American Expedition Vehicles Unveils Chevrolet Colorado Accessory Line

Snorkel Kit and DualSport Wheels Debut for Colorado and Colorado ZR2 at Overland Expo West.
Flagstaff, AZ, May 17, 2018 - 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, Arizona, on Friday, May 18.
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 turbodiesel and 3.6L V-6 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 during 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.
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.
"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 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 in Flagstaff, Arizona, from May 18-May 20th at the AEV exhibit booth. The AEV Snorkel Kit is available now, and the Crestone DualSport Wheel will be available in July. For more information, please visit aev-conversions.com or call AEV at (248) 926-0256.
