Can The 2023 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison Take On The F-150 Raptor?

Building on the success of the Colorado ZR2 Bison, Chevrolet has collaborated yet again with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) to develop the Silverado ZR2 Bison—the bowtie’s answer to the Ford F-150 Raptor. 

Designed to unlock even more off-road capability, the Silverado ZR2 Bison features improved stats for overlanding adventure. The front approach angle increases to an estimated 32.5 degrees (compared to 31.8 degrees). The departure angle improves to an estimated 23.4 degrees (compared to 23.3 degrees). Ground clearance is set at 284 millimeters.

The Silverado ZR2 Bison reaches new levels of off-road confidence also in part due to the high-quality steel integrated in the AEV bumpers and underbody protection. The AEV-stamped steel front and rear bumpers are constructed of 3-millimeter-thick steel and are powder and e-coated. The press-hardened steel used for the underbody skid plates is three-and-a-half times stronger than an equivalent cold-stamped high-strength steel plate and provides incredible resistance to underbody damage.

Other modifications include: a front bumper that’s compatible with an available winch accessory; five unique hot-stamped boron steel skid plates providing protection for the front, rear differential, transfer case, and fuel tank; steel rocker panel protection; and gloss black 18-inch AEV wheels paired with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires.

Powering the Silverado ZR2 Bison is Chevrolet’s 6.2-liter V8 mated to a 10-speed automatic delivering 420 horsepower and 624 Nm of torque. It also has Multimatic 40-millimeter DSSV spool-valve dampers, which increase maximum front and rear suspension travel as well as front and rear e-lockers.

Pricing for the 2023 Silverado ZR2 Bison starts at a whopping USD 78,490 (P 4.38-million).
