Holden Colorado 2017

The 2017 Holden Colorado range of configurations is currently priced from $19,999. Our most recent review of the 2017 Holden Colorado resulted in a score of 7.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Vani Naidoo had this to say at the time: With a tighter on-road performance, sharper design and fairly generous inclusions, the Colorado makes a strong statement. The Space Cab certainly has that rugged toughness and the power on tap needed from a hard-working vehicle but at just $3000 shy of the top-of-the-range 4X4 dual-cab Z71, you have to question the value equation. At the very least, handing over that extra money will get you a much nicer, more practical backseat without sacrificing performance.

This is what Vani Naidoo liked most about this particular version of the Holden Colorado: Quieter, punchy engine, Refined handling, Revitalised interior

The 2017 Holden Colorado carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Holden Colorado 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Colorado 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can I have a 2017 engine in my 2014 Holden Colorado?

    Since both variants of Colorado here use essentially the same engine, I’m not sure what sensors would be different and require changing. That said, the MY17 Colorado got recalibrated hill-descent and hill-start functions, so maybe there are some differences there.

    The major mechanical difference that I can see between a 2014 and a 2017 Colorado is probably the power-steering. In late 2016, the vehicle switched to an electrically-assisted system in place of the previous hydraulic set-up. So the later engine would probably lack the pulleys and mounting hardware for the hydraulic power-steering pump that your vehicle requires. Perhaps they can be removed from the old engine and fitted to the later one.

    Perhaps an easier solution would be to return the engine originally supplied and ask for the correct version for your car. If the engine supplied originally was not fit for purpose, then you’ve every right to ask for a replacement unit that is.

  • Holden Colorado 2017: Warranty

    Was the lift kit an approved Holden fitment? I don’t think it was, I think it was done at dealer level, and that’s where you should be venting your frustration. By fitting the lift kit you have modified the car and voided the warranty in that area of the car. Remember, the dealer is an independent business, it is not part of Holden. Go back to the dealer and get him to sort the problem, and if needed call in the manufacturer of the lift kit.
