Chevy Silverado can get a powerful off-road versionOctober 13, 2019
This week, Chevy unveiled an off-road version of its mid-size Silverado pickup truck, which was specifically designed for racing (will be held this month). Representatives of the American brand claim that such a version of the model will certainly go on sale.
Chevy has experience creating off-road versions of its trucks for later racing competitions before starting their official sales. Take, for example, the Colorado ZR2 Bison, Chevy tested the version of this truck in the 2017 season, Best in the Desert Racing, and then released the production version of the car a year later.
Based on this, we expect the Silverado ZR2, ready for production, to appear in about a year.
This year’s cross-country pick-up race takes place in full compliance with 1200 Stock standards, which limits changes to the suspension, underbody, and the installation of safety equipment. The Silverado racing truck version is equipped with rear shock absorbers, 35-inch off-road tires and protective plates that cover the transfer case, steering gear, rear differential and the entire front of the underbody.
The Silverado racing truck also uses a long-pass suspension and a set of high-performance Multi-Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSVTM) dynamic suspension dampers. These innovative shock absorbers give the Colorado ZR2 serious off-road performance, so they can be expected on the upcoming Silverado off-road pickup.
