The new Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is a heavily armoured version of the already capable midsize off-road machine, and we borrowed one to see how it holds up on some trails.
We tackled a snow-covered Colorado mountain trail with the truck, putting the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs through some serious work to see exactly how well they pull in the cold. And the answer is surprisingly well, as the aggressive tread pattern pays off in the white stuff.
As the truck clawed its way up the hill, pulling us closer to the summit, it was hard not to notice how plush the suspension is, offering the truck’s occupants a soft ride no matter how hard the driver decided to push it.
Besides the five skid plates added underneath, the Bison also gets protection at the corners of the box thanks to added rock rails and can be fit with an optional snorkel.
So does opting for the Bison truly improve the performance of the Colorado ZR2? You’ll have to watch our video review above to find out.
