The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 marks General Motors’ return to the off-road segment. Sure, there have been plenty of trucks with the Z71 package, but the coveted ZR2 badge means business on the trails.
Its on-road manners hold Chevrolet’s promise that the Colorado ZR2 is a truck for serious off-road use, but that it can also be driven to work the very next day. Thanks in a small part to the DSSV dampers hiding beneath—the first time such technology has been applied to an off-road truck.
Locking front and rear differentials, a higher ground clearance and all the right protection for essential components make it totally up to snuff for the trails. However, the ZR2 shouldn’t really be compared to the F-150 Raptor. While the Raptor will blast through sand dunes, the Colorado ZR2 is happier rock climbing.
