If you are looking for a heavy-duty pickup truck that can handle any terrain and challenge, you might want to take a look at the Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison. This is a new variant of the Silverado 2500 HD that combines the off-road prowess of the ZR2 package with the extra protection and durability of the Bison package. The result is a beast of a truck that is ready for any adventure.
The Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison is based on the refreshed-for-2024 Silverado HD, which features a new exterior design, a more refined interior, and improved technology and safety features. The HD ZR2 Bison builds on this solid foundation by adding a host of upgrades that enhance its performance and capability off the pavement.
The Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison has two engine options: a 6.6-liter gas V-8 that produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque or a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8 that delivers 470 horsepower and a massive 975 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. The diesel engine offers more towing capacity, with a maximum rating of 18,500 pounds, while the gas engine has a slightly higher payload capacity, with up to 3,397 pounds.
The HD ZR2 Bison also features a unique suspension system that includes specific upper and lower control arms, steering knuckles, and Multimatic DSSV dampers. These dampers are specially tuned for off-road use and have been proven in GM's desert racing programs. The suspension also provides a 1.5-inch lift over the standard 4x4 model, which improves the ground clearance and the approach, departure, and break-over angles.
To further enhance its off-road capability, the Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison comes with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler MT tires on 18-inch aluminum wheels, a rear electronic locking differential, full underbody skid plates made of steel and aluminum, and an exclusive off-road mode that optimizes the throttle response, transmission shift points, traction control, and stability control for different terrains.
The HD ZR2 Bison also stands out from the crowd with its distinctive exterior styling. It has a new front fascia with an integrated winch mount and recovery hooks, a blacked-out grille with ZR2 badging, LED headlights, fog lights, black fender flares, hood vents, side steps, and bed rails. It also has a unique tailgate with Chevrolet lettering and ZR2 Bison decals.
The interior of the HD ZR2 Bison is equally impressive. It has leather-appointed seats with ZR2 logos on the headrests, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with contrast stitching, carbon-fiber trim on the dashboard and door panels, and rubber floor liners. It also has an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a Bose premium sound system, wireless charging, multiple USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. For safety and convenience, it has features like forward collision alert, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear park assist, rear camera mirror, head-up display, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and start, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, power sunroof, power sliding rear window, power tailgate release.
The Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison is expected to go on sale in summer 2023 as a 2024 model year vehicle. The pricing has not been announced yet, but it will likely be higher than the regular HD ZR2 model. However, considering all its features and benefits over its competitors like the Ford Ranger Raptor pickup and the Ram 2500 Power Wagon, it will be worth every penny.
The Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Bison is not just another heavy-duty pickup truck. It is a truck that can do it all: tow heavy loads, haul large payloads, cruise on the highway, and conquer any trail. It is a truck that combines muscle and poise, power and finesse, toughness and refinement. It is a truck that deserves to be called the ultimate heavy-duty off-roader. @via Chevrolet.
