Chevrolet is known to be one big automaker that just knows how to create a pickup truck that's full of life and raw energy. One example is the 2018 Chevy Reaper that blends power and great off-road capability with a rugged appearance and top-quality interior.

The new 2018 Chevy Reaper will not be a classic truck for showing off, but more of a robust truck for driving through the city crown and for the off-road adventure. The truck supports a new front bumper, big wheels, big and squared front grille that's covered with horizontal lines as protection and muscular hood lines.

The new design comes with the LED headlines and a new and bigger squared fog lights. Chevy has not forgotten a stability and control over the truck on the bad roads, so they included a FOX Racing suspension system, reinforced skid plate, and special exhaust system.

When it comes to the interior, Chevy's truck surely holds one of the best interiors in the segment. This is because of the comfortable interior arrangements that go on par with attractive design and overall layout. The cabin will be both comfortable and spacious but well-equipped at the same time.

The truck also comes with heavily bolstered front seats that will provide long-life comfort and additional features. It's infotainment and navigation system gets an upgrade and smartphone integration. Also, safety features are said to get upgrades too.

The ongoing Reaper is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that produces 550 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. Another engine option is a 5.3-liter V8 engine that produces 475 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The powertrains will be mated with a 6-speed and 8-speed transmission options.
