It was a good year for the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 at the TFLtruck awards. In fact, the off-road-ready pickup earned two awards from TFLtruck last month: the 2018 Gold Hitch Truck of the Year award and the 2018 Gold Hitch Best Off-Road Truck. What was it about the Colorado ZR2 that resounded so well with the TFLtruck team? The same things that customers love about the off-road Colorado variant—its capability, ease of use, and “comfort as a daily driver,” which is not something you would ordinarily expect of a truck built to dominate off-road.
Gold Hitch Off-Road Truck Award
Before determining the winner of its 2018 Gold Hitch Off-Road Truck award, TFLtruck took competing trucks such as the Colorado ZR2 to the Cliffhanger 2.0 off-road trail, which is situated in the Colorado Rockies. Given that the Chevy Colorado is named after that very state and its mountains, the competition didn’t stand a chance. “TFLtruck is one of the opinion leaders in the truck world and a top publication dedicated to pickups,” remarked Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing, Chevrolet Truck. “We’re honored that they recognize how strong of a contender ZR2 is, not only among midsize pickups but off-road vehicles of all kinds.”
What sets the Colorado ZR2 apart? According to Chevy, it’s effectively in a segment of its own and offers class-exclusive features like front and rear electronic locking differentials and an available diesel engine.
