The Colorado ZR2 Bison (Chevrolet)

Multimatic, a pioneer in suspension technology since 1984, has been pushing boundaries with their Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) dampers.

Dominating Formula 1 and other racing series, their technology has now been integrated into production cars like the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison.

This off-road powerhouse boasts impressive specs, including 12.2 inches of ground clearance, 35-inch tires, and Multimatic’s advanced DSSV dampers, making it the most capable truck in its class.

The DSSV dampers operate similarly to those in sports cars, with spring-loaded spool valves and adjustable orifices controlling hydraulic fluid flow.

However, Multimatic made significant tweaks for off-road use, including a custom hydraulic bump stop exclusive to the Bison model. This innovative “Jounce Control” technology absorbs more and dispels less, providing unparalleled control and comfort.

The Colorado ZR2 Bison’s suspension is designed to withstand aggressive off-roading while maintaining on-road handling and comfort.

Multimatic’s goals included minimizing body motion, reducing wheel travel, reducing peak tire and frame loads, and increasing energy dissipation.

The result is a truck that effortlessly soaks up bumps and rocks, making it the ultimate off-road vehicle. With its advanced suspension technology and impressive specs, the Colorado ZR2 Bison is a force to be reckoned with in the off-road world.
