The 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison got its big debut this past May, with General Motors unveiling an all-new, trail-ready midsize pickup decked out in a wealth of high-end components developed in partnership with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). Built specifically for off-road enthusiasts, the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison doesn’t disappoint when the pavement ends. Now, we’re getting up close and personal with the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Spotted on the floor of the 2023 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, this 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is covered in Summit White Paint (paint code GAZ), which gives it a crisp, clean look that’s just begging to hit the local mud pit.
As already mentioned, AEV played a role in the development of the new Colorado ZR2 Bison, and as such, the off-roader is equipped with an AEV heavy duty front bumper, which also includes provisions for a winch. The front fascia shows off a Chevy Flowtie badge in the grille, inlaid in red.
Moving into the sides, we see a set of AEV 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels wrapped in 35-inch OD Mud/Terrain tires, which give the truck just the right amount of stick on loose surfaces. The new running gear rolls under AEV fender flares.
AEV was also called on to design the rear bumper, while in the bed, there’s a race-style tire carrier. Bison exterior badging completes the look.
The 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison also features extensive undercarriage protection thanks to a set of Boron skid plates and rocker protectors. The suspension is upgraded with segment-exclusive Multimatic front and rear Jounce Control Dampers and DSSV dampers. Paired with the new AEV body pieces, the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison offers a 38.2-degree approach angle, 26-degree departure angle, and 26.9-degree breakover angle.
The cabin space is a nice place to be as well, with an 11.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and AEV-branded headrests.
As for the greasy bits, the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison draws motivation from the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B Turbo High-Output gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. All of the go is fed through the second-generation GM eight-speed automatic transmission, a two-speed transfer case, and power-locking diffs front and rear.
