The Chevrolet display at the currently-ongoing 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit features a 2019 Silverado 1500 High Country with the Chevy glow tie. So we captured the following live photos of Chevy’s new pickup truck equipped with the illuminated bow tie to show you how the official accessory looks in person.
The illuminated bow tie, unofficially known as the glow tie, may seem like a minor customization – but it certainly catches the eye. The Chevy glow tie is sold as a pair of front and rear bow tie logos, available in either the traditional gold or in black. It is important to note, however, that only the front bowtie illuminates, and the rear emblem does not.
The Chevy glow tie emblems are crafted from quality ABS plastic and have been thoroughly assessed to ensure 100 percent water resistance. In addition, glow ties can withstand a range of extremely low (-40°F/-40°C) and ridiculously high (+158°F/+70°C) temperatures.
So, what do you think of the Chevy glow tie on this 2019 Silverado? Talk to us in the comments below.
