Chevy Silverado ZR2 To Be Available With Borla Performance Exhaust9
General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 last September, revealing a long list of updates and changes for the light-duty pickup truck, as well as the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 off-roader. Now, GM Authority has learned that the Silverado ZR2 will be available with a new Borla performance exhaust system.
According to GM Authority sources, customers will be able to order a Borla performance exhaust system for the Chevy Silverado ZR2 through dealerships. The new exhaust system is tagged with part number 19433388 and priced at $1,799, plus install.
Critically, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 Borla performance exhaust system includes exhaust tips that remain tucked-up underneath the rear bumper, just like the standard ZR2 exhaust treatment.
The Chevy Silverado ZR2 is available exclusively with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which is rated at 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm right out of the box. No word on whether or not the Borla performance system affects horsepower and torque ratings. The L87 V8 connects to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission and a full-time four-wheel drive system.
With regard to off-roading goodies, the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has a plethora of standard rough-stuff features, including front and rear e-lockers, 33-inch off-road MT tires, and unique skid plates to protect the greasy bits underneath the body. The Silverado ZR2 is also equipped with a high-approach steel front bumper, with a 31.8-degree approach angle, 23.4-degree break-over angle, and 23.3-degree departure angle.
The handling spec includes unique chassis and suspension calibrations, with Multimatic DSSV dampers and uniquely tuned springs to increase overall suspension travel. In addition, the Silverado ZR2 features Terrain Mode, which enables one-pedal rock crawling.
Under the body panels, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 rides on the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana.

When will the ZR2/AT4X be offered with the Duramax 3.0? I want the option to have DSSV and SELECTABLE locking differentials with a fuel efficient engine that still can tow
Just go buy an AT4 or TB and add better shocks. You have no use for the front locker. The amount of people that will put this in an extreme enough situation to actually have a need for a front locker you can count on probably two hands. They are extremely over rated on anything remotely close to stock. A electronic from traction system is far better for 99.998% of drivers. All it is for most who whine about a front locker is a conversation piece to try and show up the other Dads is off road package trucks. Be realistic with your use. If you need to tow a ZR2/AT4 isn’t for you. If you need payload, it isn’t for you. 8900lbs towing and 1400lbs payload runs out quick, especially when you add another person or two and some gear.
For clarification, there is more to the AT4X and ZR2 than just spool valve shocks and lockers. I haven’t looked into the ZR2, but for the AT4X, the rear leaf pack is better, audio system is better, different terrain modes, 1 pedal driving, massage seats, suede headliner, different interior colors, and more adjustable seats. I also heard the transfer case is slightly larger.
I completely agree that most of those are unnecessary, but that’s for each consumer to decide.
Every 1500 Silverado besides a diesel
is available with this exhaust. This is not news.
Listen I love complaining as much as the next person… but don’t comment on ignorance. Anyone who pays attention at all to the aftermarket can recognize the S-Type. This is the ATAK system with the S resonator. AKA “ S-Type”
This isn’t the grandpa Touring GMPP exhaust.
Personally I’m still torn between the Corsa Sport and this system for mine. That being said, the Borla system looks clunky to me with dual “mufflers” in line. At this price point, make a single “S-Type” muffler.
How can you tell this is the ATAK system with the S resonator? I haven’t paid much attention to the aftermarket but I ordered this with the X. The borla site has no info on it.
I don’t understand the logic for eliminating the cutouts in the bumper (even though it does look better) and terminating the exhaust behind the bumper because the exhaust goes through the bumper, so you’re not gaining any additional clearance by eliminating the cutouts. But by removing the cutout trim pieces and installing quad tips it looks so much better.
Will it pass the NY state SLEEP act? It is now illegal in New York to modify the exhaust to make it louder than “stock”.
It should be good in NY, I plan on getting it installed. The SLEEP act mostly increases the fines for the prior noise laws.
