Chevy Reveals New Colorado ZR2 Bison

2018 Colorado ZR2

The Colorado ZR2 has gained a reputation for being an exceptional off-road truck, boasting impressive performance capabilities as well as various technologies designed specifically to optimize off-road ventures. If you didn’t think the ZR2 could get any better, think again.

Chevrolet announced that it will be adding an all-new performance model to the ZR2’s lineup: the ZR2 Bison. Chevy collaborated with American Expedition Vehicles – a premium off-road aftermarket manufacturer – to produce the ZR2 Bison.

The Colorado ZR2 Bison introduces an array of features that make the vehicle even more capable and ready for off-road adventuring. To enhance underbody protection from rough terrain, the Bison features five skid plates that cover major components like the fuel tank and class-exclusive front and rear locking differentials. AEV constructed these skid plates with Boron steel, and they also designed the Bison’s front and rear bumpers using Boron steel, helping protect the vehicle’s body from obstacles and whatever lies in its path.

The founder and president of AEV, Dave Harrilton, said, “As this is the first Chevrolet vehicle we’ve given the AEV treatment to, we wanted to do something special with the industry’s first use of hot-stamped Boron steel. We also expect that Colorado drivers will love the added ruggedness of our front and rear bumpers on ZR2 Bison.”

The new ZR2 Bison will also feature a bold grille with the “Chevrolet” name, a set of 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratec off-road tires, and all-new aluminum wheels designed for the Bison. We at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet love the look of the new ZR2 Bison and think you should definitely consider it if you love off-roading.

Redesigned Chevy Silverados Coming Soon

Redesigned Chevy SilveradoThe times, they are a-changin’ for the Chevrolet Silverado. Chevy has been busy with its new Silverados lately, having introduced the new 2019 Silverado 1500 this past January and the 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD in March. There’s one more new Silverado on the horizon: the 2020 Silverado HD. The new Silverado HD caters to the needs of those who work with heavy-duty workloads. That’s yet another redesigned Chevy Silverado to be launched within two years.

There are many notable changes in these new pickup trucks. For the Silverado 1500, one big aspect is its lighter weight. Paired with a versatile engine lineup, this 2019 Silverado 1500 delivers an impressive performance while maintaining notable fuel efficiency. The Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD trucks are actually the first medium-duty Silverado pickups. The automaker has designed them to be drivable, convenient, easy-to-use commercial trucks.

Chevrolet continues to increase its standards for performance, durability, strength, and passenger comfort. While details of the 2020 Silverado HD won’t be available until early 2019, we’re sure that it’s going to be a bold new generation. As with the other Silverados, a slew of configurations and trims should allow passengers to find just the right fit for their needs.
