The Roadster Shop Creates Custom Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR is an off-road capable truck unlike any other in its class. The Roadster Shop, a company known for taking muscle cars to new heights, took to the Colorado ZR2 with pleasure. The end result is a muscular pickup that looks like it can take on the world.Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 - Tom Naquin Chevrolet

To begin, The Roadster Shop got ahold of a 2015 Colorado and transformed it into a vehicle designed to perfect recon on off-road racing courses. The race truck features a vast array of amenities and looks much different than any production model we’ll likely ever see.

The “ColoRADo,” as it was christened, features a stock cab with much larger fender flares. The custom freight brings a new position to the engine to optimize weight distribution. While the styling is certainly something to behold, what’s under the hood could be even more impressive.

The custom Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 boasts a 7.0-liter V8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that pumps out 730 hp. An upgraded suspension allows drivers to traverse some of the roughest trails imaginable in complete comfort.

The roll cage, racing seats, new dashboard and steering wheel, and digital instrument cluster certainly aren’t standard equipment either. Although the truck is just a custom job done by some creative experts, it’s still a sight to take in before it roars over the mountainside and out of sight.

We here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet can’t help but be impressed by the custom Chevrolet Colorado ZR2!
