Finally, finally, finally. The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 has been spied in semi-production flesh, you know, the killer off-road show truck from the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show that General Motors has been winky-faced about bringing to production for nearly two years.
Off-road rubber is barely covered by a likely pre-production variant of the ZR2’s prerunner-inspired, offering up optimal ground clearance. And, it looks as if the outer corners of the front bumper could be removable to access the truck’s maximum approach angle, as AG points out. We’re hopeful there are King off-road racing shocks hiding behind this prototype, too, one of the major talking points of the 2014 Colorado ZR2 concept.
The raised ride height is likely sticking around to house even more aggressive off-road tires than what is seen in the photos, and it’s easy to see the additional ground clearance. The ZR2 concept featured four-inches of added width, and two additional inches of extra ground clearance.
What’s powering the truck remains a mystery, but it seems likely Chevrolet could show the midsize off-roader at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show later this year.
