MotorTrend Ranks Chevy Colorado ZR2 AEV Bison a Top Midsize Truck Pick

Searching for a new pickup near Cobleskill with proven capability? The new Chevy Colorado ZR2 AEV Bison midsize truck was recently crowned champ of a MotorTrend overlanding comparison test*.

Pitting the Colorado ZR2 AEV Bison – essentially a Colorado ZR2 modified by American Expedition Vehicles – against the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and the Jeep Gladiator, this comparison involved driving about a hundred and fifty miles on the Mojave Road, defying many obstacles, including everything from fording rivers with window-height waters to traversing rough terrain with 60-mph winds.

Through it all, even though all three midsize trucks offered compelling capability, only the Chevy came out ahead due to its capability, its poise, and its comfort on and off-road. Specifically, MotorTrend drivers who participated in the test noted their Colorado combined many positive aspects from the Jeep Gladiator like a locking front and rear differential with aspects from the Toyota Tacoma, like its ability to travel at high speeds across rough desert terrain.
