The Silverado ZR2 concept which Chevrolet displayed at
the 2009 SEMA Show is based on an extended cab/short box
body version of the Silverado.
The custom bodywork of the ZR2 includes carbon fiber fender
flares that help cover the 20" BBS wheels, 35-inch-tall
Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires and widened stance. Much
of the truck's body is formed from carbon
fiber, including the front fenders, extractor-style
hood, rocker extensions and tailgate, which features large,
recessed CHEVROLET lettering. Many of the carbon fiber
elements have been left unpainted and finished with a
clear coat in order to show off the intricate woven pattern
of the material.
Other visible changes to the Silverado ZR2 concept include
a bigger, bolder grille which is an example of what GM's
designers would like to see made available as either a
production or accessory part. A 4" lift kit is also
fitted to the truck.
Powering the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 is a 550 horsepower
crate engine from GM Performance Parts.
The interior of the concept features more carbon fiber
details on the dash, along with black leather and suede-trimmed
Essentially the ZR2 is not a concept vehicle in its purest
form. Instead Chevrolet is using it to explore new styling
features and aftermarket parts for the Silverado. Depending
on consumer feedback some elements of the ZR2 might start
popping up through GM Performance Parts.
