For you Chevy fans out there you’ll probably know that the ZR emblem is a potent letter combination. This ZR badge was and is seen on Chevrolets with a bunch of extra lively horses under their hoods; the latest ZR is now on the popular mid-sized Colorado pickup. The Colorado ZR2 has arrived and can be visited with the friendly folks at Westside Chevrolet at 23001 Katy Freeway in Katy, TX 77450 or call them at 281.392.3200 today!
You will quickly see that this new ZR2 Chevy pickup sets up much higher than a regular Colorado and has bigger tires and other goodies. All for your off-roading and four wheeling adventures. The ZR2’s taut mix of steel and aluminum looks darn right menacing in its wide and assertive stance. It comes with new bumpers front and rear, a bulging hood with a large black stripe down the middle, up-swept beefy fenders that give the Chevy Colorado ZR2 that rough and ready appearance. With it’s blacked out grill and the large Chevrolet gold bow-tie, this pickup can’t go anywhere unnoticed.
Underneath the handsome styled exterior, the ZR2 gets a new suspension with taller springs, longer shocks and cast iron control arms and the live rear axle is wider to equal the increased front track. Also, not one but two skid plates are fitted from the radiator to the back of the oil pan; the second one protects the transfer case. As the Big Bad Wolf would say: “All to make your travels off road more efficient and less troublesome.”
There are more add-ons to make your Colorado ZR2 a great on and off road machine. You are receiving all the significant off-road technology standard with the Chevy ZR2 as well as a wealth of other features. Chevrolet offers the ZR2 in crew and extended cab configurations with a laundry list of available options. When you slide up into those very comfy and yet sturdy seats for that enjoyable test drive you and yours will quickly realize how roomy, innovative and versatile its cabin is with focus on the driver.
Everything you desire for communication and entertainment is at your fingertips with GM’s highly rated MyLink infotainment system. The other exciting part is what is living under its handsome hood. The standard engine in the ZR2 is GM’s tried and true 3.6-liter DOHC V6 that delivers 308 lively horses and 275 lb-ft of asphalt/dirt grabbing torque. The six is mated with a smooth eight-speed automatic; this setup will get you quickly to 60mph in 6 seconds. The other available engine is the diesel, which has the six-speed automatic and gives you 186 aggressive horses with an awesome 369 lb-ft of torque for those slow moving rock climbing adventures.
