Chevrolet Introduces 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition
Chevrolet and Carhartt unveiled a truck that might be the hardest-working truck ever designed: the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition.
“Over the last century, both Carhartt and Chevrolet have earned a reputation for building long-lasting products that stand the test of time,” said Janet Ries, vice president of marketing at Carhartt. “This truck represents a true collaboration of our brands coming together to create a durable, purpose-built truck for people who not only work hard on the jobsite, but also live a rugged lifestyle.”
Surprisingly, both brands are from Detroit, Michigan (which makes collabs easier)— the two brands first teamed up for the 2017 Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept vehicle at the 2016 SEMA Show. “When the concept vehicle was shown, consumer response exceeded even our highest expectations,” said Brian Sweeney Chevrolet U.S. vice president. “Listening to the enthusiastic feedback of show-goers and trucks enthusiasts led to the development of the production truck that customers have been clamoring for.”
Clearly, this decked out pickup is based on the Silverado 2500 LTZ crew cab, and then coupled with the Z71 Off-Road Package, which includes tuned, twin-tube Rancho shocks, “Hill Descent Control” and skid plates so the truck has some protection off-road.
Don’t look for a variety of colors for this special edition, as it is only offered in Mosaic Black Metallic, but the color looks fantastic when matched with pinstripe detailing in Carhartt gold, Carhartt badging on the doors and tailgate, 20-inch All Terrain tires and a soft rollup tonneau cover embossed with the Carhartt logo. Black vent hood detailing, tow hooks and a tailgate bowtie lend more dramatic styling, while a chrome grille surround and inserts, along with body-color front and rear bumpers, add to the distinctive exterior styling and the truck’s overall impressive presence.
The Carhartt-theme extends into the interior (as it should) and draws in all-weather floor liners with the Carhartt badge, along with beautiful two-tone Jet Black and Carhartt Brown leather-appointed seats with distinct stitching and Carhartt embroidered headrests.
The production Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition will be on display at the 2019 SEMA Show and will be available for sale in fall 2020.
