2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 W/T Black Out -- Cool Looks, Low Price
Entry-Level Trim Gets Sporty Styling Package
It seems like truck manufacturers are introducing new trim packages on a nearly weekly basis, almost to the point where our jaded instinctual response is, “Great, another trim package.” However, this one got our attention. A lot of truck enthusiasts have decried the trend to richer, more opulent trim levels, and consequently, the inflated price tags that usually go with them. “Just give us a basic truck,” they say. Well, Chevrolet has listened and answered with the 2015 Silverado 1500 W/T Black Out edition, which adds 20-inch alloy wheels, a matte-black front bumper and grille, tinted glass, and front and rear black bowtie badges.
Unlike most W/T models, which are fleet-standard refrigerator white, the Black Out is offered only in, you guessed it, black. The Black Out package is available on regular and double cab Silverado models as a $1,595 option package. As with most Silverado regular and double cabs, the 4.3L V-6 is standard, with the 5.3L V-8 a $1,095 option.
Suggested retail price on a regular cab Black Out is $28,895, but we were able to configure a Black Out with the 5.3L V-8 for just $28,340, factoring in the seasonal $1,750 rebate. According to Chevy’s website, the rebate is good through the end of February, so if you like the look of the Black Out, now might be the time to make your move.
