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.

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

      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.

      Just in time for the annual SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas, Chevy has dropped two great-looking special edition Colorados. The ZR2 is already styled differently than other Colorado trims with a more aggressive hood and grille as well as modified front and rear bumpers for added off-road clearance. These two new special editions take the looks up a notch.

      The 2018 Colorado ZR2 Midnight Edition is painted all-black,  and also has black Chevy bowtie emblems and custom 17-inch five-spoke black wheels - including the spare. There is also a black sport bar with off-road LED lighting and sport-bar sail panels, which bring back the Avalanche look in a way.

      The ZR2 Dusk Edition offers the same features as the ZR2 Midnight, but isn’t black. It can be purchased in any other ZR2 exterior finish, but the black accents remain. The ZR2 Dusk Edition show in our images is Summit White with the available 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel and the diesel-exclusive Performance Cold Air Intake.

      “The Colorado ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Edition models offer customers even more personalization choices from the only company with three distinct trucks: midsize, full-size and full-size heavy-duty,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, Truck Strategy, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chevrolet offers more choices because the truck market is too diverse for a ‘one size fits most’ strategy.” Chevy has not said when the new trucks will be available, but we suspect late Fall.

      Two months with my new smaller truck and loving it! My Sierra was an amazing truck but I didn’t need a 6.2L. I own a small ranch but I never need to pull anything over 5 thousand pounds. Mostly I am crossing the fields carrying equipment, crossing a creek or checking fence lines. This smaller package makes sense for me. More maneuverable and better fuel economy. The added lift gets me over creeks and streams. Clears stumps and other debris.

      GM seems to be downplaying its towing capabilities in non-full-size truck offerings. The first, and most surprising revelation was that Chevy is only rating the new Colorado ZR2 at 5,000 pounds for towing, regardless of its engine. That means the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro's gasoline engine's 6,400 lb towing rating tops the diesel ZR2. Toyota has for years been conservative in its tow ratings and adopted the current standards prior to GM. We doubt this is specmanship on Toyota's part.

      The newest towing surprise was the all-new 2018 Equinox diesel compact crossover. The new diesel engine costs almost $4,000 more than the base engine in the Equinox. Yet, its towing is limited to 1,500 pounds, the same rating almost all compact crossovers come with (the CR-V for example). Where is the diesel towing advantage we often see in larger pickups and sport utes?

      Perhaps Chevy assumes with these two diesel vehicles owners don't care much about towing. That would not be our impression based on posts to the ZR2 clubs* we participate in. What say you GM-Trucks.com faithful? No big deal, or sort of surprising?

      Do you like in-depth comparisons of trucks driven off-road? Who doesn't?! We recently spotted and enjoyed this video from our friends at Off-Road.com. What we liked about this video is that the reviewer does not pretend that the Tacoma TRD Pro doesn't exist like Chevy does in its ridiculous "Segment of One" ZR2 marketing campaign. The TRD Pro is a solid off-roader with some industry-leading specs. No production truck has a steeper approach angle. The Tacoma has more ground clearance than the ZR2, and in this matchup, it is about $4K less expensive than the Chevy.
       
      What did Off-Road.com think, and which truck was the winner? Watch and see.
