The owners of 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 double-cab and crew-cab pickups will be happy to know that General Motors has just introduced Rally Editions of the well-known pickup truck. Designed for the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado LT pickups, the Rally 2 Edition package arrives with body-coloured front grille fitted with a black bowtie, 22-inch alloy wheels painted in black, black tubular side steps but also new mirrors caps and door handles painted in black as well.

In addition, the package includes a trailering package featuring a hitch and automatic locking rear differential, 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone climate control, remote start, backup camera and a rear defroster. Furthermore, the vehicle comes with an 8-inch Chevry MyLink radio that includes built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity.

Under the hood, we find the 4.30liter EcoTec 3 V6 engine that produces 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, capable to provide up to 7,200 pounds of towing. In order to deliver a better fuel economy, the V6 offers the four-cylinder mode and offers an EPA-estimated 24 mpg on the highway.
