Last month, Chevy pulled the covers off the most off-road-capable truck you can imagine. The new Colorado ZR2 Bison variant was a joint venture, designed by Chevrolet and American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), a premium off-road aftermarket manufacturer.
The new Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison rides on humongous 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires, which are wrapped around solid 17- by 8-inch aluminum wheels. You’ll get all of the normal Colorado features with the ZR2 Bison variant, but the special edition model adds class-exclusive front and rear locking electronic differentials, segment-exclusive Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, off-road rocker protection, and an Autotrac transfer case.
The exterior of the new Colorado special edition boasts a CHEVROLET lettered grille (instead of the classic bowtie) and Bison decals.
For improved off-roading, the Colorado ZR2 Bison includes unique skid plates designed by AEV to protect the fuel tank, engine oil pan, front and rear locking differentials, and transfer case. But the Colorado ZR2 Bison offers more than just unique skid plates: AEV also designed stamped steel front and rear bumpers for the Colorado for more off-road protection.
“More and more enthusiasts are discovering that Colorado is ideal for off-roading, especially overland travel,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing, Chevrolet Truck. Will you be one of those enthusiasts? If so, let Pine Belt Chevrolet know!
