  • The Silverado High Desert is a concept pickup truck introduced by Chevrolet at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Equipment.

    Featuring a few little additions to an existing product line, this is by far Chevrolet's tamest concept at the SEMA aftermarket trade show.

    Draws inspiration from the Silverado High Desert concept.

    The concept car concept is translated as "the idea of a car". This is a kind of prototype car, which tests people's reactions to new technologies being introduced, design solutions, etc. In its original form, prototypes are never launched into mass production.

    Chevy Silverado High Desert brings an Avalanche of emotions

    In a sea of customized and whacked-out project trucks meant to attract casual showgoers as they wandered the crowded aisles of the recent Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas, truckmakers have figured out the show is a great place to gauge interest about future design ideas and products they might want to bring to market. Taking advantage of an enthusiastic audience, Chevrolet Silverado engineers took the opportunity to show off a "drop-in" bed product that would essentially give long- or short-bed truck owner more storage space, a hard-deck bed cover and more bed functionality.

    In fact, what Chevy has done is to essentially re-introduce the Avalanche. The truck looks like a stock crew cab with a 6. While investigating the truck, four current and past Avalanche owners approached and asked if this truck would leak every time it rained or had a ton of wind noise when on the highway.

    Our guess would be no, since the design is meant to be a drop-in and there would be no rear-cab-wall door seals to weather or wear down. Chevy would not talk price but it was one display in the GM booth that had a constant crowd around it — until we chased them away to take these photos.

    The mid-gate was what made the avi. That was on the suburban line rather than the silverado - leaks or no leaks. Doing a mid-gate here would have been more complicated and probably leakier.

    Wonder if GM will make enough for Snugtop to make a cap around those "buttresses". Good name for 'em. Why would you want to put a bed topper on top of a bed topper? That's just not logical. Or did you miss the statement that this was a drop-in bed enhancement and not an overall modification to the truck itself? This is actually a pretty cool idea for the suburban crowd myself included.

    They should consider a Colorado version I figured the High Desert would of made a good Raptor fighter truck name or the more City people styled truck trim of the High Country aka Chevy's Denali. Its ingenious in that it is a single unit drop in.

    I like that idea. The option I want to see is an all aluminum flat bed with drop sides Just like on the Home Depot Rental trucks , that could even be offered in a dump or with tool boxes. I hardly ever trust foxnews. They're another source of information, true; but I always balance it with multiple other sources to get the real grain of truth. Once again PUTC gets their info wrong. Mark states that the truck has a 6. If you look at the pictures that truck has the "shorty" 5 foot, 3 inch bed. You can tell by the location of the fuel filler door it is not in the fender flare on the 6.

    Come on PUTC, if you are going to cover pickups at least act like you know what you are talking about! I really think if you are going to invest in something like this you should consider a pickup the incorrect vehicle, that is in most cases.

    How much does it weigh? What is the real increase in capability that couldn't be done better? The first few times I said secure your stuff, I swear you thought of tie straps and chains.
