Ford Special Edition Trucks 2017 – Chevrolet has phenomenal success by returning to the medium truck market. Now hoping to develop the market even more with the launch of two special 2019 Colorados editions. Chevrolet introduces the Chevrolet Colorado RST 2019, which focuses on the streets. It also adds the Colorado Z71 2019 Trail Trail, which is focused on off-road.
“Colorado’s success helped revive the medium truck segment, which increased 27 percent from 2015 to 2017,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing for Chevrolet Trucks. “This changes what customers expect from medium trucks, brings new customers to Chevrolet and has inspired competitors to follow in the footsteps of Chevy.”
Ford Special Edition Trucks 2017
Chevrolet introduced the middle Colorado four years ago. Since then, more than 428,792 Colorados have been sold. Chevrolet has designed Colorado to have something for every prospective truck owner – including three different powertrains, three configurations and various trims. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the EPA-estimated rating of the 27 mpg highway. It also offers 7000 pounds of crane capability.
Details of Colorado RST 2019
Colorado RST is building a RST model that focuses on the roads offered at the new Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado. For Colorado, RST is based on the LT trim and adds a monochromatic exterior offset with black beltline and side body prints. This also adds a black bowtie tailgate, Colorado and RST badge. RST is also the first Colorado to offer 20-inch wheels, finished in shiny black.
The Z71 Trail Runner Details
The Z71 Trail Runner starts with the Colorado Z71 off-road package and adds Colorado ZR2 bottom protection. Changes include front and mid-skid aluminum plates, functional rocker protection and Goodyear Duratrac tires.
With the Z71 Trail Runner, the Colorado product line now offers four different off-road capability levels:
Colorado Z71: Z71 Off-Road Suspension, automatic locking rear differential and 17-inch unique painted wheels and all-terrain tires.
New Colorado Z71 Trail Runner: Adds additional off-road protection to the Z71 trim with front plate and mid-Colorado skid ZR2, protection rockers and 17-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires.
Colorado ZR2: Compared to standard Colorado, the ZR2 has a 3.5-inch track installed in the factory and the suspension is lifted 2 inches. Exclusive class features include differences in front and rear electronic locking and DSSV Multimatic Dampers. The ZR2 also features front and mid-skid plates, modified rocker and front and rear bumpers for better off-road cleaning.
Colorado ZR2 Bison: The Bison ZR2 adds even more extreme off-road capability with five hot-stamped Boron steel skid plates and steel front and rear bumpers stamped with the terms of the front winch and rear recovery point. Bison is due at many dealers in early 2019.
The two new special editions feature the flow-through “CHEVROLET” grille which was first introduced in the Colorado ZR2 Bison.
