THE WORK HORSE OF HORSEPOWER: Introducing the Carhartt Chevy Silverado 2500HD concept truck

Silverado 2500HD Carhartt Concept Blends Capability and Style

DETROIT - The 2017 Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept vehicle is a truck built to tackle the toughest jobs while integrating the rugged aesthetics of hard-working lifestyles, reflected in the resiliency and versatility of the iconic work jackets. “Chevrolet HD trucks are designed for hard work, and just like your favorite Carhartt, their functionality transcends the workplace to become a style statement,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck marketing director. “This concept vehicle mirrors the lifestyles of countless Chevy truck owners, demonstrating the personal connections with the tools of their trades.”

Connecting two American brands that help their owners earn a living, often simultaneously, connecting Chevrolet HD trucks and Carhartt seems as natural as unloading drywall from the bed of a Silverado 2500HD at a chilly worksite while wearing one of the renowned work jackets. “Thousands of people go to work every day and earn their paycheck in a Chevy truck while wearing a Carhartt,” said Piszar. “Those products’ durability and versatility earn respect and loyalty that’s passed on — and that’s exactly what this concept explores.”

Durability is expressed in the texture of the concept’s distinctively trimmed Jet Black interior, which features Carhartt’s signature duck brown garment material on the seats, armrests and door panel inserts, with triple-stitched seams just like the jackets. The Carhartt logo is laser-etched on the headrests, while antique nickel-finish trim is used on the doors, center console and instrument panel. "When Carhartt and Chevy started working together on this concept truck, we quickly realized that our mutual respect for hardworking people and the utility they expect from our brands would equal the ultimate truck for anyone who works and plays in the rugged outdoors,” said Tony Ambroza, senior vice president of marketing at Carhartt. “For more than 127 years, Carhartt has designed workwear by solving for the needs and practical ways hardworking people use every product we make, and that’s the same kind of thinking we applied to this collaboration.”

Carhartt’s tough fabric is also used for a custom concept tonneau cover.
