Chevy Colorado ZH2

Earlier today Chevy revealed an absolute beast of a vehicle at the Association of the United States Army’s annual fall meeting. It’s the ultimate off-road fuel-cell powered vehicle by GM, their most powerful to date in fact, and is slated to commence military field testing next year.

The Colorado ZH2 is built upon a stretched midsize pickup chassis giving it more than 6½ feet in height and a width of 7 feet. It rides atop 37-inch off-road tires and a modified suspension gives the vehicle amazing climbing power suitable for any terrain. The truck’s operation is nearly silent, and it uses an Exportable Power Take-Off unit that keeps everything powered up even in remote locations where electricity may be hard to find. Testing of the vehicle over the next year or so will evaluate the truck’s potential for near-silent operation, reduced thermal and acoustic signatures, high wheel torque, and low fuel consumption. Clearly, the goal here is have a stealthy vehicle that’s reliable in hot, dry and dangerous regions of our planet; no security clearance needed to connect the dots here.
