Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 scheduled for a facelift in 2020
The ZR2 variant of the Chevrolet Colorado has been on the market since 2017 and is due a minor design update, which is what it will receive next year. The North American carmaker claims the new aggressive design better suits the capabilities of the off-road truck.
The photos show the 2020 facelift version sporting a large word ‘Chevrolet’ on the front grille, with the company logo unceremoniously displaced to the left side. At the rear end, the logo is missing altogether, replaced by another marque name spelled out in letters.
Like before, the update will ship with a naturally aspirated gasoline V6 (3.6 liters, 313 hp / 233 kW, 373 Nm / 275 lb-ft) and a turbocharged diesel engine (2.8 liters, 181 hp / 135 kW, 500 Nm / 369 lb-ft). The former connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the latter makes do with a simpler six-speed auto.
The company has a special version of the truck, called the Colorado ZR2 SEMA vehicle, trimmed with dozens of off-road options and ready to rumble at the upcoming SEMA show in Las-Vegas.
The ZR2 2020 will celebrate its international premiere in Nevada in a few days, but sales will not begin until next year. Prices remain unknown, but are hardly a major point of concern, given that more than half a million Colorado pickups found their owners over the past five years.
