Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison Starts From $48,045 – $5,750 More Than the Standard ZR2 (News)

The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison runs $5,750 more expensive than the standard ZR2.

Today, Chevy announced pricing for the Colorado ZR2 Bison. The upcoming extended cab version, built in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles – kicks off at $48,045, including a $995 destination charge. Crew Cab models kick off at $49,645. That’s $5,750 more than the standard ZR2, but includes a range of new equipment.

The price includes new front and rear bumpers to which buyers can mount a winch. You also get a new grille with “CHEVROLET” emblazoned on the front, five boron steel alloy skid plates, and 31-inch Goodyear Wranger Duratrac tires wrapped around rims bespoke to the Bison. All parts fitted to the Bison from AEV are backed by Chevrolet’s standard factory warranty. An AEV snorkel is also available for a more rugged look.

As with the standard model, the Colorado ZR2 Bison is available with a 3.6-liter V6 gas engine or the 2.8-liter Duramax diesel. The 3.6-liter engine puts out 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, and mates up to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The diesel puts out more torque – 369 lb-ft – but less horsepower, at 181. It also only comes with a six-speed automatic. The Colorado ZR2 Bison also retains the DSSV Multimatic spool-valve shocks.

The 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison will go on sale in January 2019. Stay tuned to for more updates.
