We’re spending this week with the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. Our unit is powered by the naturally aspirated 3.6L LGZ V6 engine mated to the GM 8-speed automatic transmission, and coated in the gray color called Satin Steel with the Jet Black leather interior.
The Bison is an extreme off-road machine based on the already capable Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, designed for serious off-roading, overlanding and exploration. To achieve this, Chevrolet partnered with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) to add several key parts, creating a unique adventure truck capable of taking on virtually all types of terrain. Our test unit is a Crew Cab, Short Box pickup. Tires are 265/65R17 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrains.
Here’s what the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison adds on top of the “regular” Colorado ZR2:
- CHEVROLET lettered grille
- AEV Front Bumper
- Fog lamps (T3U)
- AEV rear bumper (VHU)
- Wheel Moldings (B7O)
- Front floor liners (CPX)
- Rear floor liners (CPY)
- AEV Embroidered Headrests
- Fuel tank skid plate (PZ9)
- Front skid plate (PZG)
- Off-road rocker panels
- Rear differential skid plate (PZL)
- Transfer case skid plate (PZN)
- 17″ AEV aluminum wheel (RIG)
- 17″ AEV spare wheel (S4M)
The only component missing on our Bison test unit is the available snorkel air intake. We’ll share more information on why that is later, as well as our full take on how this truck performs on and off the road. We’ll even compare it to a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon in the mud, so stay tuned for all the details.
In the meantime, if you’d like to know more about the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison beyond the spec sheet, post your questions in the comments section, and we’ll reply as part of the GM Authority interactive review.
Ready…. set… go!
