For the ultimate off-road capability, Chevrolet has teamed up with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) to create the ZR2 Bison. In 2019, Overland Journal rated the Bison as the Overland Truck of the Year, beating off competition from Ford, Jeep, Nissan, and Toyota. The ZR2 Bison is available in five exterior colors: Summit White, Satin Steel Metallic, Sand Dune Metallic, Crush, or Black. Inside, you’ll find leather upholstery with AEV embroidered head restraints.

The ZR2 Bison’s outstanding exterior features include a Chevrolet lettered grille, fog lamps, front and rear steel bumpers with the AEV logo, large AEV-designed fender flares, unique dark graphite 17-inch wheels, rear recovery hooks, and the facility for a front-mounted winch. For when the going gets tough, it has full-length rock sliders and five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates to help protect the engine oil pan, fuel tank, transfer case and front and rear locking differentials.

The ZR2 Bison’s off-road running gear includes front and rear electronic locking differentials, cast-iron control arms for superb strength, DSSV Multimatic suspension dampers, and a factory-modified rear axle with a 3:42 ratio. For improved traction and clearance, the Bison’s track is 3.5 inches wider than the Z71 and the suspension is raised by 2 inches.
