Take a good look at this photo. It's a preview of the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado that will be sold around the world.
As we first reported last month, the next-gen Colorado will debut at the Bangkok International Motor Show in Thailand, which runs from March 25 to April 5, 2011.
"Thailand was chosen as the site of the global debut because of the popularity of pickup trucks and the growing importance of the Thai market to Chevrolet," a GM press release says. "In 2010, the pickup truck segment alone accounted for 43% of vehicles sold in Thailand. The new Colorado will go on sale in Thailand later this year."
The next Colorado will be assembled at a GM plant in Thailand for global markets, but we also expect the next Colorado will be sold in the U.S. and Canada, according to our sources. It's code-named 31xxn for North America and is being updated to meet U.S. and Canadian market regulations and consumer tastes by GM's offices in Brazil.
