Silverado Toughnology Concept

When looking for used cars or trucks, one of the qualities that car owners like to see is strength and durability. If a vehicle does not possess those qualities, then they will likely not last too many years. Most of our customers are looking for a vehicle that will last for a long time, because while updating a vehicle every few years would be ideal – it’s not always practical.

Chevrolet has been known to manufacture vehicles that have great strength and durability, but they have taken their reputation one step-further by creating the Silverado Toughnology Concept pickup.

Silverado Toughnology Pickup

The main ingredient in creating the Silverado Toughnology concept was of course, high-strength steel. The steel makes the Silverado lighter than before, while simultaneously increasing its overall strength and efficiency. The Toughnology concept appears to have a raw steel look to it, to highlight the new features of the full-size pickup truck. High-strength steel has the added benefit of costing less than aluminum, which in turn means keeping the overall cost of the Silverado down.

So know that we are familiar with the new material the Toughnology concept is made out of, what about the rest of the specs? Check them out below!

  • Raw, “unpainted” steel look on the exterior, complete with steel molecule graphics
