TFLtruck, an opinion leader in the world of trucks, has awarded the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 with two prestigious accolades that highlight the truck’s capabilities and functionality. Further proving how the Colorado ZR2 is a great option for those who enjoy an adventurous lifestyle and like to go off-road.

“We’re honored that [TFLtruck] recognize how strong of a contender ZR2 is, not only among midsize pickups but off-road vehicles of all kinds.” – Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing, Chevrolet Truck

The 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2 was named both the 2018 Gold Hitch Truck of the Year and the 2018 Gold Hitch Best Off-Road Truck by the editors at TFLtruck. The editors specifically mentioned how the ground clearance, approach angle, front and rear lockers, the standard tires and the dimensions of the truck helped in the decision for the ZR2 to be names Best Off-Road Truck. To determine the top truck, all of the trucks are tested by a run through the Cliffhanger 2.0 off-road trail in the Colorado Rockies. This trail has many challenges to test the trucks, like a 20% incline, loose rocks, a large rock obstacle at the top and a split in trail.

There are also other aspects of the 2018 Colorado ZR2 that led to TFLtruck naming the midsize pickup truck the 2018 Truck of the Year. They highlight the impressive off-road capabilities, functionality, ease-of-use and interior comfort that the ZR2 offers. As well as the class-exclusive features that the Colorado ZR2 has, like the front and rear electronic locking differentials, available diesel engine option and the first-ever application of the Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve damper technology.

The ZR2 is different from the regular Colorado with 3.5-inch wider track and the suspension has been lifted by 2-inches. Plus, the 2018 ZR2 is equipped with rocker protection for better performance over rocks and the front and rear bumpers were modified for better clearance.
