Chevrolet Adds Midnight and Dusk Editions to 2018 Colorado ZR2 Lineup
Midsize Off-Roader Gets Black-Accented Option Packs
Building on the incredibly capable Colorado ZR2 platform, Chevrolet will offer two new special editions: Midnight and Dusk.
Like the company’s other Midnight offerings, the Colorado ZR2 Midnight Edition will get an all-black exterior, including paint, Chevy bow-tie emblems, and accessory 17-inch wheels. Even the spare wheel gets dipped in gloss black. The ZR2 Dusk Edition keeps the black wheels and emblems, but it’s available in each of the ZR2’s colors.
Functionally, the Midnight and Dusk are identical to the regular ZR2, save the bed-mounted sport bar with standard LED off-road lighting. The bar’s sail panels also get embossed with the truck’s logo, giving the side profile a little more verve.
Chevy will showcase both special editions at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. In addition, they’ll be kitted out with genuine Chevrolet accessories. That example of the Midnight Edition is powered by the standard 3.6L V-6, optimized by a Chevrolet Performance Parts exhaust and air intake, plus all-weather floor liners and a bed-mounted spare tire carrier. The Dusk Edition show truck is painted Summit White and comes equipped with the 2.8L Duramax diesel I-4 and diesel-specific performance intake.
We’ll see them in person at SEMA, which starts on October 31 and goes through November 3. Hopefully Chevy’ll toss us the keys to one of them sometime soon, too!
