We have known for a long time just how great the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is, from its off-roading capabilities to its comfortable ride quality. But it has now been made official by TFLtruck, who has just given the Colorado ZR2 both the 2018 Gold Hitch Truck of the Year and the 2018 Gold Hitch Best Off-Road Truck Awards.
The ZR2 was praised for its “qualities of a capable off-road vehicle” as well as its “ease of use and comfort as a daily driver”. These are the two qualities that many truck shoppers are looking for in a pickup. The Colorado was also commended on its standard Multinamic DSSV dampers and their “ability to handle rough terrain” while at the same time boasting a “confident and comfortable ride on the street and highway.”
To determine the winner of the 2018 Gold Hitch Best Off-Road Truck, TFLtruck tested all of the competitors on the Cliffhanger 2.0 off-road trail in the Colorado Rockies. On the trail the trucks must conquer a 20 percent incline, a “Truth-or-Dare split,” large and loose rocks, and much more.
According to TFLtruck, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2’s “ground clearance, approach angle, front and rear lockers, Goodyear Duratrac tires, and midsize dimensions” are to thank for bringing it to first place.
Compared to the standard Colorado, the ZR2 has a 3-and-a-half-inch wider track and suspension, a 2-inch factory lift, functional rockers, and modified front and rear bumpers for better performance and off-road clearance. Some of its class-exclusive features include an available diesel engine and front and rear electronic locking differentials.
