It looks like everyone is after Ford Raptor. After the Ram Rebel TRX, the new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX is coming to the markets. It is another off-road version of the famous Silverado pickup. This model has been spied a couple of months ago and we saw its potential styling. Now, newly leaked information is showing us that Silverado ZRX will be an impressive pickup truck.
We’d call it an extreme off-road version and it will go on sale in late 2021. The ZRX badge was firstly used in 2003 when General Motors introduced a Sonoma ZRX model. We’ll show you what this model has to offer, based on all info we have so far.
2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Looks Impressive
The spy shots of the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX are available for a few months now. This off-road model looks impressive, even under the heavy camo. From the first look, you will think of ZRX as an aggressive full-size pickup truck. Interestingly, Silverado ZRX comes without lower fascia and it wears special exterior features. For example, new bumpers are looking bold and very unique.
Moreover, skid plates and tow hooks are brand-new as well. The impressive approaching angle will surely improve the truck’s off-road capabilities. The rear part hosts a pretty regular exhaust so it could suggest the same powertrain as in the regular Silverado model. As we can see, Silverado ZRX comes with all-terrain tires and with a higher ride height as well.430
The interior is perhaps the biggest mystery so far. Many of you would say that the interior is the least important thing on this extreme off-road pickup truck. However, we must disagree. The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX is a model that should rival the Ford F-150 Raptor version. As you probably know, Raptor offers an incredible interior with a high level of comfort and modern technology. GM is revamping most if its pickups and trucks so ZRX should arrive with the new cabin.
That means all of the updates the Silverado and Sierra will get, will become available in the Silverado ZRX model. Thanks to that, the ZRX version will wear a premium upholstery and it will offer larger displays, new infotainment system and much more. Of course, safety is one of the most important issues in the off-roading models.
2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Engine Options
The goal is to rival Ford Raptor with 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, so Chevrolet needs to do better than that. New 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX could stick to its 6.2-liter V8 that generates 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. However, these figures are lower than the Raptor. Moreover, this 6.2-liter is too large for an off-road pickup and 5.3-liter V8 that is standard provides “only” 355 hp.
A 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel could be the answer but there is another problem. Ram Rebel TRX is another rival that comes with astonishing 707 horsepower thanks to its iconic Hellcat engine. General Motors has some very powerful engines in the lineup so higher output could be the answer.
2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Price and Release Date
The fire-breathing 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will go on sale by the end of 2021. It is the extreme off-road version of the new Chevy Silverado 1500 truck so expect astonishing performances. We are still waiting for more official details but the price should start at about $50,000. Currently, Silverado 1500 Trail Boss is the best off-road pickup in the GM’s lineup. That is about to change.
