I wonder if it comes with the little duramax?
Thanks! I am on super slow cell phone internet.Yes it does, options are the baby Duramax or the 3.6 liter,V-6. Car and Driver has an article on it. Close to $ 44,000 for the high option model....
Ok here is the link.
Wait a min. You think $44,000 is high for a new truck esp. for a high option model? Discounts, rebates, and other H.S. that surrounds a buying new vehicle can drop $10G off the inflated suggested sticker. Comparing to any pickup let alone a diesel 4x4 it's in the ball park. New 3/4 or 1 tons are near $70K.Yes it does, options are the baby Duramax or the 3.6 liter,V-6. Car and Driver has an article on it. Close to $ 44,000 for the high option model....

Yea, I think $44,000 is a lot of money for a Chevy Colorado truck, I doubt their going to slash $10,000 off of the Bison ZR2. It seems they cut a bunch off of the 1/2 ton trucks late in the year. I agree $44,000 is way cheaper than $70,000 and if a man can do without a big 2500HD then I suppose the Colorado or a 1/2 ton would be the route to go. Heck in a few more years the 2500HD and 3500HD trucks will be close to $100,000 dollars.Wait a min. You think $44,000 is high for a new truck esp. for a high option model?

To bad it's not 1992 where a reg cab 4x4 3/4 ton 6.5TD was $14,000.00 sticker
Yelp I agree the S-10 was a great little truck, I have driven three different ones over the years, a 1984 2 wheel drive, a 1987 4x4 and my dad gave me a 2002 extended cab S-10 4x4, 4.3 Liter V-6, back last October. It has 138,000 miles or so on it right now and its my daily driver and winter vehicle. It does not appear to burn any oil, yet it might leak some, I can add oil as needed. The S-10's go real good off road and will do just fine in the snow with the right tires of course. At first the fuel mileage around here sucked it was around 13.8 MPG, but after some work and freeing up a sticky brake caliper, the mileage is from 14 to 15MPG around my house. I did see 16.8 MPG going through the country the other day on a longer trip. I do believe if I was to get out on the interstate on a trip it could top 18 to 19 MPG.People take more expensive custom rigs off road... At least they are worth taking off road.
Really GM should have brought it back as a S-10 size pickup. The midsize pickup isn't much smaller than a full size 1/2t and clearly isn't priced much better. IMO why buy a slightly smaller pickup esp. given GM's horrible history, aka send em into Bankruptcy, corner cutting for the 'smaller' S-10/S-15's.
GM should bring back off road with a "Hummer" name. GM had a real serious Jeep contender esp. with the H3. Jeeps sell well. This is just another "afterthought" wannabe 4x4 that pales in comparison to a H3T let alone Ford's Raptor. Really GM, why bother with another half-assed attempt? GM's learned nothing from the half-assed attempt of the Trailblazer SS shop queens getting STOMPED by the Jeep SRT8's especially with the hand grenade transmission and the front sump oil pickup in the LS2. Starve the engine bearings with a good track launch and pray the transmission doesn't explode.
Street cred for the ZR2 Bison can't even be bought at the carwash where they apply mud to make it look like you went off road with it. Because someone with a Jeep or Raptor will park next to it and rightfully embarrass the owner.
GM: because half-assed wannabe is what we do.
