Expected performance specs for Colorado ZR2
The brand new Chevy Colorado ZR2 is set to turn the rest of the midsize pickup truck class on its ear. For a long time, nimble and lightweight midsize trucks have been the preferred models for people to take out for some series off-roading. The new Colorado ZR2 is setting itself apart from the competition by being ready to take on the toughest trails as soon as an owner picks it up from the Don Wheaton showroom. Since the unveiling of the truck last month (Nov. 2016), quite a few people have come to the dealership asking about the performance specs of the Chevy Colorado ZR2.
What kind of engines come with the Colorado ZR2?
Future buyers of the upcoming Chevy Colorado ZR2 will have one of two engine options to choose from. Most people will leave the Don Wheaton property behind the wheel of the Colorado ZR2 with an all new 3.6-liter, V-6 engine under the hood making 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. While the new Chevy power plant uses the same amount of displacement as the previous engine, the new one comes with a boost in horsepower as well as a few fuel-saving technologies that haven’t been included before. Additionally, the Duramax turbocharged diesel engine and its 369 pound-feet of torque is also available.
What makes the Colorado ZR2 an off-road ready truck?
The most important component in making the Chevy Colorado ZR2 such a is the Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve and its more precise method of handling bumps. Furthermore, the new Colorado ZR2 comes with front and rear electronic limited slip differentials on the automaker’s AutoTrac transfer case. This gives drivers a potential for up to nine different configurations.
