Exploring the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Trim


Chevy’s first-ever Silverado ZR2 trim has dropped and is taking off-road capability to the next level. This trim level is designed for more extreme off-roading and outdoor adventures with ZR2-exclusive performance packages and an unmistakable design. With the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 now available at Jack Carter Chevrolet, we thought it would be a good idea to give you a breakdown of this impressive version of the acclaimed full-size pickup truck.

What to Expect from the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2

The ZR2 trim isn’t just off-road-focused; its chassis and exterior augmentations are built for the most extreme off-road circumstances and even crisis situations. A 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine sits under the hood packing 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque while an Electronic Transmission Range Selector partners with its 10-speed automatic transmission. The ZR2 also uses a 2-speed transfer case enhanced with an automatic Terrain Mode function and sports larger underbody aluminium skid plates for extra protection from unforgiving terrain. If you’re looking for muscle, the Silverado ZR2 can also haul up to 8,900 lbs (4036.9 kg).


The ZR2 trim of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado instantly takes command of the road and trails with its aggressive stance and trim-exclusive characteristics.
