A 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 braves the snow in upstate New York

The blizzard that hit New York wasn’t quite devastating enough to justify all of the ridiculous media coverage it garnered, but the storm did leave a lot of snow on the ground. So Bill Saporito of TIME magazine took advantage of the opportunity and showed off the 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 4×4’s off-roading capabilities in a new video.

Check it out:

With the four-wheel-drive system set to “4 low,” Saporito had no difficulty climbing up a snow-covered hill. Then he made it back down the slippery slope with ease, too.

Saporito said his 4WD Z71 Crew Short Box had a price tag of $36,710, which he considered a value deal compared to more expensive full-size pickup trucks. He also praised the truck’s intuitive touchscreen, positioning the Colorado as a high-tech pickup that fits an urban environment perfectly.

“One of the themes of the Colorado could be that it gives you less, but in a good way,” Saporito writes. “It’s about six inches narrower than its full-size siblings. That might not mean much in rural areas, but in the city it’s the difference between nimble and not. Squeezing past double-parked cars in Manhattan’s crowded streets was relatively easy.”
