Looking to take on those rough hills and rocky climbs with little fear of puttering out halfway? Want to do all that in a capable pickup?

Look no further than the Colorado Z71, which packs all the off-road ready capabilities and some seriously tough engine options for easy accessibility to those spots you might have once written off as inaccessible in a standard pickup. But with one test-drive you’ll see that this is no ordinary truck, and that the Colorado Z71 is literally built to conquer the landscape like no pickup before it.

Incredible Off-Road Performance

Probably the most useful feature of the Colorado Z71 is its eponymous Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package, a mighty combination of premium suspension with features like specially-calibrated twin-tube shocks and a transfer case shield to keep everything protected as you bounce along those rocks, ridges, and pits on that great off-road adventure. Standard features like an automatic locking differential and Hill Descent Control help to keep your truck on even footing no matter what kind of terrain you’re taking on, while powerful features like a Tow/Haul mode for optimal torque, traction control, a rear axle with a 3.42 ratio, and front recovery hooks let you boldly go where no truck lover has gone before without fear of getting yourself stranded due to insufficient power. In other words, the Colorado Z71 is ready to handle the worst of what you can throw at it – and we’d be surprised to find out that anything can stop it with everything it brings to the table.

Unshakable Engine Options

Of course, the capabilities of a top-tier truck are nothing if the system itself isn’t packing enough power – and thanks to the impressive 2.6-liter V6 engine standard on the Colorado Z71, not having enough power isn’t likely to be one of your main concerns. This high-powered beauty can pump out up to 305 horsepower and up to 269 lb.-ft of torque for total trail-crushing climbs, while its direct fuel injection and variable valve timing help to optimize power and efficiency when met with seriously challenging terrain. Boasting a best-in-class 7,000 lb max towing capacity and up to 26 miles per gallon highway in fuel efficiency, this impressive engine is ready to push your Colorado Z71 as far as you are without ever giving up the fight.

Of course, those in search of unmatched towing power need look no further than the available 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine, proudly pushing out 181 horsepower and an incredible 369 lb.-ft of torque for total towing capabilities. A best-in-class towing capacity of up to 7,700 lbs and an astounding 31 miles per gallon fuel economy only help make this diesel option one of the most impressive for any truck, and adds serious flair to your already high-powered Colorado Z71.
