Coming Soon: Silverado ZR2 Bison

It was a fantastic and family-filled holiday weekend here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, as we have all gotten some time to enjoy our loved ones and fireworks, heaping plates of all-American food, and blazing hot temperatures as usual. Even as the skies lit up with awesome shells and as we enjoyed a bit of much needed downtime, we had brand-new cars, SUVs, and trucks on our mind!

Trucks such as our prized Chevy Silverado easily became a customer favorite over the past few years, as everyone loves to tow, haul, and successfully get through a demanding workday with this sensational rig that feels bulletproof. Earlier this month, GM Authority claimed there is something exciting and brilliantly boulder-crushing in the works: a camouflaged version of the upgraded Silverado ZR2 Bison.

The short clip that has been circulating reveals a few highlights of what makes the ZR2 a full-fledged Bison, beginning with a sturdy bumper. The bumper is a durable and well-constructed unit that has been shaded to offer up a 31.8-degree approach angle. 

The corners are cut to provide a good amount of sturdy body, and much-needed clearance for the wheels while handling ruts and other jutted obstacles on the trail. The front bumper in the teaser portrays restored fog lights on the edges, leaving a previously non-existent space for the front license plate. As the challenges of the wild can leave you suddenly stuck, there are also most likely recovery points just below. The new and detailed list of equipment found online also adds four trusty Bison Edition skid plates from front to back, the useful Multi-Flex tailgate, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. 

The remaining visual bits of the video teaser offer up pretty sweet glimpses of a black Bowtie and black and red ZR2 badge, presiding as the identifying stamp of a trail conquering beast that any outdoor-loving driver would covet. This Silverado could pick up the newly updated 3.0-liter Duramax inline-six GM as the power source under the hood for the 2023 model year, but it also could end up being the 6.2-liter V8 that makes 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The newest and largest Bison will need to have a few more details officially released soon, but the entire hunting/fishing and expedition-bound  crowd has something to have reoccurring and diesel-rich daydreams about!
