Don't get me wrong, given the chance I'll snatch one up lol, just might get rid of that push bar.

Push bar is part of the Desert Boss package. You can get the ZR2 without it.
Damn. So it's either ugly or not at all. I know after market won't be as strong, they'll probably be brush guards rather than push bars. Brush guards you can kick them and they'll move up or down so I never bothered with them. Guess I'll experiment with my 17 ZR2 and fabricate something myself.

Nothing to see under there anyway. Just a 4 banger lol
Hood appears lighter then the current hood... Reminds me of the weight of the hood on my Eagle Talon

As such, the revised cadence is listed from bottom to top as listed from bottom to top as WT (Work Truck), Trail Boss, LT, Z71, and ZR2

This us copied and pasted from the article about the LT trim. I thought the LT trim was just above the WT trim? Guess not.

The new Chevy Colorado LT gets the “base” 2.7L Turbo tune as standard, which will actually get its own RPO code, rated at 237 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque (max trailering rating of 3,500 pounds), while the mid-range 2.7L Turbo Plus tune is optional, offering up 310 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque (max trailering rating of 7,700 pounds)

So according to the Chevy Press Sheet the 3rd engine tune/strongest was rated at 310hp and 430 pound-feet of torque with a max trailering rating of 7700ibs, so why would the 2nd engine option have 40 pound-feet of torque LESS and have the SAME towing rating? If this is correct then why pay more for a stronger? higher spec engine option if it has the same HP, more torque, but can tow the same weight? I guess the heavier truck options need the stronger engine to tow 6000ibs because they weigh so much but for me that is going to tow a 5,000 pound loaded Toy Hauler and do very little light off roading the Pro engine on the light LT might be my cheapest best bet.

copied and pasted from the press sheet

2.7L Turbo2372593,500 lbs.Standard: WT & LT
2.7L Turbo Plus3103907,700 lbs.Standard: Z71 & Trail Boss
Available: WT & LT
2.7L Turbo High-Output3104307,700 lbs.Standard: ZR2 (Max trailering up to 6000lbs)


so according to the chevy press sheet the High-Output option has 40 more-pound feet of torque more than the Pro option, it can tow 7,700ibs, the same as the Pro cheaper engine option, BUT because it is ONLY available, (according to their chart) on the heavier ZR2 option for Chevy then it can only tow 6000ibs? I know the High output option comes on ALL the GMC Cayon options, but the base Canyon is the Elevation, and it starts at $41,399 so even though I am a GMC guy I would probably get the Chevy Colorado LT with the Plus engine option because that way I get the most towing, and a ton of options on the LT at the lowest price that should be lower than the GMC Canyon Elevation's $41,399.
