The tested model of Colorado was introduced in Australia during 2012. This ANCAP rating applies all crew cab variants. Dual front airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Dual pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
