Chevrolet’s 2013 Colorado pickup has recently undergone its final testing in Thailand. The totally undisguised 2013 Colorado was spotted on a Bangkok parking lot. It’s a known fact that Chevrolet’s Asian division has built the compact hatches that Europeans and Americans currently drive. The pickup will be produced in Rayong. Of course, Thailand would be the first market to receive the new pickup.
Its range includes crew-cab and extended-cab variants that are powered by GM’s new fuel-efficient, four-cylinder Duramax diesel engines. Chevrolet Colorado Chief Engineer Roberto Rempel and his testing team stayed in Thailand for the duration of the vehicle’s development to make sure that the local market needs in Southeast Asia and abroad are met.
Rempel said that this “world-class truck” will appeal to buyers in the dense truck markets of Southeast Asia as well as other parts of the globe. He added that the typical buyers of this vehicle are looking for a “workhorse” that could be used daily.
General Motors raises the bar for its new Chevrolet Colorado. The latest pickup truck is the most elegant, high performing and toughest one they ever built. A choice between two new Duramax turbo-diesel engines gives the complete combination of fuel economy and performance in different level of specifications.
After its global launch in Thailand, the Chevrolet Colorado will immediately go on sale. This is part of the Chevrolet’s $2-Billion project for 5 different continents worldwide.
Consumers will be delighted with the new Colorado’s assortment of features. For over one hundred years, GM has been known for its innovative standards. The new generation model will be offered in 4-wheel and 2-wheel drive configurations.

Furthermore, he stressed that the new model exemplifies the country’s outstanding expertise in car manufacturing. This puts Chevrolet ahead of other brands whether globally or locally.
