Chevrolet has taken the wraps off their new Silverado ZR2 concept at SEMA.

Meant to showcase GM's extensive performance parts collection, the ZR2 has been outfitted with a 550 horsepower LS supercharged V8 crate engine. Other goodies include BDS shocks, a four-inch lift kit, an extruded aluminum cargo management rail system (in the bed), and skid plates.

In terms of styling, the ZR2 features a bold design with carbon fiber body work (the front fenders, hood, fender flares, side sills and tailgate), a larger grille, and 20-inch BBS RD wheels with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires. Inside, the concept boasts black leather and suede seats (with contrast stitching) and plenty of carbon fiber trim.

According to the vice president of Chevrolet, Brent Dewar, "There's more to this concept than meets the eye. Some of the components are being explored for possible inclusion in upcoming models." This effectively means we're probably going to see a variation of the grille on the upcoming Silverado facelift.
