Yes, the ZR2 is far from a base truck. But based on a suggestion from the peanut gallery (*waves at PrincipalDan*) we thought it would be a good idea to see if a “base” off-roader is a healthier bet than upgrading to the full meal deal.

Want to know more about Zr2? Read this article!
In fact, calling the ZR2 a base truck – with its DSSV dampers and other gonzo off-road kit – seems like heresy to your author. Jumping a Colorado ZR2 at 40 mph over an obstacle on a trophy truck track proves just how capable the thing is.
(How’s that Ranger Raptor coming, Ford? Oh, it isn’t? I see. Thanks for the mobility scooter, then.)
Chevy has, however, added another layer onto the ZR2 cake. Called the Bison, is its extra gear worth the cash? Or are gearheads better off with a “base” ZR2 and spending the money on mods of their own? Let’s see.
By the way, did you know that Chevy quietly dropped the manual transmission option that used to appear on the 2WD base Colorado? Me either, despite the build-n-price tool showing a stick on the floor in the promotional image. Chalk up another loss in the standard column.
Jumping right into the deep end, the Bison is technically an option package and not an additional trim. For $5,750, shoppers will net themselves front and rear bumpers designed by the off-road boffins at AEV. In fact, it is said that development of the Bison started not long after the ZR2 appeared, with the company’s boss essentially being told to envision a ZR2 as if he himself were taking it to rugged locales like Road of the Bones in Russia.
AEV additions also include more robust skid plates, new wheels, and a few styling tweaks like the CHEVROLET billboard grille and a set of fog lamps. Mercifully, the Bison package is a standalone option, one that does not require selecting other gear in order to get the good stuff.
You’ll notice the truck shown here is the Extended Cab model, not a Crew. This is because your author firmly believes that Colorado buyers are far better off taking the longer bed than longer cab, since legroom is so woeful in the Crew that it’s just as logical to get the smaller cab. It’ll likely only get used for enclosed storage, anyway.
According to the AEV website, very little of what makes up a Bison is available as standalone parts. I’m sure if someone waved a bag of cash at AEV they’d craft the bumpers for them but it doesn’t seem to be mass-market stuff. Yet. However, their snorkel kit is $459 compared to Chevy’s $725 performance air intake system.
My answer? Yes. I’d pop for the Bison. In a world where a set of bumpers are close to $3,000, and skid plates are equally expensive, the Bison package is a fair (but not bargain) priced package. Just stay away from everything else on the ZR2’s option list.

NEW YORK — General Motors will auction the final production seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette this summer, with the proceeds benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The announcement, along with confirmation of the Next Generation Corvette’s development, was made this evening by General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra, who was honored at the foundation’s annual Footsteps to the Future Gala in New York.
“GM, GMC and Chevrolet support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and its commitment to injured and fallen military members, first responders and their families,” said Barra. “The sale of this iconic Corvette will help the foundation continue its good work, and pave the way for the Next Generation Corvette that we will introduce on July 18.”
The final seventh gen Corvette — a black 2019 Z06 model — will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast sale in Connecticut June 28. Registration information is available at www.barrett-jackson.com.
Every dollar of the winning bid will go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named for New York City firefighter Stephen Siller, who died during the Sept. 11 attacks.
The foundation builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically injured service members and helps pay off the mortgages for families of first responders killed in the line of duty. More information is available at www.tunnel2towers.org.
“The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation thanks GM, GMC and Chevrolet for supporting the brave men and women of our armed forces and our first responders,” said Frank Siller, chairman and CEO. “This generous gift will help us provide more injured veterans with the independence they deserve.”
For the past five years, GMC has supported the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation as its national foundation of choice. In that time, it has helped the foundation raise more than $10 million. That includes $2.2 million raised last year, with $925,000 of it coming from the auction of the first production 2019 Corvette ZR1. It was purchased by Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale.
Other money has come from employee donations and events across the country such as 5K Tunnel to Towers races and other activities sponsored by GMC dealers.
GM is committed to helping those who have given so much for their country. GM’s current and retired workforce includes 60,000 veterans.

SUVs have come a long way since the last time I owned one.
I had a pair of 1991 Isuzu Troopers, the old, boxy ones. I especially loved the enormous cargo area.
The ride quality wasn’t great — it felt a little like driving a box truck — but I loved them both. I wish I still had one.
I’m feeling nostalgic about those SUVs because I spent the week driving the new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, which is nothing like my boxy Troopers.
Chevrolet has reintroduced the Blazer as a midsize SUV crossover. It seats five and has a starting price of $28,800.
The Rally Sport AWD version I tested has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission and a base price of $43,500. My Blazer came equipped with the optional Enhanced Convenience Package and the Driver Confidence Package, which added $3,575, for a sticker price of $47,050. A $1,195 destination charge brings the sticker total to $48,270.
The Blazer sits nicely in the Chevrolet SUV lineup between the smaller Equinox and the larger Traverse. It shares a platform with the GMC Acadia and the Cadillace XT5.
The interior and nose are inspired by the new Camaro. I had more than one person ask if I was driving a Camaro SUV.
It sure looked like it to me, and that’s a good thing.
I’m not a car reviewer. I drive an occasional new vehicle to take a look at the new technology.
I’m a bells and whistles guy who loves nothing more than figuring out what all the buttons do in a new car. I hate having to look things up in the manual.
So if you’re here to read all about horsepower and torque, you may be disappointed. For gearhead reviews, try Car and Driver or Motor Trend.
The 2019 Blazer RS AWD is full of technology. For the first few days, I constantly found new buttons and settings to explore. There are different trim levels, so not all the features I am mentioning are available on every model.
The center screen is an 8-inch touch display that controls the Blazer’s entertainment and climate systems (although there are separate climate control buttons under the screen).
The audio system has AM/FM/SiriusXM along with Bluetooth so you can pair your phone to play music or make calls. There is also a 3.5mm aux-in port so you can connect an iPod or non-Bluetooth device.
The entertainment system has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. I tested CarPlay with my iPhone. You’ll need to connect via USB cable to enable CarPlay. The Blazer has three sets of USB inputs that include a standard USB-A port and the newer USB-C port.
Chevrolet is finally cashing in on the high-performance crossover craze.

The new Chevrolet Blazer is a very sporty SUV thanks to its Camaro-inspired styling, so it was surely only a matter of time before Chevrolet launched a performance-focused version. With the rise of performance SUVs such as the Ford Edge ST and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it makes sense for Chevrolet to cash in on this growing segment. Chevrolet has been keeping quiet about a performance-focused Blazer, but now the automaker has confirmed a Blazer SS will make its world debut at the New York Auto Show on April 17.
Sadly, the Blazer SS won’t utilize the Camaro’s 6.2-liter V8 with 455 hp. Instead, it will get the same turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 found in the Cadillac CT6, which produces 404 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 10-speed automatic. That makes it more powerful than the Edge ST, but still no match for the 700-hp Jeep Trackhawk. 0-62 mph takes 5.3 seconds before the Blazer SS tops out at 155 mph. All-wheel drive, of course, comes as standard to handle all that extra muscle.

Yes, it’s true that Mardi Gras is a day filled with drinking, bead-throwing, and parading through the streets of New Orleans. But the roots of the celebration go much deeper than one may think. Mardi Gras, which is French for “Fat Tuesday”, is actually an ancient celebration that first started in medieval Europe.
After the celebration was introduced to Rome, Venice, and then to France at the end of the 17th-century, Mardi Gras made its way to French-American coloniesthis link opens in a new tab in 1699. On March 2nd, 1699, French explorer Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville landed about 60 miles away from what would later become New Orleans. He named this place “Pointe du Mardi Gras” on the eve of Fat Tuesday. Bienville later established “Fort Louis de la Louisiane” (now the city of Mobile) in 1702. In 1703, Fort Louis de la Mobile celebrated the first American Mardi Gras.
But what’s the deal with calling the holiday Fat Tuesday, you askthis link opens in a new tab? This name, and the celebration that comes along with it, is actually of Catholic origin. Fat Tuesday is the last day of the “Carnival” season — a mainly southern European and Latin American celebration filled with feasting, drinking, and dancing. It’s basically a season-long Mardi Gras.
The day after Fat Tuesday is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. During Lent, Catholics often fast in preparation for Easter. So before the fasting takes place, those who take part in Lent indulge in their favorite foods and drinks during Carnival and Fat Tuesday.
Fat Tuesday isn’t mentioned in the Bible, and actually, the Bible explicitly tells practitioners to stay away from drunkenness, sexual immorality, and debauchery. Knowing this, some experts theorize that ancient Catholics may have adopted Pagan fertility celebrations. Others believe Mardi Gras is simply an act of rebellion against the Church’s negative view of sex and gluttony.
Mardi Gras is all about releasing your sins before attending Ash Wednesday services. Now knowing the meaning behind the name, we’re ready to embrace the food, drink, and fun during this year’s February 13th celebration. Bring on the king cake!
