2022 Silverado ZR2 Price Finally Revealed: Video74
One of the biggest headlines surrounding the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is the arrival of the Chevy Silverado ZR2 as the most off-road-capable version of the Silverado from the factory. Though we already know a lot about the ZR2, there’s one big piece of info that we didn’t know: how much it will cost. Luckily, GM Authority has finally learned the Silverado ZR2 price.
According to sources familiar with the matter, the 2022 Silverado ZR2 will start at $65,100. That amount does not the include the destination freight charge (DFC) of $1,695 USD. The combined amount is $66,795 USD.
The 2022 Silverado ZR2 starting price of $66,795 puts the Silverado ZR2 in the pricing category of the Ford F-150 Raptor, which starts at $64,145 plus $1,695 DFC for a $65,840 starting price tag. In other words, the 2022 Silverado ZR2 price will be $955 higher than the 2021 F-150 Raptor, despite the Ford having 30 more horsepower and 50 more pound-feet from its twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.
For the sake of context, the Ram TRX starts at $72,120 ($70,425 plus $1,695 DFC). It features a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine good for 702 horses and 650 pound-feet of torque.
For even more context, the 2022 Silverado LT Trail Boss Limited (this is the stop-gap pre-refresh model) with the 5.3L L84 (355 horses, 383 pound-feet of torque) starts at $53,145 ($51,450 MSRP plus $1,695 DFC), while the same truck with the 6.2L L87 motor (420 horses, 460 pound-feet) – the same engine that will be used in the Silverado ZR2, starts at $55,640 ($53,945 plus $1,695 DFC).
It’s worth mentioning that Ford will introduce the Ford F-150 Raptor R next year as an even more powerful version of the F-150 Raptor, and a direct rival to the Ram TRX. The F-150 Raptor R will be powered by the same supercharged 5.2L Predator V8 as the 2020 and newer Mustang GT500 making an expected 750 horsepower.
That will fully enable the Raptor R to slot above the “regular” F-150 Raptor, which is powered by the high-output version of the twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 rated at 450 horsepower (and 510 pound-feet of torque). The impressive power will be reflected in the Raptor R’s pricing, estimated by GMA sister publication, Ford Authority, to start around around $75,000.
As a reminder, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 is equipped with advanced Multimatic DSSV dampers and retuned springs to deliver improved front and rear suspension travel. The truck, which represents the flagship off-road Silverado, features front and rear e-lockers for enhanced traction, while the high-approach steel front bumper gets removable end caps. The corners get 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires, while underbody skid plates protect the mechanicals, while the dual exhaust was relocated in front of the rear bumper.
All that translates to 11.2. inches of ground clearance, a 31.8 degree approach angle, 23.4 degree breakover angle, and 23.3 degree departure angle.
The only powerplant offered is GM’s naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, connecting to a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD.
One final note: in late November, GM Authority outlined Chevy’s internal timeline for the refreshed 2022 Silverado launch schedule. One of the key dates of the launch was today, December 15th, which is when the online configurator would launch for the updated model. We provided the dates with the notice that they may change, and change they did. As of this writing, Chevy has yet to launch the Build & Price tool for the refreshed Silverado. It’s currently unclear when this will take place. Stay tuned, since we’ll be back with more very soon. In the meantime, subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevy Silverado news, Chevy news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

Ouch…that’s a little steep.
Grill is ugly, needs a bigger screen like RAM! Get rid of the doo-dad garbage on top of hood, looks tacky.
I respectfully disagree. The grill takes styling ques from the Camaro SS and ZL1. I think the RAM vertical screen looks odd in a vehicle (vs a smart phone). I’m on the fence with the hood. Again, the styling is taken from the ZL1 I believe. Needless to say, if I could spare the cash to park a ZR2 next to my Riverside Blue Camaro; I would do so.
The grill is hideous I didn’t think they could place the bow tie in a worse place but surprise surprise gm has done exactly that.
Umm, the screen is bigger than Rams.
If you measure the actual surface screen size area RAM is bigger!
If GMs 13.4″ is smaller than Rams 12.1 due to the Ram bring more square, it would have to be smaller by a negligible amount as it’s 10% more diagonal. While this is possible (I doubt true), it’s not souch smaller that it’s worth this silly comment. It’s akin to saying “550hp is terrible, brand B has 551!”.
It has a bigger screen than the Ram, I think that you are picturing the current (pre-interior refresh) screen.
As a follow up to my original comment, just went to Ford and Ram websites and built comparable trucks. First off, when I say comparable, I do not mean Raptor or TRX…so take your B.S. Raptor competitor comments somewhere else.
A fully optioned 2021 Tremor 402A High including destination came to $66,140.
A fully optioned 2021 Ram Rebel 12 Hemi/etorque including destination came to $62,780.
As others have stated, the ZR2 will most likely come fully loaded. IMO the ZR2 is more capable off road than these other two trucks, and gm has really stepped up their game on the interior. So, the $67k isn’t completely absurd, just higher than we hoped.
I think they will still sell even though it is 5k higher than I think it should be. No one gets a Raptor at MSRP. Your lucky if you can get one in the mid 70k range.
Interesting choice, albeit a poor one. Should have priced it at 60,000 and ATX4 (Denali) at 64,000
Funny they will price a midengine C8 so aggressively yet an ultra high margin truck gets priced like this
To clarify when I say poor choice I mean disappointing. Chevy and GMC will still sell a boat load.
This truck has many advantages over the raptor. First it narrower, the raptor is not good for most trail riding. Second its full of tech and probably a better suspension than the raptor. It also looks good. But unless dealers start getting more trucks they will sale everyone they can build at MSRP.
You’re tripping bro.
You have to be high.
The Raptor has far more advantages than just power. The suspension is likely to be far better on the Raptor (much larger and higher travel shocks, superior response tuning, beefier control arms, thicker underbody protection for increased durability, and Panhard rod), the clearance numbers are better regardless of if you have the 37 package, the Ford looks vastly better on the outside, and the on road manners and stability are likely to be much better due to it’s vastly improved steering and wider stance. Angles on the ZR2 are between those of the Raptor 35 and 37, and the interior difference comes down to styling preference (but will likely be overshadowed by Ford’s laundry list of innovative features). You are getting legitimately nothing better on the ZR2, for a higher price, and for an objectively worse exterior design.
You had better wait for all the info.
I wager the ZR2 is like the Colorado version and it comes loaded up with only the radio and rubber floor mat options.
Keep in mind the Raptor loaded up is $80k
I think once we get more info you will find the Chevy has more options for less money. It will also be a better on road truck.
Just check how the Colorado ZR is sold and how few options. The Trail Boss is for the build it your self types.
Good points. We know the AT4X atleast is Denali based with the intent of luxury offroader
A great strategy by GM – as a Denali owner, I probably won’t buy another. I value more the off-road aspect than the luxury. But give an off-road + a little luxury = Winner.
The AT4 feels like a Z71 – a few extra goodies and badges. Had a couple of Z71s too. Great trucks.
Sales of this machine will depend on the “Brandon” economy and whether the gas prices collapse the truck market. I’m thinking long and hard about whether my next truck will be something that requires Premium fuel.
The Colorado ZR2 is pretty much loaded, you can upgrade to the bose stereo, navigation and wireless charging Comes with all the safety stuff that is currently available on the Colorado, leather seats and carpeted floor mats.
For the person that gave my comment the thumbs down, go look on chevy website and look under build, and pick the ZR2 trim. I says what it comes with. Basically loaded.
Bro why are you stressing downvotes from random people on the internet you will never meet?
First i’m not a Bro, LOL. I’m not stressing, its funny how those on this forum comment and don’t do any research and when you prove them wrong they like to give you thumbs down. Its those type of people who would also read a headline and believe what it says before going into the details.
This is how I talk bro, if you don’t like it that sounds like a personal problem just like you don’t like getting downvoted by complete strangers.
Joe the best thing of the web is you have access to about any info you can think of. The bad thing is it is where people get in your house you would not let in your front door. Ignore them as they are often proven foolish with what they post.
As for the ZR Chevy is following the formula they used on the Colorado. They are going to sell a loaded up truck for $20k less for the loaded Raptor. They will sell a greater number of these trucks vs Raptor due to the lower price.
Many people modify their own trucks anyways and that $20k saved buys lots of parts including a Supercharger if you so choose and GM does not take the CAFE hit for it.
The Colorado ZR has sold in very good numbers and has been very profitable. I expect a AEV version for the full size too fort Jose who want to spend the extra money.
The Raptor is a cool truck but it sells in low numbers. It also is not a cheap truck to build or buy.
This is a good formula and GM will make a lot of money and people unable to buy a Raptor will be able tonafgord a great truck.
What hets lost in pricing is people quote base price on the Raptor and TRX. Most are ordered loaded up and that puts the Ford over $80k and a TRX at near to over six figures.
Note trucks and Jeep’s are the main go to in the performance market as lifts, wheels and winches are all emissions legal. Also they are much easier and in many cases cheaper to modify than a engine today.
They are also something you can drive daily,work with or just have fun. With the high cost of limited use performance cars the younger people are opting more for affordable trucks.
While many praise the Syclone they only sold like 1500 of them. The ZO6 was cheaper and sold many many more. You could even get the body work from the Extreme on the base truck or loaded truck. Guys building trucks loved them.
Doesn’t the starting price of a raptor not include AC and 4wd??? 😆 kidding, but not by much. Pretty sure the base raptor has no floor mats, cloth seats, halogen lamps, no running boards, and the same stereo as the Ford Focus.
But to get a equal level of trim like most buy it will cost you $15k to $20k.
Now if you want less trim buy the Trail Boss and get on the Summit Racing site and build the truck as you like.
Most truck buyers like to build their own thing.
Also many forget that the Raptor is not very good on the road where it spends 90% of the time. The ZR Colorado is very good off road on trails like most off road on they generally are not in the desert. And the ZR actually is a very good off road truck.
Objectively wrong. In fact, most reviewers say it is the best road truck there is.
Wrong. Custom LED headlights, carpet mats, leather seats, mud flaps, upgraded infotainment system, and a high quality stereo are all standard on the current gen Raptor. You also get even further upgraded cabin insulation and more functional cargo spaces. The extra options are luxury upgrades or top end tech like Pro Power Onboard and CoPilot 360. The Raptor already comes pretty loaded.
Correct. The only options you can check for more are the Technology package, the multi flex tailgate, color and a sunroof. It is a stock high country of last year. Fleet order guide tells all. Surround vision is standard. Heated cooled standard. Rear heated standard.
No widebody, no 35s, no higher output engine.
This is all fine if it’s priced accordingly.
As per usual, one step behind but they’re convinced it’s not so they price it like the competition. They sell ok but continue to lose market share.
Is it confirmed to have 3.23 gears and a 24 gallon tank too? These silly (nice way of saying moronic) decisions are why for the first time there is a Ford in my garage.
No worries about the high engine output, as the last thing you need to do while rock crawling in decide to exit the atmosphere.
I do think an opertunity was missed however to make an SS trim based off the RST, lowered 1 inch and given the LT4.
While I agree Jake, if it has less power it should cost less. It also doesn’t have other features I mentioned which all add up to – it should cost less.
Would it have been too much to ask that GM do what we know Ford and Ram would have done and made the LT1 match Camaro numbers?
It’s a bare minimum effort that had become all to common. What’s the least we can do? Then price it like they did all the little extras the other guys do.
Thanks for the info! Was kind of expecting that price range to be honest. These vehicles aint cheap.
Only a fool would buy this trash compared to the others. Typical idiotic pricing by gm.
Be careful saying that here, you will upset the nut swingers on this website.
Lol Chase & ‘Babara’ Walters will come with torch and pitch fork
You should see some of these clowns on here the way they act you would think they designed and personally built each car.
Is there a reason the supercharged 6.2 isn’t offered? Seems like they are leaving money on the table.
Yea they are cheap that’s why.
The fact they are now pushing a turbo 4 or a V8 that shuts off most of the cylinders ans cut off at stop lights in a full size truck usually means they have government mpg concerns.
Just give the honest answer they are cheap.
Sort of yes. Chrysler has hundreds of millions in fines to pay because of all their supercharged V8s. They ran out of people to buy credits from
Cool story except we are talking about why gm didn’t make a certain engine available in this.
I don’t see how “cheap” has anything to do with it. If GM offered a supercharged V8 the cost will just be passed down to the customer. It’s not like they will be absorbing a cost by dropping a supercharged V8 and they are too cheap to do so. You will pay for it, not GM.
73K and you get the same engine that I can get on much lesser versions?
That makes a lot of sense.
Should have a blower on it for that price! I’ll keep my 2019 High Country. I’m tired of these jacked up pavement pounding princess trucks. Seriously, GM has 6 of them total (counting GMC). Make a street truck/performance oriented truck for those of us who don’t need to show off their “LITTLE EGOs” with a lifted truck that is never used for its intended purposes because of its skyrocketed MSRPs.
I can’t tell you how many Raptors and TRX’s I see driven here in Midwest by doctors, lawyers, retired farmers. Just makes me laugh!
GM has all the “goodies” available in house to take/borrow from and build as solid performer. So disappointing!
Not enough people will buy a street performance truck nowadays to make it worth it. It’s just a handful of very loud enthusiasts clamoring for it, same as with wagons, sedans, etc.
I beg to differ! Trucks and SUV’s are the hot commodity right now. No one is buying cars anymore! Make a truck and suv with the ride of a sedan, and the performance of a muscle car that can carry 5-8 people. PLEASE!!! It would sell like hot cakes. GM is just to interested in the EV move right now. Disappointing.
I’ll have a refreshed Silverado LT Z71 double cab with a 3.0 liter Duramax, 10 speed AT, and Max tow package in red tint coat, please! PS. Can I get that with the console shifter too?
You should be able to. From what they’ve said, the console shifter is standard on LT models and up….
All this talk about the ZR2, but your looking at the unsung hero truck right there. The Z71 package is really underrated. My Z71 has never let me down ever! Absolutely go for it!
Z71 isnt anything besides badges, terrible rancho shocks, and maybe a flimsy skidplate. I own a 2018 LT Z71 Crew and it came with highway tires.
The TrailBoss at least had a small lift and A/Ts.
Disagree. While badging is an important part of the Z71 package, because it’s an impressive package, it’s a combination of the towing and the 4×4 package, towing for HD cooling and G80 rear end. It the builds off that with an engine plush guard, engine bash plate, transfer case bash plate, fuel tank guard and the borg Warner autotrac transfer case.
As for the tires and shocks, the standard GY wranglers are all terrain. They are not supper aggressive like the duratracs, but are far superior in off road traction compared to wrangler all seasons yet are efficient and smooth.
I see lots of bashing of ranchos, which I think is unnecessary. Ranchos are debatably the best shocks out there for twin tube integrated reservoir shocks. Yes, they aren’t fox remote reservoir or billstien mono tube, but they offer more travel than the billstiens and are more rugged than the fox. They also don’t add 4k$ to the price while performing well both on and off road. If you can name 1 set of shocks that are better that don’t require changing the mount points, or remote reservoirs, I’ll change my mind.
Must be getting ahead of all the inflation.
“As of this writing, Chevy has yet to launch the Build & Price tool for the refreshed Silverado. It’s currently unclear when this will take place.” – #1. Why does GM launch the Build & Price months after the dealer can start ordering it? #2. Why isn’t pricing loaded into the Configurator? Customers like to know what the MSRP is.
It’s no wonder they went bankrupt in 2008. They haven’t learned a thing since then….
Just ordered my 2022 refreshed High Country… no Super Cruise available. Called GM and got shrugged shoulders on any information on it or any RPO options. Since Cadillac dropped super cruise as a standard I would think there would be some out there for the taking… for high end orders… maybe a few??? Does GM even know what they are building yet?? Gm is also leaving the dealers scratching their heads on options.
People need to stop buying there stuff until they clean there act up.
If it comes with alot standard then it will be a good value. the raptor and trx you have to get a lot of options to make it what you want and the price gets way up there
I think $45K would be fair, at least it’s cheaper than GMC’s Sierra AT4X, that thing starts at $75K when I think it would start at no more than $59K.
45k lol? look at the 6.2 Trailboss, need to be at least be realistic
A lot of good comments here. I like the idea of the Silverado ZR2, but I’d like to see a similar offering as part of the Tahoe lineup. The Tahoe would make a great overlanding rig with the better departure angle steel bumpers, hidden exhaust, E-lockers, DSSV shocks, and other goodies. They always assume people will never take their full size GM SUV’s off road. I’d love one that has harder body hardware and some off road credentials.
Interest rates can not rise fast enough
Way to go GM give us less for more. Not to mention that you are going up against well established competition. GM need to say what Suave say. Ours does what theirs do for a whole lot less. Actually give us more for less. It don’t have to do a whole lot more or cost a whole lot less. But more for less would a good starting point. Brand loyalty is not what it used to be ,so if I can get a better or even equal product for a lower price you better bet I am going for the lower price.
Where was the bashing for the GMC Sierra AT4x starting price???? $74k…. All GM had to do is give up a few dollars for a supercharged truck and call it a day and charge at that price
Agreed. This is a joke for the standard 6.2L with 420HP/460TQ. They needed to boost the HP/TQ whether by a supercharger or just by natural aspiration. There is no reason why the 6.2L can’t NA produce 500HP And 540ish TQ..
Also they should make the Performance Package standard on the ZR2…atleast that offers 435HP and 469TQ…it needs to have more POWER!!
