There are a set of red tow hooks located just above a silver-polished skid plate.

This model in the pictures appears to be equipped with chromed rectangular 6-foot assist steps and MultiMatic DSSV dampers that are providing a bit more of an urban flair. The ZR2 is now offered with the naturally aspirated 6.2-Liter V8 L87 gasoline engine. The refreshed 2022 Silverado can also be had with the turbocharged 2.7-Liter Inline-4 L3B, which now showcases 430 lb-ft of torque.

The Motor Trend team was impressed with the 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that accelerates quickly and smoothly. The 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter engines pack a powerful punch! As you are destined to keep the party going off-road, the ZR2 receives several exterior enhancements such as a unique skid plate package and a high-approach steel front bumper that improves the truck’s all-important approach angle.
