The video opens with the appearance of the front lamps of the Chevy Silverado ZR2 Bison. If you compare it with other ZR2 series, the fog lamps indeed look different. Besides, it seems that the Silverado ZR2 Bison will also get a stunning steel bumper produced by AEV. If you take a look at the bumper carefully, it may remind you that the same bumper is also owned by the Colorado ZR2 Bison version. Chevy looks like collaborating with AEV more for this pickup truck series. The AEV product is not only for the bumper but also for the wheels. In the video, it is indeed clearly seen that the wheels of this version have that AEV symbol.

At the end of the video, there is a shoot of the tailgating truck. The tailgate looks wide although we don’t know yet if the truck is big enough or not. The tailgate is also dominated by silver color making it look modern yet artistic. Well, it also fits well with the color palette of the truck which is dominated by white.


Unfortunately, that 30-second video doesn’t show many things as well as the details of the truck. But if you are an automotive observer who is interested in Chevy products, you may pay attention to details that have not been in the previous versions. Something interesting is, of course, about the name itself. The Bison series is previously offered in the Colorado variant. Adding the name to Silverado means there will be features or details that are common to Colorado. And that’s true since the bumper of this product is made by AEV, just like Colorado.
