We’ve all waited long enough for the right-size truck to come out. We didn’t want a giant truck that was impossible to manipulate in parking lots and other tight urban spots. We also didn’t want a dinky truck that was only good for moving, if you were moving out of a one-room apartment the size of a closet. Just like Goldilocks, we wanted a truck that was “just right.”
Well, it’s finally here: The 2014 Chevrolet Colorado. Top Speed puts it perfectly when they write that the Colorado (and it’s cousin the Canyon) are “easier to drive, while their powerful gasoline powertrains keep all the truck-style capabilities truck buyers demand.”
Enhancing what is already an extremely useful truck, Chevy has created an off-road concept, the Chevrolet Colorado Z2 Concept. The automaker starts by making this particular Colorado with a wider stance. Of course, it has huge tires ready to eat up sand and dirt. On the front and the rear axle, it’s got electronic locking differentials. They also bestowed it with a DuraMax turbodiesel. A mind-blowing package, indeed.
Though it’s only a concept for now, Top Speed thinks that “while few concept vehicles actually make it to production, this one might actually have a shot.”
