Runs Off-Road and On Diesel – Chevy Colorado ZR2 Wows in L.A.

Auto Shows are our favorite time of year. Chevrolet continues to wow at each one and the Los Angeles Auto Show was no different. In L.A., Chevy showed off the Colorado ZR2 Concept – a truck that runs on diesel and is capable of tackling any off-road terrain.

While the Silverado has taken most of the fame, the new Colorado is quickly gaining traction, literally and figuratively. The Colorado ZR2 Concept boasts all-new race-inspired monotube shocks and springs to give the truck a little lift and a lot of aggression. The ZR2 package also hosts a pair of front tow hooks, integrated bumper-mounted winch, and integrated aluminum tow hooks on the rear bumper.

Taking this baby off roading is just the first step. Under the hood of the Colorado ZR2 Concept roars a Duramax turbo-diesel engine expected to pull around 369 lb.-ft. of torque. The inline four cylinder with 6-speed auto transmission will likely become the most fuel-efficient pickup on the market.

Chevy revealed this trusty concept to gauge interest. So far, we’re a huge fan. To learn more about other Colorado concepts and future Chevrolets, follow us on Twitter for all of the latest and greatest updates.
