The concept of new 2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 may not be quite the same as previous version, as there are changes, but on the other hand, some of those changes may be seen as significant. The accent of the designers has been shifted even further towards raw, unhinged power and off-road capability, even though a lot about this vehicle remains to be seen. With the release date months away, most aspects are still at the point of conjecture.
Exterior of 2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
As for the exterior, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado GM comes with a lot of awesome upgrades that should be useful when going off-road. The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is now both taller and wider, featuring a new set of headlights either Xenon or LED. The grille gives it an aggressive vibe with its honeycomb mesh. The bumpers have been reduced in size in order to provide better approach to uneven surfaces. The spare tires have now been placed inside the bed. The vehicle now comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, and the suspension system has also been upgraded on this model.
2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Interior
As for the interior of the 2016 Colorado ZR2, a lot has been left to speculate on, but it is probably going to come with a variety of features. The cabin design, will stay unchanged for the most part. One notable exception are the seats which have been redesigned for better back support. As for the usual trimmings, you should expect a Satellite navigation system, full leather upholstery and dual zone automatic climate control.
Engine and Transmission of 2016 Colorado ZR2
As it stands, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will be powered by only one (confirmed) engine, which is somewhat unusual. Unlike the base model, the ZR2 will get a brand new 2.8-liter inline 4 Duramax diesel engine producing 181 hp and 369 pound-feet of torque, reaching 60 in 10 seconds flat as well as the maximum speed of 125 mph; all this will enable the new ZR2 to effectively tow up to 7800 pounds. The transmission is going to be a modest 6-speed automatic, which is somewhat surprising considering it is one of the slower ones out there, but on the upside, it is easy to use. The 4×4 drive is no longer optional.
The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is built for power, not speed. That much is a given. This may explain the transmission and a brand new engine instead of the existing ones. Considering the price and the bang you get for your buck, the new ZR2 is definitely going to be a decent buy, as long as you know what you’re after. If not, we can’t help you.
