Chevy Silverado ZR2 With Trailering Mirrors: Live Photo Gallery16
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.”
The optional upgrade is priced at $260. However, as GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Chevy Silverado’s power-folding trailering mirrors are currently unavailable to order.
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.
As a reminder, 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 production takes place at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, the GM Silao plant in Mexico, and the GM Oshawa plant in Canada.

Not a fan
As long as they keep putting DFM in these trucks it’ll be a hard pass from me. Don’t they realize how many sales they are losing because of that idiotic system?
You can get the Duramax. That’s what I did.
What is your honest fuel mileage
What does DFM stand for?

Thanks, I hate that too, going with baby Duramax.
Maybe a few, just uninformed people making unrealistic speculations. Like those saying sales would increase massively if the Equinox/Terrain had the 2.0. It would have little to zero impact, same here. If you want a V8 you have to have some sort of fuel saving tech on it or you can happily go take a smaller turbo motor. Most buying don’t know what it is and the failure rate is in the decimal of a percent. So they probably do have an idea and know it is miniscule amount of sales being lost to the uninformed buyer, but the benefits far out weigh the down falls.
The system is far from idiotic, it actually works and saves fuel (as tested by GM and countless third parties) so if it works and is reliable how can it be idiotic? It helps prolong the V8 life…
A decimal of a percent? You’re dreaming—why do you think there is a class action lawsuit against GM regarding this system? GM is laughing all the way to the bank—they get the CAFE credits for the small increase in fuel economy at the expense of longevity, but as long as it gets them past the warranty period they couldn’t care less. Almost all of these engines will experience premature wear if not outright failure of a valvetrain component due to all the imbalances and subsequent wear causes by the cycling of the lifter system. This isn’t like a Jake brake system valve control system on a slow revving heavy duty diesel…these are relatively high performance engines where a balanced valvetrain is required for longevity and reliability. Any engine builder worth his salt will tell you this. It’s a shame that such an otherwise bullet-proof engine is being screwed up by a bunch of bean counters and engineers that don’t know sh*t from putty.
Those mirrors make the truck look even better
Those mirrors look absolutely horrible!
Not like you have any use for them, they are very useful to those who tow and the position helps limit blind spots even more which is extremely important with mirrors this large. Function > looks
Earth Shaking! They also need to lower them.
They look very functional for those of us who really use trucks.
So why offer them if they are not available.
