The ZR2, originally introduced as a concept at the LA Auto Show back in 2014, is a special edition of the Chevrolet Colorado designed for extreme off-road use in a relatively affordable package. Compared to the standard Colorado it is 2 inches higher with a track that is 3.5 inches wider, with both the front and rear bumpers modified as well for better clearance. It has front and rear electronic locking differentials as well as Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve damper technology.
For 2018, the Colorado comes with a choice of two engines. The standard engine is the 3.6 liter V6 producing 308 hp @ 6800 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, and there is the optional compact 2.8 liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel inline-4 producing 181 hp @ 3400 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque @ 2000 rpm.
New features for 2018 include Active Tow, which helps the driver align the vehicle when moving in reverse to hitch a trailer; two new paint colors, Satin Steel Grey Metallic & Kinetic Blue; and heated outside mirrors.
The ZR2 rides excludes 17" aluminum tires shod with 31" Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires made for off-road use.
