Eaton Supplying Electronic Locking Differentials for Chevrolet’s New Colorado ZR2

Date: December 15, 2016

SOUTHFIELD, MICIHGAN… Power management company Eaton announced that it is supplying its ELocker® electronic-locking differentials for the new Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 mid-size truck. The class-exclusive differentials are applied to both the front and rear axles and help deliver exceptional off-road performance.

Eaton’s ELocker provides off-road control at the touch of a button via an electro-magnet that locks the differential to prevent a single wheel from spinning. The driver can independently lock only the rear axle, or both the front and rear axles for very extreme conditions. The product includes Eaton’s latest design advancements for on-command engagement and disengagement.

Eaton’s ELocker technology is part of its overall Torque Control portfolio that features a range of products for passenger car, sport utility and truck applications. Eaton also supplies the automatic rear locking differential that is available on other Colorado models, as well as Chevrolet’s Silverado, Tahoe, and Suburban.
