Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 To Feature Camaro Z/28 Advanced Shock Setup3
The spy photographers over at Autoblog managed to get up close and personal with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, crawling underneath a test mule to grab a closer look at what’s going on. Off-road enthusiasts are going to like what they see.
The inbound Colorado ZR2 features the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28’s spool valve damping system, or “Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve.” What does this mean? It means the Colorado ZR2 can go really fast over harsh terrains, and has a minimal reset time over harsh impacts.
The setup is not like the well-known Magnetic Ride Control, but instead this suspension features enormous predictability for off-road excursions and comfortable on-road behavior. Firm, but not harsh, ya dig?
Previously, cost meant this setup was reserved exclusively for race cars, and the fifth-gen Z/28, which basically eas a road-going race car. But, with time, the technology has gotten less expensive, and that means the Colorado ZR2 is going to be the off-road pickup so many have clamored for, for a very long time.

I am going to wager this will be a $51.999 to $56.999 priced truck.
For sure it will be a great vehicle but more than I would pay and most others will pay,
This is the conundrum here make it the best and then the price gets out of hand.
I wish they would make this more ala cart and let us pick the parts we want. They did this with the ZQ8 and you could get the engine and trim you want at a price you can afford.
This is great as scott3 said $51.999 to $56.999 priced truck. People pay that much for the Ford craptors that bend frames, midsize truck lower to build cost equals profits! Plus it will fit down more trails and flow cross mud/sand lot better as its lighter. Turd or trd taco fans will flock to it. Win win for GM!
Oh boy, get one of these and you won’t have to sit in traffic. Drive over the stopped vehicle on your right and just rip through the yards and parks to get to work. What a time saver. Are these vehicles really necessary?
