Time to have some real fun.
The SEMA Show in Las Vegas plays host to a wild range of aftermarket and automotive manufacturers that are looking to show off their latest and greatest products and vehicles. This year, Chevrolet is looking to make an impact with their new Silverado touching down with some impressive truck wheels in Las Vegas thanks to four new concept models, the most all-terrain ready of which is the Silverado RST Off Road concept.
“We know every truck customer is unique, which is why the Silverado offers eight trims, each with a different combination of technology, performance and design,” said Hugh Milne, Silverado marketing manager. “With a full catalog of accessories and performance parts, we offer exponentially more ways for customers to build their ideal truck. And, unlike certain aftermarket components, these are designed, engineered and validated to the same engineering standards as the Silverado itself, and backed by Chevrolet.”
The new Chevrolet Silverado RST Off Road concept is perfect for those that are looking to dig their truck wheels into the dirt, mud, sand, and any other types of rough terrain. The new concept vehicle will be on display in a vibrant Cajun Red to stand out among the crowd.
The new Silverado RST Off Road concept comes with a two-inch suspension lift from the factory to make room for its truck wheels and to overcome obstacles. There’s also a new Off Road Appearance Package that’s available from dealers which includes a sport bar, off-road assist steps, and soft roll-up tonneau cover. A new 40-inch LED light bar and Off-road Squadron sport lamps from Baja Designs is also worn by the concept.
Performance-wise, the new Silverado RST Off Road concept comes packed with a 5.3-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine pushing more than the factory 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. of torque thanks to a new cold air intake. A set of six-piston Brembo front brake calipers and color-matched calipers at the rear sit behind the new 18-inch off-road truck wheels with a Carbon Flash finish and corresponding off-road tires.
There’s quite a few other goodies that will be on display with the new Chevrolet Silverado RST Off Road concept inside and out. Customers will be able to purchase these upgrades from dealerships although the actual truck is not available as a model – just a concept.
