Off-Road Capabilities of the 2018 Chevy Colorado

March 30th, 2018 by

Just named a 2018 Autotrader Must Test Drive Award winner, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 should be high on every consumers list if they are searching for a new truck.

Introduced for the 2018 model year is the all-new Chevy Colorado ZR2, and it is an off-roading machine. Available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine or a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine, the Colorado ZR2 dominates the midsize pickup truck class.

Thanks to the Colorado’s unique size and catalog of standard off-road features, the Colorado ZR2 is the truck for anyone that wants a truck that is fun to drive and can handle all types of terrain. In comparison to standard Colorado models, the Colorado ZR2 has a suspension that is 2 inches higher as well as rear and front track widths that are 3.5 inches wider.

The Colorado ZR2 features front and rear electronic locking differentials that make it possible for the truck to conquer steep terrains or crawl over rocks. To protect the truck from rocks or other debris from damaging the truck, the Colorado ZR2 has a shield that protects the transfer case and modified bumpers. The vehicle’s modified bumpers increase the vehicle’s ground clearance to 8.9 inches, and the front bumper has a thick, aluminum skid plate that protects the radiator and engine oil pan.

Though the primary inspiration of the Colorado is off-roading, the Colorado is equipped with several features that make it an excellent daily driver. Not only does the truck have the convenience of a truck bed, but it is fitted with Active Tow, a trailering package and a brake controller, so it is an excellent truck for towing purposes and when the Colorado is equipped with the 2.8L diesel engine it has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.

To help offer drivers as many conveniences as possible, the Colorado ZR2 is available with OnStar 4G LTE WiFi as well as a handy touchscreen that provides drivers with easy access to entertainment options as well as certain car functions.
