• Silverado Special Ops Concept to Be Released as Limited Edition

    The SEMA Show is typically an event for automobile manufacturers to play around with their lineup and exhibit the most off-the-wall concepts their minds can conceive.

    One of Chevrolet’s entries this past SEMA Show was the Navy-inspired Silverado Special Ops Concept, which bore a more aggressive appearance paired with a blue camouflage paint job. Now, the Silverado Special Ops has been confirmed for production, with Chevy stating that the truck will be released in limited quantities.

    The SEMA concept version of the Silverado Special Ops truck was based on the Chevy Silverado Z71 model, which is optimized for off-roading capabilities. Paired with 20-inch wheels, off-road tires, the custom paint job, and an LED light bar, the Special Ops pickup is headed for production as an optional trim level package for the base Silverado.

    The Silverado Special Ops concept was conceived as a tribute to Chevrolet’s sponsorship of the Army-Navy football team and was shown at the big game. For each unit of the Special Ops model sold, Chevy pledges to donate a portion of the proceeds toward the National Navy SEAL Museum. Get yours at College Chevrolet Buick.

  • Longhorns Run Deep with New Chevy University of Texas Special Edition Silverado

    Chevrolet has potentially created the most amazing souvenir yet. The brand is launching a Chevy University of Texas (UT) Special Edition Silverado. For $795, you can get the truck in Sunset Orange Metallic paint–matching the school’s iconic Burnt Orange–with Longhorn logos on the tailgate and bed sides, and a set of chrome steps.

    “It’s part of Chevrolet’s ongoing sponsorship of the university, and a savvy marketing move given the school’s rabid fan base” reflects Fox News. UT has over 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students and nearly 100,000 paying members contributing to the Texas Exes alumni association. According to the Collegiate Licensing Company, the school has been number one in merchandise sales for eight years straight.

    Not surprisingly, the Texas Edition Silverado is only sold in Texas right now, but the UT package will become available nationwide starting in October, just in time for tailgating season.
