I made a concept of what i think a Silverado ZR2 would look like

Recommended Posts

that front end is a definite improvement over the current ugly blah.  Could you improve the back end a bit?

And how about a higher model over the custom?  I like the grill, but the non-opening center armrest, the 4 way only front seat adjustment,  7" screens, lamo DIC,and a bunch of other interior things on the custom are not very nice.

I would have if it was a custom trim level option.

I agree with mafd2, I would definitely go with the LED headlights. Probably start with at least the LT Trail Boss trim level (if starting with that as a base on which to build).

ZR2 wont have different trims....it is a trim level but same bumper  not custom trim headlights or grill...and not 20" rims......pretty close though

 

as long as they throw decent suspension and beefier control arms on, maybe wider stance they will sell

 

but fact remains that for 80k I can replicate suspension, wheels/tires, and appearance for fraction of what a dealer charges for it....its the reason I didn't buy a trail boss....I can build a TB for under 3k with any 4x4 package but yet would have cost me 10-15k plus thru GM...if I bought GM lift kit and wheels (selling stock wheels) my RST would be an LT trail boss though almost 15k cheaper, imo always buy interior the exterior is easier and cheaper.....

 

the only downside is maybe resale....the raptors hold their value pretty well....but still 80k on some suspension is alot

      Chevrolet will offer “Exponentially more ways for customers to build their ideal truck.” This according to Chevy Silverado Marketing Manager, Hugh Milne. Emphasizing GM’s full involvement in the accessories it offers, Milne pointed out that the components and systems Chevy offers as options “Are designed, engineered and validated to the same engineering standards as the Silverado itself, and backed by Chevrolet.”

      GM’s plan is to produced four custom trucks in advance of the annual SEMA show I Las Vegas, which begins late October and runs into the first week of November. The first truck completed and shown this week was the High Country trim. Chevy also plans to offer the LTZ Concept, RST Off-Road, and RST Street. 

      Each of the four concept trucks has unique badging, style elements and its own look. There are, however, four main performance component systems that GM offers across the line on appropriate trims. Those include:
      -    2” Suspension Lift Including  All Necessary Steering and Suspension Tuning
      -    Performance Front and Rear Bake Upgrades
      -    Cold Air Intakes for both the 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines.
      -    5.3L Cat-Back Single Side Exit Exhaust, and 5,3L & 6.2L Dual Cat-Back systems

      Here are the four individual Chevy Silverado 1500 trims Chevy will complete and display this fall:
       

      High Country
      Envisioned as a premium outdoor truck, the accessorized High Country model on display at the State Fair of Texas through Oct. 21 blends high style, functionality and enhanced performance, including the all-new segment-exclusive Power Up-Down tailgate.

The following available accessories and performance parts enable customers to replicate the look and functionality of the show vehicle. They include:
      Chevrolet Performance
      Two-Inch Suspension Lift (see description below).
      Six-Piston Brembo® Front Brake Upgrade System with Color-Matched Rear Calipers.

      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

      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?

      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.

      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.
