2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

Chevrolet still hides details about the 2019 Colorado and we don’t know would the upcoming model year bring the mid-cycle refresh. However, it has been reported that Colorado could add new off-road focused version which should be even more capable than the current ZR2 version. Aside from the Z71 variant, with the “basic” off-road capability, Chevy introduced the ZR2-badged version with significant off-road upgrades. This off-road runner arrived for the 2017 model year and Chevy could soon introduce even more capable ZR2 version.

Recent reports suggest that the brand trademarked the ZR2 Bison nameplate and it could arrive as another version of the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. It would get the Bison suffix combined with unique styling elements and off-road enactments. The new version will be heavily influenced by the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept that was presented at the 2017 Shema Show with the aftermarket upgrades.
