Since the debut of the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, GM truck fans the world-over have been clamoring for a rival and one to call their own. And rightfully so, as the Ford Raptor delivers the kind of off-road performance in a truck from the factory that many people attempt to replicate via the aftermarket, a whole lot of time and a lot of money later. Plus, the Raptor has exceeded everybody’s sales expectations, securing its future in the line of next-generation F-Series trucks that will start with the 2015 F-150.
We think it’s about time Chevrolet quit beating around the bush here.
So, to tickle your imaginations, our resident Photoshopers have crafted these images of what could be Chevy’s answer to the Raptor, which we’re calling the Silverado ZR2. We made sure to include a higher ride height, modified front and rear bumpers for better approach angles, beadlock wheels for added grip, as well as other styling cues. What do you think?
