CHEVY CREATES A COLORADO BUILT FOR OVERLANDING

Scott Evans

Have you ever seen a bison run? It’s not a graceful gallop like a horse, more skipping like a goat. I imagine most readers won’t be familiar with such matters. I am, only because one charged my car once. I don’t know if it was personal or if bison just don’t care for Volkswagens, but he gave up after a short chase. The ZR2 Bison, however, doesn’t give up so easily.

If you’re into trucks, you’re likely familiar with the standard Colorado ZR2. It transforms the already solid Colorado 4x4 into an incredibly capable off-road truck with locking front and rear differentials, beefy tires, underbody protection, hacked-off bumper ends, and Multimatic DSSV shock absorbers.

American Expedition Vehicles, Chevrolet’s development partner, takes the ZR2 to the next level. It’s appropriate that AEV features a bison bull as its mascot, because the even-more-rugged ZR2 skips over rocks like Billy the kid. Known for selling factory-quality aftermarket truck and SUV parts (not to mention complete vehicles) forhardcore off-roaders, AEV specializes in overlanding—those who travel long distances off-road and camp along the way, completely self-sufficient.
