Chevrolet says the 2017 Colorado ZR2 sits in the segment of one, with exclusive off-road attributes and mid-size proportions to take it through the toughest, tightest trails.
The brand wants to prove those claims with a new video which shows the Colorado ZR2 taking on the Badlands off-road park.
With 800 acres of dirt, sand, and mud, this 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 is right at home at Badlands. Engineers and development teams put this pickup through its paces to prove the brand’s claims all while taking a couple of shots at the Ford Raptor.
Chevrolet likes to point out the Colorado ZR2 is a much smaller off-roader. Translation: it can go places the Raptor can’t.
The Colorado ZR2 is 24.3 inches narrower, 8 inches shorter, 1,000 pounds lighter than the Ford Raptor. However, the Colorado ZR2 isn’t meant to accomplish the same things.
And while the Raptor boasts bonkers power from the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Colorado ZR2 scoots around with either the 3.6-liter V6 engine or the 2.8-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder mill.
That’s not a bad thing, because the Colorado ZR2 is more of a rock crawler—in the same vein as the Ram Power Wagon—than high-power sand dune surfer.
All the capabilities on display come at a fairly affordable price as well. The Colorado ZR2 starts at $40,995 and its standard equipment includes the magical Multimatic DSSV dampers, 3.6-liter V6 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires.
