Could Chevrolet be preparing a special overland-ready Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison truck for production with the help from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV)? This is what a recent Off-Road.com recently reported, based on the Bison trademark name filing by General Motors and information from an anonymous dealer representative at at recent meeting in Las Vegas.
The AEV concept truck (shown above) is outfitted with many components to make the already capable ZR2 even more so. This includes special suspension with a lift, larger tires, winch, snorkel, rack system, accessories, and an on-board air compressor.
Which components with the production-ready ZR2 Bison retain and how much will it cost? There is no official information yet on whether the Bison package is coming, what it consists of, and how much it will cost. The anonymous source cited by Off-Road.com estimated the cost of V6 model between $45,500 and $50,000. If it has all of the elements shown on the AEV Concept, the price could be much higher than $50,000.
