Los Angeles Autoshow 2016: Chevy Unveils The Colorado ZR2 With Race-Spec Suspension

Written By:

Chevrolet has unveiled its newest performance pickup truck at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The ZR2 off-road package was offered by GM decades ago on its S-10 pickup and the GMC S-10 Blazer SUV, and it was one of the first off-road packages ever to be offered by a major manufacturer.

The ZR2 name puts the new pickup on steroids, making it a strong contender for the most capable factory off-roader in the market.

The ZR2 pickup will come with a lot of changes, and the major upgrade is the new position-sensitive shock absorbers.

The suspension system uses an aluminum-cased, Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve damper with two spool valves to ensure maximum performance during on- and off-road compression and rebounds, as well as high-speed impacts; a typical scenario during a serious desert run.

The ZR2 will also be equipped with a 2-inch taller suspension to make enough room for the new 31-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires.

The ZR2 will feature a wider skid plating than the previous generation Colorado's and some adventure-oriented accessories.

The engine choices for the ZR2 will be the 3.6-litre, V6 petrol engine and a 2.8-litre, inline-four-cylinder, diesel engine with added torque.
