Community Question: Should Chevrolet Build The 2016 Silverado 3500 Kid Rock Concept?6
Chevrolet made a huge splash at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, unveiling countless concepts for enthusiasts to drool over. Some don’t look quite production ready, like the 2016 Camaro Krypton and its $80,000 paint job, but some are certainly more feasible, including the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Kid Rock concept.
We previously highlighted the 2016 Silverado 3500 Kid Rock concept in our brief list of three Chevrolet SEMA concepts the brand should build, but we want to turn it to you: should Chevrolet build it?
We think the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado “Born Free” Edition has a nice ring to it, and it absolutely nails, no, slam dunks its target market. Let’s not kid anyone, truck buyers rally around the culture that is the pickup truck. An American workhorse, associated with a patriotic pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps mentality.
The 2016 Silverado 3500 Kid Rock concept hits all of that with its subtle American flag graphics, dually configuration and giant chrome stacks at the rear and more. The truck is practically begging to print money for the brand.
The concept is one of the more production looking vehicles Chevrolet brought to the 2015 SEMA Show but, it’s your turn to vote. Let us know in the poll below if you think a Silverado Born Free Edition would be a winner, or a loser.

I like the huge fucking bowtie but I’d rather it be the original color and maybe different style wheels and the price tag would probably hit $70,000, but if I could afford it I’d buy one.
Hell yes build the truck Thank You Chevy for ignoring al Sharpton and standing behind Kid Rock you will sell a million and in His Spirit donate a portion to a charity
Love the Kid but skip the truck.
There is nothing wrong with it but it is a show truck not a production truck. Also trucks like this are normally a clean piece of canvas for owners to customize the way they like it. People in this class are more individual and like to do their as their own one off with so much available on the market. to work with.
I would rather see Chevy do a Raptor like truck and a 2WD sport truck.
The questions here are off too. This would not sell like hot cakes. The price of this truck is already high and this would put it over the limit for most. Have you ever priced the tires and wheels? They are very expensive let alone the other trim.
As for waste of money no it really is not a waste but it would be a limited group of buyers as most are already shelling out $70K for the standard truck as it is.
Move the trick stuff to the Half ton and make it at least affordable as you can. Even then you would be pushing or over $50K.
If anything move some of the trim here to a Cheaper half ton.
Perhaps a limited edition run of like 1,000 trucks?
Nope. Sorry, GM doesn’t need to build this. If you want something like this, personalize it yourself. The decals are a nice design (leave out the Kid Rock name though) and the wheels are nice. The bowties is too large (everyone laughed at the RAM emblem on the Rebel).
This is a towing truck. Anyone towing an enclosed trailer is going to absolutely hate keeping the front nose of their trailer clean because no matter how clean the exhaust is, the stacks on this truck will still cause the trailer fronts to blacken (no exhaust is perfectly clean).
Seriously , stacks?
