Chevrolet debuts new 2015 Silverado Rally Editions

Chevrolet revealed some new special edition versions of the Silverado pickup truck in double-cab and crew-cab form.

Called the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Editions, the new versions include upgrades equal to stylistic appearance packages, featuring a list of visual upgrades from the factory and some extra options added to the standard list.

Three trim levels exist: Rally 1 Edition, LT Rally 1 Edition, and LT Rally 2 Edition with the Rally1 Edition starting life off as a Silverado L. It then receives a body color-matching grille and lots of blacked out trimmings such as new bowtie logos, black door handles, black mirror caps and accompanying body stripes.

The next level of more begins as a LT-spec Silverado. Included in the package is a rear-view facing camera, an electric rear defroster, Chevy’s trailering package complete with a tow-hook setup and locking rear diff, and 17-inch alloy wheels with a black finish.

The full loaded LT Rally 2 Edition adds to the LT Rally 1 Edition by standardizing tubular running step boards, 22-inch black wheels, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, and remote start.

Orders are set to begin in September for the double-cabs with the crew-cabs following in October.

Rally Editions Add Black Bowtie, New Attitude to 2015 Silverado

2014-08-21

DETROIT – Chevrolet Silverado Rally Editions bring a sharp new appearance to 1500 double-cab and crew-cab pickups.

The Rally 2 Edition package for 2015 Silverado LT pickups features a body-colored grille with a black bowtie, 22-inch black alloy wheels, black tubular side steps and black mirror caps and door handles. Twin black Rally stripes on the hood and tailgate give the Rally Edition a unique appearance.

Also included will be  a trailering package with a hitch and automatic locking rear differential, 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone climate control, remote start, backup camera and rear defroster. The eight-inch Chevy MyLink radio includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity.

The standard engine for Silverado is a 4.3-Liter EcoTec3 V-6. With 285-horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, providing up to 7,200 pounds of towing, based on SAE J2807 Recommended Practices. Like all EcoTec3 engines, the V-6 can seamlessly switch to four-cylinder mode to save fuel under light-load driving, delivering EPA highway estimates of up to 24 mpg.

Also available is a 5.3L Ecotec3 V-8. Rated at 355 horsepower, it provides the best fuel economy of any V-8 pickup, up to 23 MPG EPA highway.

“Silverado won more awards in 2014 than any other pickup, including North American Truck of the Year,” said John Fitzpatrick, Silverado senior marketing manager. “The Rally Edition packages will let customers add an aggressive new look to this great all-around performer.”

Silverado will also offer two Rally 1 packages for 2015. The package for LT Silverados includes a body-colored grill with a black bowtie, black door handles and mirror caps, stripes and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Also included is a trailering package with a hitch and locking rear differential, rear defroster and backup camera.

The Rally 1 Edition package for 2015 Silverado LS models includes the body-colored grille with black bowtie, black door handles and mirror caps and two black rally stripes.

Double-cab Rally Editions can be ordered by Chevrolet dealers nationwide starting on September 4. Crew cabs will be available for order in early October.

Silverado is the most dependable, longest-lasting pickup on the road, and all 2015 Silverados will come with the best pickup coverage in America, including a three-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and two-year/24,000-mile recommended scheduled maintenance.
