2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Off-road Test

The most recent 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is definitely ready to hit the dealerships. Thanks to the off-road test drive, we are able to share this review with you, and we hope so that you will enjoy in the next text.

First of all, we have to mention that the appearance of the coming model looks quite amazing. We can see massive exterior design with so many unique elements. Also, this model will come on the market with so many upgrades.

We can expect it in every segment of the vehicle, but especially in terms of technologies and in exterior design. As we know, there is a limited number of midsize pickup variants available in the United States, which means that this model will definitely become very popular.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 – Appearance

As we mention in short introduction, the exterior design of the future 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will be phenomenal. The appearance will provide so many aggressive lines, and that will make this model even more attractive compared to the previous one.

Also, we can see some upgrades to the front and rear bumpers, and that fact will certainly improve entry and departure angles. Furthermore, speaking of the front fascia, here we can see amazingly huge and massive front grille that will be equipped with the small Chevy emblem in the middle.

The refreshed ZR2 Colorado is definitely the right choice for off road drive. Why do we think so? It is simple. This model has so many off-road tricks. First of all, we have to say that the new model comes with front aluminum skid plates and hill descent control.

In addition, we can expect rear and front Lockable differentials (Eaton ELocker) as well as stainless steel rock sliders. Finally, at the sides of this model, we can see 31” Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires specially designed for rough terrains.

The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will provide 8.9″ of ground clearance which is excellent. Also, we can expect a 1 1/2″ lift and 1/2″ larger tire compared to the stock Colorado. If you wonder how this model goes on the road, don’t worry, it is equally good on the road as off the road. Okay, maybe not equally, but still, it is very good.

The future 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will provide Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) damper technology. The DSSV technology is also used in the Z/28 Camaro in 2016.
