Chevrolet today confirmed the future expansion of the brand’s popular ZR2 trim to the Silverado. The ZR2 trim relaunched on the Colorado mid-size pickup in 2017, and since then, ZR2 has signified high-performance capability in a wide variety of drive settings – both on- and off-road.
The Silverado ZR2 is a much needed addition to the Chevy lineup. With Ford and Ram pushing extremely hard in the off-road purpose built truck segment, Chevy was lacking the right vehicle.
From the video we can see that there isn’t much that would compete with the TRX or the Raptor lineup. The tire size shown is only a 33-inch tire which is small compared to the factory optioned 37-inch tires on both the new Raptor and Bronco.
We will need to wait until the fall to see exactly what is up Chevrolet’s sleeve for the Silverado ZR2, but hope that it is something competitive to the TRX and Raptor.
