In recent years, off-road packages have become popular. Therefore, automakers are looking to offer various off-road kits. Now, Chevrolet decided to offer one such package, however, this time the package is available on the heavy-duty truck. New 2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 will try to dominate the segment in years to come.
It is a famous off-road version, available on Colorado pickup as well. From what we know, the new Silverado HD ZR2 will receive lots of new stuff. While the Ford Super Duty Tremor is very affordable, Ram Power Wagon seems to be the most likely rival.
Visually, all Silverado HD models will get a nice facelift. The upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 will gain the same improvements. Therefore, we expect to see a front fascia with a new grille and new headlights. One teaser image shows a unique Flowtie emblem. Naturally, this off-road version will provide more ground clearance, different bumpers, red tow hooks, skid plates, and more.
Generally, the ZR2 variant is more aggressive. The Colorado ZR2 model comes with 31-inch Goodyear off-road tires. However, Silverado HD ZR2 will wear 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler tires. To compare, Ford Super Duty Tremor has 35-inch Goodyear tires, while Ram Power Wagon offers smaller 33-inch Goodyear tires.
Interior upgrades over the non-ZR2 model include a more modern dashboard and higher-quality materials. It also has a huge 13.4-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument panel. The spacious interior features leather-trimmed seats and dark accents. It’s important to note that the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 only comes in crew-cab body style, which provides excellent comfort.
Unlike the base trim level, this one comes with more standard features, especially additional driver-assistance aids. Therefore, the ZR2 model will offer systems such as forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning.
Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 Engine Specs
The all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 will most likely offer two familiar engine options. Of course, we are talking about standard 6.6-liter V8 gasoline and optional Duramax diesel V8 engines. While this is not official, it is hard to find other possible candidates for this truck. The base V8 provides 400 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the optional diesel develops 470 hp and a torque of 975 lb-ft. Ford also offers gasoline and diesel engine.
However, Ram Power Wagon will have a gas engine exclusively. This model will have impressive mechanics. While we are waiting to hear more about transmission, we know that the selectable electronic locking rear differential will be available. Furthermore, Chevrolet will deliver a limited-slip front differential.
2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2 Price and Release Date
