Take the New Colorado ZR2 Bison Home Today


Are you ready to take your off-roading adventures to the extreme? Chevrolet has teamed up with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV)for the first time to bring you the new Colorado ZR2 Bison and we have it right here in Wilmington, NC at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet.


This Bison will be ready to take off-roading as soon as you take it off the lot, as it comes equipped with many protective features straight out of the factory.

5 skid plates which cover the engine oil pan, fuel tank, transfer case, and both front and rear locking differentials. The 5 skid plates are constructed of hot-stamped Boron steel which is a rarity for a production vehicle.

AEV- designed stamped steel front and rear bumpers is also a key focus on off-road protection. The steel bumpers give you excellent protection while traversing obstacles like rocks and logs.

Other key components are; trail recovery with the front featuring winch provisions and recovery points which are integrated into the rear. Another one is standard fog lights below the traditional headlights.



Rather than the traditional Chevrolet bow-tie, the Bison will have an exclusive flow-through “CHEVROLET” lettering grille. “Bison” decals are on the bedsides along with an “AEV Bison” logo on the tailgate of the new Colorado variant.

Wrapping the all-new ZR2 Bison-specific 17×8 inch aluminum tires wheels are the 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires. A standard all-terrain ZR2 Bison spare tire comes with the truck along with special larger ZR2 Bison fender flares, the Bison-specific wheels and fender flares were co-developed by AEV.

New Silverado to Feature Those Flashing Blue Lights (And Some Other Stuff)

The North American Truck of the Year – the all-new Silverado 1500 – has been adopted to join the police force as a Special Service Vehicle (SSV) and should start showing up on highways near you this summer, according to Chevrolet.

The Silverado 1500 Crew Cab “SSV package” will be a combination of the standard/base work truck (WT) and 1LS trim levels. They’ll use the same 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine that is available to consumers – producing 355HP and 383 lb.-ft. of torque (while still getting 23 MPG highway.) But that’s where the similarities end. The Silverado SSV will be equipped with a 170-amp high-output alternator and 730-CCA auxiliary battery, which will allow officers to drive and operate all of those computers, cameras, radios, and, of course, those flashing blue lights.

Other optional equipment will include spot lamps, siren system, and strobes for the grille, headlights, and taillights. Law enforcement agencies can also choose to swap the center seat to mount a vertical gun rack or computers, mount an auxiliary dome lamp, or install a rear-view camera. There will also be another feature called the “common key package” that would allow a municipality to operate all of their Tahoe PPV and Silverado SSV trucks with the same key.

So why the Silverado? Along with being awarded Truck of the Year, Pickup of the Year, Four-Wheeler of the Year, and dashing good looks, the Silverado 1500 was also recognized for its low cost of ownership, an important deciding factor for municipalities and government agencies. Other government agencies such as fish and game enforcement and border patrol are liking the idea of the Silverado SSV as well. We got more photos of the Silverado, Tahoe, and other vehicles to keep your eye out for on the road below.

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper

ImageChevrolet enthusiasts have been waiting for quite some time for General Motors to offer a high-performance pickup truck that would rival the Ford Raptor. Well, their wait is about to end thanks to Lingenfelter and Southern Comfort Automotive, who have developed the most powerful version of the 2014 Silverado – the Reaper.
The Reaper is fitted with a new front fascia, which includes a high clearance bumper, grill and hood. It is equipped with 17 inch bead-lock rims with 33 inch off-road tires and uses a Fox Racing suspension system, making it ready for all off road adventures. There’s also an integrated floodlight system and a reinforced plate.  The supercharged V8 engine producing 550HP is provided by Lingenfelter, and is connected to a Corsa exhaust system. The Reaper is also sporting custom exterior graphics, a bespoke gauge package and stitched headrests. All it seems to be missing is a little more cowbell.
The high-performance truck will have an estimated price of $50,000-$60,000 (which isn’t far off from the current Silverado 2500HD) and will only be available to select Chevrolet dealerships in the U.S. ( like Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC.) More details on the 2014 Chevrolet Reaper will be released in the coming week. Meanwhile, you can have a look at the truck’s dedicated website. If you’re interested in being on the list for the first Chevrolet Silverado Reaper when it arrives at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, just call the internet sales hotline at (910)798-2650 or toll free at (888)261-0090 and we’ll keep you updated!

Is GMC Going to Gain its Own Identity?

GMC Granite
GMC Granite Concept

For the past two decades, the GMC lineup has been parallel to Chevrolet’s SUV and truck lineup. For the Chevrolet Silverado, there’s the GMC equivalent, the Sierra. For Tahoe and Suburban, the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. The GMC Acadia and the Chevy Traverse are the lineups 3rd row SUV’s, and the Equinox and Terrain – crossovers.

GMC Granite Interior 2

But now, GMC is planning on de-railing from Chevrolet with their GMC Granite concept. First introduced in Detroit in 2010, the Granite was presented as a smaller, boxy “urban utility vehicle” (UUV?) similar to the Scion xB or Nissan Cube – designed to appeal to a younger crowd, with a bold exterior,  an interior reminiscent of loft-style apartments, and full-sized rear suicide doors.

GMC All-TerrainFrom bumper-to-bumper, the concept measures only 161 inches, making it shorter than the Chevy Cobalt (now the Cruze), and would definitely make it the smallest vehicle on the GMC lineup. But GMC has another concept: the Sierra All-Terrain HD, which is, for lack of a better word, beastly.

No official word has announced that either of these will be put into production, yet. But in our opinion, we think that only one or the other should be produced since that All-Terrain looks like it would eat the Granite for breakfast. Tell us what you think!

6 Reasons To Stop Shopping for a New Truck

Silverado Raised the BarSince the Silverado got it’s redesign inside and out last year, critics have been an extremely hard time trying to find anything bad to say about it. Besides the sleek and sharp-looking new body style, the new Silverado has undergone some re-engineering under the hood and some redesign on the inside to create more space for your passengers, cargo, and whatever else you may want to store, which is coming in handy with all of the awards it has been winning.

    Every year, AutoWeek does some extensive research on all newly-introduced cars (sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, convertibles, sportscars) and trucks (crossovers, SUV’s, and pickups) to the market and determine just one car and one truck as “the best.” Each new vehicle is expected to have best-in-class performance, economy, fit and finish, and reliability, to name just a few key areas. Billions of dollars ride on them, as does the success (or failure) of their companies. So what does this title mean? Of all the cars and trucks driven, AutoWeek testers narrowed them down to 2 that they collectively think sit at the pinnacle at the automotive mountain. They choose the most appealing and enjoying vehicles to own – that they themselves would happily drive daily.Chevrolet pulled off a first-ever clean sweep with this year’s awards naming the Corvette Stingray as best car and none other than the Silverado 1500 as best truck.

    “What ultimately pushed the Silverado over the top was that refinement. The cockpit is well built from quality materials, the seats comfortable for long hauls; we literally spent days behind the wheel with nary a complaint. And, of course, the Silverado will haul a ton of stuff.”

  2. Four Wheeler Magazine‘s 2014 Pickup of the Year
    The competition is a week-long test featuring both on- and off-road examinations throughout Southern California. From the deserts to the mountains, judges test the performance of each pickup in a number of terrain types and intricately-planned driving routes. The winning pickup represents the vehicle most capable of enduring nearly all critical situations and conditions.To participate in Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year competition, a vehicle must be either all new or substantially revised from the previous model year. All vehicles must have a two-speed transfer case, a production run of at least 1,500 vehicles available in
    the U.S., and be on sale by January 15, 2014.

    The Silverado won. You can read the rest here.

  3. Automotive and Business Fleet Magazines’ 2013 Fleet Truck of the Year
    This is an award that is judged and determined by qualified fleet managers reflecting all industry segments and fleet sizes. As you can probably guess from the way this post is going, the Silverado wins again.

    Here’s what they said:
    “The Silverado 1500 provides work-ready features throughout the vehicle making it ideal for varied job sites. A standard CornerStep bumper coupled with handholds built into the box rail, upper tie-down hooks, under-rail light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting and an EZ Lift and Lower tailgate also make the box more user-friendly for hauling tools and cargo.”

  4. The NHSTA Gives the Silverado a 5-Star Safety Rating
    The National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration determines the safety rating for every vehicle on the American market. The Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 both got 5-stars for safety – making them the first full-sized trucks to achieve that score since the new, rigorous requirements were implemented back in 2010. (Go General Motors!)
    Here’s something else that says the same thing with more words.

  5. Best V8 Fuel Economy In It’s Class
    The 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package, and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). With all of that, the 2WD gives you 16 MPG city/23 highway, and the 4WD gives 16 city/22 highway. That’s better than the Ford F-150’s V6 engine with EcoBoost.
    That’s what AutoBlog said.

  6. Free Maintenance
    Well since you’re already going to be saving money at the pump, save money at your Chevrolet Certified Service dealership (Jeff Gordon Chevrolet) and don’t pay for any regular maintenance for 2 years/24,000 miles (whichever comes first). That’s just a sweet deal.

So with all that being said – you shouldn’t be contemplating which truck you’re going to buy, you should be contemplating which Silverado you’re going to buy.
