Chevy ZR2 Utility Truck

 

’18 Roush Mustang Stage 2

This appears to be an additional prototype for the Chevrolet Colorado utility truck. Chevrolet built a concept version in 2017, showing it to various truck groups as a potential alternative to fullsize models. But now a modified version of that truck has been spotted testing—suggesting that it could be added to a ZR2-style truck. The addition of a snorkel, white LED reverse lights, a revised rear bumper, a ZR2-badged tailgate and a different M plate can be seen on this truck.

The test model features the raised ZR2 ride height and more aggressive wheels and tires. Yet it continues with the utility truck’s rear design that includes a modified bumper and side boxes.

 

This is the ’18 Roush Mustang, caught while testing in the Rockies. The Roush Mustang will benefit from upgrades that the rest of the ’18 Mustangs get, such as updates to the front clip and new LED lights, front and rear, and a new hood. Magnetic ride control with adaptive dampers is also available now.

The Mustang’s 5.0L V8 received a boost up to 460 hp, so it’s fair to assume that this Stage 2 Roush version will jump from ’17’s 435 and possibly approach 500.

Expect the ’18 Stage 2 Roush Mustang to continue to demand a premium of about $10,000 when it becomes available.

Automotive spies in Germany have sent images of what’s likely to become the next version of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Judging by the looks of the test car snapped at the German Nürburgring, the new Nismo is going to receive upgraded brakes and additional air outlets above the front wheels, which would improve aerodynamics. Other features are not known yet, but expect a lightly revised interior and a small power boost.
