Holden is keen to capitalise on increasing demand at the top end of the ute market and capture some of the interest in accessories that typically goes to aftermarket supplies once buyers have left the dealership. Hence the creation of the Colorado Z71 Xtreme, an assortment of accessories designed to add to its appeal – at a price. The Xtreme starts life as a Colorado Z71 but has various cosmetic and mechanical changes to better prepare it for rough road driving. We’ve previously covered off the Z71 in a PM review, so for this test we’ll be focusing on the changes with the Xtreme pack during our first drive in outback South Australia.
