HA NOI (VNS) -- General Motors Viet Nam launched the Colorado, its first locally produced pick-up, yesterday with an eye on the increasing demand for mid-size trucks in Vietnam.

Developing the truck took five years and US$2 billion.

"We are confident that this is the right vehicle for even the toughest truck users in Viet Nam," said Gaurav Gupta, GM Viet Nam Managing Director.

The pick up is equipped with a Duramax turbo-diesel 2.8 L engine, which delivers power of 178 hp/3,800 rpm and torque of 440 Nm/2000 rpm.
