The experts over at Kelley Blue Book have determined the Chevy Colorado ZR2 to be one of the best off-road pickup trucks on sale today.
KBB recently put together a list of the Top 15 Best Off-Road Trucks in 2021, including ten brand new trucks and five that are ideal to purchase used. The Chevy Colorado ZR2 was included on this list, with KBB saying the mid-size truck is “one of the most capable and versatile,” of its type on sale today.
KBB praised the standard Multimatic DSSV dampers that come on the Chevy Colorado ZR2, noting they can “take a pounding without overheating.” Editors also praised the truck’s “powerful 3.6-liter gas V6 engine,” and available “torque-rich,” diesel four-cylinder and noted the truck “excels at slow-speed crawling thanks to the selectable front and rear locking differentials and more aggressive tires.”
All in all, KBB’s editors gave the Chevy Colorado ZR2 a score of 4.1 out of a possible 5. The best-performing truck included in KBB’s list was the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty Tremor, which received a score of 4.8 out of 5 thanks to its capability, abundance of underbody skid plates and unstoppable 7.3L V8 engine. The only other GM truck included in KBB’s ranking was the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4, which the publication said was a “solid package that fits nicely in between a more extreme Raptor or TRX and a standard-issue 4×4 pickup.”
Prices for the 2022 Chevy Colorado ZR2 start at $45,395 including destination and freight for a Crew Cab model with the 3.6L LGZ V6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The truck is also available with a 2.8L Duramax turbodiesel four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic, which raises the base price to $48,895. The truck is produced exclusively at the GM Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri.
