Just today we told you of how the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu utilizes high-strength steel in only the most vital areas of the car. But now, we’re bringing you the flip side of that equation. Chevrolet wants to show us why it even uses high-strength steel in applications, particularly on the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado.
The latest ad features a Major League Baseball scenario, where the fast pitch is tipped off the bat during the lean-in and swing. As the ball crashes against the high-strength catcher’s mask, Chevrolet draws the comparisons to the Silverado. If the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado uses the material, its more than good enough for a catcher’s mask. And those pitches are coming at over 100 mph sometimes.
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado benefits good stuff all throughout the truck. The cabin is made up of roughly two-thirds high-strength steel, while the rocker panels and underbody also benefit from even heavier duty “ultra high-strength steel.” The Silverado also features a roll-form steel pickup box, which is not only sturdy, but very light.
