In the Colorado ZR2, Chevrolet has fielded a purpose-built pickup truck that boasts a number of exclusives.
It’s the only midsize truck available with a diesel engine, the only one to come standard with true “off-road” suspension and the only one with locking front and rear differentials.
So, who cares?
Chevrolet engineers made a splash at last year’s L.A. Auto Show by bringing a number of pre-production ZR2s to a gritty industrial space they’d rented near the Convention Center.
For the duration of the show, Chevy hosted wannabe terrain-tacklers eager to show off their off-road skills on a bumpy, rocky course fabricated at the former factory site.
