Chevy has revealed two new special versions of his Colorado truck, focusing on both off-road and street drivers to mark the four-year anniversary of the pickup nameplate's return. The medium-sized truck was restored in late 2014, and since then, nearly 430,000 have been sold, Chevrolet said today.
For the road there are 2019 Chevrolet Colorado RST. It picks up where other RST editions leave, like Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado. It is based on Colorado's existing LT trim.
For the special edition, Chevy puts a monochromatic exterior offset package with black belt line and body page lists. The tailgate becomes black badging, for bowtie, Colorado and RST badging. It also adds 20-inch wheels ̵
The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Runner, meanwhile, is undoubtedly even more interesting. First, Chevy takes a Colorado Z71 off-road package, as it then adds underbody protection from Colorado ZR2. There are also stamped aluminum front and middle disc plates, along with functional rocker protection. 17-inch Goodyear Duratrac tire is finished.
It's entering what's now a growing range of off-road Colorado alternatives. Those who just need the basics have the Colorado Z71, with its off-road suspension and auto-locking rear differential. Chevy also utilizes it with 17-inch terrain vehicles.
Then comes the Colorado Z61 Trail Runner, and then Colorado ZR2. Things get more serious there, with a 3.5-inch wider track and a 2-inch spring lift. Electronic front and rear latch differentials are standard on ZR2, along with Multimatic DSSV damper.
Finally, the Colorado ZR2 Bison crosses it even further. Five hot-stamped Boron steel ski slabs, along with stamped steel front and rear bumper with front winch provisions and rear recycling points, make it Chevy's most robust Colorado. It will be sold early in 2019.
Both the RST and Z71 Trail Runner will get ZR2 Bison's flowing "CHEVROLET" lettered grille as well. Chevy will offer it as an alternative to other Colorado models, also priced at $ 395 before tax and installation. No words on prices for the Colorado RST or Z71 Trail Runner at this point.
