Expanded range of accessories showcased on Silverado, Colorado concepts
Vehicle ownership experiences don’t get much more personal than with trucks. From work to recreation, they provide the heavy lifting for life’s activities. The wide spectrum of truck uses was the impetus for Chevrolet’s fleet of personalized Silverado and Colorado concept trucks introduced this week.
Each concept uses Chevrolet accessories and performance parts to demonstrate how customers can customize their new truck with components available from Chevrolet dealers – including GearOn™ accessories and floor liners.
