Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Concept Turns Heads at LA Auto Show
Chevrolet just reintroduced the midsize Colorado pickup and now it is showing what this truck could look like with extreme off-road capabilities in the Colorado ZR2 Concept. This concept was displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which just came to a close at the end of November.
The ZR2 Concept features aggressive styling and builds on the capabilities of the current Colorado Z71 and previous ZR2 production models.
“From the bold stance to the trail-ready special equipment, the Colorado ZR2 is all about the fun of driving where the pavement ends – and doing it in characteristic Chevy style,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager, in a statement. “Chevrolet has a heritage of the ZR2 representing the ultimate in production-based off-road capability and we’ll gauge the public’s interest in this concept as we continue to explore the possibilities for the all-new Colorado.”
To make the Colorado ZR2 Concept more than capable when the road gets rough, it has new front and rear fascias that give it greater clearance when approaching and leaving bumpy terrain. It is also four inches wider than a Colorado Z71, which gives it greater stability on rough ground.
The concept also tackles the terrain with mono-tube coil-over shock absorbers with remote-mounted fluid reservoirs, electronic-locking front and rear differentials, and more.
Chevrolet says that if this concept is well-received, it could open the door for a future production model. Here’s hoping one will eventually make its way to us here at Carter Chevrolet!
