Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison is an Off-Roading Menace

Thanks to an exciting collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles, Chevrolet is able to announce a brand-new Silverado model this year — the Silverado ZR2 Bison. This truck boasts improved off-roading performance, due to an enhanced engine and a wide array of specialized equipment.

The ZR2 Bison is powered by a second-generation 3-liter Duramax® turbodiesel engine that improves horsepower by 10 percent over its predecessor, and torque by 7.6 percent. These increases in performance are possible thanks to enhancements like new fuel injectors, new steel pistons with an improved combustion bowl, and better temperature control.

A variety of off-roading equipment betters the ZR2 Bison’s performance even further. For example, it boasts bumpers made of high-quality, AEV-stamped steel, complete with heavy-duty recovery points and built-in step pads. There’s also five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates that protect your differential, transfer case, and fuel tank, as well as exclusive 18-inch AEV tires. And all of this is on top of the improvements already offered by the Chevy ZR2, like Multimatic™ DSSV spool-valve dampers.

This off-roading menace will be available before the end of this year. Keep an eye out for its arrival, and let us at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow know if you want to take it for a spin.

Chevrolet Reveals All-Electric Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado has consistently raised the bar for what a truck can do. Each model year represents the automaker’s latest innovations ranging from tech advancements, comfort features, and towing capabilities. For model year 2024, Chevy is reinventing the Silverado with an eco-friendly powertrain.

Plus, the 2024 Silverado EV will deliver a stylish look thanks to the automaker’s innovative Ultium platform.

“We had no constraints when it came to designing the Silverado EV with dramatic style and flexible utility because we didn’t need to work around a traditional propulsion system,” said Phil Zak, executive director of Chevrolet Design. “The Ultium Platform allowed us to redefine what it means to offer expansive new storage and utility possibilities.”

Crew Cab is the only configuration offered in the 2024 Silverado EV. The RST and WT trims feature storage you can customize to suit your needs. A storage compartment in the front of the EV truck that resists the weather and can be locked, the eTrunk, is another innovation in the Silverado EV.

Chevrolet Announces First-Ever Electric Silverado Pickup

As part of its commitment to release 30 electric vehicles globally by the end of 2025, Chevrolet has announced it will build an all-electric version of the popular Silverado pickup truck right here in the U.S. The electric Silverado will be built at the former Detroit-Hamtramck plant, now named Factory ZERO. This plant will be dedicated to building only EVs, including the electric Silverado and the upcoming GMC Hummer EV.

While no major details have been released about the electric truck, Chevrolet estimates that it’ll have an impressive range of more than 400 miles on a full charge. Additionally, Chevy will use its 100 years of truck expertise to ensure the electric Silverado is equally as capable as its gasoline-powered sibling. Chevy hasn’t announced when the truck will be released, but sources estimate it’ll go on sale in early 2024 and a 2023 model.

In addition to investing over $2 billion in Factory ZERO, General Motors is investing $2.3 billion in a new Ultium Cells LLC battery cell manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. That plant is slated to open in 2023 and open up 1,300 new jobs. Ultium Cells LLC is a joint venture between GM and LG Energy Solution, and the Spring Hill plant will be the second Ultium plant in the country. The other plant, which also received a $2.3 billion investment, is located in Lordstown, Ohio.

Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition Models Are Looking Good

Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition Models

If you’re looking for extra style and off-road capability, you can now buy one of two Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition models: the Silverado Midnight Edition and Silverado Rally Edition.

Mark Sobczynski, the Silverado marketing manager said, “Customer choice is a competitive advantage for Chevrolet, because no two truck drivers are alike.” It’s no question the Midnight and Rally Editions offer a tantalizing choice for buyers.

Midnight Edition

The Midnight Edition douses everything in black while upgrading the suspension for rougher terrain.

The grille, bowties, badges, bumpers, off-road assist steps, and exhaust tips get a healthy covering of bold black to create an almost sinister look. Its 18-inch wheels also get painted black and fitted with Goodyear® DuraTrac® off-road tires.

DuraTrac® tires are necessary because the Midnight Edition is about more than just appearances. It includes upgrades from the Z71 Off-Road Package like Rancho mono-tube shocks, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates, as well as an upgraded ground clearance from the 2-inch suspension lift.

Available on the LT, Trail Boss, and Custom Trail Boss trims.

Rally Edition

The street-focused Rally Edition goes for a more athletic, sporty look. The edition provides a choice of black, white, silver, or red exterior colors that show up through the black on the Rally Edition’s custom grille. Race-inspired black stripes roll down the hood and tailgate while the wheels grow to 20-inch black wheels on the Custom trim and 22-inch wheels on the RST trim.

It will also be the only truck in the segment offered with an Autotrac® automatic two-speed transfer case, 120-volt bed-mounted power outlet, head-up display, and Power Up/Down Tailgate.

Additional highlights include significant improvements to box length, width, and volume, including best-in-class 83.5 cubic feet of cargo volume for the 8-foot long box. Like the 2019 Silverado 1500, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD gets a new DuraBed with roll-formed steel construction. In addition to bold new looks and larger dimensions, the new Silverado HD also gets an updated 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that offers 22 percent more torque and 18 percent more max towing capabilities than the outgoing 6.0-liter V8 gas engine.
