  • AEV Releases Colorado Parts at Overland Expo

    The popularity of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 AEV concept truck has encouraged American Expedition Vehicles to officially move forward launching a series of production aftermarket products with Chevrolet, which will premier for the first time at Overland Expo West in Flagstaff on Friday, May 18th.

    The launch of the Snorkel Kit and Crestone DualSport Wheel as accessories for the Chevrolet Colorado marks the first time in AEV’s twenty-one-year history that it will be working with Chevrolet. Both parts can be applied to any variant of the current-generation Colorado, including the ZR2, and the Snorkel Kit is compatible with both the 2.8L Duramax turbo diesel and 3.6L V6 gas engines.

    “While designing and testing prototype parts for the SEMA concept vehicle, we were blown away by the capabilities of the stock Colorado and ZR2,” comments AEV Founder/President Dave Harriton. “There really is a lot of truck to work with here and our team is thrilled at the opportunity to collaborate with Chevrolet. AEV’s release of these new Colorado products here at Overland Expo really is the next evolution of that partnership.”

    Inspired by heavy duty industrial and military applications around the world, the AEV Colorado Snorkel Kit was designed to improve engine performance by drawing in the cleanest, coolest air charge possible. AEV tests its snorkel kits extensively, both in laboratory and in tough real-world conditions. The OE quality UV-stable cross-linked polyethylene offers superior durability and performance, both in the laboratory thermal chamber as well as overlanding expeditions. Lightweight yet durable, the AEV Colorado Snorkel installs directly into the factory airbox and offers an available self-cleaning Pre-Filter to further maximize particulate-trapping of up to 98 percent of debris. The AEV Colorado Snorkel is made in the USA and will be available through AEV’s global network of dealers. LEARN MORE: AEV Colorado Snorkel Kit >

    The DOT-compliant AEV Crestone DualSport Beadlock wheel is made from heat-treated A356 T6 cast aluminum for maximum strength at minimal weight. Further, AEV thoroughly tested the Colorado DualSport Wheel to stringent SAE J2530 standards. Designed as a DualSport wheel, the Crestone allows users to customize their wheel in three configurations; with either a fully-functional Beadlock Ring for running very low tire pressure off-road, a Protection Ring designed for street use as well as wheel protection off-road, or no ring for a simple, minimalist look. Both the Beadlock and Protection Rings are interchangeable, giving you the flexibility to run a Protection Ring on the street or upgrade to a functional Beadlock Ring for off-road use. Other features include Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) compatibility and recessed valve stems for added protection.

    AEV RELEASES COLORADO PARTS AT OVERLAND EXPO 2

    “We know that modifying your truck is a big part of overlanding, and with more than 320,000 Colorado pickups on the road, we’ve been working hard to bring compelling, off-road-worthy parts to market,” said Mark Dickens, Executive Director – Global Accessories, Performance Variants, Parts & Motorsports Engineering, General Motors. “AEV is one of the recognized leaders in the overlanding space, and one of the best-possible collaborators to help take Colorado to the next level. Their parts are designed and manufactured to an incredibly high standard for off-roading, and the fact that they’ve chosen Colorado as a platform for accessorizing validates the inherent capability of both Colorado and ZR2.”

    Two AEV equipped Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 trucks featuring the Snorkel Kit and Crestone DualSport will be on display at Overland Expo West from May 18th – 20th at the AEV exhibit booth. The AEV Snorkel Kit is available now, and the Crestone DualSport Wheel will be available in July.

    I like the fact you did the Colorado! Really cool and it looks awesome. I have to raise one question though. Having a 3500 AEV RAM CTD in the US and soon a 1500 AEV RAM HEMI in Germany, what are the chances we will see a convertible wheel like the JK/Colorado wheel? I´d like to have the bead lock capability with an AEV wheel, as both RAMs have ALL AEV parts on them. I know I am not the only one that would like to have a bead lock capable wheel for the RAM (1500 and HD) from you guys. Anything in the works?

        I was wondering the same thing, when will we see AEV suspension systems for the Colorado? I will be purchasing a Colorado in a little over a year and wanted to upgrade the suspension. I would love to do an AEV suspension. Any plans to release one for the Colorado?

          Not at this time. The shocks that come on the ZR2 are amazing and also very expensive. We wouldn't want to compromise those in any way as they are great as they are. That is not to say a definitely no but for now, it's not in the plans.

            Even the SEMA concept appeared to use the stock suspension. It looked like there was some trimming done to get a 35" tire to fit which might be a better option to get the bigger tires without compromising the stock suspension.

              The SEMA concept had the ZR2 racing suspension. I can't recall exact numbers but I believe it was about 1.25" taller.
