Someone has created an add-on for GTA V that allows you to bring the 2017 Colorado ZR2 to the game, all using just a bunch of files that you need to place in the installation folder.

While GTA V itself isn’t the kind of game whose purpose is to impress with the car’s level of details, this Colorado ZR2 seems to be rather accurately reproduced, with the designer explaining the some of that textures have been manually created.

As for what the mod brings, the Colorado ZR2 comes to GTA V with working suspensions, breakable windows, and a 3D engine model. It’s a six-passenger vehicle that contains just one bug that only affects the bed, which suffers from minor collision glitches.

As for the real Colorado ZR2, it has already received a series of improvements for model year 2020, including a Tire Fill Alert system and a key fob-operated tailgate lock control.

The 2019 ZR2 is offered with the 3.6-liter V6 engine as standard but can be also ordered with a 2.8-liter turbo diesel powerplant.

The ZR2 package comes with several changes versus the standard Colorado, including the suspension lifted by 2 inches (5.08 cm) and the front and rear track widened by 3.5 inches (8.89 cm). The pickup also features more aggressive grille and hood details and comes with a trailering package and integrated brake controller as standard. It rides on 17 x 8-inch aluminum wheels with 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires.

It goes without saying that not all these details have been reproduced for the GTA V version, but other than that, the add-on here is a design that is really worth a try, especially if you’re a Colorado fan. Needless to say, you are highly recommended to create a backup of your game files before installing this mod.
