With this move, Chevrolet aims to go head to head with the Ford F-150 Tremor and Ram 1500 Rebel. Until now, the ZR2 package was available only on the mid-size Chevy Colorado

According to Car and Driver, the Silverado ZR2 model is likely to have the option of either Chevrolet’s 355-hp 5.3-liter V-8 engine or 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8, and the Duramax diesel 3.0-liter inline-six could also be available. The 10-speed automatic transmission from the standard model will likely remain unchanged.

Chevrolet’s not releasing a lot of details about the Silverado ZR2 yet, but more info is expected to be revealed this fall. 

And while an off-road package might not help you a whole lot on your construction sites, there’s no reason why your truck needs to be all work and no play.
