Chevrolet further expands the 2018 Colorado ZR2 midsize truck model range with the introduction of the ZR2 Dusk and Midnight editions. These factory-customized trucks will be shown at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV Oct 31 – Nov 3rd. SEMA is an aftermarket industry show that also sees many OEM production-bound models and concept vehicles.
As you can see, the ZR2 Midnight edition goes dark with an all-black exterior that includes black emblems, 17-inch five-spoke rims, and a sports bar in the back with LED off-road lights. The truck you see in these images is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that is mated to a 8-speed automatic transmission. Chevrolet Performance air intake and exhaust systems round out the SEMA truck. These performance parts are already available for purchase via Chevrolet dealer for other V6-powered Colorados (not just ZR2 trucks).
The Dusk edition offers the same wheels, emblems, and sports bar, but it can be had in all available Colorado ZR2 exterior colors. The ZR2 Dusk extended cab that’s shown here is finished in Summit White color and a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel under the hood. Chevy is also featuring a performance cold air intake system on this diesel truck.
If you are not yet familiar with the Colorado ZR2. It is the most off-road capable truck that Chevrolet currently produces. It sits two inches higher and 3.5 inches wider than a regular Colorado. It offers front and rear locking differentials. It rides on Multimatic DSSV spool-valve shocks and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. The truck has redesigned front bumper and fascia for improve approach angle, and engine oil pan and transfer case are protected by skid plates underneath.
