First introduced with the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500’s full model refresh, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 brings next-level off-roading capabilities to the light-duty pickup nameplate. Now, we’re checking out the new Silverado ZR2 as equipped with large trailering mirrors in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
The images come to us from GM Middle East, which recently posted shots of the Chevy Silverado ZR2 ripping around some dunes with a set of trailering mirrors installed. The trailering mirrors are tagged with RPO code DQS, with the full product description listed as “Outside power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, turn signal indicators, puddle lamps, perimeter lighting, auxiliary lighting and memory; power folding/manual extending.”
In the photos, we see the Chevy Silverado ZR2 tearing up the dunes with abandon, spraying sand high in the air as the pickup rides the angled sand embankments and puts the power down. The tall trailering mirrors standout with a bright chrome finish, and look purposeful on the more-aggressive Silverado ZR2.
Speaking of purpose, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 is equipped from the factory with MultiMatic DSSV dampers that pair with uniquely tuned springs to provide enhanced front and rear suspension travel. A set of 33-inch off-road MT tires roll in the corners, while underneath the body is a unique skid plate package.
Thanks to a new front bumper and other improvements, the Silverado ZR2 features an improved 31.8-degree approach angle, a break over angle of 23.4 degrees, and a 23.3-degree departure angle, as well as 11.2 inches of ground clearance.
Motivation is sourced from the standard naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which feeds the GM 10-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive system. Under the skin is the GM T1 platform.
