Chevrolet and Hurley, the surfing performance and innovation brand, announced the Colorado Z71 Hurley concept. The collaboration is designed to get surfers and their gear around with functionality and style. This ultimate wave wanderer, which also serves as a mobile beach command center is decked out with a custom surfboard rack, storage systems and even water-resistant seat covers made from advanced ventiprene, a breathable material similar to the neoprene used in surfing wetsuits.

Colorado is a lifestyle enabler and the Hurley concept demonstrates the personalization possibilities for one of the most thrilling sports. With Chevrolet Accessories parts, the sky and the surf is the limit when it comes to tailoring the Colorado to work or recreation interests. The Colorado Z71 Crew Cab has a concept lifted suspension, 17-inch Chevrolet accessories wheels and Goodyear DuraTrac all-terrain tires for even greater capability in the quest for finding the beach with the best waves. This concept is all about functionality offering solutions for the challenges surfers face at remote locations.

The solutions start with the custom carrier system that mounts a pair of Pyzel surfboards on the roof, while a custom Bimini-style bedcover provides shade on a sunny beach. There’s also a bed-mounted Thule rack that serves as a wetsuit drying rack and storage for drinking-water containers. A custom Seafoam Green exterior is accented with subtle, tone-on-tone Hurley graphics and skid plates featuring the Hurley logo. A number of Chevrolet accessories lend functional style, including: off-road lights, sport assist steps, and illuminated black bowtie kit.

Inside, the ventiprene seat material offers a breathable, quick-drying surface that’s perfect for jumping into the vehicle with wet board shorts. The khaki green and sand dune-colored material is also used on the armrests and door panels. The rest of the cabin is accented with khaki green and sand dune trim and green accent stitching. The Hurley logo is integrated in the headrests, sill plates and floor liners.

The Colorado is equipped with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot so beachgoers can stay connected to weather and surf reports. Finally, the Colorado Z71 Hurley concept also features a Chevrolet Performance concept exhaust system to complement the performance of the all-new 3.6 liter V-6 engine that debuts in the 2017 Colorado. Featuring direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation), it’s rated at 308 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, enabling 7,000 pounds of max trailering. It’s also paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
