The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is adding Dusk and Midnight Editions to its lineup and they will be on display at the 2017 SEMA Show.

This year, Chevrolet is celebrating 100 years of building trucks, so it’s fitting there’s something special for the Colorado ZR2. The Colorado ZR2 Midnight Edition sports an all-black exterior finish, black Chevy bowtie emblems, and 17-inch five-spoke black wheels, including the spare. There’s also a black sport bar with off-road LED lighting and ZR2 logos on the sport-bar sail panels.

Those that don’t prefer an all-black exterior finish can add the Dusk Edition package to their Colorado ZR2, which offers the same content but is available on all other ZR2 exterior finishes. The Dusk Edition does add black accents throughout.

In Las Vegas this year at the 2017 SEMA Show, the ZR2 Midnight Edition will be shown with the 3.6-liter V6 and will feature other Chevrolet Accessories and Chevrolet Performance parts including a bed-mounted spare tire carrier, Performance air intake, Performance exhaust, and all-weather floor liners with ZR2 logos. The Dusk Edition show vehicle is finished in Summit White and is powered by the available 2.8-liter Duramax turbocharged diesel engine. Other accessories include a diesel-exclusive Performance cold air intake.

“The Colorado ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Edition models offer customers even more personalization choices from the only company with three distinct trucks: midsize, full-size and full-size heavy-duty,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, Truck Strategy, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chevrolet offers more choices because the truck market is too diverse for a ‘one size fits most’ strategy.”

    Horrible compared to the 'special edition' vehicles of the past. They still all look alike. Cost over 40K in most cases though. That is because vehicles are not real vehicles any longer; they are computers on wheels, run by computers, have computers in them, tv screens, you name it. All the more to break down.

    Hate the avalanche look of the row bar in the bed (fog lights)
