November 24, 2017

The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), the exclusive local distributor of Chevrolet vehicles, has unveiled a limited edition of the Colorado. In celebration of the pickup truck’s 100th year, TCCCI introduced the Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition for the 2018 model year.

In retrospect, the Chevrolet Colorado has been around since 1918. It has since then became the American brand’s challenger in the global pickup truck market with its tried and true power, dependability, durability, and quality. The Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition encapsulates this 100 years of excellence with unique design touches inside and out.

Externally, its front end boasts a masculine aura. The center of the grille is an exclusive “Heritage” iteration of the brand’s bowtie emblem. On the hood is a sleek black trim with a vehicle build number, signifying its limited quantity.

Turning to the side, its front doors showcase a 100 Years Heritage badge, painted in colors that give nod to the vehicle’s early 20th century ancestors. Below the profile sits a set of 18-inch black alloy wheels, highlighted with prominent blacked-out fender flares and running boards. The rear end, on the other hand, stands out with the same muscular vibe up front, which of course, includes the Heritage bowtie emblem and a beefier bedliner.

Internally, the Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition invites its occupants with the brand’s most advanced version of the MyLink infotainment system. The system features an 8-inch touch screen head unit, the ideal size to fully maximize the use of its Siri Eyes Free technology. The said tech elevates the pickup truck’s safety by assisting the driver and warning him or her of potential dangers on the road.

Aside from the Siri Eyes Free, the Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition boasts a gamut of safety features. These include side impact beams, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), dual front airbags, Panic Brake Assist (PBA), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), Roll-Over Mitigation (ROM), and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).

Under the hood sits a Euro-4 compliant Duramax 2.8L inline 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine thet puts out 200 hp and 500 Nm of torque. This is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Of going off-road or loading heavy cargo, the vehicle can haul up to 3.5 tons, an ideal ride for carrying sacks of gravel, boxes of fruit, or camping gear for a weekend trip.

According to TCCCI, the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition will have a sticker price of P1,848,888 and will be available for a limited time only starting November 30, 2017. To those who want to see it in the metal, you may visit the brand’s upcoming Motorama event at the SM Megamall from November 30 to December 6, 2017.
