Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept Making European Debut in Frankfurt
"Chevrolet has built trucks right from the start and they are an essential part of our brand. Through its purposeful design, refinement and uncompromising capability, the Colorado Rally Concept creatively reinterprets our proud heritage," said Wayne Brannon, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Europe.
The double-cab pickup is fitted with permanent four-wheel drive, aluminum rims 18-inch double-ended (machining and polishing) and 305/60 R18 tires.
Power comes from a 2.8-liter turbodiesel, though no output levels were revealed, with the exception of the 5.5 horsepower winches that should get you out of a few tight spots.
Design highlights include LED lighting elements, Chevrolet's signature dual-port grille, a carefully sculpted hood and muscular fiberglass fenders. The concept’s body is coved with a triple coat of pearl white and sprinkles of 'golden' particles. Its roof and bumpers, the stylised roll-bar as well as the inside of its load bay, which carries a spare tyre and tool boxes, are made of charcoal-colored plastic.
Interior highlights include:
- A master switch that is integrated to the centre stack. It has two key functions: starting the engine and disconnecting every system in the vehicle, in case of an emergency.
- An "air boost" system that quickly cleans the cabin after the car has entered a dust cloud during an off-road chase.
- A hydration pack positioned behind each seat. A food solution is delivered to the occupants through a small tube.
