Hendrick Motorsports, Dale Jr. Team Up for Special Edition Chevy Silverado 1500
Special Edition Package Available Through Select Chevrolet Dealers
There’s nothing more American than pickup trucks, except possibly NASCAR racing. To get your full dose of stars and stripes, buckle your seatbelts for the Dale Jr. No. 88 Edition 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 truck. Developed by Hendrick Motorsports, with input from Dale Jr. himself, the special-edition Silverado is a styling package available at select Chevrolet dealers nationwide.
Upgrade highlights include a Silverado signature sport bar with LED lights, a front nudge bar, custom off-road step bars, and black Chevy bowtie emblems front and rear, and exclusive five-spoke alloy wheels with all-terrain tires. The tailgate features a black vinyl applique with No. 88 graphics. To give the truck a little more motorsports attitude, a dual-outlet Borla exhaust gives the appropriately aggressive small-block rumble.
Earnhardt said he got inspiration for the truck’s styling from the GMC K20 featured in the ’80s TV series The Fall Guy as well as the “Big Red” custom truck he created for Chevrolet featured at the 2007 SEMA Show. Earnhardt worked at a Chevrolet dealership growing up and drove an S10 as his first truck. The Dale Jr. No. 88 Special Edition package is available on any Silverado 1500 Crew Cab short bed model and is available in any color.
