What did the buffalo say to his son when he left for his college?
Okay, tito jokes aside, what you're looking at here is the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, a new performance variant. It's a collaboration between the American carmaker and American Expedition Vehicles, an off-road aftermarket manufacturer.
The additions to the pickup include five skid plates covering all the essential parts, stamped steel front and rear bumpers, 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road rubber, and an Autotrac transfer case. It's powered by a 2.8-liter turbodiesel with 186hp and 500Nm on tap.
“The Colorado Z71 offers a full suite of off-road equipment, the maneuverability of a midsize truck and the driving range of a class-exclusive diesel engine. The Colorado ZR2 offers even greater off-road capability with class-exclusive front- and rear-locking differentials and Multimatic DSSV dampers. And now, Bison offers customers an even more extreme turnkey off-road truck ready to tackle your next adventure," said Sandor Piszar, director of marketing for Chevrolet Truck.
The Bison will go on sale in the US early next year. Check out these photos for a closer look.
