Fifteen New Performance-Inspired Race Parts are Released for the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2


A fan-favorite since its inception, the newest Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 was built for ultimate performance both on and off the road. Starting at just $42,500 with a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, the Colorado ZR2 puts other midsize trucks to shame. On top of the impressive standard metrics that arrive standard in the latest Chevy Colorado ZR2, Chevy Performance in collaboration with Multimatic and Hall Racing has just released 15 different race components that have been both developed and validated with well over 10,000 miles of insane off-road racing. Over the last 24 months, famed off-road master Chad Hall helped test out these performance parts in a decked out Colorado ZR2 in various off-road races to see how they would last over time. Mark Dickens, executive director of Chevrolet Performance Variants, Parts and Accessories and Motorsports, explains, “Off-road racing is a brutal test of a vehicle, and especially its suspension components. Over two years, Chad mercilessly pushed these ZR2 parts to the limit for the ultimate in development and validation.”

Now that these new Colorado ZR2 performance parts have been tried and tested, they are ready to start making their way to the consumer market over the next couple of months. Chevy expects the parts to go on sale starting now and releasing all the way through early 2019. Let’s quickly go through all of the exciting new racing accessories that will be available for the new Colorado ZR2 coming soon.
