Although the SEMA Auto show was mostly for outlandish concepts, the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Alaskan Edition Concept was actually based on a production truck the company will be introducing next year. Owners of the Silverado 2500HD can opt for the Alaskan Edition—a snow plow prep package.
The production version of the Alaskan Edition is rumored to be packing the following: front hook-ups for a snow plow, 18-inch wheels, Goodyear DuraTrac tires, roof market lights, spray-on bedliner, skid plates, 220-amp alternator, and heavy-duty front springs. The concept version also has these things with the addition of other components that make it stand out from the rest.
According to reports, the concept version will be boasting of a blue body color with silver accents and grizzly bear graphic, chrome finishing on the bumpers, grille and mirror caps, huge stainless steel snowplow, front suspension leveling kit, and 20-inch wheels. Snowplows do not come with the box, but customers can choose which snowplow to purchase based on budget and usage.
Before building the Alaskan Edition Concept, Chevy already started plans to make it. These actual plans are very close to what was sitting in front of everyone at SEMA. The only major change is the huge snowplow, which can be angled to either side or can be V-shaped to plow the snow forward.
In terms of interior, the production version of the Alaskan Edition can only be applied on the Work Truck and LT trim levels while the concept is based on the LTZ trim level, which has rubberized floor covering and standard-issue LTZ leather seats with the grizzly bear logo embroidered on them.
There are no changes in the concept’s drivetrain from the production version. After all, the production version already packs GM’s newest 6.6-liter Duramax V-8 turbodiesel that can produce 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque.
Chevrolet has revealed the 2016 Silverado Rally Edition at the Texas Motor Speedway, and we can’t help but be wowed by its unique body panel, including a power dome hood.
The move sees Chevrolet extending its Silverado’s line of special editions, which offers more truck options than any other brand. Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director, said that their 2015 special editions clearly resonated well with new and younger buyers.
The brand’s total truck sales increased by 27 percent in 2015, which was double the increase for the total truck market.
The Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition differs from the standard truck because of its matte black graphics package and large wheels. Although Chevrolet didn’t reveal much about the details of the Rally Edition, it did say that the changes were largely inspired by trends in street-performance trucks.
The Rally Edition comes in a monochromatic color scheme with black accents and bold hood and body stripes. It has blacked-out wheels, which can be had in either 20- or 22-inch sizes.
If you will go and check Chevrolet’s “build your own” website, you’ll find that the Rally Special Edition will come packing these features—22-inch wheels, a spray-on bedliner, 4-inch round black side steps, black graphics, box-side decals, and front and rear black bowties. That package will cost $4,995.
For those of you who want the Rally Edition, you will have to choose the 2016 Silverado 1500 in LT trim with the Z71 package. That will give you the 4WD pickup with 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 with an option of either Extended Cab or Crew Cab. This will set you back by $46,965.
Meanwhile, while you decide on whether or not to get the Rally Edition, you can vote for your favorite special edition team as Chevrolet partnered their special edition trucks with a different Chevrolet Racing driver. Head on over to Chevy Trucks’ Twitter account to cast your votes.
