It looks like the much-touted 2015 F-150 finally has its foil. But, instead of turning to aluminum for toughness (which still seems like an oxymoron here at College Chevrolet Buick), the all-new Silverado Toughnology Concept has simply employed a more effective, efficient, and even stronger version of steel. It’s a high-strength steel instead of simple carbon steel, and it makes the Silverado Toughnology Concept a formidably capable machine– not just cause of its awesome appearance, either.
“The technology of advanced high-strength steel makes the Chevrolet Silverado stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient – and that’s exactly what the Toughnology concept represents,” said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer. “During the Silverado’s development, we evaluated all materials and chose those that would provide the best strength to support capability while still delivering a strong value to customers. High-strength steel had clear advantages and is a contributor to the overall package that made Silverado the 2014 North American Truck of the Year.”
However, the technological updates aren’t just in this truck’s bones, though. The new prototype also features OnStar 4G LTE connectivity, which allows you to get on the internet via a local, built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
