With the recent debut of the Ram Rebel TRX and rumors abound that Ford is working on a supercharged V8-powered Ford F-150 Raptor of its own, there’s no doubt that one of the most highly anticipated products in GM’s pipeline is the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado ZRX. The performance pickup is rumored to feature the automaker’s supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine, beefed-up suspension and other goodies intended to attract off-road enthusiasts and outgun its rivals at FCA and Ford.
The arrival of the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX is still quite far away, unfortunately, so for now, we have to rely on amateur rendering artists if we want an idea of how this exciting new truck will look. Rendering artists Oscar V recently tried his hand at designing a Chevrolet Silverado-based rival to the Ram Rebel TRX and F-150 Raptor – though instead of using the ZRX branding, he went with his own made-up ‘Meteor’ name.
While the branding is a bit off, the idea is the same. Like the Ram Rebel TRX or the upcoming Silverdo ZRX, this fictional truck features raised suspension, large knobby off-road tires, bead lock wheels and a redesigned lower front fascia with an integrated skid plate for additional ground clearance. This truck also features a redesigned front grille and a scooped hood that look as though they were designed to feed more cool air into the engine bay to cool the LT4 V8. Completing this package is a rear sport bar, side steps and a roof-mounted light bar.
While the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX will probably look quite a bit different than this rendering, it still gives us a good idea of what this latest generation of Chevrolet Silverado looks like when given the off-road treatment. The real Chevrolet Silverado ZRX will likely arrive as a 2022 model year vehicle so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Silverado ZRX news, Chevrolet Silverado news, Chevrolet news and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
