Chevy Unleashes Its First-Ever Flagship Off-Road Pickup With The Silverado ZR2

Sep 13, 2021

Category: Rides

Over the last half-decade alone, the super truck segment has absolutely exploded in popularity, prompting an ever-growing number of manufacturers to debut turn-key, lifted, high-performance off-roaders available straight off the showroom floor. And after previously unveiling its ZR2-spec Colorado in 2017, Chevrolet has now revealed that it will be bestowing the same rugged treatment upon its best-selling pickup, resulting in the first-ever Silverado ZR2.

Powered by a 6.2L V8 that puts down 420hp and 460ft-lbs of torque, the inaugural Silverado ZR2 boasts a ten-speed transmission with an electronic range selector and an upgraded two-speed transfer case with a Terrain Mode. The ZR2-spec Silverado also gets the same Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers as the Colorado ZR2, plus features a skid plate setup, ZR2-exclusive wheel arches, and a set of custom wheels shod in 33″ Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires. New off-road-style steel bumpers fore and aft, a factory lift kit, and a hidden dual-outlet exhaust collectively afford the Silverado with some impressive climbing and crawling capabilities in the form of 11.2″ of ground clearance, 31.8-degrees of approach angle, a 23.4-degree break-over, and a 23.3-degree departure angle. Chevy has yet to reveal official pricing for the 2022 Silverado ZR2, though the model is slated to hit dealerships in the coming year.
