It was about time to Chevrolet show their new baby 2018 Chevrolet Reaper and to release it. Since the first model has been shown, and that was 2014, we have waited to see it on salons and streets. Now, it is here, with many refreshments and new details, not seen on that first model and surely never shown in previous models. If we are looking for the similar vehicle under the famous brand, that would surely be Raptor, although there are many differences. According to everything we saw, it will be a perfect car for daily city driving as well as heavy duty usages and off road challenges.
As the opposite of many trucks covered with name Chevrolet, 2018 Chevrolet Reaper is like ugly but strong and heavy young brother. With the massive front end, supported by large wheels and plastic protection, stands gridded rhomboidal grille, fulfilled with large doubled LED front lights. Plastic bottom carries fog lights, while long and thick hood spreads over the grille, like protection. The rear end has extended truck covered with windows, and there is flat and simple truck door with large rear lights. The whole vehicle is large and massive, with sharp edges and lines and no many details to support aesthetical component.
At first glance 2018, Chevrolet Reaper has not the classic dashboard. It is more like three separated rhomboidal components with specific buttons and commands for each purpose. The central part is the biggest, with a large touchscreen and CD radio with most important buttons there. Behind the wheel are two watches, speedometer, and torque meter, while on the left side are other small commands. The cabin is wide and comfortable with largely adjustable seats, covered with leather and plastic. No one can say that cargo space is small, due the option of dropping the seats in the third row.
Although some fans expect the strongest engine in 2018 Chevrolet Reaper and that is 6.2-liter V8 petrol one with 550 horsepower and 552 pound-feet of torque like on current Raptor, there are chances that Chevrolet will put a smaller one, 5.3-liter V8 petrol engine with 450 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Those options are not confirmed yet, so we are not sure if Chevrolet is planning more than these two possibilities.
