From SEMA 2021: How big is the Beast?
The Chevy Beast is a four-door truck similarly sized to the Chevy Silverado, which it’s based on. It has a 126.9-inch wheelbase and 13.5-inches of ground clearance. The width of the Beast is almost 10-inches wider than the Silverado pickup truck. The most ground clearance a Chevy Silverado can have with factory installations is 10.88-inches.
GM’s 6.2-liter supercharged small-block V8 LT4 engine is 376 cubic inches. Other GM vehicles with this engine are the Cadillac CTS-V, Chevrolet C7 Corvette Z06, Camaro ZL1, and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing. The next step we’d all love to see is this engine stepping into the Silverado lineup since the Beast is based on it anyway.
The Chevy Silverado could fight the Ford Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX
The Chevy Beast concept shows us precisely what Chevy can do with off-road performance. Since the Beast is sitting on the same underpinnings as a Silverado, of course, we’re thinking of upgrading it next. A Silverado off-road-focused model with similar technology, the same big motor, and more.
A Silverado like this could be Chevy’s competitor to the Ford Raptor or Ram 1500 TRX. These vehicles are wildly successful for their brands, and Chevy wouldn’t be any different. Adding a massive and capable beast to the lineup of full-size pickup trucks could be an enormous win for Chevy.
According to CarAndDriver, the Chevy Beast is only a concept from SEMA 2021 the automaker decided to show off. What it means, we’re not so sure. The concept could become a reality over the next few years, but don’t get your hopes up. Often times really cool concept vehicles like this never come to fruition. That’s why our most significant takeaway is hoping for a similarly structured Silverado soon.
