Chevrolet Announces Pricing for 2017 Colorado ZR2

Chevy Colorado ZR2 II

Chevrolet has announced pricing for the eagerly anticipated 2017 Colorado ZR2, the hot, off-road-capable mid-size pickup that it unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new model will go on sale this spring for a base price of $40,995 including a $940 destination fee. Chevy claims that this is nearly $2,500 less than comparably equipped competitors. For that sum, Chevy will sell you a loaded Colorado crew cab with the 3.6-liter V-6, standard four-wheel drive, the new eight-speed transmission and a laundry list of serious off-road equipment.

Modifications to the ZR2 include a 3.5-inch wider track front and rear, Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires, front and rear locking differentials, Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve dampers, full underbody skid plate protection, a 2-inch lift kit and more. Chevrolet says that the ZR2 transforms the Colorado into a true rock crawler and desert runner, with equipment featured on bigger trucks costing tens of thousands of dollars of more.

Closer to the ZR2's mission is the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, which starts at $43,700 with an automatic transmission (less if you stick with the manual), and features much of the ZR2's off-road equipment with a few exceptions. There's no front locking differential on the TRD Pro, nor the fancy whiz-bang dampers that the Colorado has, but the Tacoma does feature electronic Crawl Control, which performs amazing feats of traction when called upon. The Nissan Frontier Pro-4X is considerably less expensive, but it doesn't have nearly the level of off-road equipment that either the Tacoma or Colorado ZR2 have. Over at Ford, the F-150 Raptor is the top off-road truck you can get, costing almost $10,000 more but featuring far more space and capability than any other factory off-road pickup on the market. It was the winner of our 2017 Monster Factory Off-Road Challenge.

We welcome the new Colorado ZR2 and can't wait to get behind the wheel of one later this year to see if Chevy has brought the fight to the class-leading Tacoma TRD Pro.

Dumb dumb doe, I swear your getting worse and worse. You need to take a nap or something. WOW that was just painful. Not as painful as your chevy shake getting it's back side handed to it by an off road truck.

They ran a real truck (chevy, with 2000 + lbs weight capacity, 12,500 lbs towing capacity) against a toy. HAHAHA! Put a real truck up against the Chevy, oh wait, FORD doesn't make real trucks. HAHAHA! LOL! HAHAHA!

Poor Johnny dumb dumb, ran out of excuses did you. What a loser. In case you missed it, a V6 powered Ford off road truck kicked the snot out of a shaking Chevy truck by 1.2 seconds. That is a massive margin of butt spanking.

Haha loser dumb doe, lower elevation, 5.3sec. You junk shaking chevy can't come close to that.

No Johnny. You are the one here with only a GED. You are so dilution it's comical. Back to the article. I actually like this truck and would like to see GM offer this with the little diesel. Hopefully Ford will be paying attention to the take rate of these as it would be nice to see the Ranger with a mini Raptor package. Competition is always good no matter your favorite brand

Ford crying hard core in the 1960s too, they needed the government to step in cause GM was smoken em hard core, what over 60% market share. Ford clowns look up your history! HAHAHA! stop being cry baby libtards your a failure to the auto industry!!!!

Posted by: johnny doe | Feb 14, 2017 4:15:39 PM

Care to elaborate on your delusional post.
Drugs are bad, put down the crack pipe and step away from the silly putty.

Yup got a GED and Proud of it! Plus know my US history!

GMRGREAT/Johnny Doe are the biggest crybaby on this site.

1. They cry when a powerful Ford beats an outdated 2017 Chevy

2. Every month they cry that GM sells more by adding 4 different brands of trucks to Ford 1 brand.

3. Everytime a GM product loses, they cry nitpick data and say the Ford had 3.55 Rear End to Chevy 3.42, an off-road truck was uses

4. These guys are the biggest Poser Crybabies I've ever seen, tehy're probably obese with no kids and no wife driving a '92 Chevy 1500 living with daddy.

3.5L & 2.7L Ford can hand the GM 6.2L Boat Anchor it's Lunch

“By 1961 and 1962 GM was getting roughly 53% of the entire U.S. auto industry sales and the U.S. Justice Dept became interested. They were watching GM, and should GM get close to 60% they would consider breaking GM up. The precedent had already been set with Standard Oil years earlier, and their threat to GM had realism. GM thought that one of the ways they could cut that growth was to stop actively participating in motorsports and to cut their dollars there,” Wangers concluded.

Here a good hint look into it, Ford cryed bitch

And in the current time frame while chevy is stuck in the 60s, Ford is kicking GMs butt with an off road truck and Johnny dumb dumb has been crying for hours. Hahahahahahahahahahaha
😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫

@Yupp

I could not resist. There's so much there! "you are so dilution..." Are you kidding---Dude! You are messing with a commenter on PUTC and you say he's "dilution"

But here's the best part---small diesel.

The 2.8 diesel is accounting for less than 2% of the Colorados and Canyons that GM sells. Take rate? Are you kidding me?

Say who? GM offraod truck in not for sale yet and offer Ford craptor beating number in a class under HAHA!!!!!!!

What in the world did you say dumb dumb. Not so sure you should be proud of your GED.

@ Papa. I'm typing on a phone. You do know what a smart phone is don't you. I believe they do have them, even in the old folks home u live in. Yes I said take rate. Do u know what that means. Just because you don't think these trucks are a good investment for auto manufacturers shows you really have no idea what's going on inside the auto sector. I happen to work for an OEM. You, didn't think so. You are a has been that is out of touch with reality. Go back to watching CNN. I used to think you were a decent commentor but you must be off your meds. You are worse than Big Al

I doubt papa jim will be buying very many trucks in the future, more like an electric scooter to go up and down the halls of the assisted living facility. The only ones with smart phones there are the staff.

You can see papa jim at the beginnig

I think the poor Ford fans are so Jealous about this truck they have to change the subject by posting a video with a sport racing against a work truck.!!! So sad!!! Weak.

Now that's original.
Hahaha

I am speechless & laughing so hard at the same time about how dumb this johnny dumb dumb is, I mean he's even worse than GMSUCKS (or is it the same wanker/).
He is either brainwashes drank to much shaky GOVT motors cool-aid or off his rockers or high on meth or just forgot to take his meds or all of the above....wow, what an idiot!

Seen a Cummins towing a Raptor to the desert, with a Chevy broken down on the side of the road, thought he was gonna run what he brung. Oh my bad, the Ford Raptor being pulled was on it way out of the dunes, had bounced a shock tower through the hood jumping over a dune at 35 mph.

Um..

Ford did NOT survive without government money. T

They took 9.2 BILLION from the Feds in 2009, just months before the media destroyed GM and Chrysler for doing the same thing.

Ford's timing was perfect, because it made them APPEAR to have not been included.

@gms and johnny, sorry you guys have to continually defend the twins, if you aint first, your last

It looks like little Johnny had a melt down last night. I think he was just hitting letters on his key board with no rhyme or reason. Thoroughly entertaining for sure.

@WXman

I enjoy bitch slapping these Ford fan boys as much as anybody but let's be fair here.

GM and Chrysler did the unthinkable---they shamelessly allowed Bush and Obama to hose their bondholders. When a company goes under, the bonds are usually the first obligations to be honored by the bankruptcy court because they are loans, not shares of stock.

Second, the bondholders in GM's case included a lot of teachers and public employee pension funds, not wall street fat cats like the libtards in the media would have you believe. A lot of regular folks got screwed in that deal.

Add to that the fact that GM didn't have to pay money back and was immune to taxes for several years.

Wow, the little FORD boys sure stepped up their attacks and defenses on this article. Too many people are concerned about the RAPTOR being threatened by a competing product. It's so funny watching people defend these toys, especially the Raptor.

For the price GM is charging, they should use a regular fuel version of the LGW engine [twin-turbo 3.0 V6: 404hp@5700, 400ft-lbs@2500-5100]
So 362hp & 369ft-lbs should make this move smartly.
