If you love to take your pickup truck off the beaten path, then you’ll love this: Chevrolet has announced the refreshed 2022 Silverado will get the ZR2 treatment, which will launch this fall.
The off-road ZR2 package is currently offered on the Colorado, turning the playful midsize truck into a rugged, all-terrain machine. Chevy hasn’t said what the ZR2 package will add to the Silverado 1500, but we can use the Colorado’s own features to extrapolate.
On the Colorado, the ZR2 package adds a 2-inch lift, front and rear locking differentials, and a 3.5-inch wider track. Prototypes and leaked details for the Silverado ZR2 suggest the new truck will feature Multimatic DSSV dampers, 35-inch all-terrain tires with larger rubber than currently used by the Trail Boss model, and probably some extra convenience tech as well.
For example, the Colorado ZR2 has a standard rear vision camera, hill-start assistance, and trailer sway control. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Silverado ZR2 go down the same path.
Automakers have been raising their off-roading game in recent years and the Silverado ZR2 is just the latest addition to the growing roster of hardcore pickup trucks. When it launches, you’ll be able to get your hands on it at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick at Collierville, Tennessee!
