If Chevy debuted the new 2012 Silverado 2500 HD Realtree Concept in the forest, would anyone know? To create the “ultimate hunting pickup,” Chevrolet has paired with camouflage designer Realtree on a concept that will “get the job done - and look sharp while doing it.”

Despite what the video may have you believe, the Silverado Realtree Concept doesn’t use a cloaking device and it isn’t even covered in Realtree camouflage.

Instead, it’s painted in Champagne Silver Metallic and adorned with Realtree graphics, which ensure that you’ll have no problem finding the truck in an urban parking lot or in a forest clearing.

Like the GMC Sierra All Terrain HD concept shown at the Detroit Auto Show, the truck is powered by a Duramax diesel engine that produces 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque, and it’s fitted with oversized 35-inch off-road tires mounted on 18-inch wheels.

To ensure that you’ll always make it to your hunting camp, the front bumper includes an integrated winch, and to keep your gear dry the bed is covered by a custom rear cap.

Inside, passengers won’t exactly be roughing it. Dark Cocoa leather is trimmed with camouflage piping and blaze orange stitching, while Realtree AP pattern accents are used to remind you what the truck is about.

There’s no word on whether or not Chevy will put the Silverado Realtree into production, but we’ll give you updates from SEMA next week. You can follow our complete coverage  of the 2011 SEMA show by clicking here.

  1. This truck is rockin for sure, if they built it it would no doubt give the Ram boys and Fords Raptor a run for their money. I like GM's Allison tranny but prefer the Cummins Dodge/Ram offers.
