These two special edition 2018 Chevrolet Colorado trucks will make their public debut at this year’s SEMA Show on October 31st in Las Vegas.
The 2018 Colorado ZR2 Midnight Edition features an all-black exterior, black bowtie emblems and 17″ five-spoke black wheels, including the spare. It also has a black sport bar with off-road LED lights and ZR2 logos on the sport bar sail panels.
As for the ZR2 Dusk Edition, it’s identical to the ZR2 Midnight, although it can be purchased in all other ZR2 exterior finishes, plus the black accents.
“The Colorado ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Edition models offer customers even more personalization choices from the only company with three distinct trucks: midsize, full-size and full-size heavy-duty,” said Chevrolet exec, Jim Campbell. “Chevrolet offers more choices because the truck market is too diverse for a ‘one size fits most’ strategy.”
What sets the Colorado ZR2 apart from the regular model is the fact that it’s more adept to rock crawling, desert running and daily drivability. It features a 3.5″ (8.9 cm) wider track and sits 2 inches (5 cm) higher than its more “basic” counterpart.
ZR2 models also come with an off-road suspension and segment-exclusive Multimatic DSSV dampers – the first off-road shocks to feature position-sensitive spool valve technology. Other standard features include the front electronic locking differential, electronic locking rear differential, hill descent control, aluminum skid plate, off-road rocker protection, Autotrac transfer case, transfer case shield, four-wheel disc brakes and modified rear axle.
At SEMA, the ZR2 Midnight Edition crew cab model will be shown with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and will feature Chevrolet Accessories and Chevrolet Performance parts – such as a bed-mounting spare tire carrier, Performance Air Intake, Performance Exhaust and all-weather floor liners with ZR2 logos.
The ZR2 Dusk Edition on the other hand is finished in Summit White and features Chevy’s 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel, plus the diesel-exclusive Performance Cold Air Intake system. The two trucks will join approximately 20 other Chevrolet models in Las Vegas.
