Lingenfelter has teamed up with Chevrolet and Southern Comfort Automotive to create the Silverado-based Reaper, a pickup aimed to compete with the Ford Raptor.

On the outside, the Silverado has been transformed with a more aggressive front end with matching skid plates and bumpers while 20-inch wheels have been bolted onto each corner with 33-inch off-road tires. Fox provides the suspension for the Reaper would other upgrades include LED lighting, a custom gauge pack and a Corsa exhaust system.

Options for the Reaper include a rear graphics package, 17-inch beadlock wheels with off-road tires and those looking for more performance can get a supercharger and more from Lingenfelter.

The Chevrolet Reaper is available at participating Chevrolet dealerships.

    Late to that party GM. I’ll take the Raptor. At least it has run in Baja 1000 races. Proved it’s reliability AND worthiness. What have you done??? (Other than sit is showrooms.)

    Did you hear about the New Design by Ford on their tailgates? They are Heated so your hands dont freeze while pushing it in the winter

  • Daniel Gomez

    cant wait for a comparo… ford is gonna eat this for lunch, or motor trend is gonna give Chevy the win cause of the awesome step in the rear bumper…lmao
    speaking of the step in the bumper, 3 more inches & you’ll on top of the bumper so what is the big deal,, how bout put a step on the side of the bed..

    GM is asleep as the switch. America doesn’t need another 12 mpg truck that features $120. fill ups twice a week. Besides, America doesn’t need another butt ugly GM truck.

  • Guinea47

    Wow… This truck sucks!! GM as usual you missed the mark by leaps and bounds… good job. Take another bail out and sit down!!

  • Jason Gowler

    Hey Curtis, when’s your next scheduled recall?

    Or is GM going to wait 10 years to tell you?

  • narg

    Aggressive front? Looks gay to me. Yuck!

  • narg

    History shows GM to be much better on recalls than Ford. The ignition recall was BS. Everyone knows not to overweight your keyring, and all the deaths here were from key rings with over 5 lbs of crap hanging off them. It’s not a GM problem. It’s a stupid human problem. GM was forced to mother it’s consumers. The US Gov failed here. Failed big time!

  • narg

    Every Chevy dealer I’ve seen has a 3rd party Baja capable truck. Just because Ford makes them in the Factory doesn’t mean there aren’t others than can take it on (and win)

  • Jason Gowler

    Really?? What about their most recent recall where the ignition lock doesn’t even work and allows the car to have the keys removed while in motion? That a “weight” problem as well?
    ALSO that may be the widest reaching recall, because it affects LITERALLY every vehicle they’ve built in the last 10 years. The REAL BULLSHIT comes when you find out the front axels on their Cobalt, Optra, Cavalier, Malibu, Trax, Equinox, ALL saturns, etc… were splitting in half and they knew about it FOR 10 YEARS but said, “Fuck it! If enough people die, then we’ll worry.”

    THAT is why GM is a HORRIBLE company who clearly doesn’t even care about their consumers or their employees.

    THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHEVY AND FORD. Honesty.

  • brandon

    pinto or crown vic pig cooker ring a bell?

  • Jason Gowler

    Yes, but Ford also did the recalls immediately as opposed to waiting 10 years. GM is GARBAGE and if you knew anything about engineering or the Automotive industry you would know that.

  • Troy Power

    Wow, waste of time for GM, not even close to the Raptor in looks in any case, as for suspension and the rest of it doesn’t really matter, not what GM needs to focus on. Getting their quality up and consistent is far more important for them right now, GM has some really good product but far too any products that need attention, this thing will not be a success.
