Could this be a 2019 or 2020 Chevy Silverado ZR2 prototype? GM’s answer to the Ford Raptor? Take a look at the higher ride height of this truck. Those Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires are unmistakeable. This prototype is a large crew cab with dual polished exhaust tips in the back.

Off-road fans have been waiting and begging GM to produce a truck to answer to the Ford Raptor. Chevrolet has invested a great deal into the development of the 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2, which is proving itself as the next standard in off-road pickup trucks. Why not apply some of those learnings and technology on a larger scale with the Silverado?

Check out the grille and headlights. The two stacked horizontal lights are classic Chevrolet. Will the production version of the truck use lights similar to these?

The Colorado ZR2 uses high-tech Multimatic DSSV spool-valve shocks. Why not create a version of the shocks that can fit the larger Silverado? Thanks to Mike for sending in these spy shots.
