Hot from the launch floor, Naza Quest Sdn Bhd, the official sole-importer and distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in Malaysia has just taken the covers off the all-new Colorado 4×4 pickup truck in Malaysia.

The eye catching new headlamp is designed with a glass tube type (Tube LED) LED daytime running lights to further add to the premium styling of the vehicle. What’s more, these new headlamps are also equipped with a follow-me home system, an enhanced passive safety that keeps the headlamps on for a scheduled preferred time even after the ignition is turned-off.
The all-new Colorado comes in 3 choice of engines – a 2.5L Duramax Turbo-diesel Fixed Geometry Turbocharger (FGT), a 2.8L Duramax Turbo-diesel Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) and the all-new 2.5 Duramax Turbo-diesel with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT).
