While most of the Chevrolet products we’ve seen at the 2019 SEMA Show thus far have been Corvettes and Camaros, sports coupes aren’t the only thing making headlines in Las Vegas.
The Chevrolet Silverado HD Z71 Sport Concept was also shown today, which General Motors says “puts an emphasis on heavy-duty personalization and adventure.” Of most importance here is the concept Z71 Sport Package, which likely may preview a production version of this same trim package. The Z71 Sport Package includes a body-color Chevrolet grille bar with chrome grille inserts, high-intensity LED headlamps, body-color front and rear bumpers, body-color door handles, black skid plates, black Silverado badging, black Chevrolet Bow Ties, a Chevytec spray-on bedliner, a black Chevrolet Bow Tie on the steering wheel, custom exterior graphics and off-road tires.
If you need a reminder, the standard Z71 Off-Road package includes an off-road tuned suspension with Rancho shocks, a metal underbody shield and electronic hill descent control. The concept Z71 Sport Package expands on the standard Z71 Off-Road package, adding more exterior styling features, black skid plates and some other goodies. Chevy says the concept Z71 package is a “bold expression of a heavy-duty truck that takes personalization and off-roading to a new level.” In other words, this package gives Silverado HD customers a little more choice when ticking boxes on their build sheet.
This particular concept is based around a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD with the 6.6-liter L8T V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. It also has the optional Trailer Package on it.
