The 2022 Silverado ZR2 Is Exactly What Chevy Needs
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. The Silverado ZR2's design and overall styling isn’t as aggressive as the Raptor or TRX, but the blacked out front end with the refreshed LEDs looks a whole lot better than the outgoing version, more on this in the video.
I like that the tow hooks are red, it gives the face a splash of contrast color in all that black. 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 Chevrolet Silverado 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.
The big changes happen on the inside and this is one point we’re going to dive deeper in in the video.
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.
