2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 Pricing In Line With 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor

The all-new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 was revealed last September as a direct competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor, even though it comes equipped with the same 6.2L L87 V8 as lesser variants of the Bow Tie pickup, which produces 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque in all guises. Thus, it was somewhat surprising to learn that the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 originally started out at $65,100, or $66,795 with the mandatory destination charge of $1,695, which was $955 more than the 2021 F-150 Raptor, which carried an MSRP of $64,145 plus a $1,695 destination charge, bringing its price up to $65,840. However, the ZR2’s price has risen significantly since then, as reported by GM Authority.

2022 Ford F-150 Raptor Pricing Versus The Competition
2022 Ford F-150 Raptor $70,370
2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 ZR2 $69,295
2022 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X $77,395
2022 Ram 1500 TRX $78,575
2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro $68,455

The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 now has a starting MSRP of $69,295, which is slightly less than most of its competition. That includes the 2022 F-150 Raptor, which has risen to $70,370, as well as the Ram 1500 TRX at $78,575, and the GMC Sierra AT4X at $77,395. The cheapest of this full-size off-road pickup group is the new Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, which stickers for $68,455.

The Sierra AT4X is a more well-appointed yet very similar vehicle to the Silverado ZR2, while the Ram TRX comes packing considerably more power thanks to its supercharged 6.2L V8 that produces 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The F-150 Raptor is exclusively available with Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 cranks out 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, while the Tundra TRD Pro is equipped with Toyota’s new 3.4L i-Force Max V6 hybrid that pumps out 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque.

While the Silverado ZR2 doesn’t offer any upgrades from lesser models in terms of its powertrain, it does come equipped 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.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    What a joke. Costs virtually the same as a Raptor and gets you much less truck. Other than towing, approach and departure angles (which it doesn’t win by a significant amount and in terms of angles loses against the Raptor 37), it is far behind. It still looks ugly as hell, they don’t have any of Ford’s innovative technologies (Pro Power Onboard, 360 degree camera view, Pro Trailer Backup Assist), you get practically the same base features, and no way in hell will this thing have close to as good of driving as the Raptor, on road or off. The Colorado ZR2’s suspension (which is the exact same as the one on this truck) may be good, but not on remotely the same planet as the Raptor. I expect the same to be true of the chassis, steering, and performance given the early figures. It’s yet another blunder on the part of Mary Barra.
