THE AUSSIE-DESIGNED Colorado Xtreme, shown at the recent Bangkok International Motor Show, showcases Holden design talent and points to styling changes for the Colorado refresh due later this year.

While the Xtreme show vehicle is wilder than the upcoming production model, expect the grille, headlights and dash to carry on in the new Colorado. The Xtreme features a Safari bar with integrated LED bar and winch, 18in wheels with custom beadlocks, mud-terrain tyres, a suspension lift kit, snorkel, tough lower bumper, wheelarch flares and side cladding, a bonnet scoop, and a roof basket with an integrated LED light bar.

The new, squared-off dash boasts auxiliary gauges, a dash-mounted passenger grab handle and an inclinometer, as well as an 8in infotainment screen.
