FOX BUILT AN F-150 RAPTOR FIGHTING CHEVROLET SILVERADO

It Took 3 Years of Engineering To Piece Together

2024 Chevrolet Silverado Fox Factory Edition

Chevrolet has come close, but continues to shy away from what could be considered a direct rival to the Ford F-150 Raptor R. Sure, there’s the ZR2 trim, but that’s not explicitly designed for desert racing; instead, with its class-exclusive front locker, the ZR2 is made for rock crawling, and the Bison takes that job to even greater levels. Luckily, if you’re looking to get a Chevrolet Silverado that could compete with the likes of the Ford F-150 Raptor or the soon-to-be discontinued Ram TRX, there are some aftermarket solutions out there, including this 2024 Chevrolet Silverado Fox Factory Edition. 

Considering how close Fox works with Ford on its off-road truck and SUV performance products, this Chevrolet truck from the racing shocks company may be something that is specifically enginnered to outrun and outjump any Raptor from the Blue Oval.

Chevrolet will likely never build a supertruck that could be considered a rival to the Ford F-150 Raptor. Sure, there’s the ZR2 trim, but that’s not explicitly designed for desert racing; instead, it’s made for rock crawling, and the Bison takes that job to even greater levels. Luckily, if you’re looking to get a Chevrolet Silverado that could compete with the likes of the Ford F-150 Raptor or the soon-to-be discontinued Ram TRX, there are some aftermarket solutions out there, including this 2024 Chevrolet Silverado Fox Factory Edition.

This very special 2024 Chevrolet Silverado takes on the task of turning the legendary pickup into a super truck with the assistance of a Whipple supercharger mated to the vehicle’s 6.2-liter V8 engine, which produces 700 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. However, that’s not the only thing that makes this truck stand out; with semi-active Live Valve shocks and Brenthel brothers suspension, this truck will race over dunes while tapping into its incredible power with ease, though careful with the throttle on the softer sand, you might get stuck. 

Like in the F-150 Raptor, the Fox Live Valve shocks pick up on acceleration, braking, and steering cues while analyzing the terrain every few thousandths of a second. This results in a highly smooth driving experience no matter what you’re putting the truck through. The system connects to the truck’s ECU and chassis systems, which took around three years to configure, but the company didn’t stop there. Each of these Chevrolet Silverado Fox Factory Edition pickups also has three terrain-specific drive modes, which are easily selectable through the dash, and the company intends to offer more customizable drive modes in the future via the Fox mobile app.

The amount of engineering that Fox put into the suspension of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado Factory Edition is insane. The final result of this engineering marvel is 14.5 inches of usable suspension travel, plus stronger 6061-T6 billet upper control arms, high-strength iron steering knuckles, and boxed and internally gusseted lower control arms. A set of 37-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires shields this. 

Each truck is backed by a three-year/36,000-mile warranty, and only 500 will be built in total, meaning they’ll be extremely rare but all that more special. It’s unclear how much Fox will offer these trucks for, but we can assume they won’t be cheap. And, if you want an even more collectable Chevy Silverado, there’s the Blacklake XT1.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
