    Thumbs down Don't believe the hype!

    i'm sure i'm going to pi$$ somebody off with this but....the "NEW" Zr2 is nothing more than good looks and some bolt-ons. the Rapture has some serious hardware and it's hardware that serves a purpose....CRAZY FAST OFF-ROADING! i am a die hard chevy fan (except for the old 'stangs!) but chevy really dropped the ball on this one. here's an idea, how about building something that we want instead of building what you want us to buy? prime example, why no duramax in the suburbans or tahoes? i'm losing faith in "GOV'T MOTORS"...

    I'm a chevy guy all the way but this thing doesn't compare to the raptor. Number 1. ford actually built it.
    number 2. they actually put their homework in on this truck's suspension. Its not just a lift kit, this truck will actually haul off road and on.

    the ZR1 corvette's have 650 hp bud, and of course thats not to the wheels, nobody advertise their horsepower to the wheels. lets be real.

    hahahahahahahaha, being a chevy ride like a brick box? are you kidding? I've never riden in a ford that didn't feel like a stage coach. chevy's have always had a smoother ride than ford. thats a fact. I don't understand why ford boys are coming to a chevy forum, I see you own a chevy and a ford, there's probably a reason why your big boy truck is a chevy. I'm sorry for flipping out a little, but it gets my blood boiling when people A)don't have their information correct and B) can't stick to their respective forums...i.e. ford, dodge, gm, etc........ that is all

    all i can say is WOW! i have had fords, dodges and a toyota or 2. i have to agree that NONE of them have rode as smooth as a chevy/gmc. hands down they are the best riding trucks made. that being said, i think that it's good that the other guys are checking in on our forums. tells me that they don't have anything good goin on in theirs! seriously tho, chevy really dropped the ball on this one. carbon fiber on an off-road truck? and the suspension is nothing more than a "look at me i'm so pretty" suspension...same as the carbon fiber. the raptor does have a killer suspension and REAL off-road capabilities. from what i've read, ford really did their homework on this and they built an awesome truck. chevy COULD make one better if they would listen to the people that actually USE their trucks instead of building a "sparkle & shine" ride. i am a die hard chevy guy and i wouldn't buy anything else, for what i use mine for. if i were going to buy an off-road truck tho, right now, i'd have to go with the raptor. just because that's all that's out there right now. the ZR2 is awful purty tho....

    So, has GM decided if they are gonna build this thing yet? Picture to picture is no way to compare, I wanna see them go head to head!
    (and to the guys who said the camaro's beating the mustang, those comparos are showing it differently!!) Oops, there goes that can of worms again!!

    And on the funny side, a buddy of mine just wrecked his Lightning (not the funny part, was a sweet truck) and the insurance company gave him a Chevy 1500 with the small V8...he hates it! But it is fun joking him!
    C-Ya...Skiv!

    Like the truck, but is there more info on it somewhere? I would like to see, and read more. When would we see real one?

    I dont understand all the bashing over off-the-lot "offroad" trucks, I agree that if the raptors suspension works like they say it does, that may have done the zr2 in. BUT I strongly disbelieve that all GM is going to do on a specialty truck is throw a cheap lift on. even if it does demolish the raptor power wise, but what chevy hasnt done that? even if all they did was throw a lift on. I would take it over the raptor anyday. I'm not the person to buy a truck off the lot already built for offroad, I would much rather build it myself, I know EXACTLY what was done and how it was done, I trust it much more..and its MY truck. so ford guys, keep on bashing GM dealerships,and we will keep bashing you for buying off the lot and calling it good.
