Truck 100 year heritage

Vision Motors
Saturday, February 10, 2018

One hundred years after the start of sales of Chevrolet's first truck, the 1918 One-Ton, Vision Motors is kick-starting sales of its new icon, the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition.

The 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition is part of the celebration of the American brand, which has produced classic trucks such as the 1958 Apache 3100 Series, 1988 C/K1500 and Colorado High Country STORM — revolutionising the perception of trucks.

Based on the award-winning 2018 Colorado High Country and LTZ models, the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition marries tough design with rugged performance. It features segment-leading technology and connectivity, including the latest-generation Chevrolet MyLink recognition system.

The 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition is powered by a 2.8L Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. It celebrates Chevrolet's truck heritage and is inspired by different generations of Chevrolet Trucks. Each iconic truck features its own vehicle build number displayed as a badge on the inside of its door, a heritage bowtie, a 100-year Chevrolet badge, unique hood decals, 18-inch black wheels, a bedliner and a fender flare.

GM International says: "To celebrate our 100th anniversary of trucks, we wanted to launch a model that our customers would love. We have taken an award-winning truck in the 2018 Colorado and bettered it with design cues and badges from our 100-year heritage. This is a truck that our customers will be proud to own and drive.

Many of our customers are long-term Chevrolet owners. It is a testament to the quality of the brand that some of them are still driving trucks that are many generations old. With the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition, we have built a truck that we believe our multi-generational Chevrolet owners will thoroughly enjoy."

With a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT), the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition produces 147 kW (200 PS) of power at 3600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque at a low 2000 rpm. The Duramax engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that allows the driver to shift from automatic to manual mode.

To celebrate, a total of 8 variants of Colorado are now available for customers to view and test drive.

Customers looking to test drive the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition can do so at Vision Motors showroom in Karsanji St, Suva, Nadi and Labasa through special arrangements.

In addition, customers will benefit from Chevrolet Complete Care. The aftersales service program includes 24/7 Roadside Assistance, a three-year or 100,000-kilometre warranty, our unique 'Buy with confidence — five years or ¼ million km Powertrain warranty', and Chevy Plus services.
