Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops and Volunteer Firefighter Concepts
Not to be one-upped by Hyundai’s Bisimoto-tuned 1000 horse Genesis SEMA display, Chevrolet brought their own mega-Silverado pick-ups to the epic Las Vegas tuning expo. The Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept is based off of a 2014 Silverado Double Cap with Z71 Off-Read suspension and features a full compliment of rescue equipment.
The other, less rescue-y looking truck is the Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops concept, based off of a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab 4×4. While I would imagine most black ops vehicles would be way less conspicuous and bright yellow trimmed. But, the Black Ops concept does feature lower body armor, a lockable, bed-mounted Truck Vault storage unit carrying a solar power pack, a pair of gas masks, gloves, military First Aid Kit, folding shovel and rope.
Both Silverado concept truck are designed to be as tough as they come. Check out the gallery for a closer look and for slightly more info, check out the very short press release below.

DALLAS – Chevrolet is using the 2014 Silverado full-size pickup to explore the extremes of preparedness with the Volunteer Firefighter and Black Ops concepts shown publicly for the first time Friday at the State Fair of Texas.
Chevrolet developed the Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept truck, which honors the service of grassroots first responders, with input from the National Volunteer Fire Council. The concept vehicle features a full complement of rescue equipment incorporated on a new Silverado Double Cab equipped with the Z71 Off Road suspension.
