This is the Colorado ZR2 Bison testing sans heavy camo in Metro Detroit.
The ZR2 Bison originally debuted in 2019, and took the Colorado ZR2 to another level through its collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The original ZR2 Bison comes equipped with steel front and rear bumpers, boron-steel skid plates that protect the truck’s oil pan, differentials, fuel tank and transfer case, which provides an additional level of protection compared to the base ZR2’s aluminum plate. The Bison also features a faux Raptor inspired grille, bigger fender flares and unique 12-spoke wheels.
Looking at these shots, the all-new ZR2 Bison will stick to its original formula, with a higher ride, bigger tires and exclusive looks. The Bison will ride on a set of 12 spoke beadlocked rims, which are finished in black and are wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler Territories. This tire setup appears to be larger than the current ZR2 Bison (which has a 31-in. tire), and is most likely a 35-in. tire, similar to what's found on the Ford Bronco Sasquatch.
The third-gen Colorado is powered by a 2.7L turbo engine, which is available in three different tunes depending on the trim. The Chevy Colorado ZR2 features the most powerful tuned 2.7L turbo, with power coming in at 310 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque.
Expect an official debut in the coming months.
