2010 SEMA Show: 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Race Car Hauler

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 2, 2010

After we saw the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Z71, another addition at Chevrolet’s SEMA booth has been brought to our attention: the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Race Car Hauler.

As its name says it, Chevrolet highlighted the capabilities of the new HD truck by pairing it with a race car mounted on an open trailer.

The new vehicle is equipped with a 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, mated to a revised version of the Allison 1000 six-speed automatic. Still, no powertrain modifications were made to the vehicle. We can’t say the same thing for the interior and the exterior of the car.

As you can see from the photo, the car features a black color with custom racing graphics, custom grille insert, chrome hood louvers, six-inch chrome oval assist steps, six-inch custom box steps, full-width tool box Cargo Management System, body color splash guards, chrome fuel door, trailering mirrors as well as a new set of 17-inch bright wheels.

Inside, the car features ebony leather seating with color stitching and piping, custom interior trim treatment in piano black, Dual DVD headrests with HD Wi-Fi headphone, Navigation radio and Autonet mobile Wi-Fi.

Chevrolet lead designer Paul Arnone shared that a Silverado HD truck towing a Chevy race car is something that many enthusiasts would want. The Silverado 3500HD is able to tow a maximum of 21,700 pounds and thus a race car is no big deal for this particular truck.

Arnone said that each part or system seen on the show vehicle are offered in the various Chevrolet dealers as well as at licensed aftermarket manufacturers. The Silverado HD has been designed to give the greatest work capability with the flair and comfort not found in other trucks.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Race Car Hauler

The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD was designed for effortless towing and hauling. It looks great doing it, too – especially when it is connected to a Chevy race car and trailer. Chevrolet highlighted the capabilities of the new HD truck at the SEMA show by pairing it with a race car mounted on an open trailer and hooked to a Silverado 3500HD Crew Cab Dually.

Maximum towing capability is achieved with the improved Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel engine and that's exactly what's under the hood of the display vehicle. It's paired with a revised version of the Allison 1000 six-speed automatic for a powertrain combination that is more powerful yet more fuel-efficient than the one it replaces.

No powertrain modifications were made to the display vehicle, but its exterior and interior wear a number of Chevrolet Accessories and other aftermarket parts, as well as a few custom touches developed by Chevrolet designers. They reflect the personalization many customers perform to enhance the style, comfort and capabilities of their truck. Highlights include a full-width tool box and, on the inside, dual DVD headrests.

"Just about every unique part or system on the show vehicle is available through Chevrolet dealers or via licensed aftermarket manufacturers," said Arnone. "It is a truck designed for the greatest work capability, but it does so with exceptional comfort and flair."
