Two new Silverado concepts from Chevrolet made their debut at the Texas State Fair. The first is the Silverado Volunteer Firefighter concept, which pays homage to first responders and illustrates how municipalities and governments can use this truck. The model is based on the Silverado Double Cab and comes with a two-tone exterior with a light bar, chrome side steps and some 22-inch alloy wheels.
Furthermore, the model has a siren, a PA system and chrome fire extinguishers. It even features an axe as well as an enhanced interior with chrome-plated accents. Meanwhile, the Silverado Black Ops is referred to as a "survival kit on four wheels."
Its exterior is rugged and has a custom-fabricated lower body armor, a winch, tow hooks and LED spot lights. It’s also fitted with tubular side steps, extended fender flares and 18-inch alloy wheels with off-road tires.
What makes this truck incredibly useful are its generator, a fuel can, a water can and a lockable toolbox that accommodates a "solar power pack," a couple of gas masks, gloves, a folding shovel and a military first aid kit. These two concepts are offered with a 5.3-liter V8 that delivers 355 bhp (265 kW) and 383 lb-ft (518 Nm) of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.
