What kind of ride fits actress Solenn Heussaff?

Solenn Heussaff wears many hats—she’s an actress, an artist, a singer, a mode, a curious traveler… the list goes on. With her active lifestyle and busy schedule, Solenn is on the lookout for a vehicle that will meet all her driving needs in one go.

Enter the Chevrolet Colorado Storm—a seriously capable pickup truck that can power anyone through the day. We must give credit to The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI) the official distributor of Chevrolet cars in the country, for this new top-of-the-line variant of the Colorado that is packed with features inside and out.

Not only did Chevrolet introduce a winner in the Storm, they packed charming celebrity to go along for the ride—Solenn Heussaff. “I love that it’s an easy to use big car,” says Solenn. “I would never be able to park something of that size before (haha). The camera at the back and sensors make my parking extra easy and precise. The color I chose is also badass.

THE PERFECT STORM

Looks are everything—and the Storm has it all. The pickup has several blacked-out accents, which can be seem on the hood, doors, side mirror caps and door handles. There’s also the striking vehicle body decals, which highlight the Colorado Storm’s go-anywhere image. On top of that, the pickup trick sports a black 18-inch alloy wheels, black anthracite rear bumper and the rear sport bar on the bed itself—truly badass.

Stepping in to the Storm is a delight with its six-way power adjustable driver’s seat making adjustments easy. Of course we can’t overlook the 8-inch touchscreen system that supports the latest MyLink infotainment software. Besides having the usual AM/FM radio, USB, AUX input, and Bluetooth telephone features, the new MyLink also comes with Apply CarPlay with Siri Eyes Free and voice recognition, and Android Auto.

A LIFESTYLE FIT

The Colorado Storm is the perfect fit for the busy and fun loving Solenn’s lifestyle. “I’m usually taping or shooting six days a week,” says Solenn. “I love to get up early and walk to my Muay Thai class before work. If I’m not on set till early morning the next day. I usually do my groceries and prepare a meal for Nico and I. I like simple days.”

But when she’s taping, Solenn needs an able partner that will help her get to where she needs to go. “Heading to work usually takes me two to three hours drive since we shoot in far locations,” shares the actress. “The Storm gives me comfort when I need to stay in the car for a long time, and the option to turn it from 4x2 to 4x4 is useful when taping in farther locations with steep and rocky roads.”

Under the hood of the Storm is a 2.8-liter DURAMAX turbo-diesel engine that delivers maximum power and torque. Being the top-of-the-line model the Colorado Storm is available with a six-speed automatic transmission coupled to a 4WD system.

And when the driving gets tough, the Storm has safety features that any driver looks for: Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring, Front and Rear Parking Sensors and a Reverse Camera.

“I really like the easy drive and the side sensors,” adds Solenn—emphasizing that looks are one thing and the little extras make the ride easy.

DRIVE UP A STORM

Solenn shares, “The smooth drive—that it ‘cancels’ noise from outside—the sleek black trim design, and the interiors [make the Storm feel like it’s on a league of its own] and not just a regular truck.

The Chevrolet Colorado Storm is what Solenn needs—it’s a vehicle that not only gets where she wants to go, it’s also fun to drive, easy to maneuver, and looks really cool—what more could she want? The Colorado Storm and Solenn—two tough beauties that meet roads ahead in style.

“You can cross absolutely any place anywhere in the country with the Storm. You are unstoppable,” enthuses Nico. “In managing my business, I use the Storm to go to all of my farms, and sometimes accessing the farms is not easy and the roads are not great.

Of course I like that I look so cool driving my Colorado.”

The Chevrolet Colorado Storm is what Nico needs—it’s a vehicle that not only gets him where he wants to go, it’s also fun to drive, easy to maneuver, and looks really cool—what more could he want? Chevrolet and Nico are really kicking up a Storm with this pickup.
