What ever you think of when you hear the word utility, I want you to forget it! The new Chevrolet Silverado High Desert brings unique content and capability to Silverado’s lineup of special editions and is redefining how we are able to fully maximize the use of our trucks.
“The High Desert package blends the capability and utility of Silverado with the refinement and luxury of Suburban,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “It’s ideal for those customers who want both the security of a lockable cargo area, as well as the flexibility of a pickup truck bed.”
The all new flexible, lockable storage system is great for those who store items such as tools and equipment in their bed as it keeps your cargo safely out of the elements as well as the eyes of someone who may be looking for an unapproved borrowing. The system is also water resistant and comes with dual side storage bins and a three piece hard tonneau cover.
The High Desert also delivers more ride control thanks to it’s Magnetic Ride Control suspension, The electronically controlled shock absorbers have replaced the conventional mechanical valve shocks and is the first Silverado to offer the new set up.
Silverado’s EcoTec3 6.2L V-8, is available on LTZ and High Country models and is backed by the new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is SAE-certified at 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful engine offered in a light-duty truck.
