Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, Silverado ZR2 Take Off-Road Championships

December 17th, 2021 by

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a legend of the backwoods. It will soon be joined by the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2. Together, there is nothing that can stop their off-road prowess anywhere.

This was proven at a recent off-road competition. Both the Colorado ZR2 and Silverado 1500 ZR2 clinched the Best In The Desert Class at the Cal City Desert Challenge. They also won in their respective classes during this competition.

This was not the first time both Chevrolets won this competition. This was actually the second consecutive win for the Silverado 1500 ZR2 and the fourth straight championship for the Colorado ZR2.

Chad Hall Racing has been competing with a pre-production version of the Silverado ZR2 since 2019, helping Chevrolet test and validate the off-road technologies that went into the upcoming 2022 production model.

Similarly, the team helped test the Chevy Colorado ZR2 off-road technologies in competition — and is still going strong with them. The Chad Hall Racing Colorado ZR2 has been competing since 2017 in the Best In The Desert series and is the only truck in its class to have finished every race entered. It has accumulated more than 22,500 miles of racing experience.

The Colorado ZR2 race vehicle also helped test and validate 15 factory race components that are available to Colorado owners through Chevrolet dealers. They include Multimatic long-travel DSSV dampers and long-travel leaf springs, jounce shocks, a steel driveshaft, a tie rod sleeve system, ball-spline half-shafts and other parts designed to optimize off-road driving performance and durability.

Similar components have been developed for the Silverado, including long-travel suspension parts and a steel driveshaft, which were recently introduced at the 2021 SEMA Show.
More details on the Colorado and Silverado parts are available at www.chevrolet.com/performance-parts. Plus, you can order these parts through Dieffenbach GM Superstore’s parts department for your Colorado and Silverado 1500.

However, if you want the vehicles that have been inspired by the desert, you can place your order for a new Colorado ZR2 or the upcoming Silverado 1500 ZR2 through Dieffenbach GM Superstore today.
