2024 Chevy Silverado HD ZR2
 

When Buffalo residents think of a Chevy Silverado, words like “sturdy” and “reliable” immediately come to mind. These are features you can count on year in and year out with pretty much every version of the Silverado that comes to market. The Chevrolet brand has meticulously cultivated the Silverado into a symbol of the ultimate workhorse, consistently delivering reliability and meeting demands both on and off the job site. At Joe Basil Chevrolet, we’ve long been synonymous with providing top-notch Silverado trims at the most competitive prices.

 

 

As the year unfolds, the 2024 models roll off the assembly lines, promising the introduction of a new contender in the Silverado lineup. However, this time, Chevy is setting its sights on a different realm – off-road dominance. The spotlight shines brightly on the ZR2 and ZR2 Bison trims, hinting at a seamless blend of power and off-road prowess.

New Trim, Same Truck

The ZR2 and ZR2 Bison trims arrive with a duo of distinct drivetrain options. The first variant packs a punch with a 6.6L V8 gasoline engine, unleashing 401 HP and an impressive 464 lb-ft of torque. Alternatively, the diesel-powered 6.6L engine roars with a staggering 470 HP and an earth-shattering 975 lb-ft of torque. The V8 option boasts a payload capacity of 3,759 lbs and a remarkable towing capability of 18,700 lbs. But hold onto your hats; the TurboDiesel takes center stage with an astounding towing capacity of 22,500 lbs! And this is just a glimpse of what lies ahead for the Silverado lineup.

The New Silverado ZR2: Where the Job Site Meets the Trail

An off-road journey is about more than just raw power. Enter the ZR2’s refined features: AWD prowess, responsive suspension, heightened ground clearance, and upgraded tires – all working in harmony to create the ultimate off-road experience. The coveted ZR2 badge is attached only to trucks that meet a set of stringent criteria, ensuring that off-road enthusiasts get exactly what they’re looking for. Here’s what to expect:

  • 35-inch tires
  • Elevated ground clearance of 11.6 inches
  • An additional two-inch lift
  • Dual-stage independent rear and front suspensions
  • Multiple terrain modes for seamless transitions
  • Custom dampers to handle the most challenging terrains
  • Aluminum skid plate for added protection

If you need more – the ZR2 Bison is here to elevate the game further.

The pinnacle of upgrades, the ZR2 Bison boasts its own distinct features, including:

  • Parts crafted with the expertise of American Expedition Vehicles (AEV)
  • 18-inch wheels designed by AEV for superior performance
  • A rugged front bumper and sturdy skid plate
