The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will carry a starting MSRP of $40,995

Today the 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 made its big Canadian debut at the Calgary International Auto and Truck Show. The high-performance, off-road midsize pickup truck will go on sale in the country this spring with a starting price of $44,215, plus a $1,700 destination freight charge.

“ZR2 is truly a segment of one and does everything well. We’re thrilled to be able to offer it for more than $6,000 less than the next closest comparable truck.” said Doug Kenzie, brand manager of Chevrolet Trucks in Canada. “When purchasing a ZR2 at the starting price, our customers are getting all of the incredible off-road technologies that allow them to traverse everything from heavy two-track rails to high-speed desert running and full-on rock crawling.”

Available options on the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will include a class-exclusive, 181 horsepower, 369 lb-ft of torque, 2.8-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission; the choice of crew- or extended cab configurations (including short and long beds, respectively); 7-speaker Bose premium audio system; dealer-installed, bed-mounted spare tire carrier; and a full-length black vinyl floor with standard leather seats and carpet at no additional cost.
