If you love the off-road capability of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 but think its 308 horsepower 3.6-liter LGZ V6 engine leaves a little to be desired performance-wise, then you may like the latest tuning package from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
The highly-regarded tuning company released details of its new tuning package for the Colorado ZR2 this week, which includes a more powerful, supercharged version of the truck’s factory V6 engine.
Lingenfelter elected to use an Edelbrock supercharger for this package, boosting output by 35 percent – which is equivalent to around 108 horsepower. That means the truck should be producing about 416 horsepower when the package official goes on sale – plenty for an off-road vehicle.
The tuning kit will also be 50-state emissions compliant, so you’re free to enjoy this supercharged off-roader even if you live in a California emissions law state. Other upgrades will include a lift to make way for bigger wheels and tires (although the Multimatic DSSV dampers will remain) and a Lingenfelter exterior decal kit.
Lingenfelter is still developing this tuning package, it seems, so more information will be released at a later date.
