Description

Text originally from Car and Driver's's article

Unveiled at this year’s SEMA show, the Seafoam Green pickup is a collaborative effort between Chevrolet and the surfing brand Hurley. Designed to get surfers to remote breaks, the mid-size, four-wheel-drive Colorado Z71 Hurley concept sits higher than its production-spec counterpart and rides on a set of 17-inch wheels wrapped in a set of knobby Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. A snorkel fitted to the right-front fender helps the four-door pickup wade through waters that may happen to stand between a group of surfers and their destination, while rear-mounted driving lights illuminate the Colorado’s surroundings.

Adding to the concept’s purpose-built nature is a roof-mounted surfboard rack, a bed-mounted Thule storage tray, and a Bimini-style bed cover that provides shade from the sun after a long day of surfing while also covering up valuables left in the truck’s bed (at least from a distance). Inside, the Colorado Z71 Hurley concept is fitted with seats covered in a wetsuit-like, quick-dry material called ventiprene, which means passengers can keep their suits on upon calling it a day and driving back to civilization.

Overview

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mid-level Class S pickup introduced in the Coachella Update. It requires Class-S Blueprints 30 blueprints to unlock and has a starting rank of Level 30. Oil Changes take 3 hours to complete and costs Credits 250 for each change. The ZR2 features cosmetic modifications, such as partially covered headlights, a custom truck cap covering the flat bed, and a roof rack with various sport gear attached to it. Some decal options replace the front and rear bumpers with black trim versions.

Performance

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a rather unremarkable vehicle in its archetype, its slow acceleration, laggy handling response, mediocre drift radius, good knockdown potential, and excellent airspeed capabilities are stats shared with most of the other pickups. Due to pickups generally having awkward hitboxes due to their length and size, the ZR2 suffers from physics issues, notable examples include "clipping" on the ground that typically causes speed loss and unintentional airtime, the tendency to not complete flat spins properly and spin out, and bouncing awkwardly after landing barrel rolls. The ZR2's best aspect is the benefit it receives from drift-boosting in terms of acceleration and handling, and its ability to gain airspeed very well (albeit not to the same extent as the Lynx DCC 2016-J), and can maintain drifts very well.

At Level 50, the ZR2 is not exceptional in terms of performance, but isn't necessarily slow. On tracks that don't require too much cornering and top speed, but emphasize air-speed (Urban Playground, Dry Plains, No Man's Land), the Colorado can beat out a decent amount of vehicles from other archetypes, but will be seconds behind the likes of the Lynx DCC 2016-J and Chevrolet 3100, mainly due to their better acceleration giving them the ability to knock down opponents at the start easier. Furthermore, due to being slow off the line, being harder to drive than other archetypes, and having the tendency of running into run-ruining physics issues, the ZR2 is a highly unreliable vehicle to use for races, whether it be career events or multiplayer, where it is prone to wrecking via physics or by monster trucks.

* when using the Land Rover Defender as 100 % benchmark

The ZR2's long nitro top speed is decent for its class, while it is lower than the likes of the Chevrolet Colorado Z71, and some muscle cars, it is higher than the Chevrolet 3100, and most buggies. Extra Tank Extra Tank can provide some use for pickups, as there is a noticeable top speed increase that can take off some time out of runs if used correctly, assuming the driver can maintain their nitro and can tolerate the worse handling. The ZR2's average characteristics for a pickup harms its viability for multiplayer, while it is possible to beat competitive multiplayer cars given the right track, the driver must be highly skilled to be able to manage the slow steering response, utilize airspeed as much as possible, and accept the inevitability of unreliable physics. The most detrimental competitors to the ZR2 would be the Lynx DCC 2016-J, as well as any monster truck with decent acceleration, the former being a much easier and reliable version of the ZR2, and the latter being able to knockdown the ZR2 at the start of races. In terms of time-limited events usage, the ZR2 is useable in only pickup solo challenges, since it does not have any exclusive championships or test-drives available to it.

The ZR2's middle-of-the-road performance ultimately makes it an unrecommended vehicle to upgrade to Level 50, since there are better alternatives present in the archetype. Furthermore, due to pickups being generally overshadowed by top-tier buggies such as the DCC 2016-J and the Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS, the ZR2's significance is hindered further. It is also rather difficult to upgrade the car in the first place, as its blueprints are rare and hard to come by, and also requires a decent amount of valuable Class-S Tools that can be spent on better Class S cars.
