To kick of the 2019 SEMA automotive trade show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet unveiled the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition that’s loaded with rugged flourishes from the Detroit-based outerwear brand.
Based on the latest Silverado 2500 LTZ crew cab, which runs a 360-horsepower 6.0-liter V8 as its standard engine and or a 44-hp 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 as an upgrade, the tricked-out truck is presented in a “Mosaic Black Metallic exterior and complementary pinstripe accents in Carhartt gold.
Black vent hood detailing, chrome grille inserts tow hooks and Chevy’s iconic bowtie emblem in the rear add more dramatic touches. Naturally, what Chevy is billing as the “ultimate hard-working” pickup runs on 20-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.
But this exclusive Silverado is really made for Carhartt die-hards. The apparel company’s logos and badging appear inside and out on the exterior’s doors, tailgate and soft tonneau cover and the cabin’s all-weather floor liners, brown leather seats and headrests.
It’s not the first time Chevy and Carhartt have teamed up on a vehicle collab. A similarly-themed 2017 Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt was shown at SEMA in 2016. That was just a concept, but the Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is going into production before it hits dealers in the fall of 2020. Details on its price have yet to be released.
