Its been a while since we are listening rumors about the Reaper, the performance-oriented Chevrolet truck. The GM needs it to compete with Ford Raptor. Also, the development of 2020 Chevy Reaper will have to speed up, since the other rival, FCA, is preparing its Ram Rebel. All in all, truck lovers will have an interesting battle among these beasts.
But, the thing that bugs us is the lack of official updates. Ever since we heard of it for the first time, fans are bidding with the release date. Specs are somehow predictable since the Chevrolet Reaper will try to beat results from the newest Ford F-150 Raptor. The thing that makes us happy is 2020 Chevy Reaper pics in public. At least spy photographers suggest so. If they are right, we will see this truck during next year.
2020 Chevy Reaper vs Ford F-150 Raptor vs Ram Rebel
Main competitors of the 2020 Chevy Reaper will come from rival factories. Ford is already out with the new version of F-150 and its Raptor model. Ram is not official yet, but there are strong indications that 707 hp rated Rebel truck could come soon. The FCA is using easter eggs, which will lead to the official announcement.
The biggest mystery is 2020 Chevy Reaper. It seemed like a done deal. The concept had it all – engine, specs, attractive design, but it never ended in production. Why? That is the question for bosses. General Motors had Sierra 1500 Denali as the luxurious truck, but it is not a real match to Ram Rebel and F-150 Raptor. The Chevrolet Reaper is the one who can respond to the task.
2020 Chevy Reaper Specs
Ford F-150 is already out with its Raptor. It uses a high-end version of a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that delivers 450 horses. However, Ram will try to kill this model by making Rebel that will be able to create 707 horses. According to rumors, the 2020 Chevy Reaper will land somewhere between. The most realistic options are 5.7-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 units. With a proper tuning, these can achieve 500 and 600 hp respectively.
