GM to Debut All-New Off-Road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Chevy Silverado ZR2

General Motors (GM) is getting ready to show off its latest pickup, the all-new off-road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2. This release comes in the midst of a global transition to electric vehicles. Most automakers have been aiming to produce their own version of an electric vehicle. GM has been teasing the all-electric Chevy Silverado and rumors have been spreading about a potential electric Camaro. With the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, GM is hoping to ramp up excitement and anticipation for its future lineup. The debut of a fully electric pickup has garnered the most interest, but GM has been sure to keep any information under wraps. For now, the automaker is providing updates and adding new features to its current lineup. Until more information is released about other vehicles, we’ll have to stick to pure speculation. The automaker has released details about the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 however, so we’ll dive into the new updates.

All-New Off-Road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

GM unveiled the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 ahead of the NFL’S first game of the season between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GM has enjoyed a lot of interest recently for its Silverado lineup, but this move to reach the greatest number of eyes was solid. According to the director of Chevrolet marketing Kelly MacDonald, about 60% of Silverado sales have been off-road-focused pickups. With so much interest in off-road capable pickups, it’s no wonder GM is updating its lineup. 

The all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be getting a new exterior design and several new features and technologies. GM will update the pickup’s exterior with slimmer headlights and a refreshed grille. These will help display the brand’s logo more prominently. The new designs are similar to those of the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which share the same platform as the Silverado. Inside the Chevy Silverado ZR2, consumers will note more technologies such as an e-shifter. A larger infotainment screen and heads-up display will also accompany the new pickup.

The last addition to the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be safety and driver-assist features. These will consist of lane-keep assist, lane departure alerts, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking. GM will also be including its new Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system. This new system will use sensors, radars, and cameras to help drivers better navigate the road. Pricing for the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has not been determined yet, however, the starting price for the Silverado lineup ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new pickup will most likely fall between these prices. Off-road pickups offer the function of a pickup with the versatility of an off-roader. GM is providing consumers with the best of both worlds. Consumers will be happy to see GM expanding and updating its lineup.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Set The Standard For Full-Size SUVs

Friday, September 10th, 2021

New Features For 2022

As with many automakers, the Chevrolet company performed a few nips and tucks on their new vehicles, particularly the upcoming Tahoe SUV and its extended Suburban sibling. Improvements that have been made the inside (all but base LS model) include a new 12-inch digital gauge display fenced in by a conventional analog tacho- and speedometer. These trims also receive a standard navigation system from the 10.2-inch central infotainment touchscreen. Additional standard features include Lane-Keeping Assist and parking sensors. At the same time, Reverse Automatic Braking is included in the high-ranking trims’ Enhanced Display and Alert package. Lastly, the 6.2-liter V8 option stretches to the ZR1, RST and Premier models, but with the exclusion of the Premier, you’ll need to select one or more packages.

Size Increase and Cargo Capacity

Last year, parent company, General Motors gave their full-size SUVs a complete revamp after nearly thirty years. These enhancements included a highly-anticipated switch to the independent rear suspension, which in turn allowed for extra interior space and cargo capacity. The 2022 Tahoe increased its overall length by 6.7 inches, along with 4.9 inches of its wheelbase. Meanwhile, the Suburban added 1.3 inches to its length and an incredible 4.1 inches to its wheelbase.

The Tahoe’s interior gains 3 inches of legroom in the second row, and a surplus of 10.1 inches in the third row partly due to the lower floor. The Surban also increases its space by a bit over 2 inches of legroom in each row.

Cargo space also made great improvements. In the Tahoe SUV, cargo measurements have increased by 10.2 cubic feet (specifically 25.5 cubes), while the Suburban increased its space by 2.2 cubic feet (overall 41.5 cubes).

Performance and Towing Specifications

There are three different engine types to pick for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. The entry-level motor is a naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8, which has an output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an available rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Optional on the Z71, RST, Premier and High Country models is another naturally aspirated V8, but a 6.2-liter. It musters up 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. As with the 5.3-liter, it includes the same type of automatic and drive systems.

Additionally, the automaker is offering a unique diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which is only one like in its class. It has an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and also shares the 10-speed automatic.

Towing capacities range from 7,500 and 8,000 lbs subject to body style, engine, and drivetrain. The tow package also increases capacity with each model, but only by a small margin.

Available Features

Basic gear that you’ll find in the beloved Chevrolet SUVs are the 5.3-liter V8, engine and transmission coolers, and a limited-slip differential. External features involve 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, running boards, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and remote start. Internal gadgets encompass three-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, the 10-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver assist features.

On higher trims, like the Z71, drivers get to revel in the charming and exclusive front fascia and bumper, which provides the car with a more aggressive appearance. It also includes hill-descent control, 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires and a skid plate. Then, the luxurious High Country comes with the 6.2-liter V8, magnetic and air suspension, 22-inch wheels, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist, rear camera mirror, leather heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding rear seats, a large instrument panel screen and head-up display, 10-speaker Bose sound system, and wireless phone charging.

On top of this, there are optional towing assist on both SUVs, which have cameras that have up to nine different views for maneuvering and monitoring one’s trailer. They are standard with a trailer guidance feature along with a rear-view camera. There’s even an app on the infotainment system that allows users to store information about their trailer and perform various checks as they hook up the motor home.

Safety and Driver Assist Features

At last, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban advocate for safety as they provide owners with an array of technologies, such as the standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional technologies (standard on higher trims) include reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

Top 5 Road Trip Features On The 2021 Chevy Suburban

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

Just because the kids are going back to school doesn’t mean that you have to end your summer fun, especially for those of you who are “working from home”. The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is the perfect full-sized SUV for your road-trippin’ excursions. It’s filled with plenty of features that are guaranteed to augment your getaway experience such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Zero Gravity Seats, Wi-Fi Hotspot, and much more. Here are the Top 5 Road Trip Features On The 2021 Chevy Suburban.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

The High Country trim is best of the best on the 2021 Suburban SUV, and with it includes the brand’s Infotainment 3 system paired with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It allows users to make use of features like Waze and Spotify, as well as make phone calls and send text messages. Wireless support is very convenient on longer trips where drivers may switch seats while taking turns driving. The system is also user-friendly and hardly distracting while your hands are on the wheel.

4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot

Nowadays, having poor cell service or lack of Wi-Fi is almost considered to be on the same level as losing an arm, you just can’t function without it. Luckily, all models on the Chevy Suburban include 4G LTE integration with in-vehicle, ensuring that you and your passengers are always connected. Owners also get to take advantage of the 1-month trial, which involves 3BG of data, and can even opt for an additional plan after this trial ends.

You don’t have to worry about hearing “Are we there yet?” one too many times, as kids and teens will be able to stay in touch with friends or see what’s trending on TikTok without having to use their data.

Heated and Ventilated Seats

Third on our list are 12-way power front seats with available heated and ventilated functionality. This feature is perfect either for those living in warmer climates like Florida or cooler areas like Colorado. You don’t have to worry about making various pit stops to avoid harsh temperatures, because this tool keeps front seat passengers comfortable no matter what condition. Additionally, High Country models also offers this technology for seats in the second row.

Backup and Rearview Mirror Camera

It’s safe to say that back up cameras are considered to be a common feature in most new vehicles, however, the Chevy company does it right by inputting a surround view system, which is especially helpful when maneuvering in tight parking spots or avoiding pedestrians. Other camera angles allow one to see the SUV sky-high or how close they are to a curb.

As usual, the High Country trim cranks up the heat by switching to video display by flipping the mirror up, in which you’ll see a live feed from the back of you. It allows drivers to see a clear view of traffic behind them while the trunk is stuffed with suitcases.

Lots of Charging Ports

Having LTE Wi-Fi isn’t the only way to stay connected. The 2021 Suburban is loaded with charging ports, with access provided in the front and second row. More specifically, front row occupants have access to USB ports on both sides and a wireless charger. Meanwhile, second-row and even third row passengers include USB-C chargers.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

This only scratches the surface of what the big and bad 2021 Chevy Suburban can do, find out more of what it has to offer by visiting Miami Lakes Chevrolet. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand, including their full-sized SUV.

The 2022 Chevy Camaro Is Back In Action In More Ways Than One

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

The 2022 Chevy Camaro Is Finally In Production

We’ve recently learned that the Chevrolet company is bringing their 2022 Chevrolet Camaro into production at the GM Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan GM Authority. Due to the current microchip shortage impacting various automakers, including Chevy, it has contributed to the delay of General Motors (GM) with the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5, along with the upcoming Camaro vehicle.

Owing to this delay, inventory for the 2022 muscle car went down, which also contributed to the decrease in Camaro sales. More specifically, car site, GM Authority, reported last month that these Carmo sales went down to a 9 percent segment share during the second quarter of last year.

These year-to-date 2021 Camaro sales came up to 9,881 units, which is a decrease of 29 percent as opposed to 2020’s calendar year of 13,860 units. These shares come up to 14 percent, which is down 2020 percent reported in 2020.

The 2022 Camaro is in its seventh model year and has received a few beautifications and updates as opposed to the previous year. Production of this vehicle was initially set this year, Monday, June 14th, but that date was eventually pushed back.

These augmentations involve the adding of two new exterior colors, along with discontinuing two other exterior options, specifically Crush, which is an orange hue using the paint code G16, with the addition of Shock, a green-yellow with the paint code GKO. New options include Rapid Blue, which we saw at the Daytona race, NASCAR Beef It’s What’s For Dinner 300, last February. The second color is Vivid Orange Metallic.

Other features that we’re saying bye to include the LT 1LE Track Performance Package and the 20-inch Caliente wheelset.

Live Configurations 

The news of the 2022 Chevy Camaro goes even further as the company has launched an online configurator tool, enabling loyalists to make their own distinctive personalization to the pony car.

Similar to other configurators of GM, this one, in particular, allows its users to select from either the Coupe or Convertible body types and choose their desired trim level. The specific models that will be brought forth from the previous Camaro involve 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS, and ZL1. Buyers can also choose colors for the exterior and interior, as well as packages and options.

An example of what one could do with the configurator is to put Rapid Blue as an exterior color for the 1SS Coupe, with Medium Ash Gray for the interior upholstery. Another is to add on Black Accent Exterior Package, which encompasses a satin black painted front splitter and side rockers, along with 20-inch split-spoke Satin Black wheels. 

The upcoming Camaro is certainly geared up and will require that buyers give up $56,920, (plus destination fee) for the base price, as well as $4,420 for selected packages. Additionally, selected options require $7,815, (plus destination fee).

New Patent Images Suggest That An Electric Chevrolet Is Coming Our Way

Tuesday, August 10th, 2021

Recently, the Chevrolet company published a design patent that demonstrates what could possibly be the next-generation of their Chevrolet Equinox electric SUV. The revamped platform will alter its design and technologies, and we can guess that this new crossover will have to carry a different moniker, but for the time being, it’s certain that this mid-size vehicle will be the electric equivalent of the current model.

Taking into account General Motors’ (GM) position on electrics versus hybrids, we can deduce that these recent publications of the Equinox crossover are a direct reflection of a vehicle that totally does away with relying on gasoline. To further explain, the car company already said that it wants to hone in on efforts towards vehicles that are fully electric, and that its studies reveal customers don’t particularly love hybrids.

Moreover, the illustrations show that the vehicle has a closed front end, which almost mirrors that of the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV, along with the Cadillac Lyriq. On top of this, the drawings don’t depict that it will make room for an exhaust system, which is obviously needed for a hybrid vehicle.

On the other hand, other elements that support our theory that this electric Equinox to-be. For example, last November, CEO Mary Barra, said that GM would upgrade its financial undertaking to electrics and self-driving vehicles of $7 billion with the aim of releasing 30 new electrics worldwide by 2025. Even before this statement, the automaker said the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck, and eventually went on to develop the Hummer EV product line together with the Hummer EV SUV.

GM also disclosed the refashioned 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and its brand-new and larger relative, the Bolt EUV, coupled with the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq luxury crossover. That being the case, Barra went further in explaining that the ongoing microchip shortage won’t affect the company’s rollout for their electric vehicles, however, it has slowed down production of the upgraded 2022 Chevy Equinox SUV until the middle of August.

It’s almost a given that this type of vehicle will make use of the company’s Ultium Drive And Motor Technology, which are made for a wide range of implementations, such as front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, and can even be utilized by vehicles of high-performance and off-road capabilities. This highlights Barra’s view that GM has the ability to “put everyone in an EV.”

Although the patent was indeed filed by SAIC-GM (Shanghai General Motors Company) for the market for China, most of the Ultium Drive workings like the castings, gears and assemblies will be constructed with parts that are globally sourced at GM’s current global propulsion facilities on collective, adjustable assembly lines, which means that this model may eventually wander on to the States; Which is safe to say would be aligned with GM’s motivations for global coverage.

While we’re waiting for the new and improved Chevrolet Equinox, as well as other electrified vehicles in the works, Miami Lakes Automall has a plethora of vehicles like the gasoline version of their crossover SUV, as well as a variety of other different models that range in various shapes and prices.

General Motors Says That Their Super Cruise System Will Upgrade With Lane Changes and More

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021

Powering Up The Super Cruise System

General Motors (GM) prized possession, the Super Cruise system, is one of the most innovative driver-assist technologies currently on the market, and for 2022, it’s getting even more advanced and more accessible to other vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra half-ton pickup trucks.

One of the main upgrades of the Super Cruise system is hands-free automatic lane changing, which will give the car the ability to access when it’s safe to pass a car driving in front of you and change lanes when permissible without any action needed from the driver.

Other advancements include hands-free towing, which is helpful for those moving trailers, and improvements in navigation. 

This Super system was first brought to the automotive scene in 2017 in GM’s Cadillac CT6 sedan. It was during this introduction that we saw how the car was capable of guiding drivers to and fro over 200,000 miles of various highways across the States, all on its own. By utilizing both the GPS and on-board cameras, it compares the placement of the vehicle to its location in a lidar scan of the globe. Once the car understands its location, and it’s safe to take over operations, the Cruiser will literally take the wheel, as well as control the acceleration.

However, this doesn’t mean that the driver should then slack off, as they are required to pay attention in the same way as they were when they were piloting. In fact, the system involves technology that can sense whether or not the driver’s eyes are on the road. Should their eyes roam elsewhere, the system will start with various warnings before completely deactivating. If this is not the case, in most cases, there will be no need to take over.

The automaker says that this driver assistance feature will be found on a wealth of different vehicles such as the upcoming GMC Hummer electric pickup, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups, the Cadillac Escalade and XT6 SUVs, and the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans. Additionally, buyers of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will get to enjoy an older version of Super Cruise, which of course, will not include the lane change features. However, buyers of the 2021 Escalade models will get the new features in a future over-the-air update.

GM still needs to watch its back, as its fierce competitor, Ford, has plans to launch its own driving system, the hands-free BlueCruise, which is coming later this year in 2021 F-150 pickups, as well as the electric Mustang Mach-E car.

Another rival is the Autopilot system from Tesla. They also have a new beta version of its Full Self Driving features which even back automatic lane changes on the highway. On the flip side, the company says that the driver still has to keep his or her hands on the steering wheel to confirm their attentiveness…which completely defeats the purpose of the system.

While both Super Cruise and Autopilot aren’t necessarily newcomers on the market, they were not featured in any pickup trucks, which are the most popular vehicles in the States. In conjunction with Super Cruise and BlueCruise, these technologies will be brought to a new market of truck buyers in more ways than one.

The Chevrolet Company Confirms That The Corvette Z06 Is Coming Our Way In 2023

Friday, July 30th, 2021

The Chevrolet company has confirmed to automotive lovers everywhere that it will unveil its latest and greatest 2023 Corvette Z06 sometime this fall. Beyond these details is more or less speculation, such as the possibility of the sports car being fully electric, which shouldn’t be considered too much of a stretch given the current trend for conventional car brands.

The parent company to Chevrolet, General Motors has said that it will bring out 30 new electric vehicles by 2025. So far, it has only publicized a small number, which includes the GMC Hummer EV pickup, Hummer EV SUV, the Cadillac Lyriq SUV, and a fully-electric version of the Silverado pickup.

Last week Monday (July 19), the automaker released a short teaser video advertising the 2023 Z06. In it, you’ll hear the roar of the Corvette’s engine, as the viewer can only see the racetrack and city streets. The video eventually ends with the tagline, “The streets will never sound the same.”

Around this time, two years ago, the car company brought forth its very first mid-engine Corvette Stingray. Then on Monday, Chevrolet wrote in a statement “This fall, the story will continue with the reveal of the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06, the supercar that will put the world on notice.”

At some point in the video, you also see a tagline that says “The streets will never sound the same”, which some fans are speculating that this could be Chevrolet’s way of telling us that this model is indeed an electrified one.

In August of last year, in the middle of an 80-second campaign ad, run by President Joe Biden, he told viewers about his love for cars, specifically his Corvette, following this by saying “They tell me” that GM is working on an all-electric version of the famous sports car that will go 200 mph.

According to Detroit Free Press, a person who is well acquainted with the production of the brand confirmed intentions for a fully electrified version of the sporty vehicle, however, the specifics regarding the time and maximum speed were not known.

More than likely, the electric model will take at least two years or more to be released, as said by this acquainted person last year. They also stated that the car will be in accordance with the brand’s performance versions because of the market in 2021. This source declined to reveal themselves because they were not authorized to speak with media outlets.

Last month, Chevrolet selected Detroit’s Belle Isle Park to unveil a new Limited Edition supercar performance version of the respected Vette, along with announcing new colors, pricing, and additional features of the 2022 mid-engine Stingray, which begins production later this year.

The 2022 mid-engine Stingray, which eager customers could start ordering this month, will increase in price from the 2021 model, however, it will encompass some new games and prizes to advance performance. It will also be offered in three new colors.

The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 May Get Off-Roading Features

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mean and aggressive pickup that earns its props for its off-road capabilities. The midsize pickup’s spool valve shocks are serious executors of their job, while the underside is geared up to be able to tackle more difficult situations and increase function. The high-quality Colorado model is just what the doctor ordered on a nice off-roading day, and the optional turbodiesel engine isn’t too shabby either. Now it appears that the automaker wants to implement this work of genius on its full-size 2022 Silverado, which would move a step above the Trail Boss trim in the lineup.

It’s questionable whether this upcoming Silverado ZR2 will increase in its strength, but decrease in its speed, or perhaps get the best of both worlds. For the moment, we’ll have to wait until the automaker releases the engine specs, especially because it’s certain that it will have particular features that will be unlike many pick-ups on the market, if not all of them.

One thing that should be expected is that the shock absorbers of the Colorado’s Multimatic-acquired Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve play a key role, as they make way for highly accurate damping control, better cooling, and increased travel. In the Colorado, there is an extra spool valve that is only involved during very large suspension movements. Altogether, the dampers perform better over a vast range of conditions rather than a conventional shock, and that’s whether it’s on or off-road.

Elements that make the Colorado ZR2 stand out are the elevated lift, augmented armor, rock sliders, and re-shaped bumpers to boost angles for approach and departure. There is also a toughened fully-boxed frame, along with its standard front and rear locking differentials. It’s certain that the Silverado ZR2 will have a better lift in contrast to the Trail Boss, brawnier skid plates, and similar number treatment as its miniature family member. The extra frame support may or may not be needed. Judging from Chevrolet’s teaser video, it seems that Silverado ZR2 will keep its rear leaf spring setup, like the Colorado, opposed to employing the arrangement of the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.

As for the engine components of the Silverado ZR2, more than likely the regular L87 6.2-liter V-8 that produces a healthy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft will be used, and will still be a worthy competitor against the Ram Rebel’s 5.7-liter.

One should know that the Colorado ZR2 also offers a Duramax turbo diesel option, and if the automaker wants, it can also offer the Silverado ZR2 with that powertrain’s larger sibling: the highly effective Duramax I-6 turbodiesel. Though it only produces 277 horsepower it makes up for it with 460 lb-ft of torque, and also has excellent fuel economy figures.

We should know more about what Chevrolet has in store for its truck enthusiasts by this fall but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall is selling vehicles in various shapes and sizes from the automaker such as the Silverado and the Colorado trucks.

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro: Battle Of The Off-Roaders

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro are at the top of their game when it comes to highly efficient midsize pickups. The ZR2 is a worthy contender with its thrilling powertrain options, revamped styling, capable ride and handling, as well as it’s best-in-class towing. Meanwhile, the TRD gives other pickups a run for their money with its overall durability and off-road capabilities. Let’s see how they match up with each other and see who’s really leading the pack.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to splurging its loyal following of truckers with the ZR2 off-road trim. It’s looking fierce and vivacious for the 2021 model year, and according to the automaker, it has improved in its visibility and a new grille design.

The truck shows its hot stuff with its impressive off-road gear, such as ultimate shocks, independently lockable front and rear differentials, and surplus skid plates under components deemed vulnerable.

Along with the refashioning of the pickup, the ZR2 certainly captures the menacing and blood-thirsty look and presents it well. The body looks strong and muscular, but not in the sense where it’s too fussy. This vehicle shows you that it’s ready to take you on a rock-crawling adventure, while still making it just in time to take you to the office by the end of your weekend. The company’s off-road edition involves an elevated suspension, a wider track, revamped bumpers, and an operative skid plate.

Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

The 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro is the man…well, truck to rely on for jobs that require working in dirt, such as on a worksite on a trail, this pickup can do almost anything. For well over 30 years, the Tacoma has proven itself to be reliable and trustworthy for off-roading activities. Additionally, this truck has a towing capability for up to 6,800 pounds.

Three of the TRD models encompass various levels of off-road capability, with ingenious technology. The regular Tacoma has a 2-speed transfer case, Crawl Control, and Multi-Terrain Select.

The highest-ranking TRD pro truck tacks on Fox internal bypass shocks, a special TRD cat-back exhaust, a TRD Pro front skid plate, and a series of distinct appearance and convenience accessories.

On top of all of these positives and reputation for trustworthiness, The Tacoma’s long-lived and recently rejuvenated standing also gives it the best resale value in its segment after 5 years of ownership.

Which One Is The Best Pickup?

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro are neck and neck. These two amazing off-roaders are similar in being highly effective off-road trucks with large tires and plenty of ground clearance. 

However, the ZR2 outranks its competitor with its available turbo diesel option, more energetic V6 engine, and an array of cabs and beds. We’ll give it to the Tacoma for at least having the best resale value, but it just isn’t enough otherwise.
