By Ryan Everson | October 26th, 2017

Chevrolet is thrilled to announce that the 2018 Colorado is adding the ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Editions to the lineup. Our brand is celebrating 100 years of building outstanding trucks and we’re adding new options wherever we can. You’ll get all the capability and luxury you expect from this mid-size truck and more with the new editions. Check out what you can expect and then contact us to find out what you can do to secure yours today!


The new 2018 Colorado ZR2 Midnight Edition features a sleek all-black exterior finish along with black accents, like the Chevy badge on the grille and 17-inch five-spoke black accessory wheels, including a spare. Plus this edition will have a black sport bar with off-road LED lighting and ZR2 logos on the sport-bar sail panels. The 2018 Colorado ZR2 Dusk Edition will offer the same features as the Midnight but can be acquired in all other ZR2 exterior finishes, with black accents throughout, so you can have a little more customization in your vehicle.


“The Colorado ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Edition models offer customers even more personalization choices from the only company with three distinct trucks: midsize, full-size and full-size heavy-duty,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, Truck Strategy, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chevrolet offers more choices because the truck market is too diverse for a ‘one size fits most’ strategy.”

To improve upon an already remarkable driving experience on a truck that’s just comfortable rock-climbing and desert running as it is on the asphalt as your daily commuter, the Colorado ZR2 includes off-road suspension with cast-iron control arms and segment-exclusive Multimatic DSSVTM dampers. They are the first off-road shocks to feature position-sensitive spool valve technology, making the truck equally adept on and off the road. You can also look forward to ZR2 standard features like segment-exclusive front electronic locking differential, electronic locking rear differential, hill descent control, an aluminum skidplate that protects the radiator and oil pan, off-road rocker protection, Autotrac transfer case, transfer case shield, four-wheel disc brakes, modified rear axle with a 3.42 ratio and special off-rode mode setting.


Under the hood is a standard 3.6L V-6 match with a class-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission or an available 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel offering best-in-class 369 lb-ft of torque. That gives you plenty of ponies to race across town to your next business meeting or just to go out joyriding. Let this truck be the one to take you where you’re going.
