Hope You Love Gauges, Because Chevy's Giving You Gauges in the Colorado


Chevrolet is showing off a pair of Colorado Concepts that highlight the unique ways you can personalize it. Showed off at the 2019 Thailand International Motor Expo are the low-stance Chevrolet Colorado RS Street and the high-stance Colorado Panther.



The Colorado RS Street is supposed to be a “rule-breaking” pickup truck and with that, it’s supposed to evoke Chevrolet’s racing heritage, particularly, NASCAR. And so, what does Chevy do? They get a low stance pickup truck, lowered it further, slapped on 18-inch wheels, and thrown in a racing-style steering wheel, sports-style gear knob, brake, and clutch pedals, and of course, a fuckton of gauges. Then, they go so far as to say, “if it were street legal, you’d already be under arrest.” Yup, under arrest by the fashion police. Well, at least it’s got Brembo brakes (including a rear drum-to-disc swap) and Recaro bucket seats.



On the flipside, there’s the Colorado Panther. And next to the RS Street, this one’s an easier swallow. So, it comes as no surprise that Chevrolet sought GM Australia to create this one. With that, they added an off-road bash plate and Warn winch at the front. Then, it gets tubular side steps, a rear step package, LED light bar, and 17-inch wheels with BF Goodrich tires. Oh, and the suspension’s enhanced by Old Man Emu.
