A ZR2 off-road version may join the Z71 Colorado
The recently introduced 2015 Chevrolet Colorado may get an all-terrain variant, like the ZR2 versions of the Chevy S-10 and GMC Sonoma pickups sold more than a decade ago. ”The dealers already have been asking for an off-road model,” said Jeff Luke, GM’s chief pickup truck engineer. “We’re considering it.”

So does this summer sound good, should I buy now, or wait for the future? (Read More…)
