With its jacked suspension, cutaway entrance fenders, and upgraded rubber, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 appeals to midsize pickup consumers who aren’t within the behavior of staying on dry, protected pavement over the course of a weekend. However, whereas the ZR2 is the Common Motors vehicle most minimize out for Oregon Path work, there’s all the time room for enchancment.
In a bid to fulfill these adventurous clients, GM seems prepared to supply a greater off-roader.
A trademark software filed by the automaker on April 2nd suggests the corporate plans to put a rugged idea truck into manufacturing, Off-Street reports. The identify “ZR2 Bison,” which GM hopes to apply to a manufacturing vehicle, heralds a brawnier, off-street ZR2 based mostly on the Colorado ZR2 AEV SEMA idea — a collaborative effort between GM and American Expedition Automobiles, the Montana-based mostly vehicle clothes shop.
GM confirmed off the idea, which seems prepared to take John Rambo into the guts of some Asian floor conflict, on the 2017 SEMA present.
Apparently, GM isn’t casually pursuing the thought. A manufacturing-prepared ZR2 Bison was proven to sellers at a current meetup in Las Vegas. “The AEV truck they revealed seemed almost equivalent to the idea vehicle with some minor variations,” one supplier advised Off-Street.
The Bison revealed by GM lacked a few of the extra extravagant add-ons seen on the idea, the supplier stated. The snorkel, mattress rack, and air compressor panel didn’t carry over into the manufacturing model, although it’s assumed consumers might nonetheless flip to AEV to full the package deal. Lewis and Clark by no means had it so good.
What would carry over? Almost certainly, the idea’s fender flares, lengthy-journey Chevy Efficiency suspension, different upgraded suspension elements (together with Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers), higher underbody safety, and beefier tires. GM and AEV shod the idea with 35-inch BF Goodrich KM2 Mud-Terrain rubber.
If GM pulls the set off on the Bison, anticipate a price bump from the ZR2’s after-supply MSRP of $forty two,995.
