The Chevrolet fans probably remember the Chevy Silverado Reaper. Well, it seems that this model has served as an inspiration for Chevrolet to create its new pickup truck that will, based on its features, seriously compete with models such as Raptor and F-150. The new Reaper will make its debut as a 2019 model, offering an innovative design and new powertrain options.
To be honest, the Reaper has not been quite famous for being an attractive and eye-catching model in terms of exterior design. However, the truck lovers and off-road enthusiasts will definitely be satisfied because the well-known robust and bulky Reaper will undergo more elegant and modern makeover. It has also been said that the engineers will be using lightweight materials when building its chassis. Such a reduced weight of the chassis should significantly improve the overall performance of the 2019 Chevy Reaper, especially its acceleration and fuel economy. The truck will most likely stand on large 20-inch wheels, wrapped in tires that will be suitable for all sorts of terrains and conditions. The powerful front fascia will be dominated by a large grille with protective horizontal bars as well as the redesigned headlights that will be using the LED technology. The front bumper will also undergo minor rework and down under you will notice an exhaust system. All in all, the design of the new Reaper guarantees an improved stability and handling.
Being the next-generation pickup truck, the 2019 Chevy Reaper is definitely expected to be well-equipped with the latest high-tech options and upgraded safety systems. Well, according to the information we have got, this will definitely be the case, which is also good news for younger buyers. You can hope for a large touch screen with the infotainment system and options such as navigation, audio system, climate control and various types of connections for your smart phones. Safety systems and driver assist features will also be included, so you can expect safe and comfortable ride. There will be enough headroom and legroom as well as the cargo space. Premium-quality materials such as leather will probably be found in higher trims.
When it comes to engine that the 2019 Chevy Reaper will be hiding under its hood, there might be some changes, as far as we known. The current 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 550 horsepower and 552 pound-feet of torque will probably be replaced by a 5.3-liter V8 that is expected to produce 450 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. When we talk about the transmission, it has been speculated that the engine will be mated to either six or an eight-speed automatic.
