2016 Chevrolet Silverado “Kid Rock” Design
Introduced at this year’s SEMA Show of Turkish products in Las Vegas, this particular Chevrolet Silverado was made in cooperation with legendary musician Kid Rock and, as his song says, entitled American Badass. Many probably already now say the Americans punished Volkswagen, and see what they do and would be quite right. However, EPA standards are different and are not very strict for commercial vehicles, and in many cases, if the weight of the vehicle exceeds a certain number, they are almost non-existent. But that is where Ford saw its chance and presented the ultimatum pickup today.
A detail that attracts the most attention is certainly double tailpipe behind the cab in the style of the truck and at first glance reminds us of the product with which they could “rollin ‘coal’. If you are not familiar with these detailed, not to mention that it is a pick-up in which the owners removed all the technology for emissions control in order to pick smoky as possible. However, Chevrolet says this is not the case and that Silverado “Kid Rock” meets the exhaust emission standards.
The pick-up also offers a unique chrome bumpers with inscription “Born Free,” which is the name of another Kid Rock songs, and at the door there is a large American flag. SEMA also features two ATV on the trailer that was attached to the Silverado, but these were not disclosed details of none. Chevrolet has not released pictures of the interior, but says that he packed his gear and inscriptions Made in Detroit.
US carmaker has not released details of mechanics, and it is assumed that the pick-up runs identical 6.6L Duramax V8 diesel engine with 397 hp and 1,037 Nm of torque, and a six-speed automatic transmission. In the end, we mention that Kid Rock was inspired after visiting Chevrolet plant in Flint, the US state of Michigan (where he was born). He called this the best experience in my life, which says a lot about a person who at one time was married to Pamela Anderson.
