SEMA 2015: Chevy Silverado 1500 and 3500 showcase tuning potential

By ,

Among the many different Chevrolet models on display at the 2015 SEMA Show, which takes place November 3-6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, are two pickup trucks designed to showcase the tuning potential of the popular and hard-working Silverado.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Realtree Bone Collector
Produced with the help of camo hunting gear company Realtree and Michael Waddell, the star of Outdoor Channel’s The Bone Collector, this concept is based on the new Silverado 1500 High Country Crew Cab 4WD. 

Goodies include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, aggressive off-road tires mounted on 22” black aluminum wheels, an LED off-road light bar to help illuminate the trail at night, and an eye-catching camo theme to complement the Realtree Bone Collector green graphics. Equipped with a 420-horsepower V8, the truck can tow up to 12,000 pounds. 

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Kid Rock
Inspired by his hit song “Born Free,” musician Kid Rock collaborated with Chevrolet to design a customized 2016 Silverado 3500HD “dually” that celebrates freedom and honours American workers. 

This model features a custom chrome grille with the Born Free logo and enlarged bowtie emblem, 22 wheels, tinted windows, chrome exhaust stacks, and patriotic graphics that flow across the black body sides. Mated to a 6-speed Allison 1000 automatic transmission, the 6.6L turbo-diesel Duramax engine allows a conventional towing capacity of up to 20,000 pounds – 22,600 with a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch.
