For most people, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor should also offer more than strong enough performance for off-roading.

Chevrolet Colorado ZH2, Extraordinary Soldier on War Field

The new Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 is a concept developed by General Motors (GM) and the US Army Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering (TARDEC) center, made up of radically new type of sheet metal, and the latest hydrogen fuel cell.

ZH2 will be used to study the possibilities offered by advanced engine technology in combat vehicles.

It starts with a fuel cell and an electric motor, since many of the advantages of electric vehicles can be applied in military terms. First, they are extremely quiet – literally and thermodynamic as hydrogen fuel cells do not produce a thermal signature. In the car will be built 25KW battery which can be charged and easily removed from it, and GM and TARDEC developed a system for collecting only emissions from the vehicle, ie water, which through various generators would be used humanitarian, and military tactical operations.

Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 will be wide and high over 2 meters and will be more impressive than “ordinary” Colorado model, while MENDED cabin will not be overly dramatic, except new Recaro racing seats and Simpson harnesses for networks.

ZH2 will have a huge 37-inch wheels and a specially modified suspension for that specifics are not yet know, but in any case will be an advanced technology that should be applicable in military terms, but that would be used in standard “civilian” Colorado models.

GM will test the car until early next year, and then hand it over to the military for testing in “extreme conditions on the ground.”
