The 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 is a fun truck, and I think Chevy’s first to come with an “off-road mode.” But unlocking the truck’s real wild side takes a few more steps than just pushing one button. We’ll walk you through the procedure.
The 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 took its sweet time working up to 45 mph, so I wasn’t about to scrub my hard-earned speed for a cute little tabletop jump. The GM engineer riding shotgun was too far from the brake pedal to stop me, so we hit the lip at a canter, asscheeks puckered and 4,963 pounds of truck sailed into the…
The Rubicon Trail is one of the best-known and most technical rock crawling truck trails in the United States. That’s why Jeep’s most extreme off-road Wrangler is named after it. Well, I’m sure a few Jeeps were surprised to see a group of Chevy ZR2 pickups in their mirrors out there last year.
Two years ago Chevy trotted out a fierce-looking off-road variant of the Colorado pickup truck called the ZR2. “Sure looks sweet,” we sniffed. “Dare you to build it.” Well this thing just rolled into the LA Auto Show with locking differentials, a diesel engine option, and get a load of that approach angle!
We knew Chevrolet was turning the Colorado pickup truck into some kind of military test bed, but I was not expecting the thing to look straight out of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Forget a Raptor rival, GM has gone totally Hollywood and I kind of love it.
General Motors and the U.S. Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center are cooking up a small military truck concept based on the Chevy Colorado that uses hydrogen fuel cell and electric power to get around and serve as a mobile generator.
General Motors is giving the Chevrolet Colorado an entirely new V6 gasoline engine with cylinder deactivation and an eight-speed transmission for 2017. Apparently the idea is to give the truck better performance and economy, which sounds great. But GM’s estimated new 0-60 mph and MPG figures? “Essentially [a]…
If a 4 Wheel Parts catalog spilled all over a Chevy Colorado it’d be this Thai Colorado Xtreme concept. It’s a caricature on wheels and it’s perfect. Now this is a Z71 worthy of an “Off-Road” sticker.
The Chevy Trailblazer is not dead. Seriously, Chevrolet builds it today, an SUV version of the current Colorado. Remind me why we can’t buy it in America?
After inexplicably delaying delivery for months, it sounds like GM has finally started sending preordered Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks with the 2.8 Duramax diesel engine to dealerships and customers.
Now doesn’t seem like a good time to buy a diesel Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon. Just ask the people who have tried, and are without their trucks months after placing orders.
The Hope Technik LF5G “Red Rhino” is based off a Chevy Colorado-cousin Isuzu D-Max, but with no doors and a giant water pump on the back it looks a whole lot cooler. And you thought you crammed a lot of accessories onto you Ranger back in high school.
We’ve seen a few renderings and bits to make the 2015 Chevy Colorado a little more exciting, but this “400 horsepower” supercharged desert toy is my favorite modified version of the mid-sized truck so far.
“Diesel Chevy truck” sounds as American as John Wayne watching Jackass on a phone while he’s eating a hot dog and picking a fight at a baseball game. But even though the four-cylinder Duramax rumbling in the new Colorado and GMC Canyon has been around since 2011, it wasn’t actually fit for the U.S.A. until now.
I initially dismissed the the 2015 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss press release because no ZR2, no care. Then I saw that roll bar! It’s definitely not a safety device but it is the first OEM pickup truck roll bar that’s come out since, I think, I’ve been old enough to read. Come on automakers, bring these babies back!
Canadians are crazy for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. So much so that at least 400 people who wanted one will just have to wait ‘til next year while GM scrambles to stamp out more trucks.
GM fired us right up with the tough-and-tidy 2015 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 off-road concept, but all we get in showrooms are the flaccid Z71 trim and pointless "Trail Boss" package. If you want to see the Colorado turned into a solid off-roader that can you can still drive every day, the aftermarket has finally stepped…
