A month and a half after the official arrival of the new-generation midsize pickup in Mexico, General Motors has just introduced the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 in the Latin country.
The automaker’s Mexican subsidiary introduced the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 in the domestic market on August 1st, expanding the third-generation Colorado’s range in Mexico with the most radical variant specially prepared for off-roading. The ZR2 is reaching the Mexican market for the first time, where the last-generation Colorado ZR2 was not sold.
“The all-new Chevrolet Colorado takes midsize pickups to the next level,” said Chevrolet Marketing Manager at GM Mexico, Wilberto del Ángel. “Colorado ZR2 is improved in every way highlighting its segment-leading new engine and performance. It also comes with a renewed design and exterior proportions, as well as a fully technological interior,” he added.
As such, the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 joins the LT and Z71 launching as the third trim level of the redesigned model in Mexico. It enhances performance and off-road capability with substantial changes that include a specific chassis, a high-performance suspension with Multimatic shock absorbers, skid plates and unique wheels. In addition, it boasts an exclusive front-end design and greater track width.
On a mechanical level, the 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 comes standard with the new 2.7L I4 L3B turbocharged engine in high-output configuration that develops 310 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque in that application, mated to the revised eight-speed automatic transmission. Naturally, the 2023 Colorado ZR2 integrates a standard 4×4 drivetrain and features five different driving modes.
The all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2 will begin arriving at the official Chevrolet dealer network in Mexico this month, as the model’s range-topping variant in the country. It offers a complete suite of technological features to stand as the connectivity leader in its segment, and interested customers will be able to personalize the truck with more than 30 available accessories. Pricing for the 2023 Colorado ZR2 in Mexico is as follows:
