Chevrolet’s Silverado High Country offers pickup truck buyers a truck with a more luxurious and premium interior and a more upscale-looking exterior. Body color bumpers, a chrome grille and chrome 22-inch wheels set the High Country apart from standard Silverados, but what if you want a less-flashy, more-rugged look? Enter the Silverado High Desert.
The High Desert includes all the interior amenities of the High Country, including the saddle brown heated and cooled perforated leather seats, Bose premium audio, front and rear park assist and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with an eight-inch color touch screen. The only difference is the High Desert adds dark-tinted wood trim to the dash, doors and other parts of the interior.
The High Desert’s unique Deepwood Green exterior hue is complimented nicely with Oxide Gold and Russet accents. The High Country’s chrome door handles and mirror caps have been swapped out for color-matched ones, while the chrome grille has been replaced with a body color insert. There’s also a stylized sport bar in the bed, which appears similar to the Chevrolet Avalanche’s plastic bed bar.
On the performance side of things, the High Desert has an aftermarket exhaust system, Brembo six-piston brake calipers and 16-inch Brembo slotted rotors. Finally, Chevrolet designers added 22-inch wheels from the Chevrolet Accessories catalog and painted them in Oxide Gold with Russet accents to compliment the High Desert’s exterior colors.
We love the Deepwood Green exterior paint on the High Desert and think the Oxide Gold and Russet accents compliment the color perfectly. We’re happy to see the chrome grille, mirror caps and door handles gone in favor of classier body colored pieces and the Chevrolet Accessories wheels are also pretty attractive. We’re liking the subdued look, so we’ll vote ‘hot’ on this one. What about you?
