2024 Chevy Beast Off-Road Monster – Ford and Ram currently offer to duel, desert-running super-trucks, the F-150 Raptor, or the Ram 1500 TRX. GM has remained out of the fray so far, opting for cool, but comparatively tepid, efforts such as the Silverado ZR2 or Sierra AT4X. Chevrolet now has a vehicle that fits that niche, at least conceptually. The Beast is the name of the vehicle and aims to “dominate desert with capabilities control and performance.” It will be unveiled by Chevy at the 2021 SEMA Show.
2024 Chevy Beast Off-Road Monster Review
The Silverado with a short bed is the base vehicle for Beast. Chevy reduced the frame, added a Chromoly tubular safety system and a lightweight body. The engine was swapped for the LT4 crate engine, which is the same supercharged 6.2 liter V8 found in the CT5V Blackwing. It packs 650 horsepower. The Beast receives a 10-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. If you were worried the Beast would have trouble stopping, it also receives the straightforwardly-named Chevrolet Performance Big Brake Upgrade System.
2024 Chevy Beast Off-Road Monster New Design
The Beast has a custom long travel suspension with a track that is widened to 91 inches and 37-inch offroad tires with 20 inch beadlock wheels. These modifications have given the Beast 13.5 in ground clearance and an impressive suspension travel. The front is 12 inches and the rear is 15.5 inches. The Beast offers 45o approach angle, 35o breakover, and 46.5o departure angles. These numbers are superior to the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xtreme Recon’s.
It is possible that the Chevy Beast will be a prototype off-roader. This question is likely to fetch a five-figure sum. We don’t know the short answer. Chevy may be exploring the possibility of creating a Raptor rival, according to the Beast concept. We can conclude that Chevy wouldn’t flout this idea with their main vehicle at major shows like SEMA if they didn’t gauge interest.
