Chevrolet is dedicated to offer its pick-up clients an alternative for hard off-roading. And this happens on the ocassion of Los Angele Auto Show, where Chevrolet decided to introduce the all new Colorado ZR2, a car that will feature more off-road technology than any other mid-size pickup when it goes on sale.

Compared to a standard Colorado, the ZR2 features a much wider track and a lifted suspension. Functional rockers have been added for better performance over rocks and obstacles, and the front and rear bumpers have been modified for better off-road clearance.

Visually, the production version of the Colorado ZR2 closely resembles the concept shown at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Consumer response to that concept was so overwhelming, the team knew they needed to carry as much of the original design into production as possible.

The ZR2 features 17 inch aluminum wheels, in a pattern exclusive to the ZR2, wrapped in 31-inch Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires for exceptional traction. 

The ZR2 also features the most advanced four-wheel drive system in the segment. With class-exclusive, electronic-locking differentials front and rear and Chevrolet’s AutoTrac transfer case, the ZR2 offers nine drive configurations.

The ZR2 shares its powertrains with the 2017 Colorado, and it will be the only extreme production off-road truck to offer the choice of gas or diesel engines.

The ZR2 can tow up to 5,000 lbs, enough to pull a camper, trailer dirt bikes, jet skis, snow mobiles and other toys, or carry 1,100 lbs. of payload.
