The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 could eventually change the landscape of military vehicles. There are numerous benefits to a vehicle like the Colorado ZH2, which makes use of a hydrogen fuel cell propulsion method.
Motor Authority recently paid a visit to Fort Carson, Colorado, where the Colorado ZH2 is undergoing tests by the U.S. Army, and the truck doesn’t only look capable, it is capable.
The truck was a development project between General Motors, Chevrolet and the U.S. Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). Each party worked to contribute to a final product that can not only withstand the stress of combat and any terrain but a vehicle that can also keep soldiers safer.
The Colorado ZH2 lacks much of a heat signature thanks to the hydrogen fuel cell. The army is a big—no heat signature from an internal combustion engine means the vehicle is even more stealthy. Its only byproduct—water—can also be filtered and be made drinkable if necessary.
