The General Motors company is pretty proud of the Colorado ZR2 off-road prone pickup truck, and they want to share their achievement with the rest of us through a new video series.
First premiered on front of the worldwide audience last November during the Los Angeles Auto Show, the new Chevy Colorado ZR2 is the only model in its class to feature both front and rear electronic locking differentials – as it was envisioned to be able to go against any type of terrain while still being a great partner at work and during leisure times. This off-road midsize truck gets a wider track and thoroughly modified suspension – even the design has been modified, with new front and rear bumpers that now allow even better clearance angles. Chevy’s videos show us the grueling times of the prototypes at the Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona and deep-sand evaluation at Silver Lake in Michigan.
There were even more tests at the Badlands off-road park in Attica, Indiana while also going on a camping trip of the famous Rubicon trail. The Colorado ZR2 includes front and rear electronic locking differentials, a diesel engine, and comes with Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSVTM) damper technology. An entry-level ZR2 will go for $40,995, making it even more affordable than one of its biggest competitors – the Tacoma TRD Pro. Colorado buyers can pack either a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine good for 308 horsepower (229 kilowatts) and 275 pound-feet (372 Newton-meters) or an optional 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel producing 186 hp (138 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm).
