Graphite edition adds value

Written by 

A limited-edition Holden Colorado — just 100 units nationwide — will become the prized possession of a select bunch of Holden fans when it goes on sale this month. 

The Holden Colorado Graphite Limited Edition builds on the popularity of the 4 x 2 light commercial vehicle segment and delivers owners $10,000 of added value thanks to an enhanced specification.

 Sales of 4 x 2 vehicles have tripled over the last five years, from 5000 in 2012 to 15,000 during 2017. 

Holden says customers love to accessorise and customise their vehicles, so the Limited Edition will offer several accessories for a bold, attractive new look.

The Graphite uses the 4x2 LTZ Crew Cab as a base, including a powerful 2.8L Duramax 2 Diesel engine developing 500 Nm torque and a whopping 3.5-tonne towing capacity. 

A Holden My Link infotainment system with 8” colour touchscreen and built-in satellite navigation, plus rear-view camera, are also standard; LED tail lights and daytime running lights round out the exterior aesthetics.

The Colorado Graphite comes in three exterior colours: Summit White, Mineral Black and Satin Steel Grey. 

Specification over and above the standard vehicle includes Graphite leather seats, black with Graphite perforated inserts and ‘Graphite’ embroidered headrests, Graphite exterior decals on all faces, and 18-inch Graphite painted wheels. 

And the fender flare, sports bar, tinted windows, black tubular side step and exterior mirrors are all painted in Graphite.

Three years scheduled servicing, roadside assistance and warranty apply.
