Silverado ZR2 Concept
2011 san diego international auto show. Usually the Silverado is not a car
that catches much of an attention, but the ZR2 Concept is for sure the
Silverado that never was. The most amazing thing about the concept is the
LS supercharged crate engine from GM Performance Parts that delivers a
total of 550 hp.
The ZR2 concept features a custom bodywork includes carbon fiber fender
flares that stretch outward to cover the 35-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler
off-road tires and widened stance. The carbon fiber is also used for the
front fenders, extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and tailgate. On the
exterior the concept is painted in Dune Metallic.
On the interior the concept add more carbon fiber details on the dash,
along with black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching
to those trail runs more comfortable.
At a glance, it's clear the Silverado ZR2 concept wasn't designed to haul
flowers back from the nursery. With its widened body, tall stance and
powerful LS supercharged engine, it is ready to hit the berms, dry washes
and gullies of the Baja Peninsula.
The Silverado ZR2 is based on an extended cab/short box body. The custom
bodywork includes carbon fiber fender flares that stretch outward to cover
the 35-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires and widened stance. Much
of the truck's body is made of carbon fiber, including the front fenders,
extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and tailgate, which features large,
debossed CHEVROLET lettering as a nod to Chevy trucks
of the pas
The pickup box, which is protected with a spray-on liner, features a unique
locking storage system mounted to the extruded aluminum Cargo Management
System rails from Chevy Accessories.
Many of the carbon fiber parts, including the hood, are clear-coated,
rather than painted, to show off the intricate weave pattern of the
high-tech, lightweight material. The parts that aren't clear carbon fiber
are painted Dune Metallic, a color that blends with the desert terrain. A
large, more prominent grille is also part of the package and is a vision of
what designers would like to see in a production or accessory part. It is
very functional, feeding cool air to the 550-horsepower LS supercharged
crate engine from GM Performance Parts.
The combination of 20-inch BBS RD wheels -- reminiscent of historic Chevy
-- and aggressive Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires connect to the chassis via
BDS shocks and a four-inch lift kit to help negotiate those desert trails.
The new front fascia dramatically improves approach angle and skid plates
protect the chassis.
The interior features more carbon fiber details on the dash, along with
black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching to those
trail runs more comfortable.
"There's more to this concept than meets the eye," said Dewar. "Some of the
components are being explored for possible inclusion in upcoming models."
