We’ve announced already that Chevrolet’s smaller pickup truck may host some changes for the next year, but we haven’t expected this. As you may figure out, the manufacturer is working on the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Utility Truck, which will be an interesting option for many companies. As we see it, it can serve for many purposes, starting from the oil industry and forestry, all the way to heating and air conditioning services.
Changes and Updates
The 2019 Colorado ZR2 Utility Truck has been spotted without any camouflage, so we see what’s new. The first detail we saw is a snorkel, but that’s not everything we see. No, the rear end sports a totally new rear bumper and LED reverse lights. The tailgate features ZR2 badge, while the bed gets the utility treatment. Chevrolet may give a touch to the suspension as well. Unofficially, the truck will get one additional inch of ground clearance and significantly larger tires. The prototype you see is using standard 31-inch tires, but the ZR2 Utility Truck should have 33 inches. The interior will reportedly also host a few changes. Still, don’t expect anything big, but just some useful aids for the driver.
Performance wise, the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Utility Truck will use a familiar, yet awesome 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine. The oil-burner unit will continue to deliver 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The mid-size utility will also offer a gasoline option. It’s the amazing 3.6-liter V6, which will motivate the truck with 308 horsepower 275 lb-ft of twist. Both options will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Price and Arrival
Since the prototype doesn’t use any camouflage, it’s going to be introduced very soon, probably before the end of the year. The carmaker will probably set the starting price at around $40K.
