Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 concept unveiled

Chevrolet’s ZR2 badge traditionally stands for enhanced off-road ability, and that’s certainly the case with the latest truck to wear it. The Colorado ZR2, which has been revealed in concept form at the Los Angeles Auto Show, is suitably equipped for rough terrain use.

An enhanced specification includes electric-locking front and rear differentials, long-travel King coilover suspension and a front-mounted winch. Also fitted is a set of 18” beadlock alloy wheels that sit beneath widened arches.

The bumpers meanwhile have been specially profiled to offer greater approach and departure angles. A unique black grille, a ‘powerdome’ bonnet, leather upholstery and numerous ZR2 logos inside and out further add to the transformation.

Power is provided by a 2.8 litre four-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel engine. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, it produces an estimated 181 bhp (135 kW / 183 PS) with 500 Nm (369 lb/ft) of torque.

Chevrolet says it’s going to gauge public reaction to the Colorado ZR2 concept before committing to a production version.
