The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Named Truck of the Year

By Justin Cupler | January 11th, 2018

According to FOUR WHEELER, the world’s leading 4×4 authority since 1962, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is the Pickup Truck of the Year. The publication took into account the handling, ride experience, and overall performance on a variety of terrains, including a racetrack, paved roads, sand, rocky trails, loose-surface trails, snow, loose-dirt hill climbs and water crossings. See what set this truck apart in the editors’ eyes and then see our current inventory of Chevrolet Colorado trucks now to start shopping for your new pickup today!

“Chevrolet has a proven track record of success developing performance variants for Corvette and Camaro,” said Mark Dickens, executive director of Performance Vehicles, General Motors. “ZR2 takes this philosophy and applies it to Colorado, albeit in a way that makes sense for a truck, enabling customers to rock crawl, desert run and even drive comfortably on paved roads, all with equal degrees of confidence and fun.”

The Chevy Colorado ZR2 stands alone to offer drivers the agility and maneuverability of a midsize pickup with a slew of new off-road features and the most off-road technology of any vehicle in its segment. Compared to a standard Colorado, the ZR2 features a 3.5-inch wider track and a suspension lifted by 2 inches. Functional rocker protection has been added for better performance over rocks and obstacles, and the front and rear bumpers were modified for better off-road clearance.

You’ll also enjoy class-exclusive features include front and rear electronic locking differentials, an available diesel engine and the first off-road application of Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSVTM) damper technology. And because of all this the Colorado ZR2 provides exceptional performance in most on-road or off-road situations. You can use this truck for work or for play – from technical rock crawling to tight two-track trails to high-speed desert running to daily driving.
