The truck excels in the dirt but thanks to the new Multimatic shocks, it has zero compromises on the pavement.

The dampers may look a little funky, but you can take paved corners quickly with minimal body roll. Five minutes later you can be flying through the air and feeling like you're landing on a cloud.

You should pass on the accessory spare tire mount. There are better space-saving ways to carry a spare in the bed.

The ZR2 is available with a 3.6-liter gas-powered engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Or you can get your oil-burner on with a 2.8-liter diesel engine, knocking out 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

The 3.6-liter powerplant gets a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The diesel comes standard with the six-speed automatic from 2016.

The interior of the ZR2 matches the standard Colorado. It's not a bad thing, especially when you consider the MyLink system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
