Baseball's 2017 All-Star Game MVP, Robinson Canó, chose a new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport over a new 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 last night following the game. Financially, this is a sound move. The Grand Sport starts at $67K and the ZR2 ends at about $48k. Money aside, which would you have opted to drive away if you had the choice?

 

In case you missed the game, Seatle's Canó, who went 1-for-2 in the contest with a 10th inning home run, RBI and a run scored. Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet, commented on the game, saying, “Robinson Canó turned in a tremendous performance tonight and is an excellent example to all baseball fans, and especially our kids, that hustle, determination, and teamwork are what wins, and that is why Chevrolet is proud to present the MVP award."

 

Chevy didn't say if the ZR2 has a diesel engine or not, let's assume it had whatever you would prefer. What's your choice? Vette, or ZR2?

Vette since like the post says it's worth more. I wouldn't want to own either so the potential money is what would be the deciding factor for me.

Porsche's are for sissies.

 

Driven both. Have you? No faggotry in a Porsche. Vettes handle great straight line but corner like a truck.

      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.

      Four Wheeler Magazine has chosen the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado as its pick for Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year. The Colorado certainly deserves the win, but given the publication’s rules, it seems like it was snuck in. The group says its picks for Four Wheel truck of the year “…was determined by a weeklong, invitation-only competition open to all-new or significantly revised pickup trucks for the upcoming model year.” The Colorado ZR2 is was introduced in 2017 as a 2017 model year truck and is not scheduled to receive any major (or minor) changes in 2018. Hmm. We reached out to Four Wheeler Editor, Sean Holman, who was glad to help explain. Sean tells us that the 2017 Colorado missed the cutoff for the last POTY award due to its late introduction and therefore eligible. Automakers' crazy model and calendar year combos are the reason. Last year, the Raptor won.  
       
      Four Wheeler Editor Ken Brubaker commented on the ZR2’s win, saying, “The ZR2 takes the capable Colorado platform to a new level with a dizzying array of modifications including front and rear electric differential lockers, Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve shocks, a 2-inch-taller ride height, 3.5-inch-wider track width, additional skidplating, 31-inch tires, and many more off-road-centric goodies. The result is a truck that is willing and able to conquer terrain that would leave most other trucks behind.”
       
      The ZR2 was pitted against just two other trucks for the title this year, the Ram 1500 Harvest Edition, Ram 3500 Cummins turbodiesel. Read the full story at Four Wheeler.

       A new recall for the Chevrolet ZR2 has surfaced in owners' clubs and groups. The recall, GM 17345, is related to a failure of the front shock. Those who follow this new off-road truck may recall that GM opted to use a new-style shock developed by an F-1 racing supplier. The recall notices posted say the failure is, "...may have a leaking front shock absorber. noise as a result of contact between the upper control arm and service stop, as well as a potential fractured shock absorber piston rod." Owners are reporting that the inspection is related to manufacture date and that not all ZR2 trucks have the defect that leads to the failure. 

      If you are an owner of a ZR2 and have not received the recall notice by mail yet, you can check to see if your truck is affected at this GM recall lookup site.

      Chevrolet pulled the cloth off a new Corvette ZR1 at the sunny LA Auto show this week. This is the first ZR1 convertible since the original 1970 model-year ZR1. The new convertible ZR1 starts at $5K above the coupe with an opening price tag of about $124,000.

      “The new Corvette ZR1 convertible is a supercar in all respects,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Few others can challenge the ZR1 convertible’s power and speed while offering the exhilaration of top-down motoring.”

      The new lightweight convertible top adds less than 60 pounds and can be lowered and raised remotely and at speeds up to 30 MPH. As we recently reported, the Corvette ZR1 has a top speed of up to 212 MPH depending upon the aero package chosen and comes with a 755 hp V8 engine. GM plans to auction off the first ZR1 at a Barrett-Jackson event to benefit the veterans’ support group, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

      Chevy has shown two hot Colorado ZR2 concepts at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas. The first is the AEV Concept shown at the top of page. The AEV starts off with a new suspension setup including high-angle ball joints and increased stiffness high-angle tie rods. The truck also adds front and rear jounce shocks and a long-travel rear leaf-spring suspension. The differential gets a cover as part of the full underbody protection kit.
       
      The ZR2 AEV also gets custom wheels and tires, a winch kit, recovery hooks, and rocks a snorkel. In back, Chevy added a refrigerator cooler and there is an air pump and more substantial jack and tire kit. Check out the video for a walk-around on this off-roader.
