Fieldays is going virtual this year — will it be a flop? Mark Daniel looks into the controversial event.
Built with the annual agricultural show in mind, the Colorado ROX will take pride of place at Holden’s site at Mystery Creek from June 12 then will embark on a nationwide dealership tour coupled with call-ins at major events and activations.
The vehicle was created with partners Retro Vehicle Enhancement (RVE).
The super-truck features massive 35-inch Blackbear mud terrain tyres, with custom made monster flares to house the huge wheels. A six-inch suspension and body lift raise the Colorado ROX towards the heavens, while ‘Rock Sliders’ with removable drop steps make ingress and egress almost as easy as getting in and out of a standard Colorado.
The Colorado ROX announces its arrival by way of a carbon fibre high-rise bonnet, complemented with a hand-crafted bespoke front steel bumper, replicated at the back of the vehicle.
Further enhancements to the exterior include a rear deck cargo system and 500mm tray extender, together with an extended wrapping roof bar incorporating retractable lights and roof basket.
The interior of the vehicle has been up-spec’d with the addition of front and rear RVE sports seats, complete with hand-built leather upholstery.
