According to Motor Trend, the new ZR2 will get an intelligent Multimatic DSSV damper system, a lifted suspension (by 2 inches), and a wider stance (by 3.5 inches). This new truck is designed for off-road performance, offering a taller ride height than the standard model, as well as a more rigid yet comfortable ride than previous model years. Plus, with a selectable Off-Road Mode, you can specially calibrate the engine, transmission, traction control, and suspension.

Under the hood of the latest Colorado is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates a whopping 308 horsepower, or alternatively a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine with up to 181 horsepower and best-in-class torque. When equipped with the turbocharged diesel, the new ZR2 can tow up to 7,700 pounds. Other great features include the front and rear locking differentials for added handling and control.

The 2017 Colorado ZR2 is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. To learn more about this pickup, stop by Stalker Chevrolet today.
