El Burro: The Overland Bug

You may not have noticed, but we have an affinity for older vehicles here at Expedition Portal. We love their simplicity, classic styling, and durable materials, but not nearly as much as we love their personalities. Each one has stories to tell, earned scars, and a character as unique as the people that own them….

The First Chevrolet AEV Bison Off-Road Test

Just over a year ago, Chevrolet unveiled a stunning concept truck known as the Colorado Bison.

With everyone jumping on this bandwagon, it’s easy to understand why auto-manufacturers are engaging with the overland market at an…

Chevy’s New ZR2 Bison Just Changed the Game

Just over a year ago Chevrolet unveiled the ZR2, a high-clearance, high-performance, off-road version of their already capable Colorado. (You can read about it here.)

The Modern Explorer: Land Rover LR4 – Part III

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in Overland Journal, Winter 2014.
