Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison caught testing

This previews a likely production version of the rugged overlander

Last year at SEMA, we saw a fairly radical Chevy Colorado ZR2 concept from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The already capable pickup had been fitted with a ton of gear for serious off-roading, including an upgraded suspension, 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, skid plates, a snorkel and a winch. We were in love. Then Chevrolet trademarked the "ZR2 Bison" name (AEV uses a bison in its logo), which had us hoping for a production version of the SEMA concept. Now, our spy shooters have caug

Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison trademark filed, could be upfitted overlander

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 alread

Chevy reveals diesel-powered Colorado ZR2 Concept [w/video]

Chevrolet is reintroducing its best-known off-road badge for the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, with the return of the ZR2 on the all-new Colorado pickup. While we're plenty excited about this particular concept, it's what sits under the hood that we're most excited for, because this particular vehicle is motivated by Chevy's eagerly antic

Chevy to undercut Raptor with Colorado performance off-roader? [w/poll]

You would think that, given the popularity Ford has found for the F-150 SVT Raptor, its crosstown rivals would be all too keen to follow suit. But they haven't. The Ram Runner isn't a production truck, it's an add-on, and General Motors has barely even tried. That might change, but not
