Which off-roader is faster? Will it be the new Chevy Colorado ZR2 crew cab with the 3.6L gas V6, or the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon with a 3.6L gas V6?
The Recon edition of the Wrangler is the most off-road worthy Jeep JK you can currently purchase from the factory. It has a half inch lift, stronger Dana 44 axles, cast differential covers, bigger rock sliders, and more. It’s powered by a familiar 3.6L Pentastar V6 that is good for 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed automatic transmission does the shifting.
The Chevy Colorado ZR2 uses a recently redesigned 3.6L V6 that is rated at 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This gas V6 is backed up by an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ZR2 is the most off-road worthy Chevy pickup truck due to its specialize suspension that gives the truck a higher ground clearance and wider stance. The ZR2 also offers rock sliders for additional off-road protection.
