2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt – Changes and Updates:
The 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt exterior look will be a conventional 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Crew Cab Z71 combined with an addition of several bespoke and dealer available parts. The result is a truck with a one-off look. The vehicle is painted in a 2-tone black color scheme, with its lower glossy black finish coating. Its upper half is coated with a Carbon Flash matt finish. However, the two portions are separated with a pinstripe shade keyed to Carhartt’s trademark Duck Brown color. Up front, the grille is given unique Antique Nickel accents matching the mirror caps, fog-light surrounding, and 20-inch, 5-spoke wheels.
Its front bumper receives bespoke triangular tow hooks and a single row of LED-light for off road use. The tow hooks are finished in Antique Nickel coating. So, the truck boasts side steps that help make entry and exit from the truck easier for users. Around the rear side, the cargo box has a toolbox plus a swing-out tool chest. It rides on 20-inch wheels that are unique to this concept. These wheels come wrapped in mud-terrain tires that offer superior traction when off beaten trail.
The collaboration between a giant automaker and a reputable clothing maker has resulted in a perfectly bespoke interior that features familiar materials offered by Carhartt. The two companies also worked together to integrate Carhartt’s material into the armrests, seat bolsters, and door panels. They are stitched together with the Carhartt’s triple-stitching technique. The Carhartt logo is laser-etched into headrests. Despite the changes, the interior still includes all the contemporary tech from Chevy that includes the large driver information screen, MyLink infotainment system, and Chevy’s newest exterior camera system.
