The 2,000-unit production run of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison variant has sold out virtually as soon as it hit the market. In an interview with the GM Authority website, Sandor Piszar, director of marketing for Chevrolet’s truck division, confirmed that dealerships had received their shipments of the special edition and couldn’t meet the demand among consumers.
The ZR2, a variant designed for off-roading, was equipped with even more extreme off-roading equipment and functionalities for the Bison edition. Clearly, the truck convinced significant numbers of consumers to jump on board.
In a nutshell, the Bison gets five skid plates for its undercarriage, conceived to protect the oil and gas tanks, the transfer case and several other components vital to the proper functioning of the truck in extreme conditions.
The Bison variant is also fitted with redesigned bumpers that can withstand more severe shocks. These were developed conjointly with the American Expedition Vehicles firm. Among the other unique features, locking front and rear differentials, Multimatic DSSV shocks and an elevated suspension providing a 31-inch approach angle. The vehicle rides on 17-inch wheels designed for surviving hostile terrain.
A truck for serious off-roaders, in other words.
Given the super-high demand and the speed with which the bisons wer snapped up, it’s safe to say we’ll be getting similar variants cropping up in the near-future – from GM, of cours,e but also from the competition.
