Ford F-150 TREMOR vs Chevy Silverado ZR2 - This Is the One I Buy and Why
The brand new 2022 Silverado ZR2 is finally revealed and it comes with a 420-hp, 460 lb-ft of torque 6.2-liter V-8, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory off-road tires, and upgraded dampers.
It now also has a front electronic locking differential in addition to the rear locker. Above those and the skid plate you have a high-mounted steel front bumper which adds to the off-road look of the truck but also helps to achieve the 31.8-degree approach angle.
That’s more than you get with any other Silverado including those fitted with the Z71 or Trail Boss Off-Road packages with their standard 2.0-inch lifted suspension. In fact, the ZR2 is half-inch taller than a Trail Boss and is only available as a crew-cab with either the short- or standard-length beds.
The new ZR2 features a new black hood insert and graphics, a new grille design with integrated daytime running lights, a bunch of ZR2 badges, and 18-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch tires. On the inside, you now have a 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster alongside a beautiful 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
There’s no info on pricing yet for the 2022 Silverado ZR2 but expect it to be close to the current top-of-the-line High Country, which starts around $55,000. The ZR2 is expected to go on sale in the spring of 2022.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor is powered by Ford's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 and puts out 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque paired with a 10-speed automatic. It’s the only engine option for the Tremor and it’s also only available with a 5.5-foot bed.
It only comes with a rear locking diff and not a front, like you get in the ZR2. There are three levels of the 2021 F-150 Tremor and if you want the new 12.0-inch touchscreen and 12.0-inch gauge cluster you’re gonna have to go with one of the two top levels where you get those as standard.
The Tremor is lifted an inch in the front and an inch and a half in the rear thanks to a new suspension and shocks. The wheels are 18-inches in a matte finish and just like on the ZR2 you have 33-inch tires here as well but Ford decided to go with General Grabber all-terrain tires for the Tremor.
The front end of the Tremor is beefier than on your normal F-150 and you also have these beautiful orange details and graphics both on the exterior and interior.
Pricing starts around $51,000 for the base level Tremor.
