AEV’S Chev Colorado col­lab­o­ra­tion

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - NEWS -

Amer­i­can Ex­pe­di­tion Ve­hi­cles is best known for its limited edi­tion Jeep builds. At last year’s SEMA show in Las Ve­gas, how­ever, it turned up with this of­fi­cial Chevro­let project, a Colorado ZR2 kit­ted out for what we would call taga­longs but they re­fer to as ‘over­land­ing.’ The Colorado has had a sus­pen­sion up­grade front and rear and AEV has added new front and rear bumpers, new un­der­body skid plates, a bed rack, new fen­der flares and a snorkel for the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel en­gine. Wheels are bead­lock-equipped AEV al­loys to which are mounted 35-inch Bf­goodrich KM2 Mud-ter­rain tyres. Both the front and rear get bright LED light bars while in the tray is an ARB fridge, alu­minium stor­age cases and Nato-style fuel cans. For re­cov­ery, the truck comes with a Warn winch, re­cov­ery shack­les, a Hi-lift jack and MAXTRAX slid­ers. While in­set into the tray are con­nec­tors for air and wa­ter. The mod­ded Colorado drew many ap­prov­ing glances at SEMA and could well be just the in­spi­ra­tion you need for your ute, Colorado or other.
