Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison sells out

The company apparently can't keep up with strong demand for the off-road edition.

General Motors has apparently sold out of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, the latest range-topping package with an off-road focus.

Speaking to GM Authority, Chevy truck marketing director Sandor Piszar has confirmed that dealers quickly ordered the entire production allocation of 2,000 units for the 2019 model year.

Billed as a performance pickup for overland adventures, the Bison features five skid plates to protect the oil pan, fuel tank, transfer case and other vital components. Development partner American Expedition Vehicles also helped redesign the front and rear bumpers, both built from stamped steel.

The package is equipped with both front and rear locking differentials, along with Multimatic DSSV dampers. Lifted suspension provides clearance for 31-inch off-road tires on 17-inch wheels.

Strong demand for the $48,045 truck will presumably inspire GM and its rivals to continue rolling out new special-edition pickups at an even faster pace.
