The mid-size off-road pickup took home the publication’s Best Pickup Truck of 2018 award after rigorous testing and a final conclusion that Chevrolet did not have to build the ZR2, or make it so good. But it did anyway.
Judges lauded the truck for its off-road behavior and capability, but also praised it for its on-road dynamics. Chevrolet consistently told media the ZR2 is a truck that owners can drive to work in the morning and take out on the trail in the evening. The 2018 Colorado ZR2 accomplishes just that.
The Colorado’s reintroduction was a big gamble, and the ZR2 doubled down. So far, it’s a winning bet for Chevy and GM.
