Well a buddy of mine is looking at a colorado or canyon. Well we see all these trucks on the lot with Z71 stickers. So instantly we figure it is 4wd. We talk to the sales man and go inside to look at prices on paper. We get a spec sheet on the truck. Z71 offroad suspension, 265-75-16" TIRES and the sort. Come to find out this thing is only 2WD!!!! The 4wd trucks say Z71 4x4, so no longer can you consider a Z71 to be 4wd. Blows my mind. They had like 3 different tire sizes on the 2wd trucks stock. Very weird IMO... Just thought I would share what I learned today. They also have a ZRS street option. And the sticker says ZRS STREET...lol

Yeah, i saw someone say sumthin about that right after they first came out...after 32 years, GM changes from a 4x4 only Z71 to a prerunner style 2wd Z and then the 4x4 Z...

its a cool idea...competes with the prerunner tacos...but once again, GM puts the wrong badge on it...first the new SS silverados...now the Z71 on the midsize truck...and on top of that, on some with just 2wd...

the colorado has like 3 suspension packages avaiable, heavy duty z85 the z71 offroad, and the zq8 sport.

the z71 package lifts the 2wd up

the z71 package has anti sway bar, gas charged shocks, urethane bumpers, tow hooks, locking rear diff, different wheels, flares, and a grlill insert, also the z71 poackage comes with a leather steering wheel (FOR BETTER OFFROAD HANDLING), and a frame mounted skid plate.

the zq8 drops the vehicle 2 inches from stock and offerces improved handling
