“The Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison is the ultimate half-ton truck for backcountry adventures,” said AEV CEO and Founder Dave Harriton. “The Silverado ZR2 Bison checks all the boxes — robust stamped steel bumpers, complete underbody protection, a factory-tuned off-road suspension, and locking differentials front and rear. We are confident off-road enthusiasts are going to love this truck.”

Charging Forward With the ZR2
Bison customers will enjoy many of the flagship ZR2’s standard features—a standard 6.2L V-8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission will deliver 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque to power through tough terrains.
It’s new 40-millimeter multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers and uniquely tuned spring will increase maximum front and rear suspension travel when compared to the Silverado Trail Boss.
The ZR2 Bison will also include front and rear e-lockers as well as specific off-road chassis and suspension calibrations, such as Terrain Mode, which will allow for one-pedal rock crawling.
A Partnership Driven by Performance & Quality
AEV is a premium off-road aftermarket manufacturer. It has a strong track record for providing accessories that excel in overland expedition environments. The 2019 Colorado ZR2 Bison quickly became the most popular special edition package offered with the Colorado ZR2.

The Next Chapter for Off-Road Capability
Scott Bell, Chevrolet vice president, said, “Our most recent collaboration with AEV resulted in the much-acclaimed Colorado ZR2 Bison. We’re thrilled to team up again to bring customers Chevrolet’s next chapter of off-road dominance, this time on Silverado.
