LOS ANGELES – Chevrolet today introduced the Colorado ZR2 concept – a vision of how Chevrolet could take the all-new midsize truck’s off-road capability to the next level. It also showcases the new 2.8L Duramax diesel engine that will arrive in the Colorado lineup later next year.
The Ram 2500 Outdoorsman concept truck shows just how capable, and functional, a 2500 can be for off-roaders and hunters when outfitted with Mopar and aftermarket parts. Ram says this truck was inspired by its relationship with outdoors outfitter Mossy Oak who helped created the truck’s unique color that’s aptly called “Swamp Thing Green,” which features a blend of camouflage details incorporated into the hood, roof and lower body of the truck.
