John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 2-15-2019 The all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado is this year's pace vehicle for the legendary Daytona 500. This is also the debut running of the updated Silverado Gander Outdoors Truck Series racer. The Chevy Silverado has been the most successful truck to compete in the series since the first race in 1995. The current racer is based on the Silverado RST. With this kind of history being made, our own dynamic duo is headed to Daytona intent on conducting serious research. We reached Zane someplace over Virginia for a comment and he simply said, "Research. That is the story and we're sticking to it." “The Daytona 500 weekend is home to some of the most memorable moments in racing,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “This is an exciting opportunity to introduce the strongest, most advanced Silverado ever to race fans all weekend long.” This Sunday, Chevy will make history as Silverado becomes the first truck to ever pace The Great American Race. Dale Earnhardt Jr., no stranger to this track, will lead the pack for this unprecedented moment in the race’s 61-year history. The pace Silverado is powered by the same 6.2L V-8 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission as our GM-Trucks.com long-term test vehicle. Chevy says that no performance modifications are necessary to safely pace the field of NASCAR drivers. Watch for updates including some exclusive images here.
Not sure if there is already a page for Orange 2014+ 1500 Silverado's, but if not, lets start one. I have found a few online, and have personally checked one out. It matches the color of a certain school I went to, and the Texas Edition trucks have a white UT Longhorn paint scheme. Even though I am a UT grad, I just don't know that I really care for the look. It is growing on me though. It is a sticker, so I am guessing it could be removed if I wanted. Also, it is a pretty similar orange to my '72 Corvette. Tan interior is, IMO, always going to be better than a boring black interior. With the DSMO, the tan leather is no exception. IT really looks great, again, IMO. Here are a few pictures of the truck I have seen.
