A peculiar 2014 Chevrolet Silverado test mule caught the eye of spy photographers as it was roaming around the back roads of Southeast Michigan. What’s so different about this one? The 275/55R20 Goodyear Eagle LS-2 tires. It was this exact type of rubber that was used on the last Chevrolet Silverado SS pickup. And, look! Red seat belts! That means something, right?
Pardon us for not sounding convinced. While the tires may point to something more exciting to drive than your standard Chevy truck, the puny tail pipe that can be seen at Pickuptrucks.com suggests otherwise. As do the size of the brakes. As does the generous ground clearance. And what are tow mirrors doing on a supposed performance truck?
Sorry folks, the evidence just isn’t strong enough for this test mule to be a high performance Silverado. And since the full-size two-mode hybrid project has been put to rest, chances are this is nothing more than a Silverado crew cab.
