Chevy Silverado Concepts, Part I

Thursday, August 16th 2012. | Review

Concept cars are made by various car manufacturers to show what they are capable of and to show people what they can expect from their future cars. Chevrolet is no different and it has designed quite a few concepts to attract the interests of car enthusiasts and critics and to compete with its rivals namely Ford, Dodge considering that our focus is on trucks, let us look at some of the great Silverado variations and concepts that Chevrolet has come up with in recent times. We’ll take a look at the two concepts this week and two more next week.

Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 (2009 SEMA)

The Chevy ZR2 concept started out as an extended cab/short box Silverado but after liberal use of carbon fiber, a widened body, huge 20-inch BBS wheels with 35-inch wrangler tires and a 6.2 liter 550 hp supercharged V8 later we have the Chevrolet ZR2 concept. This truck also features a sprayed on bed-liner, lockable storage and cargo management rails. Furthermore, a new grille and hood vents along with the aforementioned use of carbon fiber help make this truck look even more menacing.

Silverado Realtree (2011 SEMA)

Chevrolet made this concept in collaboration with the outdoor outfitter Realtree. This Silverado concept has a rather attractive Champagne Silver Metallic exterior along with Realtree graphics. The interior is equally appealing with Dark Cocoa leather seating and Realtree touches here and there. The specialty of this truck is its off-road ability which is quite impressive thanks to its big diesel engine that produces 765 lb.-ft of torque and 397 hp. This Chevy concept also has a custom rear cap, 35-inch off-road tires with 18-inch wheels, a custom front bumper with an integrated winch and power-actuated running boards that make it better at entry and egress which make it really good at off-roading.
