Chevrolet’s new Silverado Polaris ACE+ Concept was unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show and according to the manufacturer the vehicle was designed for work but also to enable recreational interests. The most striking addition is the Polaris ACE, an interesting single-seat off-road vehicle that made its debut earlier this year.
Moreover, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ Concept also features 22-inch aluminum wheels from Chevrolet Accessories wrapped in 33-inch off-road tires. The wheels are hidden under the concept fender flares that improve the vehicle’s shouldered appearance. Other design elements include a concept bed-mounted sports bar with custom LED lightning as well as a concept front nudge bar.
The concept is finished in black, with blacked-out trim and graphics inspired by the Polaris ACE. Inside, we find seats wrapped in leather but also the latest connectivity features such as MyLink enhancements with Text Messaging Alerts, Siri Eyes Free and new, available OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
The special Silverado carries an EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 that produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, that offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway for 2WD models.
Engine performance is improved thanks to concept air-induction and exhaust systems, while braking performance is enhanced thanks to the new Brembo brake package fitted with 16-inch slotted front rotors matched with six-piston calipers and high-performance brake pads.
