4 Awesome Off-road Features Of The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison

4 Awesome Off-road Features Of The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison

This Is How You Make An Awesome Off-Road Truck

With the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and the upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor in the mix, off-road worthy small trucks are shaping up to be the sweethearts of America. Chevrolet can’t miss this party. Luckily, it already visited the party with the Colorado ZR2, but something even more off-road thirsty had to end up in Chevy showrooms. Called the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, the new truck is a specially prepared Colorado ZR2 modded by AEV (American Expedition Vehicles). It is their first Chevrolet work as the company is best known for its off-road worthy forays with the likes of Jeep Wranglers or RAM trucks. Nevertheless, Chevrolet opting to partner with AEV produced one of the most astounding, small, off-road worthy trucks currently on offer and I am here to tell you about all the astonishing mods AEV did to it.

Yet, before I start, know what AEV President, Dave Harriton said this about the project:

“We’ve been following Colorado since its introduction, and the ZR2 really captured our attention. As this is the first Chevrolet vehicle we’ve given the AEV treatment to, we wanted to do something special with the industry’s first use of hot-stamped Boron steel. We also expect that Colorado drivers will love the added ruggedness of our front and rear bumpers on ZR2 Bison.”

We have seen the first glimpses of the truck with the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept that was unveiled at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. Luckily, the process of fruition and transformation into a proper production model did not last too long. You can go now and buy your Colorado ZR2 Bison by AEV at a Chevy dealer and get a full warranty with it too.

Ok, what’s new then?

2019 Chevrolet Silverado

2019 Chevrolet Silverado

More technology, less weight, and a new turbodiesel

Chevrolet has pulled the covers off its all-new, 2019 Silverado 1500 half-ton pickup truck. While Chevy teased the truck back in December at the Texas Motor Speedway at Chevy’s centennial celebration, the full details only became available at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Chevy also made sure everyone knew the 2018 Detroit show marked 100 years since the brand launched its first pickup.

The 2019 Silverado is completely new and shares almost zero parts from the outgoing truck. Even the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s are revised for increased efficiency. The truck’s fully boxed frame is now 88 pounds lighter but has 10 percent more torsional rigidity, and the truck’s overall weight has dropped 450 pounds when comparing crew cab V-8 models from 2018 and 2019. Chevy did this by using aluminum. Yes, after years of dogging Ford for building its trucks from recycled beer cans, Chevy has made the switch, too. But not every body panel made the transition – only the parts that swing, which includes the hood, doors, and tailgate. The rest is steel. This includes the bed floor, which Chevy says is made from higher-strength, roll-formed steel than before.

Of course, the interior has been completely revamped, too. You’ll find those details, along with so much more, down below.

Updated 06/29/2018: Chevrolet announced prices for the 2019 Silverado. Check out the "Prices" section for the full details.

We are in an age where the pickup beasts are getting tamed! Oh, the horror!

Just days before the 2019 Silverado’s debut, Chevrolet decided to reveal one key piece of information – the introduction of a four-cylinder engine to its line-up! That’s right, the heavyweight beast is all set to get an engine comparable to a hatch; but wait, puny, you say? This four-cylinder engine is more potent than the V-6 engine!

Things... They are a changin

The automotive market has changed so much over the last 15 years, and its constant evolution is taking us to places we never expected and showing us things we never thought we’d see. After Ford and Chevy integrated modern four-cylinder engines into the Mustang and Camaro, it was only a matter of time before the led to even stranger things, and in this case, that’s a four-cylinder Silverado. Chevy has announced that the 2019 Chevy Silverado will be offered with a 2.7-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder. In fact, it’s not only offering it but listing it as standard equipment on the entry-level LT and the RST. Both come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

It explains that random name trademark, doesn’t it?

One of two Chevrolet Colorado concepts that were presented at the 2017 SEMA Auto Show is reportedly headed to production. That’s the word coming out of Off-road.com, which alluded to the Colorado ZR2 AEV as the concept that could be turned into a full-blown production model. Specific details have yet to be revealed, but if it’s true, the production version of the Colorado ZR2 AEV will probably carry the “ZR2 Bison” name.

The Chevy Silverado has been a hot topic lately. The 2019 Silverado 1500 was unveiled in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Now, it’s the 2020 Silverado HD’s turn in the spotlight. It’s not scheduled to make its debut until the fall of this year, but Chevrolet is getting a head-start on the teasing game with the first official image of the heavy-duty pickup.

There’s an Outrageous 800-HP Chevy Silverado Package Available Through Dealerships!

Extensive mods make this pickup a sports car killer

Think about the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and its 808-horsepower it achieves on pump gas. Now put that horsepower into a short-bed, single-cab pickup truck. Yeah, that’s exactly what we’re talking about.

This is the 2018 Yenko/SC Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and it’s built in New Jersey by a company called Specialty Vehicle Engineering. Though the original Yenko brand of dealership upgrades is long gone, SVE keeps the image alive through its upgrade kits offered for several General Motors vehicles.

For the 2018 Yenko/SC Silverado, SVE takes a regular Silverado 1500 Z71 and shoehorns a custom-built 6.8-liter supercharged V-8 under the hood with nearly every performance part imaginable. The result is an 800-horsepower truck with 4WD able to outgun most sports cars on the road. Best of all, anyone can order the truck through their

The 2019 Chevy Silverado Offers an all-new 3.0-liter Duramax; Revised 5.3- and 6.2-Liter Engines

Improved efficiency awaits future owners

The Chevrolet Silverado never actually left us, but the debut of the all-new 2019 model feels like a second coming for the Bowtie’s massively popular half-ton pickup. It has a dramatic new look, a lighter packaging, and a staggering number — eight in total — of trim options that’ll make your heads spin in excitement. Best of all, though, is the fact that Chevy is also diversifying the Silverado’s engine lineup, including an all-new Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel engine that will compliment revised versions of Chevy’s 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines.

The 2019 Silverado’s 3.0-Liter Duramax Is Chevy’s First I-6 Turbodiesel

Also the first I-6 since Chevy killed the Trailblazer in 2009.

Chevrolet is breaking the status quo with its all-new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel. Announce in conjunction with the new 2019 Silverado 1500, this light-duty turbodiesel marks a few big milestones for the automaker. It breaks convention by avoiding the familiar V-6 design used by both Ford and Ram’s 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesels.

First, the 3.0-liter I-6 Duramax is the first straight-six diesel engine Chevy has ever made, and second, it’s the first inline-six produced since the Chevy Trailblazer and its 4.2-liter Atlas I-6 ended production during the 2009 model year.

The Chevrolet Silverado made its long-awaited debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. If you’re already drooling over the possibility of owning one in the future, you’re in for a treat because the Silverado will have no shortage of trim options to choose from. According to Chevy, the new half-ton pickup truck will be available in eight different trim options, spread across three different ranges. As far as getting your money’s worth, the new Silverado is giving you plenty of breathing room to choose the best trim that suits your needs and your wallets.

Does The 2019 Silverado's Dash Resemble A Porg?

Does The 2019 Silverado’s Dash Resemble A Porg?

Am I The Only One Seeing This?

I might just have an overactive imagination, but I swear I see a Porg in the center console of the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Porg is a mystical bird-like creature from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the similarities are just uncanny – especially with the Silverado’s optional brown leather dash treatment. The Porg’s cute little head and pudgy round body have the same shape as the Chevy’s 8.0-inch MyLink screen, HVAC controls, toggle switches, and connectivity ports.

Of course, I’m sure Chevy’s interior designer didn’t glean inspiration from the Porg. In fact, he likely takes serious offense to my observation considering the years he’s spent sculpting and perfecting his vision, and only then to fight for its approval against endless committee meetings and reviews.

Still, It’s going to take me a while for this coincidence to escape my mind. Surely I’m not the only one. Are you seeing this? Tell me in the comments.

Watch The 2019 Chevy Silverado’s Power-Lift Tailgate!

And check out those larger bumper steps and storage boxes

Chevrolet’s all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 is making waves at Detroit thanks to its slick design, new interior, and list of high-tech features. One such feature is the power up/down tailgate. Simply press a button and the tailgate lowers and lifts on its own. Button locations include the tailgate itself, the key fob, and inside the cabin. Chevy is the first to offer such a tailgate. Ford did debut a power-release tailgate on the 2015 F-150, but it doesn’t close on its own. Chevy’s power tailgate is available on the higher trim level trucks and comes standard on the range-topping High Country.

Other new features at the 2019 Silverado’s business end include larger CornerSteps and new in-bed storage boxes. The new bumper steps are said to accommodate steel-toe boots, which should be a hit at the job site. The cargo bed also has available storage boxes that secure to the bed walls. These removable boxes offer lockable and water-tight storage for gear while not impeding on the width of the bed floor. A sheet of 4x8 plywood or drywall will still fit between the wheel wells.

Last but not least, Chevy has added a 120-volt household power outlet inside the bed. The three-pronged outlet will run any power tools or tailgating party equipment.

Bowtie’s new full-sized pickup now weighs 450 pounds less than the current model

Chevrolet promised to turn heads at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and it did just that with the introduction of the 2019 Silverado. There’s a lot to unpack about Chevy’s all-new, half-ton pickup truck, and one of the most interesting developments about it has to do with its weight. It may not seem like it in on the surface, but the new Silverado, among other things, is 450 pounds lighter than the current model.

Chevy Drops Teaser of Silverado 4500 and 5500 Prior to March Debut

Chevy Drops Teaser of Silverado 4500 and 5500 Prior to March Debut

Medium-duty trucks set to elevate GM’s position against Ford wide F-Series

Chevrolet has dropped a darkened teaser image of its upcoming medium-duty truck, the 2019 Silverado 4500 and 5500. The truck will compete directly with the Ram 4500 and 5500, along with the Ford F-450, F-550, and even the F-650. Chevy officially announced the trucks were coming at the 2017 Texas State Fair.

In a statement at the fair back in September of 2017, John Schwegman, Chevy’s U.S. director of commercial product, said, “We are earning new business because we have more solutions to help businesses grow. The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will stand out because we’ve designed the trucks around how customers work. They will be powerful, maneuverable and among the easiest trucks on the market to upfit with specialized bodies, such as dump bodies, rollbacks, freight boxes and more."

The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will be powered by the current 6.6-liter Duramax V-8 turbodiesel and use the Alison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive and 4WD will be offered, as well as the regular cab and crew cab configurations. Important to upfitter companies, the trucks will come in a variety of wheelbases and GVWRs to accommodate a wide range of jobs. Fleet managers will also appreciate the optional of 4G LTE connectivity, which is great for keeping track of fleet maintenance and vehicle locations.

Idiot Tries To Off-Road In The Wrong Place, Gets New Silverado Stuck In Frozen Pond: Video

Idiot Tries To Off-Road In The Wrong Place, Gets New Silverado Stuck In Frozen Pond: Video

Capability can’t fix stupid

Trucks are fun, aren’t they? Big suspension, big tires, and all four churning the mushy, muddy ground... what’s not to love? Unfortunately, even the most capable of vehicles out there can’t handle everything, a lesson hard-learned by one Silverado driver in Illinois who apparently found the limits of his friend’s new Chevy pick-up early before sunrise New Year’s day.

The story was captured by local Fox news affiliate Fox2/News 11, who spoke with Austin Opp from the Chain of Rocks Recreation Corp., which owns the muddy ground in question. “When the lake goes dry in the winter, there’s a lot of temptation for guys to think they can just come out here and go four-wheeling,” Opp said. “This is the worst I’ve ever seen out here. Nobody’s usually dumb enough to try to go out on the lake, and he did.”

Apparently, the truck’s owner and his friend ventured out onto frozen lake assuming it was a frozen field. By the time they had realized their mistake, they broke through the ice and were quickly stuck in the grime. To try and fix the problem, the duo rented a backhoe, which, predictably, broke through and got stuck as well. Now, both the truck and the backhoe will remain where they are until spring, at which time the thaw will sink the vehicles under six to seven feet of water.

Oops.

Remember the Crazy Chevy SSR? Doug Does

Remember the Crazy Chevy SSR? Doug Does

It’s a convertible pickup muscle car with retro styling

Chevrolet has made some interesting things over its 100 years, but none compete with the 2003-2006 SSR. This contraption defied classification and spawned during a troubled time during “Old GM’s” heyday and right before its collapse in 2009. The SSR is a hardtop convertible pickup with a semi-permanent tonneau cover over its composite bed, powered by a small-block V-8 and wrapped in retro styling that harks back to the late 1940s Advance design pickups. Oh, and it shares its hydro-formed ladder frame and suspension system with the Chevy Trailblazer.

On the inside, the SSR was a hodgepodge of mid-2000s GM infamy. Green digital readouts, a chunky steering wheel, a hundred-button stereo face, and odd proportion everywhere. But for all its weirdness, the SSR’s interior had some redeeming qualities. The center console and door panels featured body-colored paint; there were aluminum bits to brighten things up, and heated seats.

The small-block V-8 was the third-generation 5.3-liter making 300 horsepower and 335 pound-feet of torque. A four-speed automatic was the only choice. Then for its final year in 2006, Chevy dropped in the 390-horsepower 6.0-liter V-8 with 405 pound-feet of torque. The extra power really woke up the SSR, but the best improvement was the available six-speed manual transmission. Power was only sent to the rear wheels.

Despite its quirks, the SSR’s greatest downfall was its price. In 2003 it started at $41,995 and could be optioned up to $47,000. By 2006, the base price had grown to $43,180 and its topped out around $50,000. That was rather expensive for the time, especially considering the competition that shared that price bracket.

Still, the Chevy SSR was a unicorn that will forever lurk in the halls of GM oddities. Give it 40 years, and these things will command big money on the auction block. For now, you’ll just catch glares and stares as you drive the SSR down the road.

GM Will Continue Current Silverado & Sierra Production Past 2019 Model Launch

GM Will Continue Current Silverado & Sierra Production Past 2019 Model Launch

Canada’s Oshawa plant will build current truck for unknown time

General Motors has apparent plans to keep the current-generation 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 in production while simultaneously building and selling the all-new, 2019 versions. GM has tapped its Oshawa plant in Canada to continue production while its other plants in the U.S. and Mexico will build the new model.

“This strategy will help us meet customer demand as we transition our production and introduce our exciting new models into the market starting later in 2018,” said Jennifer Wright, a GM Canada spokeswoman to Automotive News Canada. “The length of the program in Oshawa will be dependent on market demand.”

For anyone who has followed the auto industry, this news isn’t surprising, especially for GM. Most recently, GM built both the previous and new generation of Equinox crossover and Jeep plans to do the same with the outgoing Wrangler JK while the new 2018 Wrangler JL’s production is ramping up. Automotive News reports that even the current Ram 1500 will continue production alongside the next-generation Ram 1500 when it begins assembly in early 2018.

As for the Oshawa’s future, Canada’s Unifor union president Jerry Dias, told AN, “They are being very careful about what they are announcing right now. But they have invested a fortune in Oshawa. Right now the commitment is to the existing portfolio. More decisions will be made.”

Dissecting the 2019 Silverado’s new looks

Chevrolet’s soft debut of the 2019 Silverado 1500 Trailboss foregoes the big, juicy details, but gives us a great first glimpse at the all-new, next-generation pickup. About the only official specs include the higher strength steel bed floor, a substantial reduction in overall weight, and the presence of that new Trailboss trim. Chevy is withholding the rest until the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in mid-January.

Nevertheless, we’re going over what we know so far and taking a close look at the differences between the outgoing 2014-2018 Silverado and the 2019 model. Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments below!

This Is It! Meet the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

A helicopter airlifts the Trailboss trim to its debut

Continuing the modern trend of sneak-peak reveals ahead of official debuts, Chevrolet dramatically introduced its all-new, 2019 Silverado 1500 pickup truck by airlifting the truck under a helicopter on December 16. The spectacle took place at the Texas Motor Speedway in view of the media and members of Chevy’s new Truck Legends owners club.

Chevy hasn’t released much information on the new 2019 Silverado, but we do know several key points. For starters, the new Silverado will come with a Trailboss trim. First seen on the Chevy Colorado, this trim takes the Z71 off-road package and adds a two-inch suspension lift and Goodyear DuraTrac tires. Chevy also says the new Silverado will come with more engine and transmission combinations, more technology and convenience features, and has a “significant reduction” in weight over the outgoing Silverado.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 Midnight Edition – Driven

A black cloak and knobby tires for Chevy’s half-ton brawler

The current Chevrolet Silverado isn’t that old, really. It debuted for the 2014 model year and underwent a very mild cosmetic refresh for 2016. Yet, in the high-stakes game that is the American pickup market, Chevy has to stay current. An all-new Silverado is destined for 2019, but until the fall of 2018, we’re stuck with the current truck. While the 2017 Silverado is hardly a bad apple, Chevy is keeping it fresh by offering several special edition models and among them is this, the Midnight Edition.

I recently spent a week driving a 2017 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab LTZ Z71 Midnight Edition, driving it the same way any truck owner would, well, save for towing a 9,300-pound trailer. I didn’t have one laying around. I did throw a couple coolers and lawn chairs in the bed, haul five people around, take the kiddo to school, and muddle through everyday life like anyone would. Turns out, the Silverado is a fantastic vehicle for active families.

2017 Chevrolet ZR2 Race Development Truck

2017 Chevrolet ZR2 Race Development Truck

A ZR2 built for racing on rougher terrain

Chevy brought two custom Colorado ZR2 pickups to SEMA this year with some heavy modifications that make them even better off-road. One was built in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles and meant for over-landing while this, the Colorado ZR2 Race Development Truck, is built for high-speed desert running. In fact, many of the upgrades on this truck were first tested on Chad Hall’s Colorado ZR2, which ran in the “Best In The Desert” race series.

The list of modifications isn’t overly extensive, showing just how capable the Colorado ZR2 is from the factory. The truck’s crown jewel is its DSSV spool valve shock absorbers from Multimatic. DSSV shocks were developed for supercars and F1 race teams, so its adoption for an off-roader was unconventional. The factory truck also has better ground clearance than a regular Colorado, along with bespoke bodywork that improved approach and departure angles. Adding to its capability are front and rear electronic differential lockers – something not found on any other Colorado. Still, Chevy improved on the ZR2’s design for hard-core racing.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado Performance Concept

2018 Chevrolet Silverado Performance Concept

Add boost, haul more

Folks like to modify their rides for a variety of reasons. Some like to add a dash of personalized style, while others want to enhance the vehicle’s natural talents. However, some of the most interesting results come from the desire to take a vehicle out of its comfort zone, and as a result, create the unexpected. The Chevrolet Silverado Performance Concept is a great example of something from that third category. While the Silverado is best known for its ability to haul goods, Chevy decided to see what would happen if it built a Silverado that could also haul ass. As such, this 2018 model gets a boatload of extra power thanks to a new concept supercharger system that ramps up output from the truck’s 5.3-liter V-8 engine by more than 100 horsepower. Of course, while gobs of extra power is always appreciated, a well-rounded build needs the complementary gear to go with it, and the Silverado Performance Concept delivers with additional performance parts, styling upgrades, and more.

Making its debut at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the Silverado Performance Concept joins roughly 20 other factory-backed Chevy models in attendance to entice both builders and enthusiasts alike with Bow Tie-styled goodness. Read on for the details on this go-faster truck.
