Chevrolet is using the 2014 Silverado full-size pickup to explore the extremes of preparedness with the Volunteer Firefighter and Black Ops concepts shown publicly for the first time at the State Fair of Texas.
Chevrolet developed the Silverado Z71 Volunteer Firefighter concept truck, which honours the service of grassroots first responders, with input from the National Volunteer Fire Council. The concept vehicle features a full complement of rescue equipment incorporated on a new Silverado Double Cab equipped with the Z71 Off Road suspension.
The Black Ops concept is based on the Silverado Crew Cab 4×4, with newly added features including custom-fabricated lower body armour and a lockable, bed-mounted Truck Vault storage unit. It holds a solar power pack, a pair of gas masks, gloves, military First Aid Kit, folding shovel and rope.
