The concept was created by American Expedition Vehicles, an upfitter best known for some badass Jeeps and Rams. AEV uses a Bison as part of its logo, lending credence to the idea that the ZR2 AEV concept was a veiled teaser. That truck was done up for overlanding and featured stuff like light bars, storage boxes, an air compressor and even a small refrigerator. We’d love to see something like this go into production.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has an image and some basic info listed on its website. It looks like the patent was filed just last week, so we don’t know how long Chevy has been working on this. We’re just hoping for the inevitable comparison with the new Ford Ranger Raptor.
