First hitting the scene for the 2019 model year, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison serves up some impressive off-road capability, and now, we’re checking out the upcoming 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison in some of the most revealing photos yet.
Despite the black-and-white wrap that covers the body panels, this 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison prototype provides us with a relatively clear view at the off-road pickup’s tough-looking exterior. Let’s start with the front end, where we see a fascia similar to that of the standard third-generation Chevy Colorado ZR2. However, this prototype Colorado ZR2 Bison also shows a new front bumper that’s reshaped to offer even more clearance than the standard ZR2 bumper. Other notable bits include the Chevy Flowtie mounted in the upper grille, which incorporates a red inner color, while red tow hooks are mounted low in the fascia. Interestingly, it also appears as though the front skid plate on this prototype may have been removed.
Overall, the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is shaping up to be quite an imposing vehicle. The stance is wide and tall, while in the corners, we see what appear to be a set of beadlock-capable wheels. The rollers on this prototype look to be identical to the wheels equipped by the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison prototype that GM Authority featured last December, once again rocking a black finish, plus Goodyear Wrangler rubber for the traction. Tire sizing likely measures in at 35 inches, similar to the Ford Bronco Sasquatch.
The tall suspension is matched with extra-wide fenders, giving the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison some serious attitude. Also check out the burly rocker guards mounted low along the flanks of the pickup.
Finally, the rear end of this prototype model is equipped with placeholder tail lamps, possibly the result of the Colorado ZR2 Bison’s wider rear fenders. Also expect a unique rear bumper treatment.
As a reminder, the third-generation Chevy Colorado made its big debut for the 2023 model year, running the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard. Multiple states of tune are on offer depending on the trim level selected, with the ZR2 model running the 2.7L Turbo High-Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
