Chevy is introducing a more capable, off-road-ready variant of the beloved Silverado ZR2 with its recent release of the Silverado ZR2 Bison. The impressive and rugged truck was made in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV).
The Silverado ZR2 Bison has an estimated 32.5-degree front approach angle and a 23.4-degree departure angle. The ground clearance is 11.2 inches, which makes it a capable beast even on the most challenging terrains. Rock crawling is a thrilling feat thanks to the truck’s Terrain Mode and off-road chassis.
Off-road-ready features include AEV-stamped steel bumpers, underbody protection, steel rocker panel protection, front tow hooks, and exclusive gloss black 18-inch AEV wheels. These pair to 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires.
The Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison has a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain generates 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. You can opt for the available 3.0-liter Diesel Duramax® engine. It offers enhancements and updates for the 2023 model year including new fuel injectors, new steel pistons with a revised combustion bowl, retuned turbo compressor, and improved temperature control features. It increases previous ratings to 305 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque.
