Stopping by the local Chevrolet Dealership as a teenager in the late 90's was always a lot of fun. I distinctly remember strolling through the models on display, dreaming and drooling over the Corvette Grand Sport and S-10 ZR2. As I climbed through the display vehicles I also was quite guilty of grabbing the dealer model information books by the armload to obsessively read over later at home.

Today, these dealership model information books seem like relics of the past. I haven't looked at one in years but imagine my surprise to find out they still get printed to help consumers make buying decisions on the show room floor. Chevrolet also, naturally, publishes them online in digital format.

As you "flip" through the book and read the details, it seems like all of the information is standard fare and widely known. But it turns out we can find a nice little new nugget of information about the all new ZR2 buried in the details.

The footnote for the colors page reads "Deepwood Green Metallic ...ZR2 Only". And that's how today we learned that the ZR2's unique shade of green has a name and you'll be able to buy it for yourself. Ahh, brings back old memories.

I have the dealer catalog for every car I ever owned (including a 1969 Fury) except one ('79 Supra). I still look at them sometimes.

It needs at least a 4.3 in it. It would be at another level if a turbo 4.3 could be had.

Would LOVE to see one with a 5.3 like they put in the previous Colorado. With that combo, you'd have a real sport truck!!

Unfortunately for me....The last couple vehicles have been sold with, "sorry don't have and literature on that" Another example of GM's Struggle, Dealer etc...Communication really the customer should not have to do any of that.

 

On this last 2016 GMC Sierra I had to call the Dealer the next day and Inquire where is the Owners manual? They couldn't believe it or could I.......

      The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 has earned Cars.com's Pickup Truck of 2018 Award. The Colorado was joined by the Silverado 3500 HD as a nominee. Mark Williams of Cars.com in his write up of the ZR2’s win said the ZR2 is, “…the most distinctive vehicle that's come along in years.” Williams went on to say that besides its off-road capabilities, Cars.com testers were also impressed with, “…how well it does standard pickup truck work, like hauling 1,200 pounds or more of payload in the bed or towing a 5,000-pound trailer off the bumper." That must be one heck of a bumper! We typically tow using the trailer hitch, but that's just us being silly.  
       
      Paul Edwards, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing, commented on the win by the ZR2, saying “…ZR2 builds on the boldness of the Colorado program. Our midsize truck line has defied naysayers by selling more than 300,000 trucks in three years, and ZR2 adds forward-looking technology and innovation to the recipe to reach an entirely new group of off-road enthusiast customers.” By “Naysayers”, Edwards is referring to the knuckleheads at RAM and Ford who have sat out the midsize truck explosion for the past half-decade, missing out on literally millions of vehicle sales as a result of that poor planning.
