The SEMA automotive accessories show is only a few weeks away, and Chevrolet has unveiled another great concept vehicle to show off the possibilities offered by genuine Chevrolet accessories. Today they revealed the 2017 Silverado 2500HD Carhartt concept which highlights the utility and durability of both brands’ products. “Thousands of people go to work every day and earn their paycheck in a Chevy truck while wearing a Carhartt,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Truck marketing director. “Those products’ durability and versatility earn respect and loyalty that’s passed on — and that’s exactly what this concept explores.” Exclusive to this Carhartt Silverado is a tonneau cover made of the same tough fabric as their jackets, as well as Carhartt gold pinstripe graphics. Additional accessories that can be added to any Silverado include trailering mirrors with camera system, black bowtie emblems, all-weather floor liners, assist steps, perimeter bed lighting, and bed-mounted toolbox and swing-out tool chest. Chevrolet has teamed up with brands in the past to develop special edition trucks, most recently with the RealTree edition Silverado currently available at Phillips Chevrolet. There is no word yet on whether the Carhartt concept Silverado will make it to production, but if it does we’ll be sure to share the news on this blog. Phillips Chevrolet of Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Silverado HD currently in stock.

Automotive research company iSeeCars.com recently conducted a study comparing the prices of new vehicles versus one-year-used cars to see which vehicles best retained their value after a year on the road. With only a 7% difference in price between new and used, the Chevrolet Colorado came out on top of the study. At the opposite end of the spectrum, many vehicles showed a one-year depreciation greater than 30%. Since its return for the 2015 model year, the Chevy Colorado has been flying off the lot thanks to its well-rounded combination of power and efficiency. It’s great to know that when you’re ready to move into a newer Colorado, your last one will still be highly in demand. Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Chevrolet Colorados in stock and ready to test drive today!
