2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Carhartt Concept at SEMA 2016
The aesthetic of the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept was based on hard work and can-do attitude. The no-nonsense Jet Black interior of this concept truck features signature Carhartt duck brown garment material as seat, armrest and door panel accents, and also features triple-stitched seams like on the jacket. That fabric is also used in the custom tonneau cover. This heavy-duty concept truck also features the Carhartt logo on the headrests and antique nickle-finish trim.
“Thousands of people go to work every day and earn their paycheck in a Chevy truck while wearing a Carhartt,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck marketing director, in a recent Chevy press release. “Those products’ durability and versatility earn respect and loyalty that’s passed on — and that’s exactly what this concept explores.”
Practical Work Features on the Silverado HD Carhartt Truck
Of course this concept truck isn’t just about looking good: it’s also about the dependability and quality that comes standard in every Silverado HD. This top-of-the-line concept also boasts features like a bed-mounted toolbox and swing-out tool chest, assist steps, perimeter bed lighting, trailering mirrors with an advanced camera system, a 20-inch LED light bar and electrical outlets in the bed.
