Could this Bangkok Motor Show concept preview the next Chevy Colorado?

Debuting in Thailand, the Colorado Xtreme Concept could give us an early look at the next generation of GM's midsize pickup.

The US-spec Chevrolet Colorado looks a fair bit different (and, dare we say, older) than the Colorado seen here.

Were the Colorado due for a midcycle refresh in the next two or three years, which it likely is, this is what we could end up with.

The whole front fascia is a fair bit more contemporary than the US-spec midsize pickup.

The taillights are fairly different, as well.

But let's ignore all the speculation for a bit and revel in how awesome the Colorado Xtreme Concept looks.

If you thought the standard Z71 Colorado was ready to rumble off-road, this truck looks ready to survive a damn apocalypse.

A big snorkel and an LED light bar provide off-road usefulness, while a front bumper with a large approach angle makes rock-crawling much easier.

It looks good on the move, too, but we imagine its off-road tires are probably not very comfortable on flat asphalt.

It wouldn't be a pickup truck without a big ol' brand name emblazoned on the back.

Hell, we'd settle for a current US Colorado wearing most of this equipment.

The interior looks close to that of the current Colorado, but it's packing some neat gauges atop the infotainment display, like an inclinometer.

The US Colorado is by no means old, but this concept has us already pining for a midcycle refresh.
