Following the successful launch of the All-New Chevrolet Colorado into the Malaysian market in October last year, Naza Quest Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor and importer of Chevrolet vehicles in Malaysia, today introduces the X Edition consisting of three new variants of the popular pick-up truck: The Colorado X, Colorado X-Urban and Colorado X-ADV.

“It has been a while since we launched the new Colorado late last year in 2016 and we would like to add more vibrant and wider options for the consumer to choose from. This new variant shows how sleek or rugged the standard Colorado can become” said Farid Rosli, Vice President 1, Naza Quest Sdn. Bhd.

The concept of X Edition originates from the earlier fully suit up All-New Colorado concept truck which have been seen on display at every Chevrolet’s recent launch and roadshows. It came to no surprise that the Colorado concept truck caught most of the attention and inadvertently became a crowd-puller.

A fully suit up concept truck however may come on too strong and extreme for one’s liking, thus Naza Quest have established 3 new variants based on 3 different lifestyle profiles which best tailored for each of the X Edition mainly; Colorado X for exuberant who just wants to spice things up a little, urbanites for the X-Urban & lastly X-ADV for the extreme thrill seekers.

The three new variants (Colorado X, Colorado X-Urban and Colorado X-ADV) offers extra aesthetics over the standard model whilst still retaining its tough yet refined appearance. The Colorado X Edition accentuates black as its identity that speaks elegance, giving the overall pickup truck a strong aspect of robust and toughness, communicates power, strength and prestige.

The Colorado X, coming in as entry-level from the X Edition will see new sophisticated Black Emblems replacing the current Golden Bowtie both at the front and the rear tailgate, X-brand Hood & Bed Liner Decal, Black Hood Decal, Black Chrome Fuel Cover, Black Tailgate Decal with enlarged ‘COLORADO’ branding and lastly Black Coated Rims at selling price from RM113,248.28 onwards.

Given that the X-ADV caters mostly to outdoor adventurer, instead of offering a compilation of parts chosen primarily to increase the truck’s ride height, OME 4x4 Suspension provides a range of tuned and matched integrated systems, each offering optimum levels of comfort and noticeable improvements to the truck’s performance including load carrying capability and control characteristics.

All three new variant are equipped with an upgraded 2.5L Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that features a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT).

To lower its NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) level, the Colorado is fitted with a sound deadener around the injectors, revised body mounts, engine mounts, increased chassis rigidity and new cabin mounts. New front brake rotor compound and new suspension tuned with digressive shocks adds to the lower NVH level.
