2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt Concept Debuts at SEMA #TENSEMA16
Work Apparel Maker Perfect Partner for HD Truck
People buy trucks for a lot of different reasons. Versatility, image, and driving visibility are a few of them. However, stepping up to an HD truck shows a whole other level of commitment. Most that purchase this class of truck buy it to use it for a purpose, whether vocational, towing, or severe work duty. So it made perfect sense for Chevrolet to partner with work apparel maker Carhartt for its latest Silverado HD concept, which will be displayed at this year’s SEMA Show.
The concept’s interior is trimmed in Carhartt’s signature duck brown garment material on the seats, armrest, and door panel inserts, featuring triple-stitched seams. The Carhartt logo is laser-etched on the headrests, and antique nickel-finished trim is used on the doors, center console, and instrument panel. Additional accessories and features include trailering mirrors with an integrated camera system, all-weather floor liners, assist steps, a bed-mounted toolbox and swing-out tool chest, 20-inch LED lightbar, electrical outlets integrated into the bed, and Carhartt gold pinstripe graphics.
The concept truck is powered by the new L5P Duramax 6.6L V-8 turbodiesel producing 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque. The Carhartt Silverado 2500 HD will be one of 20 concept cars and trucks displayed by Chevrolet at this year’s SEMA Show.
