Taking a Closer Look at the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2

Soon (hopefully) Ohio’s winter weather will be firmly in the rearview mirror so you can focus on weekend adventures with your family! And, there’s no better truck to help you escape than the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2, a new first for the legendary Silverado lineup.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2 is engineered to be the most off-road-ready Silverado yet. And it certainly earns that reputation when you put it to the test.

“We applied what we learned in racing and Moab testing to the new ZR2 to offer a supremely capable and confidence-inspiring package, but one that doesn’t beat you up on the highway with its ride quality. It’s equally capable and comfortable,” said Dom Lester, General Motors chief engineer, Performance Variants, Parts, and Motorsports Engineering.

Off-road ready features

The 2022 Silverado 1500 ZR2 boasts off-road-ready features so you can tackle difficult terrains and explore the great outdoors with ease. Exterior elements include Multimatic DSSV™ dampers and front and rear Elockers, big underbody aluminum skid plates, and 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory® Mud Tires.

Energized performance

Under the hood of the 2022 Silverado 1500 ZR2 pumps a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain generates 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Silverado 1500 ZR2 offers a conventional trailer weight rating of 8,900 pounds.
