ZR2 LT4/8 speed trans swap from Lingenfelter

You can bet your bottom dollar that this thing would be pretty hairy! 720hp?

Apparently FCA is willing to build basically this. Come on GM.

It's cool, but not really usable power if you do off-roading.

100% agreed. It's simply for the enjoyment of modding. Create a beast that nobody else has seen before. That's cool in my book.

GM would never. Iím still surprised the ZR2 even made it on dealer lots.

Yes, it is a bit shocking; however, in typical GM fashion, they did play it fairly close to the vest. The ZR2 brings some impressive off-road tech, but it still only receives the same engine options as the standard Colorado. It would have been nice to see a few tweaks to the available engines just to provide a little bit more punch to set it apart from the rest of the Colorado family.

It appears that the upcoming ZRX Silverado is going to follow this same blueprint as well. From the rumblings, it will essentially be a full-sized ZR2 and will use the 6.2L engine that is already available in other Silverado models. An extra 40-50 ponies would be nice, but everything that I am hearing, GM will stay the course and simply pull a 6.2L off of the shelf and put it into this new variation.

Maybe we get a version of the LT2 in this truck at 500hp or so.

Ugly truck...

GM needs to build an equivalent to the Raptor, but a V8 boosted.

That is the first time that I've heard someone say the ZR2 is ugly. To each their own.
