While we’re busy hitting the trails in the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2—we’ll return with our drive impressions this coming Monday—Chevy has dropped one last video to showcase the truck’s capabilities.
This time, the Colorado ZR2 hits the famed Rubicon Trail in California to put its rock crawling capabilities to the test. The Colorado ZR2’s standard front and rear electronic lockers are up to the task, though.
Chevrolet has long pegged the Colorado ZR2 as a purpose-built rock crawler, more in the spirit of Hummer than a high-power dune runner like the Ford F-150 Raptor. Remember, the Colorado ZR2 still makes do with the 3.6-liter LGZ V6 engine or the 2.8-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder unit.
Still, it’s plenty of grunt to pass the tightest, most technical trails, evidenced by the video above. If all of this seems appealing, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is arriving at dealerships this month. Not only that, but look for the ZR2 to make its racing debut this summer as well.
