But, the soon camo is going to fall off and we will know more details about the truck. Of course, this is the response and a rival to Ford Raptor and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro.

2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Specs and Engine
We could hear from some rumors that Chevrolet is preparing a real beast for off-road adventures. Having in mind that Ford Raptor is one of the most powerful full-size trucks out there, GM decided to respond with the even higher output. Corvette’s supercharged powertrain could take place in the engine room. If that happens, the 2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will return at least 600 hp. However, some configurations can make even more energy. With hints about the Ram Rebel TRX with 707 hp on the way, we won’t be surprised to see even more powerful Silverado ZR2.
2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 vs Ford Raptor
Chevrolet and Ford are archrivals. They are competing for each other not only in the truck segment. But, for this class, their rivalry is getting a new proportion when the 2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 hits the market. At this point, the supremacy of the Ford Raptor was never in doubt. On the other hand, Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 was one of the best mid-size pickups for an off-road ride. By adding Ranger Raptor, Ford stepped into a territory of its opponent. Now, the GM strikes back. Fans and drivers can just lay back and enjoy these two companies competing for each other. The battle will make both of them improve their products and possibly reduce the price.

The updated Silverado was spotted recently. With the next-gen model already debuted, it doesn’t take too much to figure out GM’s intentions. The new model will come as a part of the first update and it will be 2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2. Well, besides the existence, spy photos are not unveiling too much besides that. We can see heavy camo all around the vehicle, hiding everything. Besides visual updates, the ZR2 will also bring a new mechanical setup, with unique suspension, shocks, and brakes.
2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Release Date
With the new 2019 Silverado already out, we can just wait to see when it will get a performance-tuned version. It is probably happening early in 2019 since the test mule seems to be in the final phases of development. Well, cosmetic updates are not too complicated to improve, if the mechanic stuff works as engineers wish.
The price of the 2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will depend on its drivetrain. The supercharged unit could easily double the starting cost of the regular truck. Ford Raptor, for example, starts at $50k. But, with 200 and more horses above it, for $10,000 difference is a great addition.
