The Holden Rodeo was a staple of The General's local line-up from 1980 all the way through to 2008, before an acrimonious split from long-time partner Isuzu required Holden to relinquish the name.
The first generation sold between 1980 and 1988, while the second gen Rodeo was built between 1988 and 2003. Isuzu actually stopped selling the vehicle in Japan in 1994, but it continued on as a Rodeo until the introduction of the third generation ute in 2003. Production for the third generation ute switched from Japan to Thailand, but after Isuzu decided the enter the Australian market on its own, Holden was forced to rename its ute the Colorado – only to watch Isuzu name its ute the D-Max. The Rodeo ranges in price from $6,990 for the Rodeo LX to $20,000 for the Rodeo LT (4x4).
