  1. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11/1/2016 You might have heard that Chevy and Carhartt have recently teamed up to develop a Concept Silverado HD. If you're at this year's 2016 SEMA show, you'll be able to see this fine piece of work yourself. If you're not one of the lucky enthusiasts that made it to Las Vegas this year, don't sweat it. We've got you covered. This morning I traveled to the Chevrolet Performance booth and took a look at the concept in person. To be perfectly honest, I didn't understand what the big deal with this Concept Silverado was until I gazed at it with my own eyes. The press photos that have been floating around didn't point out the small touches that the brand applied to this concept. In short, the Silverado HD Carhartt is classic, smooth, and a damn fine Chevy. If you get a chance to see the Carhartt Silverado in person in the future, you won't be disappointed. Until then, enjoy these photos from the 2016 SEMA Show. And if you want more info on this Concept Truck, check out the full details right here.

  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11-2-2016 What happens when you take the small Trax crossover and outfit it to go off-road? You get the Chevrolet Trax Activ Concept. Lifted 1.5 inches (40mm), widened 3 inches (80mm) and outfitted with some aggressive BFG KO2 off-road tires, the Trax Activ looks outrageous. With a monster truck-style stance, you may may not even recognize it. With all-wheel-drive, the Activ is set to go just about anywhere. The Concept has a slew of aftermarket parts that, surprise, Chevrolet will eventually offer at your local dealer. While you won't be able to order the custom Satin Sandstorm color, the concept LED bar, or the unique front and rear fascias just yet, some of the other options can be picked up at your dealer today. The Activ Concept features the following production accessories: Thule Roof Basket - 19331872 - $309 18-inch Painted Wheels - 19302645 - $1,500 Center Cap w/ Chevy logo - 19300043 - $80 Front Floor Liners - 42533130 - $70 Rear Floor Liners - 42533134 - $60 While we don't doubt the above parts will appeal to Trax owners of all types, the concept as a whole is answer without a question in our minds. That said, it's always fun to look at something that just seems a little too extreme. What do you think? Would you buy the Trax Activ?
  4. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11-2-2016 The theme at this year's Chevrolet SEMA Show Booth has been all about showing off concepts that incorporate parts you can buy from your local Chevy dealer. The Silverado High Desert Concept is no exception. Built off a High Country trim Silverado, the High Desert Concept will go into production as the "High Desert Special Edition" in the near future. Details about the production version are slim but the concept points to a pickup that takes storage and bed utility seriously. Most noticeable on the High Desert concept is the Avalanche style hard bed cover with flip open storage containers and flying wings near the cab. The cover not only looks badass but provides functionality that is guaranteed to satisfy any outdoors-man who needs organized storage for their fun weekend getaways. While Chevy isn't talking about when the hard bed cover will go into production, most of the other accessories on the High Desert Concept already have part numbers. Among the items you'll be able to buy at you dealer before next summer: Illuminated black Bowtie kit - 23385942 - Q1 2017 22-inch wheels (but not in this color) -19301164 - $2,388 Chrome Chevrolet embossed grille - 84134045 - $520 Interior Floor Liners - 84051559 - $160 6-piston Brembo brake package - 84109402 - Q2 2017 Performance Exhaust - 23462043 - $1,195 What do you think about the High Desert Concept? Should GM sell the hard bed cover and would you buy it? We'll have more details soon.
  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11-2-2016 If you want a truck that's as fun to drive as the waves you'll ride after you arrive at the beach, look no further than the Colorado Z71 Hurley Concept. Chevrolet, partnering with legendary clothing brand Hurley, has created the perfect beach side partner for any surfer. The Hurley Concept has a unique Seafoam Green mattte exterior paint, dark satin graphite 17-inch wheels, a concept surf board carrier system covered with a Ventiprene bimini cover, a snorkle induction system, and a cool waterproof RFID wristband tailgate unlock system. Inside, a custom wetsuit like material (Ventiprene) covers the seats and ensures a quick drying interior after a day in the wet surf. Like the other concepts Chevrolet's been showing at this year's SEMA, the Hurley concept incorporates accessory parts you can actually buy from your Chevrolet dealer. No word on the snorkle, however. Those accessories include: Thule Roof Basket - 19331872 - $309 Sport Assist Steps - 84157000 - $695 Illuminated Black Bowtie Kit - 23385939 - Q1 2017 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Tires - 19325357 - $940 Rear-Facing Off-Road LED Lights - 23415421 - $995 Hitch Trailering Package - 84075521 - $265 Front Floor Liners - 84056631 - $100 Rear Floor Liners - 23381376 - $80 Performance Exhaust - 84179066 - Q1 2017 Does the Colorado Hurley Concept float your board? Let us know if you plan on hanging ten with some of the Chevrolet accessories featured on this concept.
  6. Zane Merva, Executive Editor GM-Trucks.com 11/1/2016 Chevrolet isn't wasting time letting the world know about all the ways you can use the brand new 2017 6.6L Duramax Diesel. At this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas, the brand unveiled a Silverado HD designed to literally plow the competition out of the way. Since we're at this year's show, we visited Chevy's booth to take a look. Meet the Silverado 2500HD Alaskan Concept. It's a high-intensity blue beast featuring the best of the Silverado and the accessories you can buy from your dealer today. The Alaskan Concept features Newly designed 20-inch "highly polished" wheels with 35-inch off road LT tires A unique hyper blue and ice metallic exterior color scheme One massive stainless steel V-plow package with the Alaskan bear logo Smoked amber roof lights and a spray in bed liner with the Alaskan bear logo Chevrolet accessories floor liners, chrome assist steps and black bowtie. Here's a few more photos fresh from the show floor. So, would the Silverado Alaskan Concept be a truck that you'd like to buy? Good news, aside from the custom paint and graphics, all of these options are available at your local Chevrolet dealership.
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9-30-2016 No, it isn't the 707 hp that the Hellcats get, but 575 hp is nothing to sneeze at. Using a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 and a paddle-shifted 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, Ram says this concept could run 100 MPH off-road. Ram emphasizes this is a factory drivetrain, not a tuner's version. With 13-inches of travel and 37-inch wheels the Ram Rebel TRX looks the part. It is also six inches wider than the current production Ram. Ram says that the Rebel TRX concept employs the standard Ram 1500 front axle with an open differential. The CV half-shafts are custom to work with the added width. Ram explained its rear end, saying, "In the rear, a Dynatrac Pro 60 axle spools power through an electric, selectable locker to 35-spline, 1.5-inch axle shafts. The locker is available in all modes and commits both rear wheels to traction at the same speed, spreads the torque load and maximizes the tractive effort (power put to the ground) in full-throttle maneuvers." We've seen Ram Rebel concepts in the past. Do you think this one will make it to production?
  8. The Red Accent starts with a Switchblade Silver Metallic convertible Camaro with a Adrenaline Red leather interior. The unique look features red “hash mark” graphics and the now popular black bowtie emblem. The red theme continues under the hood with a red engine cover. 20-inch 5-Spoke Gloss Black wheels with Red Outline Stripe complete the look. Chevy also lowered the car, added a Chevy Parts air intake and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers. Inside, Chevy added red knee-area padding, door inserts, mats and a center console cover. The Black Accent Camaro starts out with a red Camaro SS with black rally stripes, a black bowtie and blacked out lighting. The black 20-inch 5 Split Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels and red Brembo brake calipers compliment the look perfectly. Inside the jet-black materials are offset with red trim. Which would be your choice?
  9. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 10/26/2015 In keeping with SEMA tradition, but with a cool twist, Chevrolet has prepared two new 2016 Camaros using only its own catalogue parts. The two themes are dubbed "Red Accent" and "Black Accent." The Red Accent starts with a Switchblade Silver Metallic convertible Camaro with a Adrenaline Red leather interior. The unique look features red “hash mark” graphics and the now popular black bowtie emblem. The red theme continues under the hood with a red engine cover. 20-inch 5-Spoke Gloss Black wheels with Red Outline Stripe complete the look. Chevy also lowered the car, added a Chevy Parts air intake and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers. Inside, Chevy added red knee-area padding, door inserts, mats and a center console cover.

  11. The first ZR2 pickup was produced in 1994 and was available as an option on the compact S-10. It added a beefed up rear axle, wider suspension track, larger BFG All-Terrrain KO tires, and four-wheel drive. Powered by a huge 4.3L V6, the ZR2 was unstoppable off-road. Unfortunately, when the S-10 was shelved in 2003, so was the ZR2. Now, in 2014, it looks like it may return. Introduced last night in Los Angles, the Colorado ZR2 concept is modified extensively from a "stock" Chevrolet Colorado. Most dramatically, the ZR2 is four-inches wider than a factory Colorado. The ZR2 also has a 2-inch lift, unique front and rear fascias, flip out tow hooks, and electronic locking front/rear differentials. Read here to see the official horsepower and torque figures for the 2.8L Duramax Engine The Colorado ZR2 is all about off-road capability and is designed in the spirit of a pre-runner. New front control arms are paired with new shocks that have reserve reservoirs mounted in the front fascia. Approach and departure have been greatly improved over the stock Colorado's 25/21 degree angles. The ZR2 has a 30.7 degree approach angle and a 22.7 degree departure angle. Main features of the Colorado ZR2 Concept Builds on Colorado Z71 as a platform Four inches wider than production Z71 Two-inch lift kit Integrated skid plates 30.7-degree approach / 22.7-degree departure Flip-out aluminum tow hooks Front winch integrated with front fascia Mono-tune coil-over shock absorbers by King Electronic front/rear locking differentials 18-inch aluminum multi-spoke bead-lock rims Custom wheel flares All new grille and headlight housings New front and rear fascia Cyprus Green Exterior Color with Henna Orange accents ZR2 logos on exterior and interior 2.8L Duramax Diesel / 181-hp & 369 lb-ft Chevrolet is giving strong signals that the ZR2 will be produced. See this quote; “Chevrolet has a heritage of the ZR2 representing the ultimate in production-based off-road capability and we’ll gauge the public’s interest in this concept as we continue to explore the possibilities for the all-new Colorado.” As any current or prior ZR2 owner will attest, the idea that the RPO code could make a come back is exciting. Look for more details about the ZR2 in the future, tell Chevrolet you want one, and cross your fingers!
  12. By Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11/20/2014 The infamous ZR2 moniker has returned. Introduced at the 2014 LA Auto Show, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Concept offers a first look at what a from-the-factory off-road Colorado might look like. The first ZR2 pickup was produced in 1994 and was available as an option on the compact S-10. It added a beefed up rear axle, wider suspension track, larger BFG All-Terrrain KO tires, and four-wheel drive. Powered by a huge 4.3L V6, the ZR2 was unstoppable off-road.

  13. The unique Silverado, shown at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas, is paired with an all new Polaris ACE, and single passenger UTV. The two have matching graphics packages and are ready for the trail with Chevrolet off-road accessories. The Silverado is equipped with 22-inch Pirelli off-road tires concept fender flares, an off-road Z71 package, and a 6.2L 420-horsepower V8 engine. It also has front nudge bar and custom LED lighting. A custom intake and exhaust system is paired with 16-inch Brembo brakes for a kick up in performance. View attachment: 2014-11-04 11.31.23.jpgView attachment: 2014-11-04 11.31.34.jpg “The Silverado is designed to work hard for its owner, on or off the clock,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “Pairing it with the new Polaris ACE perfectly illustrates how the Silverado easily changes its support role when it’s time to leave the job site for the trail head.” View attachment: 2014-11-04 11.32.14.jpg Here's the press release from Polaris Silverado Polaris ACE+ Concept Ready for the Trail Outdoor recreation-themed concept paired with innovative off-road vehicle LAS VEGAS – The Chevrolet Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept shows that while Chevy’s full-size truck was designed for work, it also works hard to enable recreational interests. The outdoors-themed concept debuts at the SEMA Show this week and is paired with the new Polaris® ACE™ – a revolutionary single-seat, sit-in off-road vehicle launched earlier this year. The concept truck is based on the production 2015 Silverado 1500 crew cab with a 6-foot-6-inch cargo bed and the Z71 Off-Road package. “The Silverado is designed to work hard for its owner, on or off the clock,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “Pairing it with the new Polaris ACE perfectly illustrates how the Silverado easily changes its support role when it’s time to leave the job site for the trail head.” Blending production accessories available through Chevrolet dealers and concept components under evaluation for future production, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept conveys the ruggedness of today’s outdoorsmen. Its ready-for-anything stance is driven by large, 33-inch–by-12.5-inch off-road tires mounted on Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch aluminum wheels, while concept fender flares enhance the truck’s broad-shouldered appearance. Additional exterior features include a concept bed-mounted sports bar with custom LED lighting and a concept front nudge bar. The cargo bed also features the available, spray-on bedliner – with the Chevy bowtie logo – that’s offered on all Silverado models for 2015. A black exterior, with blacked-out trim, is accented with graphics coordinated with the Polaris ACE. Inside, the concept truck features leather-trimmed seating and the latest connectivity features offered across the Silverado lineup, including MyLink enhancements with Text Messaging Alerts, Siri Eyes Free and new, available OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected (includes a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial) – a particularly helpful feature out on the trail. Under the hood, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept sports the EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, which features direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) to help generate 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine’s advanced technologies also enable an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway (2WD models), giving Silverado the best V-8 highway efficiency in the segment. Engine performance is enhanced with concept air-induction and exhaust systems, while braking performance is enhanced with a concept Brembo brake package featuring large, 16-inch slotted front rotors matched with six-piston calipers and high-performance brake pads. The concept and performance components don’t alter the capability of the Silverado, which includes a maximum payload capacity of 2,100 pounds for crew cab/6-foot-by-6-inch box configurations with the 5.3L engine and 4WD – and a trailering capacity of 10,800 pounds. When equipped with the available 6.2L engine and Max Trailering Package, the maximum trailering capability for the 2015 Silverado 1500 increases to 12,000 pounds.
  14. By Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11/20/2014 Chevrolet and Polaris teamed up for this year's SEMA show by showing off a joint concept truck that showcased the best from both brands.

The concept truck is based on the production 2015 Silverado 1500 crew cab with a 6-foot-6-inch cargo bed and the Z71 Off-Road package. “The Silverado is designed to work hard for its owner, on or off the clock,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “Pairing it with the new Polaris ACE perfectly illustrates how the Silverado easily changes its support role when it’s time to leave the job site for the trail head.” Blending production accessories available through Chevrolet dealers and concept components under evaluation for future production, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept conveys the ruggedness of today’s outdoorsmen. Its ready-for-anything stance is driven by large, 33-inch–by-12.5-inch off-road tires mounted on Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch aluminum wheels, while concept fender flares enhance the truck’s broad-shouldered appearance. Additional exterior features include a concept bed-mounted sports bar with custom LED lighting and a concept front nudge bar. The cargo bed also features the available, spray-on bedliner – with the Chevy bowtie logo – that’s offered on all Silverado models for 2015. A black exterior, with blacked-out trim, is accented with graphics coordinated with the Polaris ACE. Inside, the concept truck features leather-trimmed seating and the latest connectivity features offered across the Silverado lineup, including MyLink enhancements with Text Messaging Alerts, Siri Eyes Free and new, available OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected (includes a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial) – a particularly helpful feature out on the trail. Under the hood, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept sports the EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, which features direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) to help generate 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine’s advanced technologies also enable an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway (2WD models), giving Silverado the best V-8 highway efficiency in the segment. Engine performance is enhanced with concept air-induction and exhaust systems, while braking performance is enhanced with a concept Brembo brake package featuring large, 16-inch slotted front rotors matched with six-piston calipers and high-performance brake pads. The concept and performance components don’t alter the capability of the Silverado, which includes a maximum payload capacity of 2,100 pounds for crew cab/6-foot-by-6-inch box configurations with the 5.3L engine and 4WD – and a trailering capacity of 10,800 pounds. When equipped with the available 6.2L engine and Max Trailering Package, the maximum trailering capability for the 2015 Silverado 1500 increases to 12,000 pounds.
