Chevrolet recently unveiled the Silverado HD Z71 Sport Concept, a unique take on the classic truck. Premiering at the 2019 SEMA Show, the Z71 Sport Concept comes with the new Z71 Sport Package, which includes a revamped exterior, off-road capabilities, and more.
The exterior will help you make an entrance wherever you go. The Z71 Sport Concept comes with high-intensity LED lighting for better visibility, a body-colored Chevy grille bar (which comes with chrome inserts), body-colored rear and front bumpers, and custom exterior graphics. You’ll also find that the Silverado comes with special Chevrolet Bow Ties and badging.
This new model is also equipped with a standard off-road package. This includes features such as special off-road tires for added traction, an underbody shield (colored black for the Z71 model) for added protection, and Rancho® shocks. You’ll also find Hill Descent Control for better handling on inclined terrain.
Under the hood of the Z71 is a 6.6-liter V8 engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and an optional Trailer Package. You can also opt for a diesel engine, which has 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, allowing the Silverado HD to tow up to 35,500 pounds when properly equipped.
Every year, you can see the best aftermarket and custom vehicles at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Each year, the show organizers hand out awards for the best cars, trucks and SUVs on display. At the 2019 show, the Chevy Silverado earned the title of Truck of the Year.
At the show, Chevrolet pulled out all the stops and showed off an impressive array of custom trucks including a classic 1962 C-10 pickup with an innovative powertrain system with two Bolt EV battery packs for a combined output of 450 horsepower.
As for the Silverado, Chevrolet brought five impressive custom trucks. These included the HD Z71 Sport Concept, the HD Carhartt Edition, the Trail Boss Midnight Edition, the Hall Racing Silverado, and a Redline Concept.
To win the Truck of the Year award, Chevrolet had to show how easy it is to upgrade the Silverado with aftermarket part and accessories. With all the custom trucks on display, it was an easy award to win.
“The SEMA Show is where the newest and most innovative aftermarket products are seen first,” said SEMA vice president Mike Spagnola. “SEMA Show exhibitors are the innovators and experts who drive the $45-billion industry. Knowing what they believe are the best vehicles for accessorization helps to forecast trends.”

The 2020 Silverado Midnight Edition is all about off-road performance. Available on LT Trail Boss and Custom Trail Boss trims, the Midnight Edition includes a 2-inch suspension lift, an automatic locking rear differential, skid plates, the Z71 Off Road Package with Rancho® mono-tube off-road shocks and more. The styling of the Silverado also changes with the Midnight Edition — no surprises here, it’s an all-black design approach.
The 2020 Silverado Rally Edition is more street focused, offered on performance trims (RST and Custom). You can get the Rally Edition Silverado in Summit White, Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot or Black; this package adds black Rally stripes on the tailgate and hood, a body-colored grilled, black badging, black Bowties and black exhaust tips.

For most of automotive history, the luxury sedan has been the pinnacle of the market. However, now it seems luxury pickup trucks are beginning to take its place. This has never been more evident than with the introduction of the all-new 2020 Silverado HD High Country.
This range-topping model could potentially be the first pickup in history to cross the $100,000 mark, says Sandor Piszar, Chevy truck marketing chief. While the starting price of the High Country model is just over $60,000, available packages can push it into the $90,000 range.*
The Silverado HD High Country is a truck built to impress. It comes standard with an impressive lineup of features like the 6.6-liter V8 engine with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. It also comes standard with four-wheel drive and includes an automatic locking rear differential and an Autotrac® 2-speed transfer case.
Inside, however, is where the High Country really shines. The standard leather-appointed seats are soft and sophisticated. The dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats in both the front and back will help keep everyone riding in comfort.
Technology features are abundant with a standard navigation system built into the 8-inch touch-screen system. You can also use the standard Advanced Trailering System to keep track of all of your trailers and make sure everything is connected securely.
Here in Texas, we love our trucks, even if we don’t really need one. However, if you are a farmer, a truck is a necessity. If you’re a horse farmer and have been searching for the best truck for your intense work, we highly recommended the all-new Chevrolet Silverado HD.
A few years ago, Farm Journal Media surveyed farmers to find out what vehicle aspects were the most important when making their choices. The results came in with four-wheel drive, durability, engine size, and cab configuration as the top considerations.
Here is what the Silverado HD has to offer.
Four-wheel drive — all Silverado HD models are available with four-wheel drive.
Durability — the previous generation Silverado HD was recognized has having the best long-term quality in a J.D. Power & Associates survey. We expect this new generation model to be even better.
Engine size — the Silverado HD comes with two impressive engines. The standard engine is a 6.6-liter V8 with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. There is also an available Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 rated at 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.
Cab configuration — you will have plenty of interior space with the impressive Crew Cab configuration on the Silverado HD.
We can’t think of a better vehicle to take you to the great outdoors than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Along with simply having a convenient cargo bed, there are a lot of Chevy Silverado camping accessories you can get to elevate your next camping experience.
Sleeping under the stars is a great experience, until you wake up with a sore back from sleeping on tree roots. A Silverado bed tent connects directly to the bed so you can sleep outdoors without having to worry about finding a flat place to stake your tent.
Keeping your gear secure is critical while you are camping. You never know what animals might be attracted to your campsite and attempt to go through your things. With a bed cover, you can keep everything secure and out of reach.
While you might head out of the city to experience a truly dark night, there might be times you need some light. Add some extra A-pillar lights or a light bar to shine a path through the darkness.
Make sure your Silverado is equipped with all the equipment and tools you need to tow whatever you plan to take on your next camping outing.

When you think of pickup trucks, you likely envision massive vehicles capable of towing incredibly heavy items, like boats and trailers. What you might not think of is a super-fast vehicle that can launch to 60 miles per hour in the blink of an eye. That’s all changing with the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
In fact, Chevy just announced the 2019 Silverado’s 0-to-60 time, and it’s unbelievably fast. When equipped with the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can spring to 60 miles per hour from a full standstill in under seven seconds.
The 2.7-liter engine helps with speed in part due to the weight reduction. This engine is 380 pounds lighter than the 4.3-liter V6, the base engine of the 2019 Silverado. But don’t let its smaller size fool you: The 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine serves up 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.
The 2.7-liter four-cylinder is also impressive in that it is the first four-cylinder that Chevrolet has ever loaded into a Silverado. While it can’t match the pure power of the 6.2-liter V8 (420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque), it is still quite potent — and its quick acceleration is just a bonus.
It’s no secret that Chevy has been updating its Silverado lineup and it looks like the American automaker isn’t going to be ignoring its HD lineup. The brand just released a teaser photo for the 2019 debut of the 2020 Silverado HD lineup.
“With a completely new, expanded range of Silverado models on the horizon, we expect to see even more truck buyers in Chevrolet showrooms,” said Alan Batey, global head of Chevrolet.
Currently, protype testing hasn’t begun just yet for the Silverado HD, but the model is expected to have a bolder design and larger proportions.
The reveal of the 2020 Silverado HD follows the debut of the 2019 Silverado 1500, which occurred in January. The American truck maker has also announced a new lineup of Silverado chassis-cab models, which includes the 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD.
Each of these recently introduced models have seen some significant changes. For instance, the Silverado 1500 has lost weight compared to the previous models and offers more customization options, so customers can find the pickup of their dreams.
While we don’t know much more about the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD lineup, we do know that it will be manufactured in Flint, Michigan. It’s expected to make its bow in showrooms across the country in fall of 2019.
