2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2

2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Details

The 2022 ZR2 has just entered the ring, and it is bringing some serious heat to the mid-sized pickup market. If you were fond of the beefy Trail Boss line, the new Silverado ZR2 is going to stir some feelings in you that may require some serious trail time. Let’s dig in.

The ZR2 Has A Top-Shelf Powerplant & The Bones To Put It To Work

The heart of this beast is the 6.2 liter EcoTec3 V8, putting its 420 HP to work through the silky-smooth 10-speed transmission. Letting it breathe is a performance exhaust that’s tucked up out of the way, so you don’t have to worry about scraping or grinding. Getting the Silverado ZR2 down the road as well as over any rocks is a significant 460 ft-lb, which puts the massive 33-inch rubber to work.

Keeping those tires where they need to be are upgraded versions of the spool-valve Multimatic shocks that gave the Colorado ZR2 its ride. Not only are the 40mm Multimatic shocks equipped with spool-valve dampers, but there are also three separate chambers for each shock, with the entire setup being tuned for off-road and multi-terrain use. When the wheels need to flex, the ZR2 gives you a full 9.8” up front, and 10.6” in the rear, with bump stops included in case you end that wheel travel a little abruptly.

This Wanderer Was Made For Rough Rides

The entire chassis, as well as the new Terrain Mode selection, has been configured to get you off the beaten path without leaving you high and dry. The ZR2 trim also includes skid plates and a front bumper with an exceptionally high approach angle, allowing you to get her into, and out of, some significant cuts and crevices. While in Terrain Mode, you won’t need to ride the two-shoe express, as soon as you let off the gas the ZR2 will automatically engage the breaks so that you don’t lose ground.

It comes with lockable differentials that give you a better than 40:1 crawl when you’re on the rocks, as well as a host of camera tech that keeps you aware of your clearances. The Silverado ZR2 even has automatic hill descent abilities that manage the brakes for you in 1MPH increments, right from the cruise control interface. Take her to Moab, take her to The Cliffs, take her anywhere, she’ll eat it up and ask for seconds.

A Cabin Made For A Captain

The draw of the ZR2 trim isn’t just in the performance and terrain adaptations, the interior is stat-of-the-art and gorgeous as well. The gigantic 13.4” HD touchscreen and 12.3” customizable dash cluster are specifically designed to give you every piece of information you need at a moment’s notice while being centered around the driver’s ergonomics.

On top of all that, the leather interior provides ultimate comfort as well as a stately and sleek appearance. The specially-designed ZR2 sport seats keep you where you need to be, even when the track tries to bounce you into the back seat.

Ready To Hit The Trails?

The Silverado ZR2 is in ultra-high demand, and given the feature set, it’s no wonder. If you’re interested in grabbing one, the base ZR2 trim starts at just under $70k, but for one of the most robust all-terrain trims out there, it’s worth more than a look. We'll be developing front & rear bumpers for this model once it's been released into the wild! Stay Tuned!
