Auto News for Oct. 4 – Wild New Colorado


 The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2, the most extreme off-road-capable fuel-cell-powered electric vehicle ever from General Motors, was revealed at the fall meeting of the Association of the United States Army. Standing more than 6½ feet tall and more than seven feet wide, it was built on a stretched midsize pickup chassis. Reinforced inside and out, the ZH2 rides on 37-inch tires and a specially modified suspension that helps the vehicle climb over and descend all manner of terrain. The Army will test the Colorado ZH2 in extreme field conditions next year to determine the viability of hydrogen-powered vehicles on military missions.

 Autodata reports September vehicle sales fell 0.5 percent with total industry sales at 1.44 million as sales declined for full size pickups from Chevrolet and Ford. Now the debate will center on yearly sales and whether they can match the record set in 2015.

 Honda announced that a 6-speed stick shift will be available in the Civic sedan and coupe in EX-T trim level models. Civic sales are up 15.4 percent through August.
