The Chevrolet Silverado has won over the heart of America, and its name has become synonymous with quality, durability, and strength.
What started in 1999 as a new player to the full-sized pickup truck game, the Silverado 1500 transformed itself into one of General Motors’ best selling vehicles of all time, making the full-sized pickup truck a staple on the American roadway.
Thanks to constantly evolving technology, Chevrolet has managed to create a Silverado that is more lightweight, yet stronger than ever before. The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado offers drivers more customization with specialized packages, and special-edition models exclusive to the 2015 model year.
Whether it’s utilized on the farm, construction site, or commuting to work in style - the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is a full-size pickup truck to be reckoned with.
The 2015 model represents the second year of the truck’s third generation. Chevrolet packed the 2015 Silverado with updates and changes to make it an even better pickup truck. While the convenience technologies like built-in 4G LTE WiFi and OnStar are impressive additions to this model year, one of the more notable technologies is one that isn’t easily noticed by the naked eye.
Hydroforming technology was incorporated into the design of the 2015 Silverado, making it more lightweight than ever before. Despite losing a few pounds this model year, Chevy did not sacrifice a bit of strength with this metal-shaping technology, but rather increased efficiency and durability. Reserved mainly for high-end sports cars, hydroforming was employed by General Motors to help shape the frame of the Silverado in order to actually increase strength and fuel efficiency.
Chevy also made some changes in the materials used to shape the Silverado. Helping the pickup shed nearly 250 pounds by utilizing a special aluminum material and composites, Chevy said goodbye to conventional steel and hello to the future. The coupling of hydroforming and aluminum material makes for a highly efficient and lightweight pickup truck, without sacrificing strength, aesthetics, or power.
One of the best parts of owning a full size pickup truck? Taking it off the beaten path to let it do what it was made to do. The Silverado thrives in the off-road environment on its own, but Chevy recognized that America’s favorite pick-up truck needed a little something extra to cater to the off-road junkies out there.
That desire for customization and a better off-road experience came together to create the custom, off-road-ready 2015 Silverado “Reaper” edition.
The special edition truck is a collaboration between the company Ligenfelter, and Southern Comfort Automotive, an Alabama-based custom truck shop. Using the crew cab Silverado with the short bed box as the blank canvas, the Reaper was further improved by incorporating the following:
The Reaper package is similar to that of the Ford Raptor, but goes above and beyond the competition with the level of quality customization and attention to detail.
One thing Chevrolet and General Motors recognizes, is that no two people are alike. The 2015 Silverado exudes that frame of thinking, by being offered in many different trim levels, and special editions.
