Our test vehicle is available only with a 6.2-litre petrol V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission for a list price of $133,000 plus on-road costs.
Our example also features optional 'Glacier Blue Metallic' paint ($1250) and some GMSV accessories including an electric retractable (roller-type) tonneau cover and combination rock-sliders/removable side-steps.
For pricing well into six figures you’d expect plenty of desirable features and the ZR2 comes well equipped, starting with 18-inch high-gloss black alloy wheels with 275/70 R18 Goodyear Wrangler tyres (which stand more than 800mm tall) and a full-size spare.
There’s also LED headlights and C-shaped DRLs, ZR2-badged raised bonnet, ‘off-road cut’ front bumper with skid plate and recovery hooks, plus a ZR2 high-performance high-lift suspension package.
There’s also a spray-on tub-liner, power-opening tailgate, deep-tinted rear privacy glass, reversing camera, 360-degree HD camera and another eight cameras offering more than a dozen different views.
The standard towing kit with electronic trailer brake controller includes useful features like an automated trailer-light test (handy for a solo operator), an alert to avoid exceeding the GCM rating, rear-view camera with hitch guidance, in-vehicle trailer app with trailer profiles and trailer theft alert.
The spoils continue inside with keyless entry/start and sumptuous seating trimmed in two-tone leather, which might be a bit fancy for a work crew.
All seats are heated plus there’s ventilation and 10-way power adjustment for the fronts. The two-way adjustable leather-wrapped wheel is also heated, plus there’s dual-zone climate, wireless phone-charging, front/rear USB ports and a power sliding-rear window.
The driver is treated to a configurable 12.3-inch colour instrument-cluster display with many pages of useful info to scroll through, alongside a 13.4-inch central colour touchscreen, which controls the six-speaker multimedia system offering wireless compatibility with Apple and Android devices.
