Chevy Silverado ZRX Will Be Like Colorado ZR2, But Bigger
A better suspension and locking differentials would make off-roading easier.
SEP 13, 2019
A Chevrolet Silverado ZRX off-road-oriented pickup will allegedly arrive for the 2022 model year, according to Muscle Cars & Trucks citing "sources familiar with General Motors truck plans." The model would act as a step above the Colorado ZR2 in the Bowtie's lineup of rugged pickups.

In a confusing twist, Fox Racing Inc, the supplier of off-road suspension components, filed a trademark for ZRX on August 22 specifically for "custom pick up trucks." GM's registration covered "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof."
Two companies filing for the ZRX trademark for such similar purposes makes us wonder whether Fox is working with GM in some way on this project. Fox already supplies suspension components for vehicles like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Toyota TRD Pro models. Adding another automaker to its client list, therefore, doesn't seem too outrageous.
