ST. LOUIS, Miss. – General Motors completely astounded us at the Texas State Fair with all the exciting new features they were releasing, but one of the biggest thrills happened to be when Chevrolet Announced the 2015 Toughnology Concept! What’s Toughnology? Not only is it our new favorite word, but it’s also a concept truck lovers will truly adore!
When it comes to the truck market, the competition is always high, which is why we were EXTREMELY proud when the 2014 Silverado was named the North American Truck of the Year! With this being said, it pushed Chevy automakers to continue to work hard to go above and beyond the already established concepts. So what’s the next big thing? Well, we recently found out when Chevrolet Announced the 2015 Silverado Toughnology Concept! This concept has quality features that focus on the big things: capability, safety, and performance. This concept will give customers a truck that is made with high-strength steel, simulated raw steel appearance, and advanced connectivity resulting in a vehicle that is lighter, stronger, and more efficient than those made out of conventional carbon steel. Using this high-strength steel results in the pickup being up to 30% lighter than most and it is made out of a less expensive material, aluminum, which results in a lower overall vehicle price. What’s not to love?
It’s hard to believe this ONE material has played such a large role in the performance of the Silverado! Check out these ratings – the EcotTec3 5.3L V-8 engine offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway and maximum trailering capacity of 11,200 pounds, while the available 6.2L V-8 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission increases trailering capacity to 12,000 pounds!
Besides the pickup being dressed in a raw steel appearance with black accents, the 2015 Silverado Toughnology offers a variety of beneficial features:
- Chevrolet Accessory 22-inch wheels mounted on off-road tires
- Chevrolet Accessories grille insert
- Tubular assist steps
- Soft, folding tonneau cover
- Washable carpet bedliner
- Fender flares
- Tinted headlamp lenses
- OnStar 4G LTE with built-in WiFi hotspot
- Wireless phone charging mat
- Performance exhaust system
- Upgraded performance brakes
