Holden Colorado - Click above to watch the video after the jump

The next generation Chevrolet Colorado hasn't been announced for the U.S. just yet (and we're not holding out much hope for its arrival, either), but the sharp-looking truck will be heading to Thailand later this year. In fact, the overhauled pickup, which will reportedly feature a 2.8-liter diesel at launch, will likely make its way into several markets around the world, including Australia. The only real difference is that the Chevrolet Bowtie will be replaced with Holden badging.

Beyond the jump is a four-minute video that shows how the Colorado went from design to show truck. It's always interesting to see all that goes into designing a new vehicle, and this video includes all computerized design, clay modeling and last-minute detailing you'll ever need to see. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.

      Quick GM! Build it for the U.S before Ford figures out that killing the Ranger( and not bring in the new one) was a bad idea!!!

      They deserve their own nose, instead of having to slap a Holden badge on a Chevy split grille. Also, we deserve this vehicle and with a reasonable small engine so the mpg is better than a full-sized truck.

      I love this truck! I'd almost buy it just as it is. Just needs a slight rework of the taillights. It needs to get here to North Ameriaca ASAP! This would be a good line up of engines: 2.4 DI 2.0T 2.0 DI diesel 3.6 3.6T And just leave the V8s to the full size trucks.

        That lineup would rock, but folks had a fit when the Colorados didn't have a V8 Option.

          The 2.8 diesel would be the basic engine in Australia. The Gas(petrol) engines do not have the low down torque or fuel mileage.

      Wow... that might've just replaced the ram as the sexiest pickup in my book.

      This and the New Ranger are super awesome!!!!! It's funny that they don't wanna bring them State side because they will still sales from their big brothers!!! So what? it's the same company!!! I think 90% of F-series buyers do haul and do tough work with their trucks. In the case of the Ranger or Colorado, I think about 50% would do work stuff, the rest would only buy it for recreation or fun. They have to bring those trucks to the US. We should make a petition in Facebook

      IF they can finally get these small trucks some MPGs better that the Half tons then sign me up. I`m ready to down size but not for 1 or 2 miles per gallon difference at the same price as a full size truck. Its not the price that concerns me, its fuel economy.

      I don't like it darn it. The things on the bed don't look right and I hate the sloped line from the windows. Square the windows properly and give it a normal bed and I think it could rock.

        So you want a normal truck like you are used to? nothing wrong with that but you could always buy another truck that already fits that description.

          That's the problem...no one makes a good small/midsize truck that fits that description.

        I agree. The bar over the bed and the angled rear windows need to go. Otherwise, it's a nice looking truck.

      Would love to view a documentary on prototype body & chassis forming. Wish the Colorado wasn't just another never buy here teaser.

      Colorado will be here in late '12. They've started showing sneak peak shots to select dealers. It will be in the states and you wouldn't be wrong if you guessed it will look a lot like above.

      This would seriously be a great small truck to have state side. :)
