Chevrolet announces new Silverado Rally Edition pick-up for 2015


I really couldn't tell you if this is Chevy's production response to the Ford F-150 Tremor since the look is similar, but the execution is very different. The Chevy Cheyenne Concept, shown at SEMA, is more like the Tremor than the truck you see here, the 2015 Silverado Rally Edition which will come in Rally 1 (while truck) and Rally 2 (red truck) iterations. The Rally 1 Silverado (see the white truck after the jump) gets a body-colored grille with black bowtie logo, black door handles, mirror caps, and two black rally stripes. The Rally 2 version gets all that plus 22-inch black alloy wheels and black tubular side steps. Both packages also include the trailering package with a hitch and automatic locking rear differential, 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone climate control, remote start, backup camera, rear defroster, and the eight-inch Chevy MyLink radio that includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity. The Rally Editions come standard with the 4.3-Liter EcoTec3 V-6 (285-horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque) and a six-speed automatic, while the 5.3L Ecotec V-8 (355 hp) is optional. Basically this is an appearance group that gives the '15 Silverado pick-up a dash of style, especially in Rally 2 guise. The Silverado Rally Editions will come in the Double-Cab (available September) and Crew Cab (available October) body configurations. If this is what you've been waiting for, get to your Chevy dealer today for availability and pricing info.

Press Release:
Rally Editions Add Black Bowtie, New Attitude to 2015 Silverado


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.
