2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Comes With Own R2 Unit
July 13, 2015
It was probably the first thing I noticed when I climbed aboard our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado for the first time. It stood out more clearly than the Chevy MyLink start-up screen, grabbed my attention more than the distinctive hexagonal pattern pressed into the Z71's seats.
There's a little R2 unit set into the dash as if it were hitching a ride on an X-wing fighter.

Perhaps a little claw will come out to make repairs if the Colorado ever suffers a windshield rock-strike.
What is it, really? This tiny representation of everyone's favorite trash can is in fact a sun load sensor that supports the automatic climate control system. Every car with automatic A/C has one, but few of them generate a wry grin as much as this one.
