Chevy may be cooking up an even more off-road hungry version of the Chevy Colorado ZR2, since a trademark was recently filed for the ZR2 Bison name. What exactly could it be? Maybe its a production version of the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept that debuted last year.
The reason the name hint at a production version of the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept has to do with the fact that Chevy teamed up with American Expedition Vehicles to create the concept. American Expedition Vehicles actually features a bison on its logo, which could be the connection.
The Colorado ZR2 AEV concept was designed for overlanding with its 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine, AEV front and rear off-road bumpers, underbody skid protection, expedition bed rack, high clearance fender flares and high-rise snorkel, AEV DualSport beadlock wheels, and 35-inch BF Goodrich KM2 Mud-Terrain tires.
As with all trademarks, just because an automaker files for one, it doesn’t mean that it will ever be used.
