Enthusiasts have been yearning for an off-road version of the popular Chevrolet Colorado and it looks like they’re finally get their wish. The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 finally got a price which means it’ll be here sooner rather than later. Starting at an MSRP of $40,995, the Colorado ZR2 packs plenty of off-road features designed for the adventurous.
The 2017 Colorado ZR’s starting price is notably more than $2,000 cheaper than the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro when comparably equipped. The midsize truck boasts a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 306 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can also opt for the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine that delivers 186 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
Four-wheel drive comes standard. The V6 engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while diesel lovers will receive a six-speed automatic transmission. That’s just the tip of the off-road trail though.
Off-road features including a lifted suspension, Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve dampers, and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires. Tech-savvy drivers will enjoy an eight-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet MyLink and navigation.
Advanced safety features including an aluminum skid plate, rearview camera, and electronic automatic cruise control.
