I was lucky to be invited by Chevrolet Philippines to join them at the Integrity Run held at Fort Bonifacio Taguig last May 6, 2012. I got even luckier when they surprised us with a test drive opportunity of the yet-to-be-launched Chevrolet Colorado

! The truck got the looks of a typical Macho Guwapito hunk in steroids! If car enthusiasts always uses a “lady” to describe their cars, they can’t do it with the Colorado, this car isn’t a girl for sure!

I was really excited to drive the monster pick up. I was told that it has a very powerful diesel engine at 2800cc, 177HP @

only 3800 RPM and a whopping 470NM of torque! It didn’t upset me because engine responded really well when i was hitting the gas pedal. Too bad, Fort Bonifacio got

so many guards that i can not complete a quarter mile speeding. Hehe.

According to Chevrolet North Edsa, the pick up truck has a long queue specially the 2.5 liter Manual Transmission.

1. Chevrolet Colorado 2.5 liter 4×2 MT 1,148M

2. Chevrolet Colorado 4×4 MT 1,468M

3. Chevrolet Colorado 4×4 AT 1,538M
