Meet Chevy’s new Truck Contender

No doubt, Filipinos really loves pickup truck. It’s meant for daily drive and weekends urban getaways. But more than the travel, pickup trucks are meant for practical hauling. The boys from The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI) shares their heritage of building legendary and dependable trucks. Recently, the company brings a new face for their truck segment—the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Edition.

ICONIC DESIGN

For 100 years, Chevrolet has relentlessly built legendary, strong, and dependable trucks that are made for work and play.

The new Centennial Edition features design elements that exude the rich Chevrolet truck engineering history. It includes exclusive heritage bowtie emblems on the front and rear. On its front doors are 100-year Chevrolet badges that are inspired by the colors and design cues found on early trucks. Each limited-edition Colorado Centennial model also features a vehicle build number displayed as badges on its front doors and unique hood decals.

To add more bling, Chevy puts new 18-inch black alloy wheels. The rugged character of the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition is further enhanced by the inclusion of a bedliner, fender flares, and a tubular body sports bar as standard.
