This concept is shown first time in 2014, since that time it draws attention. With modern design and performance, it will be more than interesting to potential buyers, but the question is when it will go out? As we heard, Chevrolet is getting ready to expand its pickup truck lineup further by going into production, introducing it as the 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 truck model. It comes with a compact size and with the skill to handle the rock-strewn terrain and the toughest filth tracks effectively. The new ZR2 comes will have as we see from images a smooth, arresting visual design and with the matchless creative concept, which is entirely different from that of the earlier model. This is because the final version will come with additional changes both inside and out with an effective off-road ability.
2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Changes
Regarding the exterior of the new Chevy Colorado ZR2 2017 truck, it comes with additional upgrades to make it a capable off-road vehicle. The front part will be equipped with a fresh set of LED or xenon headlamps and a massive grille with the honeycomb net to offer it an aggressive front look. Both the front and back bumpers come with the reduction in the size when compared to those of the previous model to offer a superior approach to rough surfaces. The front bumper will be fixed at an angle of 30.7 degrees, whereas the back one will be at an angle of 22.7 degrees. The new truck will have a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, wearing sturdy Goodyear Wrangler tires with a spare tire, which will be positioned within the bed. Both front and rear suspensions will be upgraded to offer a smooth and comfortable ride to the occupants.

The interior of the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is expected to come with a range of features, which will be both luxurious and comfortable when compared to those of the earlier models. Although the cabin has the same design as concept from 2014, however, it may experience some minor modern changes. The notable changes can be found in seats, which are now redesigned to offer improved support to its occupants. All seats within the ZR2 Colorado cabin will be made from high-quality materials and they will be upholstered in premium leather to offer a more luxurious look to the cabin. The cabin comes equipped with the latest version of the navigation system and double zone automatic temperature control, as well.
