The Chevrolet Colorado has proven itself to be one of the most capable trucks in the industry, but now it’s facing its greatest challenge yet. The United States Army traverses some of the toughest landscapes that the world has to offer. As such, they need a vehicle that can conquer the roughest terrain imaginable. The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 army truck is the vehicle for the job.

The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 army truck is silent, sneaky, and tough. The model is powered by a hydrogen fuel-cell electric powertrain that’s silent and produces water as its only emission. That’s a near-180-degree turn, green-energy-wise, from the current diesel-powered Humvees the army currently uses.

The big Humvees haven’t given the army a reputation for being silent, but the Colorado ZH2 could change that. The large mud tires, silent powertrain, and near-invisible heat profile make it a hard vehicle to detect.

The prototype is currently undergoing a year of testing by the army in some of the roughest conditions imaginable. The truck will make its way to a number of army bases throughout the country as it proves it mettle time and time again.

If testing proves successful, we may very well be looking at the next generation of army transport vehicles.

We here at Stalker Chevrolet are proud to see such a capable truck undergoing testing in the field.

Family Reunion at the Army/Navy Game Receives Bonus from Chevrolet

During the Army/Navy football game every year, Chevrolet and Wish for Our Heroes come together to hold a military family reunion during half time. This year, as the family of US Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson reunited, they received a bit of surprise—a brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

“As we’ve seen with the Thompsons and millions of others, military families make huge sacrifices for our country, and it feels good to celebrate Sgt. Thompson’s homecoming with a brand-new truck,” said Dan Akerson, former General Motors Chairman and CEO and a graduate of the US Naval Academy.

We at Stalker Chevrolet were thrilled to see the Colorado join the family reunion at the Army/Navy game.

Sergeant Thompson served our country in two deployments. The family recently lost their house at Fort Riley in Kansas to a fire, which they are still recovering from. Hopefully, the Chevrolet Colorado will help them do just that. The Colorado was recently named Motor Trend magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year, showing that its capabilities and perfect size will make sure the Thompsons have a dependable vehicle.
