single cab or space cab to dual cab with a choice of pickup tray of cab-chassis, the $38,990-$65,990 Colorado also forms the basis of the Colorado 7 SUV. A diesel engine is used across the range, and the Colorado is available with both two and four-wheel drive.
