In 2017, General Motors released their latest addition to the series, in the form of Colorado ZR2. Colorado ZR2 is a class in itself. Although it really is an off-road truck, it offers the best of both worlds as it is comfortable to drive around the city also. The vehicle is loaded with certain exclusive features like Multimatic Shocks and front and rear electronic locking differentials.
It comes in the prize range of $20,955 to $42,620. The off-road technology allows you to seamlessly pick any kind of terrain, be it dessert, mountain or marshy areas. The chassis of this vehicle is built to withstand harsh weather and tough roads. A wider track and skid plates provide enhanced stability.
The ZR2 has a 3.5-inch wider stack as compared to its predecessors. This provides a much greater stability, especially in rocky and mountain terrain. The Multimatic shock absorbers work so efficiently that a change of direction is possible almost immediately after landing a jump or coming out of a turn.
A 3.6-liter V6 engine gives approximately 308 horsepower and 275-pound feet of torque powers the Colorado ZR2. This is the same as its predecessors.
