High-performance Chevrolet Colorado Bison & ZR2 Bison may come soon

Apr 13, 2018 | Same topic: Highlights of the week
There will likely be a high-performance lineup of the Chevrolet Colorado in the future.

While the sales figure of the 2.8L turbodiesel-driven pickup does not show any signs of slouch, the US carmaker still decides to give the Colorado even more power by building a high-performance new version likely to be slotted above the ZR2 and LTZ.

According to the latest car news, Chevy has already filed trademark application for the two names Chevrolet Colorado Bison and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, stirring up high hopes for a more rugged Colorado lineup in the near future.

Although the Bison nameplate itself can’t disclose any detail about the new vehicle, it is expected to be a high-performance variant of the Chevrolet Colorado or a utility-based version.

The Bison nameplate was derived from the sizable heavy-duty Class 8 trucks. So it seems that the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison would be a ZR2 focused mainly on utility with various accessories on its bed. This is evaluated to be fitted with the already-rugged ZR2.

The new Bison version is hoped to be a high-performance variant of the Chevrolet Colorado or a utility-based version

Otherwise, a stronger variant of the Colorado ZR2 is certainly being built to go head to head with the forthcoming Ford Ranger Raptor.

All stay predictions at present. Let’s wait and see what the Chevrolet Colorado Bison wil actually have to offer.

In the Philippines, thanks to the excise tax exemption for pickup truck segment, the Chevrolet Colorado 2018 price mostly decreases with only exception of the base model which slightly goes up by P81,000. Please refer to the below table for the last Cherolet Colorado price:
