The truck could have been previewed last fall at SEMA

The Chevy Colorado ZR2 is a favorite here at Autoblog. It was a finalist for our most recent Technology of the Year award thanks to some trick spool-valve suspension. It's supremely capable off road without giving up anything on the streets. It looks like Chevy may have something bigger planned for the ZR2. AutoGuide reports that GM recently filed a trademark for the name "ZR2 Bison." In fact, we may have already seen a preview of the truck last fall with the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept at SEMA.

It had automatic braking and light-up wheels and tires

Imagine a vehicle with automatic braking, remote operation, self-opening doors and a big screen on the dash. You're probably imaging a Tesla Model X, but we're actually talking about a car called the Golden Sahara II, a custom car originally built in the 1950s, and it's going for auction at Mecum's event in Indianapolis.
