GM has acknowledged the 4×4 and off-road potential of the Colorado. For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet is offering the Z71 Trail Boss package, building on the Z71 Off-Road model but adding unique visual bits and more aggressive tires. We’re hoping for a vehicle more in the image of the Colorado ZR2 Concept(top and bottom images).
The ZR2, which debuted at the 2014 LA Auto Show, featured more aggressive approach and departure angles, as well as beefed up skid plates, and grippy Good Year Wrangler tires. It also featured electronically locking differentials front and rear, a winch built into the front bumper, and GM’s new turbo diesel inline-4 under the hood.
It is a long shot, and we don’t have a lot to go on, but if we were to speculate on what the best vehicle GM could offer for the trail– the ZR2 concept as a production vehicle makes almost too much sense not to build.
