  • 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Custom Trail Boss

    The V-8 still holds court among truck buyers. That's why the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado will offer its range-topping V-8 in more trims, including the Custom Trail Boss, the truckmaker announced Wednesday. That's significant since the Custom Trail Boss is one of the more inexpensive Silverado variants within the truck's lineup, though it includes plenty of off-road gear. With the 420 horsepower V-8 engine, buyers will find a $43,865 price tag, before destination. Like other Custom Trail Boss configurations, each comes with a factory 2-inch lift kit, Z71 off-road package, skid plates, Rancho...

  • Bureko 6x6 Chevrolet Silverado
    Bureko 6x6 pickup is a Chevy Silverado on steroids

    Perhaps Hennessey Performance Engineering's Chevrolet Silverado-based Goliath 6x6 is too tame. If that's the case, a company based in the Czech Republic has a flashier answer to those with a need for three axles. Bureko revealed its upcoming 6x6 pickup truck based on the previous-generation...

  • Chevrolet Silverado ZH2 concept

    It appears Chevrolet may have yet another fuel-cell powered truck in the works. What can only be described as a Chevrolet Silverado ZH2 surfaced on the GM Defense website. The truck only appears in a quick slideshow and video montage at the top of the website and no additional details are provided on the truck or what is very likely its fuel-cell powertrain. We say the truck features a hydrogen fuel cell because the "ZH2" badge isn't new. Recall the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 that Chevrolet debuted in 2016 with the automaker's Hydrotec fuel-cell powertrain. The Colorado ZH2 was born out of a...

  • Specialty Vehicle Engineering Yenko Chevy Silverado

Complete with a 6.8-liter LT1-based V-8 engine, and a supercharger, the truck makes a whopping 800 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque. All Yenko Silverados will be based on the standard cab truck with a short box and the Z71 package. The pickup could very well become a modern star as the current-generation...

  • 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    Chevrolet is already out testing prototypes for its next-generation Silverado 1500, though the new pickup will be more of an extensive update of the current model rather than a true redesign. The current Silverado 1500 was introduced for 2014, bringing with it General Motors' then-new K2XX body-on-frame platform for full-size pickups and SUVs. However, the truck has failed to excite buyers. In 2016, Silverado sales were down around 4.3 percent while Ford’s F-series experienced a 5.2 percent gain in the same period. The new Silverado 1500, due on sale in 2018, as a 2019 model, will amp...
