2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Off-Road
The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is one of the most anticipated off-roading pickups to ever hit the market. The versatile model shipped out earlier this month, much to the pleasure of enthusiasts everywhere. Built on the standard Chevrolet Colorado, the new model brings plenty of advanced features designed to tackle the toughest terrain the world has to offer.
Starting at $40,995, the Colorado ZR2 off-road pickup is more than $2,000 cheaper than the nearest competitor*. The new model rolls out on 31-inch off-road tires, a two-inch lifted suspension, and front and rear locking electronic differentials.
Under the hood likes a 3.6-liter V6 engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and produces a thrilling 306 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. The available 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and delivers 186 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
The off-roading pickup is far from just brawn though. Inside, drivers will enjoy a standard rear vision camera, automatic cruise control, Chevrolet MyLink, and an eight-inch touchscreen.
“ZR2 is truly a segment of one and does everything well — from traversing heavy two-track trails to high-speed desert running and full-on rock crawling. We’re thrilled to be able to offer it for more than $2,500 less than the next closest comparable vehicles,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks Marketing Director.
We here at Fairground Auto Plaza are happy to see the long-awaited Colorado ZR2 finally shipping out!
