General Motors appears to have left us an Easter Egg in a recent video in the form of a peculiar 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. As with the video demonstrating an engine testing on the tilt sled, which featured the upcoming twin-turbo 3.6L “LF3” V6 engine, we believe that this video of the Silverado shows what could be Chevy’s answer to Ford SVT Raptor in the opening scene.
It’s brief, and it’s right at the beginning, but we don’t remember Chevrolet mentioning anything about beadlock wheels for the 2014 Silverado when it launches this spring, probably because they weren’t ready to talk about what’s beyond the Z71 package. But if our USPTO discoveries are any indicator, we may be gazing at early testing footage of an upcoming ZR2 variant — a surefire Raptor fighter.
We posted the video late last week, but as a refresher, here it is again. Look closely in the opening seconds. Beadlocks, baby. Beadlocks.
