2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Video, First Look

The new 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is ready to go off-roading.

Introduced at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show, the midsize pickup benefits from a two-inch lift and the first off-road application of the Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) damper technology, the same units found in the Camaro Z/28. According to the American automaker, the shocks help make the Colorado ZR2 a well-rounded off-roader, capable of tight rock crawling and desert running.

The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will be offered with two engine options, a 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque and a Duramax diesel that provides 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Other changes on the Colorado ZR2 include a 3.5-inch wider track, functional rockers and revised bumpers for better approach and departure angles.
