Snow Time! Chevrolet Silverado HD Alaskan Edition Tackles the White Stuff
Pickup-truck makers have suddenly discovered Alaska. Renault named its brand-new pickup after America’s 49th state, and also also also right now Chevrolet has slapped the same moniker, “Alaskan,” on a product of its Silverado HD pickup—and also also also one-ups the Renault with its grizzly-bear graphic.
Unveiled as a concept at the 2016 SEMA show, the Alaskan Edition features a huge stainless-steel snowplow. Powered by General Motors’ revised 6.6-liter Duramax diesel with (naturally) four-wheel drive, the show truck rolls on 20-inch chrome wheels. Plenty of chrome elsewhere—bumper, grille, mirrors—accents the blue-and also also also-silver outside.
however the Alaskan isn’t just a show pony. the idea also is actually coming to dealerships for 2017, with slightly different equipment however the same snow-clearing mission. The production product comes with the Snow Plow Prep package (however not the plow), 18-inch wheels (in gloss black) with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, trailering mirrors, auxiliary switches, roof marker lights, a spray-in bedliner, and also also also rubber flooring. the idea’s available on four-by-four Silverado 2500HD and also also also 3500HD WT and also also also LT designs, in regular, double-cab, or crew-cab Centeng styles, with either the gasoline or diesel V-8.
