Chevrolet Will Build Its Own Off-Road Champion Pickup By 2022

ZR2 Miami Lakes Automall

We have learned the Chevrolet brand is going to build its own off-road champion. The Chevy brand might be the last to the table for customers when offering a vehicle that rivals the Ford F-150 Raptor or the Ram Rebel TRX, but in a matter of time, customers will only care about which vehicle provides the most excitement for their money. The Chevrolet brand is going to ensure customers are fully satisfied with its pickup lineup. Allow us to inform and drive some interest in what to expect with the newest reports about what the Chevrolet brain trust has in store for customers. 

No One Builds High-Level Engineering Like Chevrolet

The Silverado light and heavy-duty variety are only missing one vehicle compared to other brands, but not for long. The introduction of the Silverado ZR2 will be a welcomed sight. We first saw a glimpse of what the Silverado ZR2 could look like when a Silverado race truck was shown off last year at the SEMA show in 2019. With many shoppers clamoring for a vehicle that pushes the boundaries of speed and power in a pickup, Chevrolet is looking for a vehicle that provides that in spades. The new rumors and reports leaking about this vehicle have us wondering what the final product will look like, but so far a lot has come out about what might happen between now and 2022.

What the Reports Say About the Silverado ZR2

The folks at Muscle Cars and Trucks have unnamed sources, but have revealed the plans that are launched for Chevrolet include a new ZR2 version of the Chevrolet Silverado is a plan that is underway. The performance of the off-road truck segment is most important and General Motors is going to ensure they offer buyers a vehicle unlike any of the products that competitors present. To build this vehicle, Chevrolet and General Motors are likely to keep everything underwraps for now. The focus will be less on the engine and horsepower, which is rumored to be kept with its existing 6.2-Liter naturally-aspirated L87 V8 engine. This is the powertrain that offers 420 horsepower, so it will not lack sufficient power or strength for owners.

Upgrades and Expected Launch Date

The enhancements will be added to protecting the engine and vehicle as a whole for off-road travel. The addition of skid plates and off-road tires are expected, but the “next evolution of the DSSV off-road damper” is something to look forward to. The Silverado ZR2 is going to arrive by 2022, according to the report. This would mean the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 will be part of the 2023 model year. This is going to be a pickup that is like the larger version of the Chevrolet Colorado. Early mentions regarding the price for the pickup to be kept somewhat lower than $60,000 MSRP; far less expensive than the Ram Rebel TRX. Looking for new options from Chevy?

Chevrolet Is Developing A New EV Pickup Truck

GM has unveiled its future electric vehicle plans in its 10th sustainability report, and one of the most striking projects is Chevrolet’s BET Truck. This will be Chevy’s first full-size electric pickup truck and General Motors has listed its electric-mile range to surpass 400 miles. Unfortunately, that’s all General Motors has revealed about its plans. Some have speculated that the Silverado has the chance to be the first pickup that gains the electric capacity or a brand new model. Not that the Silverado needs any more support to surpass the competition. The lofty goals are taken very seriously by GM, as even the president of GM, Mark Reuss has revealed he drives a Chevrolet Bolt to commute to work. When looking into the plans for Chevrolet, the goal is determined straight from the top. 

Chevrolet Investments Are Set

The early reports had Chevrolet introducing the new EV pickup truck by 2021, but this might be pushed back since the global Coronavirus pandemic has continued longer than expected. General Motors has actually proposed 20 electric vehicles will be produced and on the road by 2023. The pledge by GM included nearly an entire lineup of EVs by 2030. The $2.2 billion investment will see GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant turning into the first assembly plant solely focused on EVs. Chevrolet will also make new EV vehicles and keep some of the gasoline models for the near future, but across the board, this won’t be the case for long. While there hasn’t been an electric vehicle made since the Bolt in 2016, this upcoming decade will see the production of EVs starting with this new pickup EV. The growth of EV will take place globally for GM by 2040. Another goal is ensuring the recycling of 100 percent of end-of-life EV batteries.

General Motors Leads the EV Way

The goal for Chevrolet is not only to add its first-ever electric pickup, but to add a mid-sized electric SUV and a possibly a new look to the Chevrolet Bolt, converting the famed electric car into an SUV or crossover design. General Motors will also work to add three-row luxury electric SUVs. Through their GMC and Cadillac brands, expect GM to add other EV models, including an electric Hummer, but the large focus remains on the Chevrolet brand to lead the way for GM.

“The past several months have been difficult and our world has changed. As we move through the world in a new way, GM is as determined as ever to create solutions that lead to a better future for all. GM remains focused on delivering on our vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions, and zero congestion while becoming the most inclusive company in the world,” -CEO Mary Barra

The Previous Generation Silverado Is Sticking Around

For those who have not yet test-driven the previous-generation Chevrolet Silverado, they will have more time to decide on getting one. Chevrolet will remain making the prior generation pickup throughout the 2019 calendar year. The stock of previous generation Chevy pickups will continue to be produced alongside the brand new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado that is now available for purchase. So what are the reasons behind having both and what are the differences? Let’s start by breaking down the plans for the older-generation Chevrolet Silverado.

Plans For the Previous Generation Silverado

Automotive News reports that Chevrolet will produce the older truck, named internally as the K2, and then they will phase out the truck gradually over 2019. Chevrolet CFO Dhivya Suryadevara informed Automotive News that crew cab models will be the first to end its production, succeeded by the double cab models and then eventually the regular cab versions in the second half of 2019.

The new generation Silverado crew cab models, which started assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana earlier in 2018, and the double cab models began production in October 2018. A Chevrolet production plant in Silao, Mexico, will be ready to produce pickups by January and will launch production of the regular cab models simultaneously with crew cabs.

General Motor’s Oshawa, Ontario plant in Canada creates the T1 double cab bodies and then exports them to Fort Wayne to finalize and complete the pickup’s assembly. This process is known by those in the company as the “Oshawa shuttle,” the method decreased how long the process takes, giving General Motors the ability to make a target number of trucks required to support a new vehicle launch and provide dealerships all over a chance to be stocked properly with the Silverado.

Why Make Them Both Together?

While the previous edition of the Silverado will be sold side-by-side by the latest and greatest Chevrolet Silverado, this doesn’t mean that the new generation Silverado isn’t that spectacular (it is) or that the previous generation pickup didn’t sell well (it has) as they both have their fans. The General Motors approach is similar to what Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is doing with their single cab version of the Ram 1500, selling both the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 with their retitled 2018 Ram 1500 as an ever-so-slightly refreshed 2019 Ram 1500 “Classic”.

While General Motors does not provide their sales numbers monthly, a quarterly report will have to do to showcase how great a decision this move is later on. How will the Silverado fair? Time will tell, but having choices is always a plus for consumers. However, the difference between both generations shows that the latest Silverado is definitely superior to the prior generation.

The Difference Between The Newest Silverado and Previous Silverado

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is way more convincing and capable than the previous Silverado. New components and a new frame go along with a redesigned interior. The new 2019 Chevy Silverado carries multiple powertrains that have improved their fuel economy from the previous model year. A 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed automatic and 6.2-Liter V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission both allow more than a 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, hitting 17 mpg and an improved 23 highway mpg. Silverados with the four-wheel drive and a 6.2-Liter V8 engine gain a fuel economy rating of 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

Two more powertrain options are set to arrive before long, the 2.7-Liter Turbo and Duramax 3.0-Liter Turbo-Diesel engine, but the fuel efficiency has not been announced yet. The maximum towing capacity has improved by 500 pounds to 12,200 pounds when powered by the 6.2-liter V8 with av available Max Trailering Package, and there’s also an increase in payload capacity up by 14 percent. Not to mention, the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado starts at just $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). The 2019 Silverado production is set to expand and include the powerful Duramax 3.0-Liter inline-six turbo diesel LM2 engine by early 2019.
