Upcoming Chevrolet concepts may preview updated Colorado, Trailblazer

The 'bow-tie brand' will be arriving at this year's Bangkok International Motor Show with two concepts that aim to refocus the automaker's direction in pickup trucks and SUVs.

“This year at the Bangkok International Motor Show, we are unveiling two show vehicles that point to an exciting future direction for Chevrolet in Thailand. We are looking forward to sharing this with everyone,” said Marcos A. Purty, Managing Director of GM Thailand and Chevrolet Sales Thailand.

The US-spec Colorado with its own front fascia

Exact details about the upcoming concepts are limited, but based on the image provided, it appears that one of the concepts will be a prelude to the updated Colorado. It will supposedly get the US-spec Colorado's front fascia (pictured above) along with an array of upgrades. Exterior-wise, the concept gets daytime running lights, flared wheel arches, snorkel, roof rack and what appears to be a power bulge on its hood.

So far, both the Colorado and Trailblazer have yet to receive their mid-cycle update. The new concepts may signal the imminent arrival of the long-awaited refreshed Colorado and Trailblazer.

The 2016 Chevrolet Captiva

In addition, there will also be a 2016 Captiva at the annual motor show with Apple CarPlay as standard. According to the automaker, it will be the first SUV in Thailand to get the said feature.

The 37th Bangkok International Motor Show will take place at the Impact Challenger Muanthong Thani and is set to open its doors to the public from March 23 – April 3, 2016.
