Chevrolet Introduces Midnight and Dusk Editions for Colorado ZR2
In what has become a long-standing tradition, Chevrolet has released a new ‘Midnight’ edition of it’s mini-Raptor Colorado ZR2, which is also going to be joined by another special edition, the related ‘Dusk’.
The Midnight-style trim is becoming more and more popular among automakers, and consists of black wheels and black badges, lending a menacing air to the vehicle. The ZR2 is also graced with a black sport bar–think Marty McFly’s pick-up–with a light bar on it, and is available in any body color you want, as long as it is black.
For customers who want the Midnight edition goodies, but want a different exterior color can choose the Dusk edition ZR2, which features the same additions, with any other color offered on the normal ZR2.
The trucks will be at the SEMA Show, from Oct. 31-Nov 3, in Las Vegas, where they will be part of Chevrolet’s display of concept and production vehicles.
