The Reaper is finally heading into production. Recent spy shots are definitely showing beefed up Colorado truck that should compete Ford F-150 Raptor. This concept is already four years ago, and it was just a matter of time when General Motors will revive it. The time is now, and the 2019 Chevrolet Reaper is the truck we were waiting for. Meanwhile, it should be aware of the further competition. Ram is preparing the debut of its 707 hp rated Rebel TRX.
Why does anyone need a performance-oriented truck? Well, not all truckers are using their vehicles for work. Some drivers enjoy in driving pickups. The impression is the same as to lovers of exotic cars or old-timers. Well, companies are not earning too much profit from these trucks, but they can’t disappoint their fans. Finally, such high-output trucks are there also for showing-off.

How to make a performance-oriented truck, when there is no regular light-duty pickup with such drivetrain? There are too many questions and these are only rumors. But, General Motors is one of the major players in the market. Also, Chevy already offers some hybrids and EVs. So, if they developed hybrid truck while everyone was lured away by Ford F-150 Hybrid and Ram 1500 mild-hybrid, Reaper Hybrid could be the surprise of the season.
