Bison Sold Out

Well it looks like they sold out the. Bison for 2019.

The ZR2 is selling at 10% of production or 13 to 14k units which was the GM goal. The Bison was limited to 2k units.

I expect they will add more next year if the suppliers can provide the parts. These are pure profit.

I'll assume AEV parts went to Bison production first, AEV aftermarket parts buyers will have to wait?

I'd only want the AEV skids and fender flares.

Well if a dealer has one I bet they will not deal much if orders are cut off.

Whoa! That's a big price. Given the rarity of this truck, I'm guessing you will have to pay pretty close to that if you want to drive one home.

Iím assuming they would still have to honour my preferred pricing if I were to ask for a Bison, they would probably be pissed too lol.

The dealer Fasted58 mentioned has 6 ZR2s and 3 Bisons.
The Bison are all discounted almost $7,000 below MSRP.

Don't know how they got that many and don't know why they would be giving that much of a discount on a vehicle that supposedly won't be made again for at least six months!

Here in Canada, we get ripped off for everything. We get free health care and better beer, that's about it.

This is a first I heard of limited run of Bisons. I highly doubt GM will not make more if the demand is there.

I feel the same as you. They think they have a fix, but getting it done before driving it, may not happen. I would not want to overpay $63,000 for a truck that has the wrong transmission fluid in it from the factory. I am not a fan of changing types on any fluids, once you start with one, wheteher it be oil or ATF.

In all honesty I hope you are correct. It seems some have been having good results so far but the jury is still out on the final verdict. I think time will tell. What does suck though is having the problem in the first place on a brand new vehicle. What makes it worse is the long unresolved history of the problem on a major powertrain component.

I know these things can happen, back in the mid 90's my new F-150 had issues with warping front rotors. Ford knew about this and the response was we are developing a new brake pad compound please be patient. Was not happy being told to live with it for now, concerned it may be causing wear on bearings and steering system components. In the end about 3 months later the new pads came out they installed along with new rotors and it was happy ever afterville.


I very much hope the shudder issue with the Chevy Colorado is the same happy ending. I would love to start enjoying my new truck, other than this trans issue it seems like a pretty cool vehicle.

The GM Article pretty much states that they have produced their goals for 2019. Now the dealers that have them can jack up the price as much as they want.

I found a few more Bison's online searching local dealers today.

Funny though, they were only listed as ZR2's. Searching price 'high to low' brought 'em up first. Or by photo if they had one (damn dealers using stock photos). Or by reading the window sticker options.
