Holden has quietly introduced the Colorado Thunder special edition.

Essentially an options package, the Colorado Thunder is distinguished by a front "nudge bar," a hood shield, side window deflectors and a soft tonneau cover. The trucks are also equipped with carpeted floor mats, "Thunder" badging and the towing package.

Power is provided by a 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 179 HP (132 kW) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to have a towing capacity of 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs).

According to Holden Marketing Manager Kristian Aquilin, the package "bundles together all of our most popular Colorado accessories in one pack, which not only makes Colorado Thunder a compelling offer, but looks fantastic too.”

The Colorado Thunder is currently on sale but there's no word on pricing.
