The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will be available in the market sometime next year. This iteration, also known as “The Reaper,” is an off-road version of the classic Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The spy shots are here, so we can get a sense of how the new model could look. The ZRX edition, in addition to its attractive appearance and excellent off-road capabilities, comes with a powerful engine as well.
According to recent news, Chevrolet will use a familiar 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of producing about 450 horsepower. This is also less than competitors such as the Ram Rebel TRX and Ford F-150 Raptor R. We don’t expect Chevrolet to impress us with a new engine, but this engine can gain more power in 2022, which should be the main upgrade.
2022 Silverado ZRX Spy Photos
The first spy photos of the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX are now available. The pictures display a rather spectacular exterior design as well as a couple of novelties. This off-road variant seems to be more than ready to tackle the toughest terrains. Chevy is known for its provocative styling, and the ZRX design is no exception. Its styling is a natural blend of aggressive bodywork and a sporty personality.
Unlike the standard Silverado truck, the ZRX edition will have a new and more aggressive bumper. Both ends seem to be one-of-a-kind. While the back appears to be traditional, we believe the front fascia is innovative and modern. Finally, a traditional exhaust configuration strongly suggests the previously stated V8 powertrain.
The upcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will appear modern and upright on the inside. However, we have no idea what the interior would look like. Chevy is well-known for producing upscale cabins with a plethora of amenities and standard features. Still, the greatest puzzle at the moment is the interior design. Cabin details are not on the spy photos, unfortunately.
The ZRX variant will surely gain a couple of novelties. While the most recent driver-assistance technology is certain to be on offer, we don’t know what will happen with touchscreen options. To tackle Ram and Ford, the new ZRX truck will need several upgrades. Whatever the case may be, the Ford F-150 Raptor is recognised for its stunning cabin, which is both modern and spacious.
Re-Tuned V8 Engine Specs
Under the hood, new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will offer a potent 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine. Still, this engine is not capable enough to compete with rivals such as Ford Raptor and Ram Rebel TRX. The V8 engine will produce around 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
Reportedly, Chevy will re-tune the engine so we should be seeing even more power. This powertrain will also feature Dynamic Fuel Management and a 10-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, Ram Rebel TRX will develop over 700 horsepower and even the brand-new Ford Raptor R will provide similar figures.
2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Release Date, Price
The price of the all-new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will cost slightly above $50,000. This is not official, but this price makes perfect sense in our honest opinion. The sales will begin later in the year, probably this November.
