2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2: How It Rides Like Camaro

By  | 

The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is going to be a superb off the road vehicle and it is also going to ride like a Camaro Z/28 and similar performance vehicles, thanks to it using the same design for the DSSV shock absorber.

The shock absorber makes use of the SDDV technology, Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve, along with the favorite of off-road racers, the position sensitive damping.

Multimatic have also added in another spool valve in the shock body along with a piston that is simpler at the top of the shock. The value of the third spool is offering off-road compression profile and there is a unique profile which helps to settle down the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 when it has reacted to an extreme event.

The new shocks of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 also come with other benefits and one is an enhanced ride and handling characteristics. The shocks are lower in weight and the structural stiffness has been increased.

So it does sound as though the technology used in the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is better than the Fox shocks used on the likes of the Ford F-150 Raptor and we cannot wait for its arrival to test them out.
