This year, Overland Journal introduced a new award for Truck of the Year. For the inaugural year, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison was named the Overland Truck of the Year in the mid-size truck segment. Overland Journal also gave awards for the best full-size truck, adventure motorcycle, and SUV. To determine the winners, editors sent the trucks through thousands of miles of testing, both on- and off-road, over the course of nearly a year.
Overland Journal editors were impressed with the stunning capabilities of the Colorado ZR2 Bison, as well as its great available features. These include its Turbo-Diesel engine, a winch-ready steel front bumper, full-length rock sliders, front and rear locking differentials, its rear steel bumper, and a great suspension system.
The Colorado ZR2 Bison is ready to tackle your next adventure with a wide range of standard off-road-ready equipment including five skid plates, a modified rear axle, large fender flares, cast-iron control arms, and Revolutionary Multimatic DSSV dampers.
Power comes from the standard 3.6-liter V6 with 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. However, it’s also available with a diesel engine, which has an output of 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Colorado ZR2 Bison has a maximum payload capacity of 1,325 pounds.
