2023 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Extremely Constrained Throughout The Model Year11
The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 introduces just a handful of changes and updates over the fully refreshed 2022 model year, once again offering the high-performance Chevy Silverado ZR2. Unfortunately, it’s looking like new examples of the ZR2 off-roading trim level will be few and far between, as GM Authority has learned that the 2023 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be extremely constrained throughout the model year.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be built in very low numbers, with just 5 percent of the original 2023 Silverado ZR2 unit total set to be produced.
It’s currently unclear why this constraint was put in place. However, the constraint is not related to the ongoing global microchip shortage, nor is it related to a supplier issue.
Developed in collaboration with Chad Hall Racing, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 is equipped with a range of off-road-ready equipment and features that give it the prowess and agility needed to hit the trail with confidence. This includes suspension upgrades with MultiMatic DSSV dampers, which are paired with uniquely tuned springs that increase suspension travel front and rear.
The Silverado ZR2 also features 33-inch off-road MT tires, front and rear e-lockers, a unique skid plate package, and a new high-approach front bumper that enhances approach angle by 31.8 degrees. Ground clearance is set at 11.2 inches, while the break-over angle is 23.4 degrees and departure angle is 23.3 degrees.
Under the hood, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 features the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the full-time four-wheel drive system through the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
With regard to the trim level cadence, the Chevy Silverado ZR2 slots in between the Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss and Chevy Silverado LTZ.
Under the skin, the Chevy Silverado 1500 rides on the GM T1 platform. Production of the Chevy Silverado ZR2 takes place at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana.

RIDICULOUS ! Offer a model/trim level and then don’t produce it. More evidence of poor management from the top (Barra) down from Goofy Motors.
It was designed with external components. Perhaps blame Chad Hall racing.
Go back to the old days when an anniversary Transam or a Yenko version Nova was only several thousand. That how it works high specialty stuff is limited.
Ah barra bashing, the common theme on gma. Get over it, women can run companies as well as men.
This has absolutely nothing to do with gender. Please stop. You’re embarrassing yourself quite badly.
Now, go give the Saul Alinsky 8″X10″ picture you keep on your nightstand a big kiss, then take a nap.
And why is there flipping and dealer excessive mark-ups
Because dealers are greedy and just want to grab your wallet. My 22 Colorado has Ceramic Coating ?????? on the Window Sticker FOR $$$$ 500.00 . I Didn’t Want but Had To Pay For It. Went back to the paint dept. No one could even tell what they used or the name of it, Jugheads didn’t know
I made it clear when I ordered my ZR2 back in November I want zero “ dealer packages” of any kind.
I picked it up flithy and unwashed right off the truck. Pathetically petty by the dealership. But it saved over 700 bucks.
Throwing cheap dyed window film on the two front windows and spraying it with wax is all the rage for backend nowadays.
gm is absolutely committed to betting the entire company on electric crossovers. A multi-billion dollar company is operating with current political climate blinders on.
Full speed into yet another restructuring once the ball doesn’t land on black.
The dealer’s “detailer” did not clean my truck, ripped off the plastic seat covers, and left them in the glovebox and center console. I made a deal with the dealer… this is what they agreed to… I get the truck as filthy as I can stand it to be and then bring it in and they will go over it front to back, inside and out detailing it… I told them that I will bring it in next Spring after a good winter’s worth of crap gets stuck to it…
I do NOT think that detailer is working there anymore as I was pissed.
Wow! It is amazing at the amount of nonsense the majority of you who visit this website can put in the comments column.
1. Every other country that manufactures vehicles have been developing EVs at a rapid rate. Yet you all are so blind and politically screwed that right is wrong and wrong is now right. So its okay that all other nations become proliferated with EV technology, while the US auto-makers just sit idly by and stay behind in the advancement of technology? Wow how dumb that would be.
2. It is utter rubbish when Americans, and the world over are crying out for high gas prices, yet majority of you believe that you’re so smart calling GM dumb for investing in technology for the future. News flash fellas. Cheering on nonsense will not improve the future.
What people are saying is that the technology is being rushed… mistakes are being made, such as dense power batteries catching on fire from overheating… range issues, etc…
BTW, Gas just two years ago under Trump was $180 a gallon, quite affordable…
Comment sections are sometimes known as the “complaint department” Get over it, pissed-off people rant!
