2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Performance Pickup Is the Real Raptor Fighter

The all-new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX is the high-performance off-road variant of the popular Silverado 1500 pickup truck. Unlike the regular Silverado, the upcoming ZRX will be filled with many features. Basically, it offers more equipment than the popular Trail Boss version, on which it is based. It comes with aggressive bodywork, robust suspension, a new chassis control system, and a more powerful engine.

The standard model is available with a 6.2 liter V8 EcoTec3 engine that makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, one can get a turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six Duramax engine that generates 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

General Motors is working on a much better off-road version of their Chevy Silverado 1500 truck. The GM recently states that the new model will feature many modifications compared to the regular truck. We have some exclusive photos and the new truck promises.

First of all, unlike the regular Silverado, the new ZRX features a more aggressive body, robust suspension, and unique chassis control systems. It’s also possible that it will use the latest version of the off-road shocks from Fox or another high-performance suspension that should be exclusively modified for ZRX.

Cabin Layout

The cabin of 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX will be premium with many sporty stances. Also, sources tell us that ZRX should feature the same layout treatment as the regular 1500 Silverado. Depending on the body style, the Silverado 1500 offers seats either for three, five, or six occupants. However, best of all, it will most likely borrow plenty of technology from the 1500 model.

That means we can expect a large touchscreen with standard Bluetooth audio streaming and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Like the Silverado 1500 top trims, the ZRX will come with a latest automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and front/rear park assist.

2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX Engine Options

Under the hood, the new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZRX high-performance pickup truck uses a 6.2-liter V8 naturally-aspirated EcoTec3 engine that can generate 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Besides this engine, Chevy also offers an optional turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six Duramax engine that makes 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

Interestingly, from what we heard, there is a possibility that supercharged 6.2L V8 could be offered as well. If that happens, expect at least 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. No matter which engine is chosen, the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission is available as the only option.
