Motocross legend Ricky Carmichael has teamed up with Chevrolet to make a one of a kind Colorado pickup truck for this year’s SEMA show. This truck was designed to answer Carmichael’s go-anywhere needs while looking awesome all the time.
The Chevy Colorado Performance Concept, as it’s called, features the crew cab’s 6’ 2” cargo bed with CornerStep rear bumper, so Ricky will have no problem loading up his bikes. It also features the patent-pending GearOn system designed to hold larger items such as bikes, boards and kayaks above the bed, leaving room for smaller gear such as tents and sleeping bags in the bed.
As for the visual features, Chevy Colorado by Ricky Carmichael boasts a matte gray exterior color accented with high-gloss silver and yellow accents, and 17-inch Z71 aluminum wheels with Goodyear Duratec off-road tires. The truck is also fitted with Chevy MyLink with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and rearview camera system.
Being a competitive athlete Ricky Carmichael went for the most powerful engine which is the 3.6L V-6 rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. In 2WD version this engine will do 26 mpg.
