SEMA 2016: 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept previewed

A serious workhorse By ,

The 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept will be on display at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas (November 1-3).

Carhartt, which specializes in premium, durable clothing and gear for workers on and off the job, is expressed in the texture of the concept’s distinctively trimmed Jet Black interior, which features Carhartt’s signature duck brown garment material on the seats, armrests, and door panel inserts, with triple-stitched seams just like the jackets. The Carhartt logo is laser-etched on the headrests, while antique nickel-finish trim is used on the doors, centre console, and instrument panel.

Outside, the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept sports a unique, two-tone Carbon Flash treatment with a matte finish above the beltline and high-gloss black on the bottom half. It also features a 20” LED light bar, electrical outlets in the bed, antique nickel accents on the grille, mirror caps, tow rings, and 20” aluminum wheels, plus Carhartt gold pinstripe graphics. Carhartt’s tough fabric is used for a custom tonneau cover.

Motivation comes from the all-new, next-generation 6.6L Duramax V8 turbo-diesel engine, which delivers more horsepower (445 hp) and torque (910 lb-ft) than ever for easier, more confident hauling and trailering, as well as quieter and smoother performance for a more refined driving experience, the company stresses.

In addition to the Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept, Chevrolet will showcase approximately 20 other models at SEMA.
