If you need a can-do-it-all truck, Chevy is checking all the boxes with its first-ever Silverado ZR2 Bison. You can’t go wrong with this impressive variant when it comes to work and play. Here is a closer look at a few of the Silverado ZR2 Bison’s highlights.

Off-road partnership

The all-new Silverado ZR2 Bison was designed with expert input from American Expedition Vehicles. AEV is known for its off-road knowledge, and the Silverado ZR2 Bison takes off-grid adventures to new heights. It is equipped with specialized equipment such as a factory-tuned suspension, underbody protection, and steel bumpers to handle any journey. The ZR2 Bison rests on 18-inch AEV wheels and 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT Tires.

“The Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison is the ultimate half-ton truck for backcountry adventures,” said AEV CEO and Founder Dave Harriton. 

Off-road dimensions

The Silverado ZR2 Bison may draw inspiration from its sibling, the ZR2, but it excels in form and function. Instead of a 31.8-degree approach angle in the front, the ZR2 Bison offers 32.5 degrees. Instead of a 23.3-degree departure angle, the ZR2 Bison delivers 23.4 degrees. The ground clearance of 11.2 inches is standard for both the ZR2 Bison and the ZR2.

Since announcing the production of the all-new electric Chevrolet Silverado EV, General Motors has made nearly 85,000 Silverado EV WT reservations for roughly 370 companies. To gain customers’ confidence and ease the transition to an electric fleet, a team of GM Fleet Experts has become the main source of solution-based assistance. These experts are listening to their customers’ concerns and taking note of what people want.

Consider this proactivity a foreshadowing of what the Chevy Silverado EV WT has to offer its future truck owners, in the name of trust and reliability. The Silverado EV’s advanced technologies are backed by Ultifi, a Linux-based software platform that enables fast and frequent software updates — so you don’t have to worry about tech bugs bogging down your workflow.

Speaking of innovative tech, GM’s Ultium battery platform optimizes the Silverado EV’s handling experience, even when trailering, thanks to its well-engineered weight distribution and low center of gravity. The Ultium Platform also means you’ll get up to a 400-mile driving range, when fully charged.[1] GM is further easing customers’ concerns by offering various charging options, like standard DC Fast Charging capability.

To top it all off, the Silverado EV WT has the muscle to back up its electrical prowess. EV WT models will be able to tow between 8,000 to 20,000 pounds,[2] crank out 510 horsepower, and reach up to 615 lb-ft of torque.[3]

After more than 20 successful years with the Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle, Chevy has introduced the first-ever 2023 Silverado Police Pursuit Vehicle. With versatile capabilities and exceptional performance, the 2023 Silverado PPV meets the modern-day needs of law enforcement.

The truck is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission, delivering a total of 355 horsepower. The six-piston Brembo front brake calipers with 16-inch rotors bring the truck to a halt when needed while the standard heavy-duty engine air filter increases the truck’s overall performance when on the beat.

When duty calls, the Silverado PPV can tow up to 9,300 pounds. Meanwhile, the standard skid late, locking rear differential, and Rancho shocks (with the Z71 off-road package) offer up some impressive off-road capability. With the available 2-inch lifted suspension, the Silverado PPV has an 11.35-inch ground clearance and a 25.9-degree approach angle to conquer barriers easily. The Silverado PPV is also optimized for specialty equipment upfitting, including auxiliary wiring and Surveillance Mode circuits that allow the installation of horns, sirens, and lighting controls.

Chevy Teams Up with Jesse Iwuji Motorsports for NASCAR Xfinity Series

2022 Chevrolet Corvette | Fort Stockton, TX

Almost nothing beats the high adrenaline rush of watching a NASCAR race – except maybe driving in one. Chevy also shares this love of racing, which is why the brand continues to sponsor new talent.

The latest driver Chevrolet has chosen to sponsor is Jesse Iwuji, a United States Naval Academy graduate and current Navy Reserve officer. Jesse Iwuji had 5 starts in the 2020 – 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series and also appeared 15 times in the 2018 – 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Jesse Iwuji Motorsports is also co-owned by Emmitt Smith, who made his name in football and is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Smith and Iwuji met in 2020 following Smith’s sponsorship of Iwuji’s car at the event. The pair’s venture will get engineering and team development assistance from Chevrolet, a veteran in the NASCAR world.

Starting in 2022, Jesse Iwuji Motorsports will begin in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in a Chevrolet Camaro SS. The vehicle, the No. 34 Empowering People More Camaro SS, will be driven by Iwuji himself. Of the new team-up, Iwuji stated, “There couldn’t be a more authentic manufacturer partnership for me than one with Chevrolet.”

Though you can’t get a track-ready Camaro at Amistad Motors, you can stop in to test drive some of our racing-inspired performance vehicles like the Camaro and Corvette.
