Chevrolet expands a Colorado lineup with a off-road Z71 Trail Runner and street-focused RST

Two special-edition models will shortly join a 2019 Chevrolet Colorado midsize lorry lineup: a Colorado RST and a Colorado Z71 Trail Runner.

Chevrolet will offer a 2019 Colorado RST, that stands for “Rally Sport Truck,” with a handful of extraneous upgrades though no performance-oriented changes. The Colorado RST builds on a LT trim, with disdainful extraneous facilities such as a “Chevrolet” lettered front grille design, black physique side moldings, and several black badging on a tailgate, such as a RST, Colorado, and Chevrolet bowtie logos. The RST also becomes a initial Colorado to come with 20-inch wheels, that will have a low-gloss black finish.

While Chevrolet states that a Colorado RST is “street-focused,” a 2019 Colorado Z71 Trail Runner is really geared toward off-road use. The Z71 Trail Runner adds underbody insurance from a range-topping ZR2 trim, such as rocker insurance and aluminum movement plates, while also including a set of brawny Goodyear Duratrac tires and a lettered front grille. Of course, a Z71 Trail Runner includes all of a customary Z71 features, such as a automatically locking back differential, 4.10 spindle ratio, hill-descent control, front off-road liberation draw hooks, and an off-road-oriented suspension.

Both models will be accessible in possibly two-wheel expostulate (2WD) or four-wheel expostulate (4WD). The customary energy plant for both special-edition models is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, that pairs to a six-speed involuntary delivery for 2WD models and an eight-speed involuntary for 4WD models.

However, a Chevrolet orator remarkable that a immeasurable infancy of these special-edition models will implement a discretionary 3.6-liter V6 creation 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, while a 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine with 186 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque is also accessible as an choice for both. Regardless of driven wheels, a V6 pairs with an eight-speed involuntary delivery and a diesel engine pairs with a six-speed automatic. The orator also claims that a Duramax engine is some-more expected to be found in a Z71 Trail Runner than a RST, observant that it is a renouned engine for off-roading purposes.

Though pricing and a specific recover date aren’t finalized yet, we can design to see both a Colorado RST and a Colorado Z71 Trail Runner during Chevrolet dealerships in early 2019.
