2014 Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops Concept

Silverado Black Ops Concept is the Ultimate Survival Truck

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops Concept
DALLAS – Whether it's a hurricane the likes of which only Hollywood special effects artists could dream up or other unforeseen emergency, the Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops concept is ready for anything.2014 Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops Concept
'Luck favors the prepared and the Silverado Black Ops concept is a survival kit on four wheels,' said Chevrolet design manager Dave Ross. 'This concept truck showcases the stronger, smarter and more capable elements of the 2014 Silverado and how accessories can enhance them to suit any lifestyle.'

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops Concept
The sinister-looking concept is based on the Silverado Crew Cab 4x4, building on its strength, performance and safety with features designed to turn the wasteland into an oasis, including custom-fabricated lower body armor and a lockable, bed-mounted Truck Vault storage unit. It holds a solar power pack, a pair of gas masks, gloves, military First Aid Kit, folding shovel and rope.

A generator, fuel can and water can are mounted atop the storage unit, as well as a crate stocked with food. The Silverado's available CornerStep bumper makes it easier to reach into the bed to retrieve the survival gear, while the available locking tailgate with EZ-Lift-and Lower feature enables easier operation. An internal torsion bar reduces the effort to raise and lower it while a rotary damper allows for a controlled and more gradual lowering motion.

A powerful, front-mounted winch can help the Silverado Black Ops in most any catastrophe-induced predicament, while a custom cover around the winch has a bright, light-emitting diode, or LED, spot light and integrated tow hooks. The truck also has a raised suspension that provides extra ground clearance. Additional exterior concept equipment includes custom bed rails and a light bridge – equipped with forward- and rearward-facing light bars, Chevrolet Accessories bolt-on fender flares and four-inch tubular assist steps, and off-road tires mounted on custom-painted versions of the production Z71 18-inch wheels.


Inside, custom-trimmed black seats with yellow piping are complemented by additional yellow trim throughout the cabin, designed to be a comfortable and well-connected environment. It includes Silverado's MyLink system with available navigation – displayed on an eight-inch color touch screen. Standard ÚSB and other accessory inputs make it easy to upload favorite songs from a smartphone or other media source.

New, triple-sealed doors that are inlaid in the body sides and improved aerodynamics contribute to a quieter driving experience in the 2014 Silverado.

As with all 2014 Silverado 1500 models, a fully boxed, hydroformed frame is the foundation for the Black Op concept's strength and capability, with the main rails and major cross members formed from high-strength steel, providing a rigid base for maximum hauling capability.
