Like all vehicle manufacturers, Chevrolet isn’t slumbering in its quest to have competitive products hit the tarmac. The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison is one of the latest delighting off-road machines to come from the automaker and it has all the qualities to fight for the top space.
Delivering 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque is a 3.6-liter V-6, which is the standard. There is also the option of a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel inline-4, which delivers a 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
Among elements that will ultimately set apart this Chevy is a lifted suspension(2 inches more than regular ZR2). There are the five skidplates made of ultra-tough hot-stamped Boron steel that protects the oil pan, transfer case, fuel tank, front and rear differentials.
In addition, as if to give the Bison the look of a warrior, there are stamped steel bumpers both at the front and rear, which further protects the off-road master against stray rocky terrain. A huge Chevrolet mark is conspicuously on display over the front grille.
The Bison wears newly designed 17 x 8-inch aluminum wheels that are customized only for it. Developed with the help of off-road experts American Expedition Vehicles, this new truck will fundamentally influence the next generation of off-road vehicles from Chevrolet.
Chevrolet further says that the vehicle, whose delivery will begin on January 2019 will be priced at $48,045, inclusive of a $995 destination charge. There are two variants, the extended-cab variant and the crew cab variant. The crew cab variant will net around $49,645.
