2025 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison
ZR2 Bison is the most offroad-capable trim level of the 2025 Chevy Colorado. This equipment package comes with special equipment to conquer any terrain that is on the driver’s mind.
It will stand on 33-inch all-terrain tires. ZR2 Bison will be 2 inches higher from the ground than other trim levels, and that will be 11.9 inches in total. Also included in the special equipment will be rock guards, underbody protection, an additional LED light bar on top of the truck, and much more. The suspension of the truck will also be adapted to the off-road drive. That means it will get a special suspension from Fox with shock absorbers. Also, it will be equipped with a front and rear lock differential and a rear limited-slip differential. Also, the exterior of the car will be slightly different from other trim levels. The truck will gain unique ZR2 Bison badges around the exterior, and it will also get unique front and rear bumpers so departure and approaching angles can be improved.
2025 Chevy Colorado EV
For the 2025 model year, Chevy is preparing a Colorado EV. It should be GM’s cheapest full electric truck, and it will be based on the GM BT1 platform with an Ultum 800-volt battery pack that offers a 350KV fast charging option. There is no official statement from GM about the power of the powertrain that will be inside the Colorado EV, but we can guess it will be a 2-motor setup and it should be capable of producing up to 400 horsepower with a range of up to 350 miles.
The exterior of the truck will also be unique. It will feature a modern, futuristic design that will be dominated by a unique C-shaped headlight and an aggressive-looking grille. Also, the taillight will keep the same futuristic design principle and have a unique modern shape.
