Chevrolet To Donate Portion of Special Ops Silverado Sales to Navy SEAL Museum
2016 Special Edition Built in Homage to Elite Naval Division
Chevrolet announced it would donate a portion of the sales of its Special Operations 2016 Silverado to the Navy SEAL Museum in Ft. Pierce, Florida. The special edition, which started life as a concept vehicle in 2015, pays tribute to the elite division of the U.S. Navy and is based on the Silverado 1500.
Featuring battleship-grey three-tone paint, LED driving lights, aggressive off-road tires, a bed-mounted Sport Bar, and other niceties, the Special Ops Silverado offers a factory-custom take on the fullsize truck, joining the Midnight Edition, Realtree Edition, and Rally Edition in the lineup. Chevrolet will donate $200 for each of the first 2,000 trucks sold to the Navy SEAL Museum, aiding military families with scholarships and much-needed respite from the challenges of military life.
The donations will also go toward maintaining the museum and its exhibits, which include the Underwater Demolition Team/Navy SEAL memorial. Also at the museum is a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and the lifeboat from the Maersk Alabama, the ship captained by Richard Phillips before pirates held him hostage off the coast of Somalia.
Chevrolet announced its partnership with the museum to coincide with Military Appreciation Month this May.
