Chevrolet stormed the 2016 SEMA Show with a plethora of concept vehicles from mild to wild. However, we want to focus on two vehicles we think have a good shot at production. After all, SEMA is a time to judge public opinion and response to what’s debuted.
Those two vehicles would be the Chevrolet Colorado Hurley concept and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt concept. Both trucks debuted with subtle cues and useful features that could easily translate into a new special edition truck for either model. And we know Chevrolet won’t quit its strategy of segmenting the market for pickup truck buyers anytime soon.
The Colorado Hurley in particular hauls in equipment every surfer would likely adore. A custom surfboard rack, Bimini-style bedcover and a bed-mounted Thule to dry wetsuits are a few highlights of the concept truck. The seat material will even stay dry after plopping down with wet board shorts thanks to ventiprene usage.
As for the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt, it looks near production ready as it stands. Where the Colorado Hurley would likely have to be toned down slightly, the Silverado Carhartt features subtle nods to the hard-working clothing brand. Inside, the interior is splashed with the signature duck brown garment material on the seats, armrests and door panel inserts, with triple-stitched seams just like the jackets. Outside, pinstriping and antique nickel trim let bystanders know it’s not a regular ol’ Silverado.
So, do you like one over the other? Let us know in our poll and talk to us in the comment section below.
