2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Carhartt Edition
A Memorable Silverado Concept
Back in 2016, Chevrolet and Carhartt teamed up to create one of Chevrolet’s most memorable concept trucks: the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept vehicle. The truck represents what Chevy and Carhartt envisioned the toughest-working pickup trucks should be made of. “Chevrolet HD trucks are designed for hard work, and just like your favorite Carhartt, their functionality transcends the workplace to become a style statement,” explained Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck marketing director, in a press release. “This concept vehicle mirrors the lifestyles of countless Chevy truck owners, demonstrating the personal connections with the tools of their trades.”
Duramax® 6.6-Liter V8 Turbo-Diesel Engine
This Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept features Chevy’s new Duramax® 6.6-liter V8 turbo-diesel engine, which appeared in the 2017 Silverado HD lineup. In this special edition model, the engine produces 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque—that remains true of this engine in the 2018 HD models today. Carhartt’s signature duck brown garment material is used in the Silverado 2500HD concept—on the armrests, on the door panel inserts, and on the seats. You can also find the Carhartt logo on the headrests.
Plenty Of Chevrolet Accessories
This special edition Silverado 2500HD concept features a number of popular Chevrolet Accessories, including assist steps, all-weather floor liners, a bed-mounted toolbox and swing-out tool chest, perimeter bed lighting, trailering mirrors with a camera system, and black bowtie emblems. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Carhartt model also features electrical outlets in the bed, Carhartt gold pinstripe graphics, a Carbon Flash exterior finish, a 20-inch LED light bar, and antique nickel accents on the grille, tow rings, mirror caps, and 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The collaboration between Chevrolet and Carhartt made perfect sense for this concept vehicle. Carhartt is a company, founded in 1889, that designs workwear products for our country’s hardest workers. Further, Carhartt is headquartered near Detroit, in Dearborn, very near Chevrolet’s own headquarters.
