Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon (cont.)
Chevy introduced the Colorado ZR2 for 2017, a factory-developed off-road trim that offers much more than the sticker-and-shock packages of years past. This rig is seriously good off the highway and even earned 2018 Four Wheeler of the Year honors from our sister magazine, Four Wheeler. In Truck Trend’s Pickup Truck of the Year competition, the ZR2 performed incredibly well, giving drivers the confidence to have fun whether they’re ripping down dirt trails, rockclimbing, or just cruising down the highway. While the ZR2 has a few compromises (reduced towing capacity, payload, and 19/22 mpg), it is a great option for people who want to play off-road, and we believe it is at its best with the torquey diesel engine. Updates include blacked-out Chevrolet Bow Tie emblems and a new 18-inch wheel design.
Pricing for the ’19 Chevrolet Colorado starts at $37,475 with rear-wheel drive, and $40,940 for fourwheel-drive models. GMC’s ’19 Canyon’s MSRP starts at $38,600.
Still in a segment of their own, GM’s Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are best with the diesel mill, which provides plenty of power to keep the midsize truck moving along, while sipping fuel to the tune of 30 mpg on the highway.
