Originally developed for unveiling the first week of November at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the timetable was moved up to present them to the truck hungry Texas market first.
According to Chevrolet, the 2014 Silverado full-size pickup was used to “explore the extremes of preparedness” with the Volunteer Firefighter and Black Ops concepts debuted Friday at the State Fair of Texas. The Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept truck honors the service of grassroots first responders, and was created with input from the National Volunteer Fire Council. The concept includes a full complement of rescue equipment built into a new Silverado Double Cab equipped with the Z71 Off Road suspension.
The ready for anything Black Ops concept is based on the Silverado Crew Cab 4×4, with the addition of custom lower body armor and a lockable, bed mounted Truck Vault storage unit. The Truck Vault provides storage for a solar power pack, a pair of gas masks, gloves, military First Aid Kit, food rations, a folding shovel and rope.
If you missed seeing the two Chevrolet Silverado concepts at the Texas State Fair, both will be on display in November at the 2013 SEMA show.
