The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 was revealed back in September, finally giving Bow Tie fans a more formidable off-road-focused version of the long-running pickup to compete with the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX. The one thing we didn’t know about the Silverado ZR2, however, is how much it will cost. Now, GM Authority has learned the new rugged pickup’s MSRP, and it’s a surprisingly significant number, to be sure.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will start out at $65,100, or $66,795 with the mandatory destination charge of $1,695. That’s $955 more than the 2021 F-150 Raptor, which carries an MSRP of $64,145 plus a $1,695 destination charge, which brings its price up to $65,840. The TRX starts out at $70,425 plus a $1,695 destination charge, which brings that truck’s total to $72,120.
The notable thing about these prices, of course, is the fact that the F-150 Raptor is significantly more powerful than the Silverado ZR2 while also costing less. The Chevy pickup comes equipped with GM’s 6.2L L87 V8, which produces 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the F-150 Raptor’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 cranks out 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque – a difference of 30 horsepower and 50 pound-feet of torque.
The more expensive TRX comes equipped with a supercharged 6.2L V8 that produces 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. It will soon be joined by the Ford F-150 Raptor R, which will be powered by Ford’s supercharged 5.2L Predator V8, which is expected to produce around 750 horsepower in that guise, as Ford Authority previously reported.
Meanwhile, the Silverado ZR2 will get by with the same powerplant that’s available in lesser versions of that pickup, though it also comes with a host of suspension upgrades to make it more off-road capable, including Multimatic 40mm DSSV dampers, tuned springs, front and rear e-lockers, unique chassis and suspension calibrations, and the addition of Terrain Mode, which provides one-pedal capability for the trails.
