This is the very first time that the Silverado 1500 has been offered in an off-road performance-focused ZR2 format, and it comes with an exciting package of exterior and chassis enhancements to the regular model, such as Multimatic DSSV shock absorbers for increased off-road performance and capability. The ZR2 isn’t just about navigating off-road obstacles, however, as it’s also designed, so you’ll be extremely comfortable while powering through those extreme terrains thanks to a fabulous interior that has been designed exclusively for the ZR2.
At the heart of the all-new Silverado 1500 ZR2 is an awesome 6.2-litre V-8 engine that puts a massive 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque at this mighty new truck’s disposal. All that power is sent exclusively to all four wheels of the ZR2 through a 10-speed automatic transmission, and the four-wheel-drive system features a two-speed transfer case and electronic-locking front and rear differentials. This is a half-ton truck that takes its adventurer credentials very seriously indeed.
When equipped with a conventional trailer hitch, the all-new ZR2 version of the 2022 Silverado 1500 is rated to tow up to 8,900 pounds (4,037kg), and it can handle a maximum payload of up to 1,440 pounds (653kg), but that’s not where this truck’s real strengths really lie.
There are plenty of trucks around that look the part and give the impression that they’re serious, hardcore off-roaders, but this all-new Silverado 1500 ZR2 walks to walk every bit as well as it talks the talk. It’s easy to jack a truck up and add a few bits to make it looks the part, but the list of features the ZR2 comes with tells you this is a truck that more than looks the part. The ZR2 boasts an all-new, high-approach front bumper that enables an improved 31-degree approach angle, and it rides on a set of 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires.
Other practical off-road enhancements include the Silverado’s first application of Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers; new steel front and rear bumpers designed for off-road strength, durability, and clearance; unique skid plates to protect the ZR2 whether desert running or rock crawling; hidden dual-outlet exhausts for a better departure angle; and an enhanced 2-speed transfer case with Terrain Mode.
There’s no getting away from the rough, tough, and rugged exterior of the 2022 Silverado 1500 ZR2 and its razor-sharp focus on off-road styling and capability, but the interior is anything but hardcore in any way. Once you’re inside the truck you’ll marvel at the luxury of the leather-trimmed seats, sporty dark trim, and the amount of space there is courtesy of the expansive crew-cab body style.
The interior is at least as technologically advanced as the exterior with a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument panel on the dash that sits next to a massive 13.4-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system that boasts wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2 is could well be the ultimate half-ton truck for today’s demanding buyers and the only vehicle you’ll ever need.
